Hippies rejoice! On this 2-hour private walking tour of Golden Gate Park and Haight-Ashbury, you’ll follow in the footsteps on peace, love, and happiness…. well almost.

Your private guide will walk you through Haight-Ashbury, widely-known as the birthplace of the modern-day hippie. As we wander down Haight Street you will have the chance to stop at one of the many thrift shops and other quirky stores. Be prepared to smell the pungent odor of weed along our journey.

If your legs are still feeling fresh, we’ll continue on to Alamo Square to end the tour with a picture the beautiful Painted Ladies, a stunning row of Victorian homes with the perfect city skyline as a backdrop.

It was like uncovering the whole new level to the city. Something you won't find in any touristy guidebooks or even travel websites. A certainly entertaining, extremely informative and interesting tour.
