Travel around San Francisco on an electric tuk-tuk for a different way to explore the city. With the easy transportation of a motorized vehicle, you can cover more ground than you would on a walking or bike tour but still enjoy the open-air atmosphere. On board this 3-wheeled 'e-tuk,' aka auto rickshaw, you'll cruise through North Beach, the Mission District, Castro, and Chinatown, and make six photo stops at locations including the Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street, and Pacific Heights.
What to Expect

We’ll meet you outside of your hotel or AirBnB at your chosen tour time, where we’ll board the E-Tuk and travel to our first stop.

During the tour your guide will share stories, history and recommendations about some of San Francisco’s most iconic neighborhoods. We will be sure to show you our favorite places to grab a memorable photo to share with your friends and family.

At the conclusion of the ride we’ll head back to the starting point and provide a list of restaurants and museums for the remainder of your stay.  

Here are the places we will explore (photo stops noted by *):

Lombard Street**

Nicknamed "The crookedest street in the world" - one of San Francisco's most popular landmarks - **during busy months, traffic may prevent us from going down.

Palace of Fine Arts*

Inspired by Roman and Greek architecture, the Palace of Fine Arts was originally constructed to celebrate San Francisco's recovery from the 1906 earthquake.

Golden Gate Bridge - Fort Point*

Located just beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Point gives you a front row seat to the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.

Coit Tower*

This art deco tower located on Telegraph Hill offers one of the best views in the entire city. (Unfortunately we do not have time to go up to the tower).

Pacific Heights*

Offering one of the most scenic outlooks in all of Northern California, Pacific Heights is home to Billionaire's Row, featuring the estates of politicians and tech titans.

Mrs. Doubtfire House

This stately home was built in 1893 and starred in the 1993 movie Mrs. Doubtfire with Robin Williams and Sally Field.


Boasting the largest Chinatown in the United States, this 24-block mecca is bustling with energy, amazing food, and unique and colorful shops that give this area its charm.

North Beach - Little Italy

Voted as one of the USA's "ten great neighborhoods", North Beach is best known as the home of Little Italy. Delicious restaurants to authentic sidewalk cafes abound.

The Mission*

Known for its prominent and colorful mural installations, delicious food, and vibrant art and music scene, The Mission embodies the culture of old and new San Francisco.

The Castro

One of the first gay neighborhoods in the United States. Colorful bars and restaurants line the streets, with the historic Castro Theater overlooking the area that Harvey Milk once called home.

Haight Ashbury*

The origin of the hippie culture and the birth place of the "Summer of Love." From the stunning Painted Ladies to the homes of music's favorite 60's bands, this district started the counter-culture movement across the USA.

Hi Claire, You definitely don't see the Muir woods on the tuk tuk tour. We liked the tuk tuk versus a mini bus because it was geared towards what we wanted to see, and if we wanted to get out and walk around or just drive... More

The driver told us where to sit if we didn't want to get too much wind, and there was a blanket.
