Took the tour to Muir Woods and had an amazing tour guide (Adolfo) who made the trip very enjoyable and was good at giving us information about the city and places we were seeing. The drive up to Muir Woods was a beautiful scenic drive and Adolfo assured me that we were safe, since I was a little scared with... More

It was my first trip to San Francisco and it was beautiful. Hope to come back again and take a tour to Carmel/Monterey. Price for the tour was... More

We did the City bus Tour today. San Fransisco was beautiful and very interesting. But it was our very knowledgeable driver and tour guide that made the tour so special. We felt he was very courteous to all . We really enjoyed his sense of humour as well. It was a great day.

I pretty much expected an awesome tour as that was company was recommended to me by my colleagues. Adolfo, our guide, nailed it and was the perfect mix of history and comedy.

The Alcatraz part of our tour was fine as it was self guided. The city tour however was less than impressive. Our tour guide Adolfo was very knowledgeable but I think when you start talking about suicides from the Golden Gate Bridge and then take us down the homeless area "tenderloin" it puts a negative spin on the tour. He... More

We had the best time. Seeing the scenery, trying the various wines and the commentary from Patrick our tour guide topped it. Definitely would do it again.
