Covers both history of The Beat Generation members and events as well as the rich and long history of San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood. Very knowledgeable and fun tour guide. Highly Recommended!

Ryan did a great tour. He brought us North Beach and the Beat very close. Thanks, we really enjoyed it.

Ok, so if I could give this tour more stars I would. If you want to know more about the Beat Gen and San Fran - please do this tour. They charge you so little and they actually provide you so much more than they describe on Viator. Ryan, our tour guide, is a fount of knowledge when it comes to Beat writing, the Beat Generation hot spots and their writing.
Ryan takes you to their old haunts and gives you insights into their lives, influences, loves, vices and writing. He knows the ins and outs of the area (he also does the foodie / restaurant tours and gave us some great restaurant suggestions). Also, the guy is hilarious. The museum itself is amazing and inside is the original car from On the Road - filth and all. The owner is welcoming and attentive. They have some amazing Beat artifacts, books and media available (it has its own little makeshift cinema). I purchased some amazing things from the museum, like a poster that I absolutely fell in love with. Brandon, who also works in the Museum, was kind enough to wrap it up nicely and it survived the entire trip (about 8 + flights) in my bag - thank you dude! I will be framing it and hanging it up in my new apartment in Sydney, Aus.
Ryan also suggested that we go to two restuarants one in a Lighthouse (below sea level) and another on Mission St called La Taqueria. Both were EXCELLENT.
My friends and I loved this tour. I know I will be back soon and will be visiting there again.
