San Francisco Tours (Russian, English)

Victorian houses in San Francisco (California, USA)

Native of Leningrad, Russia, I have lived in San Francisco, California, for more than 25 years. Here, I offer our guests and tourists custom, group, private and personal tours of San Francisco, its vicinities and all California in both, English and Russian languages.

San Francisco Excursions

On our tours you will learn about cultural life of San Francisco, diversity of its architectural styles, its history, customs and character. I will advise on the places where you can enjoy the rest of your stay in San Francisco, where to eat, where to go and what else to see.

My tours are not boring!

Besides well known and advertised attractions of San Francisco I will show you my own "catches" that I selected piece by piece during many years.

I also offer boat tours of San Francisco Bay, where you can enjoy a unique panorama of San Francisco.

During our city tour I will show you the sources of the city’s pride and beauty: the mosaic of architectural styles, including the ornate Victorian, the Beaux-Arts, and the Art Deco; the famous Golden Gate Bridge, the Golden Gate Park (the largest park in the world built entirely by human hand), where one can enjoy the beautiful Japanese garden, the English Crystal Pavillion, the bison meadow, and numerous species of plants at home in our mild climate; and Notre Dame des Victoires, fashioned after Notre Dame de Paris.

We will cross the Golden Gate Bridge and visit the luxurious and picturesque city of Sausalito situated right on the shore of the San Francisco Bay in Marin County, north of San Francisco. The San Francisco panorama from Sausalito is wonderfully unique; you will be able to admire once more this indescribably beautiful city from a new perspective.

San Francisco gives rise to impressions of Paris, Rome, Tokyo, Shanghai, London, Mexico, and even Suzdal.

New York’s late mayor, Fiorello La Guardia, once said: "God collected the beauty of the Nile shores, Naples, and Switzerland Alps all in one place and created San Francisco".

We have our own Grace Cathedral and even Russian Orthodox Church Cathedral.

Let's go to the Wine Country of Napa Valley!

I am at your service to meet at the airport and help with hotel accommodations. I will do my best, so after the tour you will be another guest of mine to say:

"I left my heart in San Francisco".

P.S. Besides tours of San Francisco in Russian and English languages, I also offer tours of the wine valley of California - the famous Napa Valley that bears striking resemblance to Tuscany of Italy and Bordeaux of France.
