Tenderloin Neighborhood Part I
Our free (donations welcome!), regularly scheduled tours are open to the public
but NOT open to parties of 8 or more.
If you plan to bring 8 or more walkers to a regular tour,
click here for more information on booking private group tours.
Explore the Tenderloin’s isolated rural village beginnings and its years as a quiet residential and small business neighborhood. Find out how it morphed into San Francisco’s hotel and silk stocking entertainment and vice district, how it became part of the mean streets in the last half of the 20th century, and how it is trying to reinvent itself as the entertainment and restaurant district it used to be. Learn about the days of the Uptown Tenderloin, San Francisco’s bootlegger wars, the start of the San Francisco movie industry, famous madams, neighborhood gambling and jazz clubs, and Little Saigon.
