School Tour Booking Information

Thank you for your inquiry about a school tour with SF City Guides. We offer some of our most popular tours for school students and other small groups from fourth grade through high school: Chinatown, Gold Rush City, 1906 Earthquake and Fire, and Golden Gate Bridge.

All school tours are about 1 hour and content is adjusted for younger audiences.

If you wish to schedule a tour, please provide ALL of the following City Guides booking information:

  1. The tour you wish (see above)
  2. Your preferred date and time (four to six week lead time is suggested)
  3. School/Group name and size, contact person's name and email, and the cell phone number of one of the accdompanying adults

Once we receive your City Guides Booking Information,we will try to accommodate your preferences. You will be notified within 10 business days from the date of your initial emailed tour request as to whether City Guides can fulfill your request.

To be clear, all City Guides are volunteers; therefore there is a small chance that we will not be able to fulfill your request, even after an exhaustive search for guides. As soon as we have confirmed a guide(s), we will email you a confirmation.

City Guides Cancellation Policy:

  1. If in an emergency a guide cannot do the tour, the requestor will be contacted and the tour can be rescheduled or the payment will be refunded.

  2. If there is heavy rain or other unforeseen events, the guide will call the requestor and reschedule or the payment will be refunded.

  3. If the guide is willing to do the tour and the requestor is not, the deposit is forfeited.

We thank you for your interest in our tours.

Volunteer Coordinator for City Guides School Tours
