Wes and I met in the dorms at SF State University while pursuing artistic degrees, and soon became best friends. After returning from eye-opening study abroad experiences (a year of playing songs, writing poems and falling in love across Mexico and Spain), we created Wild SF Tours: local tours for your typical wanderluster.
Wild SF became our outlet for discovery, adventure, and ensuring we’re the center of attention wherever we go. It was a great excuse to sing and share stories, meet new travelers and backpackers. And one year later, we quit our jobs and made it our livelihood.
The family has grown since then, and each tour guide we bring on is a working artist or activist bringing their own passion to the tours. Whether a dancer, musician, actor, filmmaker or community organizer, they'll share a side of San Francisco that only they could know. We understand the complexities in our communities, work to find our place in it, and utilize our team’s diversity to continuously shape the tours to best tell the story of San Francisco.
