San Francisco’s Barbary Coast


Join guide Craig Smith as we tour, walk, and explore the Ferry Building, History of Gold Museum, and Wells Fargo History Museum. 


Born during the California Gold Rush of 1849, the area of San Francisco referred to as the “Barbary Coast” was a district of saloons, clubs, bars, and brothels. With a rapid influx of treasure seekers, it took on a resemblance the Wild West with graft, gambling and lawlessness. Passing of time and government regulation has now converted these once corrupt areas to popular destinations of Chinatown and North Beach.

Join guide Craig Smith as we tour, walk, and explore its past and present including the Ferry Building, History of Gold Museum, and Wells Fargo History Museum.

A family-style lunch is included at Originals Joe’s Restaurant in North Beach.

We do not share specific pickup information on our website, as we have found over the years that other travel groups tend to use our pickup points without ours or the property owner's permission, which reflects poorly on our company and hurts our ability to offer convenient pickup points to our clients. Accordingly, we ask that you not suggest our pickup points to other groups you travel with, as "the more the merrier" does not often apply to parking lots. Your understanding is appreciated.
