Full day family-friendly urban trek of SF Waterfront and Bay up Telegraph Hill through North Beach and Chinatown. This route will take you through iconic San Francisco landmarks like the Ferry Building, Coit Tower, Transamerica Pyramid and Old St Mary's Church. You will also get to see Chinatown, North Beach, vestiges of the infamous Barbary Coast, a peek of the Golden Gate Bridge, and maybe even some wild parrots on Telegraph Hill.

Great Urban walk in a great city.

Never knew about the POPOS so thanks for the intro. Some of the POPOS are rather small and not as impressive as the description makes it sound. But it was fun to walk and get a history of the buildings.

This seems like a fine, quick walking tour. However, do not do it on the weekend, as most of the buildings are closed - I speak from experience. I hope to take the tour again during the week when everything is open.

The Hallidi building's facade is currently covered with scaffolding and canvas.

We had planned to take a guided tour, but last minute we were unable to find oneso I looked up the o e on this sight and it was a perfect guide. Just enough history and info for a great trip.
