Christina was inspired to do this when she first started walking her roommate's dog for her two years ago. She recently had just closed down her business so she had some extra time and needed some exercise as well. She was looking on Craigslist one night in search for a part time job and found an ad looking for tour guides to show people their neighborhood from a "local's" perspective. " She has lived in the Excelsior District for five years and knows the area well. "I thought maybe people would want to join me and a friendly, lovable pit bull in seeing some of the best views in the city while hiking through a colorful and interesting neighborhood." The tour company loved the idea and put her on their website. Christina has been doing these hikes for almost one and a half years now and still enjoys them every time.
If you're interested in joining her on a hike you can book a tour by going to her website www.excelsiorurbanhikes.com and clicking on the calendar to see the tour times. It will be an experience you'll never forget!
