Event description

Description

90-minute tour showcasing the positive and rich history of the Tenderloin with 30-year Tenderloin resident Del Seymour and other resident tour guides. Your guides will inspire you to not avoid the Tenderloin.

The tour will start and end at Glide Memorial United Methodist Church, unless you are advised otherwise.

Age Requirements: Volunteers must be at least 12 years old.

DEL SEYMOUR has spent many years on the very streets where he now conducts the tours. An Army Veteran, Del went back to his home in Chicago in 1969 and immediately left for California. In his time in San Francisco, he has seen the area from all angles: as an addict living on the streets, as a taxi driver, as a husband (for only fifteen minutes--his self-described "Hollywood marriage"), as a volunteer at one of the many service organizations. His idea for Tenderloin Walking Tours stems from his love of the neighborhood. He works in conjunction with many of the social agencies in the Tenderloin (he serves on the Board of The Gubbio Project among others) and also the companies that have moved into the Market Street corridor and has received the respect of everyone he involves. His knowledge and communication skills make him an ideal ‘docent’ for the area.
