Your Local Insider
My name is Jacob Boris. You could say I've always been a "people person" and outdoorsy, and taking people on tour is a perfect way to merge the two! I'm originally from Indiana, but have worked in Hollywood, studied in New Zealand, and lived in Alaska before coming to San Francisco! The winding path that led me to be an Expedition Leader with Extranomical Tours might have started when I was around 11 years old - when I saw Yosemite for the first time. The mountains weren't like anything had ever seen before (we don't have those in Indiana), it took my breath away and I knew my experiences there weren't over. When presented with an opportunity to share this kind of experience with others, I jumped at the chance. In addition to that I love sharing the sites to see, the culture, and the hidden gems of San Francisco and the surrounding area. When not on tour, I enjoy exploring some of the many city parks and museums in San Francisco, constantly trying new restaurants, and playing intramural sports. There's so much to see and learn when touring people from around the world, and one of my favorite parts about the job is that learning goes both ways!
