How do you get to really know a city? Have an SF native, show you the way in this nearly-private tour! This well-crafted, intimate, & flexible, tour is designed to provide the you with the greatest exposure to SF's culture, history, and recommended spots in the least amount of time. After nearly a decade of giving other people's tours, Paul, the owner/ guide, started SF Expeditions in order to give *his* tours of the City he grew up in. We know that there's more to a good tour than relaying dates and facts. A good tour allows us the chance to really connect with the flavor of the city and to explore opportunities as they arise. We're also happy to customize the route to suit requests, whenever possible ("Full House" location, anyone?). Some hotel pick-up/drop-offs can be pre-arranged.
