We're Leong and Wes with Wild SF Tours!

As a fourth generation San Franciscan, Leong is proud of where her roots grow, and won’t ever miss an opportunity to talk about the City. In her free time, she is an avid traveler, stargazer, and collector of bones and rarities. On a sunny day, you can find her in the park, with her face buried in a book about history, mythology or the counterculture. Ask her about her time in Claude Monet’s garden!

Wes Leslie is a songwriter, tropical bartender, and almost-local, with a long family history in the Bay. He writes “bedroom soul” music under his name Wes Leslie which you can find on Spotify. He has spent time backpacking through much of the world, including a year living in Madrid, Spain, and has been active in the Mission District for 12 years.

Très bon tour afin d'apprendre à distinguer toutes les formes de street art. Vous en apprendrez également plus sur San Francisco dans son contexte actuel.

This was a very interesting and educational tour. There is a story behind every piece of street art / mural in this district, and I wouldn't know how to get this information without going on this tour. It's so interesting to see and hear about the issues that people really care about that are being depicted on the walls - like gun violence, effects of gentrification, rising housing prices. There are also a few older murals in this area which were cool to see, as they depict the people and culture of the communities that have lived in this area for a while, and it's nice to see that these pieces are still around and respected. This tour also gives you some information about more general concepts like the different types of graffiti, and the history behind the origins of graffiti in Philadelphia - it's an interesting story.

Really loved the tour with Leong. Her insights into murals vs graffiti, the history of both art forms, the connection to the mission and the people who live there, the social background were amazing and very genuine. Will look for more tours from Wild SF tours!

SUCH A GREAT TOUR! My girlfriend and I have been taking street art tours for a few years now, it is something we like to do when we travel because we feel we get to see another side of the city/location and some amazing art. Our tour guide Leong was so knowledgeable about the area and the struggles happening within the community that this tour felt WAY more informative than most. She was clear in the beginning that should would be explaining the tour through her lens which I really appreciated. She didn't hold back and was truly herself. The artwork was very impressive and I'm glad we did it.

Some of the artworks are impressive, some are blighted by tags and some are a bit faded.... or blocked by cars 🙈. You could probably find your way around the Mission District and see them but that won’t tell you much about their history / background. Our Guide was passionate, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
