Gay Travel: Free, Fabulous Walking Tours in San Francisco
When I first moved to San Francisco in 2009, I was committed to learning about the history of my new hometown. I soon discovered San Francisco CityGuides, a remarkable resource for locals and tourists alike, which offers over 50 different walking tours - all at no charge. The itineraries (typically 90 minutes long) range from stalwart sightseers' favorites - the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown - to unexpected forays that will delight even longtime residents, including "City Scapes and Public Places," which includes visits to several semi-secret roof gardens in the midst of the Financial District.

Up to a dozen different tours are offered between early morning and late afternoon, every day of the year with the exception of major holidays.

Before leading their first tour, each of the 34-year-old non-profit's 200+ volunteer guides is required to take an intensive, months-long training program that immerses them in the history, architecture, and sociology of San Francisco as a whole, and also requires research on the specific topics and places they'll be introducing to their tour groups.
