Tours of the Tales

This tour gives Barbaryphiles a taste of Chinatown and a significant gulp of Nob Hill.  Locations from Tales of the City (Sam Wo, The University Club, and The Bohemian Club) are featured in this tour as well as several from More Tales of the City - such as Grace Cathedral.  Other locations in this tour were featured in Further Tales of the City, Babycakes, and even Jackie Old! 

Tour #6: Chinatown, Nob Hill, and the Edge of the Tenderloin

When walking this tour, take some time to look into some of the shops in Chinatown (and purchase fresh fortune cookies), to visit the Top of the Mark, and to sit near the altar Grace Cathedral and visualize body parts falling down from the catwalks.  You might encounter stiff resistance trying to enter the Bohemian Club (if you're not a member, you don't get in). 

Locations in Chinatown and Nob Hill were used in the filming of the "Tales of the City" and "More Tales of the City Miniseries".
