Inspired by the free tours of Europe, this 2-hour experience is a city overview, really fun walking tour, meet-up and trip planning, all in one! The tour starts at Union Square, and ends in Chinatown at Portsmouth Square.
We’ll visit Chinatown, Downtown, Union Square and the Financial District, and give plenty of ideas of other spots to visit while you’re in San Francisco.
There is a cafe break during this tour too. Don’t worry, it’s not bad American coffee 😉
When? Every day 10 AM-12 PM
Where? Union Square (corner of Post and Powell)
Be careful! There is another free tour company meeting at the same spot.
Look for our yellow Wild SF flag!
Why Wild SF Tours? We got bored of tours that are just history lessons. We talk about architecture, underground history, heroes and villains, city development, plus forgotten pioneers, groundbreaking policies, and practical advice on how to use public transit and ride the cable cars, where to find cool bars and cheap restaurants, and so much more.
Designed with backpackers and solo travelers in mind, you’ll make new friends and see some of our favorite secret spots in of San Francisco.
Why is it free? We want everyone to experience San Francisco and what makes it an amazing city. On this free tour, you just tip your guide whatever the tour was worth to you. Most people tip $10-15 per person, but it’s completely up to you.Book now
A screenwriter, director and educator, Andrew “Fischer” Wong’s craft has taken him far–including Cannes Film Festival, where he premiered one of his short films. He studied film and cinematography at SF State, and when not directing, pursues photography and food (he’s obsessed with Anthony Bourdain). Armed with a sharp wit and knee-slapping jokes, Fischer leads epic journeys on our Food Crawl and Free SF Tour.
Artist and actress Mina can usually be found with a coffee in one hand and a drawing utensil in the other. With a passion for creating, she found her niche in technical theatre and moved to SF to study costume design. When she’s not creating costumes or building sets for the stage, she turns her focus to playwriting and improv to bring characters to life. She can be found on the Food Crawl and Free SF Tour.
