The tour guide Kathy was very welcoming and had a lovely way with her. She explained clearly the significance of features and figures from the Castro district and handled often difficult subjects sensitively.The tour is obviously an LGBT+ themed tour but there was a good mix of local and regional issues as well as historical context and contemporary themes.The stops were wide ranging and interesting and it’s a very diverse narrative. I highly recommend it.

Kathy is one of the most engaging guides I've experienced. She's been doing this for a while and she really knows her stuff. She's full of great stories, neighbourhood information and LGBTQ history. I've been to SF a few times and I've never known some of the history we learned about. A terrific introduction to the Castro. Highly recommended.

Small group tour with a captivating guide who provided a breadth of history and knowledge. She promoted discussion and debate and cover a long and colourful history of the area. This tour far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone remotely interested in the history. I went with my partner but there were people in the group who were alone. It was a very inclusive experience.

All the history and hidden gems of the castro . The tour guide was so informative and friendly. Also, the group felt very close and familiar to the point that at the end it felt sad to leave and part ways.
