מה נעשה

Experience the legendary North Beach and Chinatown districts of San Francisco with local author and radio personality, Scott Lettieri.

We're the only comprehensive historic and cultural tour in the city that explores San Francisco's rich history through a literary lens.

Mark Twain. Maya, Angelou, Robert Frost, Jack Kerouac, John Steinbeck, Allen Ginsburg, Amy Tan: just a few of the writers who lived and worked in the neighborhoods that are still rich with artistic talent.

Scott has lived in the neighborhood for some 3 decades and his compelling insider storytelling has been praised by among others, The Guardian of London, The San Francisco Chronicle, and the San Francisco Weekly.

We start the tour off at the iconic City Lights Bookstore, the center of a 1st Amendment battle that ultimately changed the course of American history. We then head up Broadway Street where the Beat poets and legendary Jazz musicians played at clubs that lit up the San Francisco Avant-Garde and counterculture movements in the 1950s and 60s.

Up to Montgomery Street where Scott performs a spirited reading from the poem that changed everything.

Then back in time to the Gold Rush era and the four San Francisco writers (one was Mark Twain) who "reinvented American literature."

Into Chinatown to a bar named for a beloved poet then we wrap things up in Jack Kerouac Alley.

Happy touring!

We could not have had a better experience on our tour with Scott. He truly embodies what an outstanding tour guide is all about. We are so honoured to have met him and we are so beyond grateful for the whole experience. We can’t wait to cross paths with Scott again soon.

Scott is very knowledgeable and gave a great tour, definitely recommend if you’re interested in the literary history of San Francisco. You need to be comfortable walking around/standing for 2+ hours.

My friend and I (English teachers, each having about 30 years of experience) thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Scott provided us with enthralling stories, memorable details, and a lot of food for thought! We recommend this tour for anyone who wants to find out about San Francisco's impactful literary and arts scene and its important place in history and the present.

The tour was great. Scott has a very deep knowledge about literature, history, the city itself and a lot of topics that made the tour really interesting. He showed us a lot of interesting places and made it even better by reading some poems. He is well known around the area so you’ll probably run into some of his friends, also experts in several themes, that share some stories about authors or the city. I really really enjoyed it.
