:: San Francisco in French – San Francisco by Foot – San Francisco Off Road :: 

Original and unforgettable urban hikes to discover San Francisco:

in French, by foot, and off the beaten path


San Francisco by Gilles offers quality guided tours in San Francisco, by foot and exclusively in French.

You can choose from a variety of half-day or full-day tours, in groups or privately, or even tours designed to fit your interest.


Away from the crowds, in small groups, your guide will be like a friend acquainting you with his city.


From the calm waters of the bay to the waves of the Pacific, from the imposing buildings in downtown to the residential neighborhoods and from the top of the hills to the valleys, your guide will share with you his fascination and deep knowledge of the "City by the Bay".


During the many stops of the tour, your guide will make you discover San Francisco through its history, geography, bay, islands, multi-cultural and multi-ethnic population, memorable characters (some of them quite eccentric – be prepared!), colorful architecture, skyscrapers and Victorian residences, bridges and stairways, alleys and parks, stories of love and treason, scandals and treachery, discriminatory and emancipating ordinances, secrets, history myths and reality, mother nature’s whims… and so many other subjects from the past and the present that make of San Francisco one of the most stunning cities in the world.


Our guided tours are more like urban treks – the best alternative to the typical tour, often crowded, rushing you all over the place in large buses and with innumerable tourist traps.


So that you can have more flexibility and be able to see more of San Francisco, some of our tours gently combine walking with public transportation. Enjoy the ride mixing with San Franciscans in a historic tramway or sliding up and down the hills on the signature Cable Car.


A tour with San Francisco by Gilles is a unique and unforgettable opportunity to immerse yourself in real San Francisco accompanied by a French private guide.
