    Free walking tours!

    Discover SF's amazing jazz, opera, ballet, and symphony history.

    San Francisco City Guides, since 1978.

    On this walking tour you will discover another San Francisco, a city that went bonkers for opera (sung in saloons!) in the 1800s, founded a symphony that was the first to offer radio broadcasts of its entire season to the nation nearly 100 years ago, nurtured a ballet company (and school) that choreographers love for the dancers’ classical and contemporary skills, and most recently didn’t listen to reports of jazz being dead and instead built a world recognized jazz center. Learn about the people who made this happen and the present-day collaborations growing the next generation of musicians, dancers, and actors.
