Walking Tours with Personality in Boston and San Francisco!

by zerveian on June 27, 2014

When it comes to walking tours, an excellent guide is just as important as the city he’s showing you! We’ve found a couple of the nation’s most shining personalities in tourism to share with you today. Pay a visit and experience a tour with charisma to spare!

San Francisco, CA: SK Morton’s Lousy San Francisco Walking Tour

The hilarious SK Morton is at work on a book called I Left My Heart In San Francisco and All I Got Was This Lousy Rash, and he brings the same information and offbeat sense of humor to his walking history tours of the City by the Bay. From Downtown to Chinatown and beyond, SK is your go-to guy for a laugh and some local knowledge.
