We will meet at the Helen Wills Playground for a 1.5 hour walking tour of the old Basque Town of San Francisco. We'll talk about how the history of Basque immigration to San Francisco is closely tied with the history of the city itself. Together we will walk down Broadway and see where the Basque hotels used to be. You'll learn about who these immigrants from the Basque Country were, where they came from, and what they did when they got to San Francisco. We'll finish off the tour at the Basque Hotel where you have the option to try the famous Picon Punch, a cocktail invented by Basque immigrants in the American West. All of your questions about Basque immigration to the United States and current-day Basque life in America will be answered. This tour runs rain or shine.
I'm a Basque American blogger and YouTuber at Hella Basque, where I discuss Basque culture and history. Having grown up in the Basque American community of the San Francisco Bay Area, I'm a passionate advocate for local Basque events and preserving Basque culture in the diaspora. A professional tour guide by trade, I'm excited to share my knowledge of the Basques in San Francisco during this history walk through the old Basque Town.

We'll visit the Helen Wills Playground where the old Basque fronton used to stand and then take a leisurely walk down Broadway, which is currently part of Chinatown but in the mid-twentieth century was a thriving Basque enclave. The tour ends at the Basque Hotel, the site of an old Basque bar on the border of Chinatown and North Beach. The route is fairly short at 1 mile long, but it does include some hills. Welcome to San Francisco!

The old Basque Town of San Francisco is now a part of Chinatown, so we will be using our imaginations to envision how Basque this neighborhood used to be. I'll bring it to life for you with stories and pictures.
