Traveller Tips

Highly recommended for getting your bearings at the start of your holiday.
Remember the VW bus is old and glamorous so if you not up for throwback then find a limo.

DuWayne_V, June 2023
Our tour guide had great depth of knowledge on every aspect of the city and tour Tara was very engaging We would do the tour again in a heartbeat
Great guide and Tour!
Camille_C, June 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with our guide Kai. He skillfully took us through the extra traffic in San Francisco on Memorial Day and gave us many anecdotes that punctuated the historical facts. We saw many parts of San Francisco including a stop at the Golden Gate Bridge. Kai was always pleasant and kind and even offered to take pictures if we wished. We learned a lot and were able to visit a few of the places that he mentioned during the next day. Thank you Kai and San Francisco Love Tours!
Best experience of our vacation!

Haight Ashbury & Golden Gate Bridge - great nostalgia. The tour covered many areas we wouldn't have gone on our own
Fun way to see the city

Great way to see the sights in a short amount of time. The tour guide even accommodated a request for an extra stop to see the Buffalo in Golden Gate Park. We learned a lot on the tour and enjoyed it very much!

Great tour of San Francisco and its many neighborhoods. Cyrus our guide had so much knowledge and was very entertaining. Highly recommend.
Edie_F, May 2023
Cyrus was the one who made this a memorable ride down memory lane. He is an amazing tour guide and everyone had the best time. I would definitely recommend this to everyone…both young and old will appreciate learning about the history of San Francisco.
Great tour!
Robert_Y, May 2023
Great tour! Very informative and lots of fun! Cyrus was full of information and personal stories that made the trip lots of fun. I highly recommend it. My only advice would be to consider an afternoon tour, when you’re more likely to have a full view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Loved the love tour
