Once a desolate swath of sand dunes and nothingness, William Hammond Hill and his assistant John McLaren began plans in 1870 to transform the land into the lush, vibrant park that exists today. Your tour guides will regale you with entertaining tales of the park’s stewards over the years, and the uphill battles the grounds faced to get it to its current state.
This tour leads small groups of no more than eight riders per guide to ensure a personal experience. To ensure you don’t miss any part of the narration, each guest gets a radio receiver with an earbud. The company even offers jackets, hats, and gloves to keep you warm and snug on those chilly San Francisco days. As you head out west toward the beach, you may encounter more of the city’s famous fog, so you’ll definitely appreciate the warmth as well as the experienced navigation!
