Into oza kuyenza

We will meet by the award-winning Delfina restaurant and walk to the iconic Edificio de Mujeres (Women's Building). Then we'll stroll through the famous Clarion Alley while discussing its various street murals and their lasting community impact. Next, we will visit some iconic Mission stores on Valencia Street - Paxton Gate & 826 Valencia Pirate Supply Store - before continuing onward to Dolores Park. After discussing the significance of some Dolo landmarks, we will head over to the loud & proud Castro District. Walking the rainbow-led paths of Castro Street, we'll revel in the history of the LGBTQ community & their ongoing efforts. Key points of interest include Harvey Milk Plaza, the Castro Theatre, & of course, Hot Cookie!

We'll leisurely return to 3 floors above our original meeting point: my beautiful apartment! Our tour will end with a glass of wine (or water) on a sun-lit rooftop featuring 360° views of Twin Peaks, Bernal Heights, Potrero Hill, Castro, and Downtown SF. Finally, we will share a cry as we bid farewell. Tips are not required but certainly appreciated :)

Adventure, fun surprises, and cultural immersion awaits!
Other things to note
Bring an adventurous and open mind to this event. I'm always happy to field questions during the tour, so don't be shy! And of course, I'll make special exceptions on timing if a particular stop captures you!

Anish was a fantastic guide! He had a out of knowledge and took us to interesting places. He was very down to earth and relaxed and it felt like we were taking a stroll with a friend. The whole trip was very organic and chill. We walked in the tempo we wanted and he never rushed us. He is also a great photographer! Highly recommend.

This was my second time taking this tour with Anish and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. Anish shares really interesting facts about the city, keeps you really interested, and surprises you along the way. Definitely recommended!

This tour was so fun! Anish is such a sweet, thoughtful host and he took us to some really special places in the mission district- and he really clearly loves the neighborhood. As an added bonus, we saw some naked people in the Castro which was entertaining for sure! 😂
