On this guided walking tour through San Francisco's vibrant Castro district you'll visit the Castro Theatre, one of San Francisco's premier movie houses, which gave the neighborhood its name.

Harvey Milk, San Francisco's icon and civil rights leader, was a profound contributor to the history of the Castro. On this tour you will have the opportunity to visit Harvey Milk's residence, his photo shop and campaign headquarters.

Other Castro landmarks you will see on this historical walking tour include the Pink Triangle Memorial Park (a triangular free-standing memorial to thousands of gay men persecuted in Nazi camps of World War II), and the legendary Twin Peaks Tavern (First gay bar in America to have glass windows).

All tours are incredibly informative and empowering. Public walkways are wheelchair accessible.

Fun, fascinating, and fact filled tour of San Francisco's Castro district. Very knowledgeable yet fun tour guide! You get to see an important chapter in American history as well as a vital living community. Recommended for both members and non-members of the LGBT community!

This was amazing! A must do for all who have an interest in the Castro and in GLBT history. The tour was very informative and at times moving as the decades of world changing history are revealed. The guide Kathy was so lovely and the tour moved at a comfortable pace.
