Your Itinerary

Mission Dolores

The tour starts at Mission San Francisco de Asis (also known as Mission Dolores), one of the oldest buildings in San Francisco. This chapel is home to exclusive religious art, and we will explore the rich history. You will be able to enjoy its gardens and explore the only cemetery within the city limits.

Mission Dolores Park

Just two blocks away you will find Mission Dolores Park. Formerly a Jewish Cemetery. Now one of the most popular and crowded parks in San Francisco. Spring and Summer months see the grass-lined with blankets as the locals enjoy community and sport. Moving through the park, we will pass Father Hidalgo’s statute making our way to see the “Golden Fire Hydrant”. This fire hydrant located at Church St. & 20th was the only functioning hydrant during the 1906 earthquake & fire.

Mission District

We depart Mission Dolores Park to explore the surrounding neighborhoods where you will find extraordinary street art. You will enjoy the hidden wonders inside the Mission as well as the Mission Community pool, Bnai David’s Synagogue, and the Women’s building which hosts one of the most famous murals in San Francisco. Our next stop will be at Café de Olla in the heart of the Mission. Café de Olla Restaurant makes everything from scratch, honoring the Oaxacan style cuisine where you will be tempted to taste typical Mexican dishes such as Quesadillas, Tamales, Tlayudas, and Tortillas, along with typical beverages such as Agua Fresca, Ice Caffe da Olla, and many other options. Cheer up and taste the “Chapulines”!!!

Balmy Alley Murals

Finally, you will arrive at the most popular area, 24th Street that connects Mission Street with Potrero Street. Along this 8-block stretch, you will be faced with so many tantalizing choices; tacos at La Taqueria or rather pick up some pastry at La Reina Bakery or some coffee at the original Philz Coffee shop. Before the end of this awesome trip, our tour guide will show you the amazing Balmy Alley. On this famous Mission District Street, you will be amazed by an extensive collection of murals. Most of them are an expression of outrage over human rights violations and political abuses in Central America.

What a great tour. We started at Mission Dolores and ended up on Balmy Street. Joseph was our guide. He knew the history of San Francisco. He answered all our questions and was accolading when my Burrito came out wrong (Not his fault). As a native of San Francisco and my church in the area I never knew so much history was in the Mission. Thank you Joseph
