We attended the Sunday tour of the nearby murals. Excellent! The guide, who was also herself a muralist, was informative and personable. The tour started with a slide show about murals which helped set the context. Great way to get to know a bit more about the Mission District and San Francisco.

See dozens of the Mission District world-famous murals up close and personal. Most docents are muralists. Get mugs and original art in the gift shop of this beloved, really grass roots nonprofit that has been one of San Francisco's most engaged, down-home art institutions. No high brow here, just passionate love for art and the history of murals and their... More

This is an interesting and eye opening education regarding the mural art of the Mission District. Patricia Rose is super passionate about the art, the artists, and the historic significance of all. I learned a great deal and gained some perspective of the history as well as the meanings behind the mural art and the latino culture from which it... More

The Mission District is a thriving multi-cultural hub of San Francisco. It has long been a place where immigrant families and artists intermingle...that is until the tech industry hipsters discovered it. The dynamic of sometimes violent native lands they escaped, their love of their neighborhood, and modern day pressures are vividly captured in murals found throughout. The Precita Eyes mural...

The murals may not be as iconic as the Golden Gate, or Alcatraz, but don't miss this area - the mission district is a gem. Precita Eyes offers walking tours for the murals for $10-20. Before the walking tour begins, the tour guide gives a short art history lesson and provides context for the murals you are about to see.... More

we reserved well ahead of time and attended, together with a dozen folks the 2PM tour. Patricia was the perfect guest, starting with a slide show (yes the real fading slides on a projector) to explain the history of the art, from prehistoric caves to more recent times, and then on a relatively relaxed tour of the area, full of...

Show the local mural artists your support and start here before going on a self-directed tour of the Murals. They also offer guides so stop by and find out when those are if you would rather see the murals that way. They have some of the murals as posters and cards, and you can also just leave a small donation... More

My two teenage daughters and I really enjoyed this tour. Carla was a great guide. The whole experience was very interesting - giving good insights into the culture and history of the Mission. Yet it was laid back and informal. We even got a great eating tip for lunch. It's also fantastic value.

Tourist attractions are fun and mostly interesting. But once in a while get into the flavor of the people of the area. Precita Eyes gives you that opportunity. It's down in the InnerMission of San Francisco. The art and culture of the Mission is there. The art center, that's what PE is, has books, art supples, original cards and postcards... More

The Mission district has a surprisingly rich history that is narrated by the beautiful murals covering the busiest corners to the hidden alleys and walkways. The tour guides from Precita Eyes are super knowledgable about art and history, and the hidden gems of the Mission. When I went on this tour I saw a completely different side of San Francisco....

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
