See the crowded and bustling open-air meat and produce markets of Stockton Street; visit side alleyways that will take you back in time; and discover lions, dragons, pagoda roofs, and dangling lantern along Grant Street.

Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Some uphill walking is involved. Tour departs from the Southeast corner of Union Square, at Geary and Powell Streets.

  • For guests unable to make the climb, a tram is available, although it would miss the docent tour.
  • You will go through the Cellhouse at your own pace. The award-winning audio headset tour is included. Available in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
