Tour Details

Take a relaxing walking tour of San Francisco's North Beach, a neighborhood that's the heart of the city's Italian district. You'll spend about two and a half hours visiting the various bars, pubs, and cafes in the area; there's no better way to get a taste of local life. Expect to run into some interesting characters, including local fisherman, actors, and writers. Everyone has a story to tell in this charming neighborhood. Put on some comfortable shoes and join your friendly local guide on this North Beach pub tour today.

Your San Francisco walking tour begins at Vesuvio Cafe, the birthplace of beat poetry. The bar has seen its share of celebrity patrons, including author Jack Kerouac and beat poet Neal Cassady. While there, you will get to sample Anchor Steam Ale, a popular beer that's been brewed in San Fran since 1896. After your tasting, you will stroll through North Beach. Considered San Francisco's "Little Italy", the neighborhood has come a long way. The area was once a landfill and has since transformed into a vibrant community that gave birth to the Beat Generation and other popular cultural movements.

Some of the pubs and cafes you'll visit include one of the city's oldest watering holes, a karaoke bar, and a traditional Italian cafe. Your San Francisco pub tour ends at Washington Square, a public park surrounded by even more restaurants and bars to explore after your guided adventure. If you need suggestions for post-tour dining or activities, your expert guide will gladly offer you some suggestions. Reserve your spot on this laid-back San Francisco tour for a gastronomically good time.

Please Note: This tour ends at Washington Square.
