I participated in Isaac Wigley's Victorian walking tour, he is quite knowledgeable, very personable, warm personality, thoroughly enjoyed the walk and learning about the different styles of Victorians.

This was a great experience even on a rather drizzly day. Marilyn's mastery of the territory was impressive: she led us on a comfortable route, at a good pace, told us more than I could absorb (not a bad thing; I'd like to do this again!), answered all our questions. I can't imagine seeing this much of the Victorian houses, or learning as much about San Francisco history, in such a relatively short period of time any other way. Marilyn's friendly personality, attentiveness to our needs, and obvious delight in sharing her knowledge about these neighborhoods resulted in an even-better-than-anticipated walk. I hope to bring my husband next time I go to san Francisco; I know he'd enjoy the Victorian Home Walk as much as I did.

Even if you've only got a few days in SF, do take time out to go on Jay's walking tour of the Victorians. My daughter and I just had 3 days in the city having flown in from NY for an extended weekend.
Our group of around a dozen people were given an amazing two hours of facts and views of the Victorian Quarter and would highly recommend this to all age groups.

If I get back again I'll definately do it again !

Very relaxed easy going walking tour of a great cross section of different homes in SF along with historical and some design background. Isaac was enthusiastic, friendly, approachable and very easy going which set a great tone for the tour. It didn't hurt that it was a perfect weather day. It was a very relaxing enjoyable and informative couple of hours.

Jay was well versed in his knowledge of the architecture and history of the homes on the tour - not to mention his eager enthusiasm. The walk was well-paced for every age member of the very large group. We were maybe 30 people, the largest group Jay has ever had. Normally his groups are 5-10, he said. He handled the group size extremely well, and nobody was lost in the shuffle.
