Eric is amazing, funny, polite and professional guide, very dedicated to his work and he made our day in SF. He went an extra mile to adjust a tour for us and we deeply appreciate it. We saw in one day way more than we expected and I highly recommend him as a guide - SF is lucky to have him :)) Hopefully we’ll meet again!

Our guide Randy was great. We were picked up on time at the agreed meeting point. Since there were only two of us, we had an interesting exchange. I can recommend the tour to everyone.

Fun way to see the city. Brian was a great guide with lots of special insights and stories. Our teenagers also enjoyed it! Highly recommend.

This tour is fantastic. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. My 13yr old and I both said it was our favorite part of the trip.

fantastic value for money...overall saved 60% on turn up prices
