This tour was really great and our town guide went above and beyond…and the music was perfect as we made our way around and past all the best sites in the city. Highly recommend, way better than the double decker tours- more private and we even enjoyed the couple that shared our tour.

Alfred is a San Francisco native, with such a rich knowledge of the history here. He took us to a variety of interesting spots and shared many different things he thought our kids would enjoy as well. He was not only knowledgeable about the history and attractions but also knew a lot about the animals and flora here. We felt extremely safe on the roads and it was endearing how he knew and waved at all walks of life from those living and working on the streets to children and runners we passed. Such a great music mix and positive attitude!

Best tour and tour guide ever! Thanks Alfred!

Best tour ever! Alfred was our tour guide...he was a wealth of information, cracked jokes, and made the entire tour a ton of fun! The highlight of the tour for my daughter was when we made an unexpected stop at the bison enclosure in Golden Gate Park for a photo opp because Alfred found out that bison were my daughter's favorite animal! And my other daughter who suffers from severe anxiety thought this tour was awesome! Wish I could give this 10 stars!

Great experience to see the most of SF’s highlights in 2 hours. Recommend the early tour (we did 8:30am) to avoid traffic & crowds. Tara was a great driver/host & very knowledgeable about the city’s history, she also took great photos! Also, be ready to have people take photos OF YOU, as this VW bus gets a lot of attention too! Super fun experience for families & would recommend!
