The Original Tenderloin/Mid-Market Walking Tour takes you on a journey of discovery, revealing the true nature of a much-maligned, often avoided and almost always overlooked neighborhood. The thirty-one blocks of the Tenderloin district are the beating heart of a city peopled by immigrants and iconoclasts, artists and activists, sinners and saints. Its history plays an integral part in the growth and development of the City, the Bay Area, California and the US. Our Tenderloin/Mid-Market Walking Tours have guided over 45,000 people through tours of the Tenderloin. The tours have brought people into the Tenderloin neighborhood to inform, entertain, and sometimes completely astound them with visions and stories of the people who have helped shape the neighborhood, and also those who live and work there today. This is an amazing part of San Francisco. The tour tells you all about it.
