Walking Tour of Nob Hill - Cable Cars, Luxury Hotels, French-Gothic Cathedral

San Francisco, United States

44+ views


2 hoursMobile & paper tickets accepted

When Robert Louis Stevenson visited San Francisco in 1879, he declared, "Nob Hill, the Hill of Palaces, must certainly be counted the best part of San Francisco. It is here that millionaires gathered together, vying with each other in display". My Nob Hill tour is a 2-hour walking photo-shoot tour that starts with a Cable Car ride and a visit to a French Gothic Cathedral and ends at the Top of the Mark on the 19th floor of the InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel for photographs and beverages at sunset.

The eclectic history of Nob Hill includes:
* The Gold Rush (not the San Francisco 49r cheerleaders)
* The Silver Bonanza (not including Ben Cartwright, Ben, Hoss or Little Joe)
* The Transcontinental Railroad
* The 1906 Earthquake and Fire, and
* A spectacular French-Gothic design Episcopal Cathedral that took nearly 40 years to build.

The opportunities for photography are endless on Nob Hill!

What's Included

  • 20 of the best photos for digital download and a few specially edited photos for each person.
  • Guided sightseeing experience with a photographer, blogger, content creator and certified guide
  • Alcoholic Beverages
  • Cable Car (or Uber transportation if necessary)
  • Entry/Admission - The InterContinental Mark Hopkins building
