Safe Touring in SF with City Guides

Touring safely is always our priority!

San Francisco City Guides always ensures the safety of its volunteer Guides and walkers. We are following the proper safety precautions during all our tours. Our Guides adhere to all guidance documented in San Francisco Department of Public Health Directive No. 2020-19 for Small Group Gatherings of less than 25 people. We have produced a video outlining our latest safety procedures.

Please familiarize yourself with our procedures. See how we practice safe touring once we’re able to do so again!
