5 Third Street
San Francisco, California 94103

You will visit the top privately-owned public open spaces in San Francisco, with rooftop views of the Palace Hotel, Hobart Building, Hearst Building, and more. A knowledgeable guide will tell you about the legends and lore surrounding San Francisco’s “Times Square,” once home to three of the city’s major newspapers. Along the way we’ll test your knowledge of architecture and San Francisco History. We’ll end the tour with a visit to the basement of the Hearst Building, where you’ll see the original printing shop of the San Francisco Examiner, the William Randolph Hearst owned daily newspaper that once operated in the Hearst Building.
