Our Story

SF Native Tours was founded by families who have been walking in the City of San Francisco for over 150 years. Each guide has a personal family story that connects you with the heart and soul of the city.

The great-great-grandparents of SF Native Tours founder who came to San Francisco during the Gold Rush.

The great-great-grandparents of SF Native Tours founder who came to San Francisco during the Gold Rush.

 

Our families first came out for the Gold Rush in the 1800's. After trying out the mining industry during the Gold Rush, our families continued to pursue their new American dreams in San Francisco.

Since 1850, our families have opened multiple businesses, established schools, founded historical landmarks, were local medical leaders, and contributed continuously to the San Francisco community.

On each of our tours, our local guides share our family stories, creating a personal connection to the history, heart, and soul of San Francisco.
