SightSeeing Tours For Serious Walkers

Power Walking Photo Excursion Tours

Site Content


What We Do

We do photo excursion walking tours by appointment for smaller athletically inclined groups of 10 to 20 individuals. We'll meet you at your hotel or at agreed upon starting points for tours, such as, Union Square, The Ferry Building, Aquatic Park, Lands End or Golden Gate Park. Walking tours are typically 2 hours or 3.5 hours but we spent a good part of the rainy season developing vehicle assisted tours where we jump on a MUNI bus or take an Uber to cut the mileage and time commitment down. I've also been asked to break some longer walking tours up with a lunch in the middle (no Problem!). This will be my 8th year of showing visitors around San Francisco and I love every minute of it.

Website updates coming soon

The virtual tours are up and we will be adding blog items and gallery items over the next few weeks. Please contact us via email with your interests and expected arrival time in San Francisco:

Testimonials - short & sweet

Bill Bryson - UNIGLOBE Ohio Valley Travel Wheeling, WV 

"We have used Mike 7 - 8 times with our group visits to San Francisco. Would not go anywhere else. Mike is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and always prepared. Makes my job really easy. Always look forward to bringing our next group for an outstanding tour of the city by the bay.... Good Luck Mike. Bill Bryson - UNIGLOBE Ohio Valley Travel Wheeling, WV"

Great and knowledgeable guy and on time each day, great tour bus and a great guy all round." (Note: I own the domain Sully's San Francisco Tours but I now use exclusively.

Regularly scheduled tours will be back again in June

When it is raining in San Francisco you do not want to go on a walking tour and either do we. The plan is to reintroduce regularly scheduled tours when all the tourists get here in June. Currently all tours are by appointment so what do you want to see? We're also adding DSLR and film photo excursion tours with professional photographers mainly for tricky sunset and sunrise shoots. Feel free to ask us about it or simply request a pro when you email us. These tours have less walking and more camera instruction and help with settings and set up.
