The Castro : visite historique à pied dans le quartier de la communauté gay et lesbienne de San Francisco
Harvey Milk, icône et défenseur des droits civiques de San Francisco, contribua profondément à l'histoire du Castro. Au cours de cette excursion, vous aurez la possibilité de visiter la résidence de Harvey Milk, son magasin de photo et le siège de sa campagne.
D'autres monuments de Castro que vous découvrirez lors de cette visite à pied des quartiers historiques incluent la Pink Triangle Memorial Park (un mémorial triangulaire à la mémoire des milliers d'homosexuels persécutés dans les camps nazis de la Seconde Guerre mondiale), et la légendaire Twin Peaks Tavern (premier bar gay d'Amérique qui soit doté de baies vitrées).
Toutes les visites sont extrêmement instructives et impressionnantes. Les passages publics sont accessibles aux fauteuils roulants.

We really enjoyed the Castro tour! Our guide Kathy was very fun, nice and passionate and she provided us a lot of information about the district history and nowadays challenges and struggles of the LGBTQ community. Thank you Kathy!
Kathy was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information about the history of the Castro as well as gay rights in general.
I highly recommend this tour with thoughtful comments on culture and history. Kathy was a delight and very attentive to all members of the tour.
This tour was very informative and blended interesting trivia with big moments in San Francisco history during the Harvey Milk era and the AIDS epidemic. Our guide touched on important topics with grace. The attendees were diverse, both in geography and age. It included two elementary-school aged kids. There was about 5 minutes where their mother took them away from the group as adult topics were being discussed, but it was a short time and the family seemed to enjoy the entire tour. The tour starts and ends right in the heart of the Castro, which made it very easy for us to find something to do after the tour concluded. My friend and I both really enjoyed this tour!
I as the only person on this tour so it was very special to be able to have such a personal tour. I had this trip cancelled the time before I was in San Francisco so it was doubly a pleasure this time. Definitely learnt so much about the history. A must for me to do the next time I am there
Kathy was warm and welcoming mixing a deep understanding of the history of the area and the people with a fun, up to date and very local view. For anyone who is at all interested in civil rights, this trip is for you.
Truly wonderful tour! So much information, and such warm and friendly delivery.
This tour was amazing!
This was an insightful tour, led by a woman who was clearly passionate and knowledgeable about the area she lived in. Best thing we did in San Francisco.
