Vad du kommer att göra

Thinking of gathering friends or co-workers for a great hike and picnic? We’re entirely outdoors in the fresh air!

*Friday 10/8 includes air show viewing w/food & drink at the end

Hike with me through the Presidio of San Francisco! Its rich history and glorious landscape (not to mention that bridge!) makes it one of the most popular SF locations to visit as well as to live, and we'll show you why.

We'll start at the historic main entrance at Lombard and Lyon streets, then continue on through the Lucas Arts campus, with a stop at the popular Yoda Fountain.

I’ll introduce you to the old hospital district, continue on to the Main Post with a walk through a historic neighborhood built during the Civil War, then the oldest part of the Presidio and the archaeology dig of the Spanish era fort. Along the way I’ll share stories of this historic park.

Then it's a walk to the National Cemetery where we'll share stories of those buried here, then hike up, up, up to the Cemetery Lookout where we'll eat lunch while taking in a spectacular view (You'll want to pack a lunch or heavy snacks!).

I’ll point out places and things that make the Presidio so special before making our way to my Pilot's Row home for beverages, and finally to the Golden Gate Bridge.

No other tour will give you the perspective of living here across from the Golden Gate Bridge!

Hi I'm Julie, owner of JB Walking tours! (www.jbwalkingtours.com) As both a long-time resident of the Presidio and former General Manager of the Presidio Officers' Club, I have a unique perspective and intimate knowledge of the Presidio's quirky neighborhoods and curious history.

I also live in a historic home in the park, built in 1921 and it’s literally across the street from the Golden Gate Bridge, so you’ll really get an insiders view unlike any other tour!

Loved this tour!! Julie has immense knowledge on the history of Presidio and all of it ties so well together to create a captivating story. The walk went by so fast and was not as tiring as I expected it to be. Julie was very accommodating and patient as we took our time to walk on steep heels. We took several stops and truly enjoyed this in-dept tour of the town. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants to explore Presidio, learn some history and get dropped off at the Golden Gate Bridge to continue exploring SF!

The tour of the Presidio was an amazing journey into the past of San Fransisco. Julie did a fantastic job of making us feel like we were apart of the history of the area. She used past pictures to bring us back in time. She showed us the effort that was taken to keep the property as it was over 100 years ago. I would recommend Julie for all visitors of the area that want to have a fun and informative tour of the Presidio.

One of my favorite tours ever. Julie is a passionate guide who knows the history & secrets of the Presidio & Golden Gate area as a longtime resident. The walk is perfect with natural vistas, breathtaking views & lots of variety. I loved the secret pet cemetery & the gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge. From the Yoda fountain to a historic murder trial to lots of captured Spanish cannons, this tour is captivating.

My tour with Julie ended up being just her and I, which gave us the opportunity to adjust the tour a bit and have a more personalized experience. I cannot even compliment her enough on her knowledge, friendliness, the route she chose, all of it!!! She was gracious enough to give me a couple extra hours of her time just to make sure I experienced the highlights of San Fran!!! Julie really made my trip excellent! Thank you again Julie!!!

The Presidio is a magical place and Julie makes the magic come alive. History, natural beauty, great stories . . . it's all there. This is a "must" tour for everyone who wants to get to know the Presidio better.
