Show the local mural artists your support and start here before going on a self-directed tour of the Murals. They also offer guides so stop by and find out when those are if you would rather see the murals that way. They have some of the murals as posters and cards, and you can also just leave a small donation to support their work in the community. The women running the little shop/gallery/studio were very pleasant and introduced us to a young muralist whose work we were then able to go see. This is a little treasure not to be missed in the Mission!

My two teenage daughters and I really enjoyed this tour. Carla was a great guide. The whole experience was very interesting - giving good insights into the culture and history of the Mission. Yet it was laid back and informal. We even got a great eating tip for lunch. It's also fantastic value.

Tourist attractions are fun and mostly interesting. But once in a while get into the flavor of the people of the area. Precita Eyes gives you that opportunity. It's down in the InnerMission of San Francisco. The art and culture of the Mission is there. The art center, that's what PE is, has books, art supples, original cards and postcards of the many murals throughout SF. They have maps of the murals and even better, take the tours! I have several times. When I have guest come to the city, we head over there and all have a real cool San Francisco unique experience. Oh, check out Cindy DeLisa's original one of a kind Homie shadow boxes. Then go for some real authentic Mexican food.

The Mission district has a surprisingly rich history that is narrated by the beautiful murals covering the busiest corners to the hidden alleys and walkways. The tour guides from Precita Eyes are super knowledgable about art and history, and the hidden gems of the Mission.

When I went on this tour I saw a completely different side of San Francisco. It made me appreciate the city even more than ever.

On visits to San Francisco, I try to show my friends and family around the Mission but it is not quite the same without the stories from the Precita Eyes tour guides.

The murals in the Mission District are well worth the visit. Precita Eyes offers a wonderful walking tour and history of the murals. We were lucky to have one of the muralists, Patrcia Rose, as our guide. The history she provided as well as the murals themselves made for one of the best tours i have been on in San Francisco.
