Vad du kommer att göra

Join me as we explore the legendary North Beach and Chinatown districts of San Francisco through a literary lens.

I've been a part of the community for three decades. I'm a local author and radio personality who is well known in the neighborhood. I know where the bodies are buried and where the history lives.

Great for groups and team building. English and literature classes, corporate teams, 1st amendment lovers, educators.

Mark Twain. Maya Angelou, Robert Frost, Jack Kerouac, John Steinbeck, Allen Ginsburg, Amy Tan, Dashiell Hammett: just a few of the writers who lived and worked in the neighborhoods that are still vibrant.

The tour has been praised by among others, The Guardian of London, The San Francisco Chronicle, and the San Francisco Weekly.

Places we visit include:

• City Lights Bookstore
• North Beach Mural and art installation
• Beat Museum
• The iconic Cafe Trieste
• Mark Twain's workplace
• Writer's bar, LiPo in Chinatown
• Jack Kerouac alley

The walk is mostly flat with one small hill and is about a mile and a half long.

Happy trails!

I'm vibrant and passionate about my city. Be prepared to experience the real and intimate San Francisco.

Scott was a wonderful host! When my family had some last minute schedule changes, he was very gracious and accommodating. We all learned so much and really enjoyed our time with him. Highly recommend!

Our tour with scott was amazing. We are all local to SF and found exploring the neighborhood enriching, interesting, and fun! There is so much amazing history in this neighborhood and it’s awesome to see how it is continuing to live on with the locals. We can’t wait to come back to some local coffee shops and bars too that he pointed out!

The tour was amazing. Scott was even better. His knowledge, passion, and expertise was surpassed only by his innate ability to tell a story. Highly, highly recommend this tour, even if you have limited previous knowledge about U.S literature. So much rich history in such a small section of the city, and Scott makes you think you were sipping espresso or having a cocktail (or three) with the literary greats that called San Francisco home.

fantastic activity - my parents took Scott's tour and it was a highlight of their trip to San Francisco. They have been to SF many times and enjoyed the tour immensely.

Scott has an encyclopedic knowledge of San Francisco writers and the neighborhood. He is a great story teller and was never boring. I recommend him, and if I have time, hope to take another of his tours.
