Tenderloin Walking Tours

Please Make a Donation

Tenderloin Walking Tours try to present the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco in a favorable setting. Among the grit, grime and crime concentrated in an 8 by 8 square block area of one of the world’s most expensive cities, we offer four different tours which show the upward social situations alongside the negative. Tour stops may also include the site of the birth of the LGBT movement in the United States, San Francisco’s first luxury hotel for African Americans during Jim Crow segregation, the most dangerous corner in California according to the Attorney General’s office, theaters where the Marx Brothers and Bob Hope performed, the filming site of the first full-length “adult movie” and a “sweat shop” where hundreds of garments are produced daily by a small army of immigrant Asian women yet labeled “Made in China.”  Tenderloin Walking Tours has been featured by The New York Times, Huffington Post, Bloomberg Business, CNBC, and the San Francisco Chronicle.
