    This tour was very informative and blended interesting trivia with big moments in San Francisco history during the Harvey Milk era and the AIDS epidemic. Our guide touched on important topics with grace. The attendees were diverse, both in geography and age. It included two elementary-school aged kids. There was about 5 minutes where their mother took them away from the group as adult topics were being discussed, but it was a short time and the family seemed to enjoy the entire tour. The tour starts and ends right in the heart of the Castro, which made it very easy for us to find something to do after the tour concluded. My friend and I both really enjoyed this tour!

    I as the only person on this tour so it was very special to be able to have such a personal tour. I had this trip cancelled the time before I was in San Francisco so it was doubly a pleasure this time. Definitely learnt so much about the history. A must for me to do the next time I am there

    For anyone visiting San Francisco who is a member of the Rainbow community, has loved ones who are or simply wishes to learn more about the Castro or the gay rights movement, this tour is an absolute must do! Kathy is an extraordinarily warm, knowledgable and attentive tour guide!
