Hello Pete, Thanks for leaving this review. You sound upset, and I don't blame you, I would be too. But if you are upset with us, it is only because you are not getting the whole story. No one at Viator filled you in on...More

Great local tour filled with local color and cuisine. Each tour is unique and the company is constantly changing where they take customers. We sampled local Salvadorian, Burmese, Southern BBQ, Spanish tapas, and locally made chocolate. At most stops we both sampled their traditional faire...More

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
