What to expect

This is the perfect tour for anyone who wants to go behind closed doors and take an intimate look at the history of San Francisco and its inhabitants.

Your day begins at Lafayette Park where you’ll meet your small group of 20 people and take in a slew of different Victorian mansions from the outside, including the famous (and jaw-dropping) Spreckels mansion. After a few pictures of the fantastic views over San Francisco Bay, you’ll pass some of the famous row houses and learn how much money it takes to afford your own slice of a San Francisco Victorian as you stop off at Cottage Row, a hidden street lined with homes that have stood here since the 1800s.

Your next stop is the highlight of the trip. Your guide has secured special access to a privately owned Victorian mansion that has been lovingly restored and features a jaw-dropping private collection of Victorian artifacts and knick-knacks. The tour, which is guided by the home’s owner, is completely exclusive and it's the experience of a lifetime for any lover of Victoriana. Your final stop is the famous Alamo Square, home to the “Painted Ladies” which you will recognize from television and postcards. Approaching from the very best viewpoint, you’ll be able to take your own postcard-perfect pictures with this unforgettable backdrop.
