Previously named one of the world’s greatest tour guides by Travel + Leisure, Rick Evans leads two signature walking tours: an architectural tour and a Chinatown tour. The two-hour architectural excursion provides insight into a wide variety of Financial District landmarks, from well-known structures like the Hallidie—the first building with a glass curtain wall—to off-the-radar spaces called POPOS (privately owned public open spaces), such as unadvertised rooftop gardens and secluded courtyards. The three-hour Chinatown tour includes a detailed history of the neighborhood, as well as visits to a fortune cookie factory and the nation's oldest Chinese temple.
After your tour, head to the Citigroup Center’s “POPOS” (one of the more visible examples, located on the main level) and enjoy a picnic beside the fountain and palm trees.
