The 6 hours tour with Brandon was a perfect opportunity to discover San Francisco and its surrounding with limited time. Brandon was knowledgeable, funny and accommodating. I highly recommend!
I also recommend Venise restaurant in Sausalito, the food was great and the staff were friendly.

Alex was a great tour guide with a wealth of knowledge on the area! Even with the weather not cooperating he made some adjustments.
Even in the rain...

My two nieces, both in their twenties wanted to see San Francisco for the first time. It was pouring down rain, but Brendan still made it a fun and interesting day. He includes lots of the city's unusual history. They loved it and so did I.

My wife is a business owner of a travel agency and was a little sad because we were not able to make a reservation to the Yosemite National Park. Then she started to look on internet about something to do in San Francisco and she found this tour and it was excellent. We saw the main attractions to see in SF and we found this trip enjoyable. Thank you to Alex that took us to the best places.

Great for traveling solo if you want to see the city in a reasonable amount of time and not worry about parking or directions
The guide, Brendan , was incredible.

Great way to see all of San Fran in half a day. Tour is a bad long BUT 100% worth it! We purchased based off the reviews and I am adding to the 5 star reviews. Muir woods was awesome!

Brendan is true San Franciscan who takes his tour to heart. Very pro and very cool at the same time. This tour is really worth it in time and money.
Beautiful San Francisco

Brendan (sp?) was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and interactive with everyone on the tour. The tour itself was beautiful of course, it’s San Francisco.

Jennifer_M, Nov 2022
Overall experience was great. Brandon reminded us of the time but was flexible enough when we were 2 minutes late.
Small group tour is the way to go.
A must do tour!

One of the best tours ever!
MARIA_P, Oct 2022
Got to see so much in one trip! Didn’t have to worry about planning things out, driving, and finding parking. Brendan is from SF and new all the history, all the places to stop, and incredible views. Plus great personality to boot! One of the best tours ever. Highly recommend!
Informative and fun!
shanaz_k, Oct 2022
The whole tour was amazing, so much was fit into it. The best thing to do if like myself you aren’t in SF for long, or even if you want to pack a lot into your trip. Very informative and fun!
San Fran, Sausalito and Muir Wood in one day. If flew by!

Alex, Alex, Alex! We can’t say enough about Alex. Being born and raised in San Fran, he was full of stories and great advice about the rest of our stay in San Fran. This is the perfect tour to do on your first day. It started with a great tour of the city and included recommendations for shopping, restaurants and cocktails to suit every taste. Then we had a lunch stop for a great lunch on the water in Sausalito. Thanks to Alex’s recommendation. Ended the day at Muir Woods which was our first experience seeing Redwoods. Awesome! Great tour and ask for Alex. He’ll make sure you are comfortable and is a great story teller.
