      Paul was a great host and tour guide. Very informative, and you can tell he is passionate about this special city. I highly recommend this tour, and am so happy we picked this personal experience over a big bus tour.

      Thanks so much, Golnar! I really appreciate your enthusiasm, and love how you had prepped the kids on some of the topics we covered - Hope the rest of your special birthday trip is fantastic, Paul
      Best Tour Ever!

      We have taken mini tours in San Francisco, but this was the best one by far! Paul showed us things we’ve never seen before. He was a wealth of information about the history of the city and he has such a passion for it. I highly recommend this to her, you can’t go wrong.!
      Response from Host, Jan 2023
      Thanks so much! Your enthusiasm for the City was contagious ;-) - I feel like it really raised the bar for the trip!

      Paul is a Fabulous Guide, Book Him
      Keith_M, Nov 2022
      Paul's stories and personable nature made this a very comprehensive and outrageously enjoyable tour of the neighborhoods and primary attractions/sights of San Francisco. He loves the city and is honest about its contradictions, changes every decade and little hidden gems across all the neighborhoods. We live in the North Bay and will book Paul again very soon the next time we have guests from out of town ... he knows so much and the time flew by ... if you want to book someone who is kind, courteous and infinitely knowledgeable, Paul is your guy.
      Highly recommend this tour

      Don't Hesitate to Book this Tour!

      Fantastic tour! This tour was a great overview of the city of San Francisco and I would recommend it anyone trying to get a better understanding, love, and knowledge of the city. The guide, Paul was the BEST!!! Very personable, funny, kind, and professional. He has an expertise of the city that is unmatched from other SF tours that I have taken. He truly has seen the city grow and change with the years. The tour took you all around SF and had two great stops at the Golden Gate Bridge and Lucas museum (a stop friends or family probably would overlook taking you to). It was so great to get the city's rich history throughout the driving. This tour was also special because depending on the group size, Paul is happy to customize the tour to what you want to see. We were even able to drive down the the famous Lombard Street! Paul took me to see the steepest hill in the SF and gave me an opportunity to stop and take pictures outside the Palace of Fine Arts. I cannot say better things about this tour. Dont hesitate to book. At the end of the tour, Paul gives you the option to drop you off anywhere in the city (within reason) and even suggests some great restaurants/eateries. Love, love, loved this tour! Thanks Paul!
      Great tour

      Eric_P, Sep 2022
      Very accommodating with tour, there was a sight we wanted to see so he made sure it was included!! Was only 3 of us so we felt it was more personal and memorable. Tons of knowledge and history shared, loved the personal stories that he tied in.
      Response from Host, Sep 2022
      Thanks Eric - it was great to be able to customize on the fly, as we did - I think I may have enjoyed it as much as you all!
      Great experience and very good value for money
      MARTIN_M, Jul 2022
      The small group, coupled with a passionate and highly experienced guide made the tour a great experience. John brings his growing up in San Francisco experiences into the commentary giving it a human feel.
      Response from Host, Jul 2022
      Thanks so much- It was lovely having you both, I really appreciated the feedback, both immediately after the tour, and here!
