INTIMATE INTERIORS
and ONLY-IN-SAN-FRANCISCO TRADITIONS

FOOT! Fun Walking Tours is proud to present Luscious Lobbies: intimate interiors and only-in-San-Francisco traditions, our holiday walking tour of Nob Hill and Union Square. We'll explore the City’s grandest and most decorated lobbies, sparkling with lights and holiday cheer.  

San Francisco is a city built around hospitality; hotels, restaurants, and bars have been catering to visitors (and prospectors) since the Gold Rush days. But she shines especially bright around the holidays, and our special edition Luscious Lobbies tour takes you to extraordinary places you wouldn't discover on your own. And along the way, you'll hear about a dozen traditions that could only happen in the City by the Bay.

While the weather outside is frightful, San Francisco's most inviting interiors are decked out, cozy, and downright sumptuous. So stay out of the cold and get the low-down of some of the City's most recognizable landmarks. Bring your cameras and get ready to see San Francisco during the most wonderful time of the year!
