Real life. Real streets. Our resident historians give you an insider’s view of the Tenderloin past and present.
Our guided Walking Tours offer the best way to get to know the Tenderloin. As longtime tour guide Del Seymour says, “You’ll enjoy a Fisherman’s Wharf tour but you’ll most remember a Tenderloin tour.”
Among many highlights you’ll see the SRO where Muhammad Ali, George Foreman and Sugar Ray Robinson all boxed, some of the key sites in the launching of San Francisco’s gay and lesbian civil rights movement, the nation’s greatest collection of historic garages, and where the Grateful Dead and Miles Davis recorded legendary albums.
Our tours offer the real Tenderloin experience. After the Museum immerses you in the Tenderloin’s past, the tours enable you to connect this past to the Tenderloin’s present and future.
Tours leave promptly at 11am and 2pm. Please arrive to the Tenderloin Musuem 10 minutes before tour departure time.
