Nob Hill Walking Tour 

This program is sold out.

Explore one of San Francisco’s 44 hills, and one of its original “Seven Hills”.  Because of great views and its central position, Nob Hill became an exclusive enclave of the rich and famous on the west coast who built large mansions in the neighborhood.  This included prominent tycoons such as Leland Stanford, and other members of the Big Four.   Highlights include the history of four landmark hotels: The Fairmont, Mark Hopkins, Stanford Court, and Huntington Hotel.  Visit the city’s largest house of worship, Grace Cathedral, and discover architectural tidbits and anecdotes about the railroad barons and silver kings.  A true San Francisco experience of elegance, urbanity, scandals, and fabulous views.

Location: Meet in front of the Stanford Court Hotel, 905 California St. between Powell & Mason
