Your tour begins at Fisherman's Wharf, where you meet your guide and board your tour bus. Travel through San Francisco's different neighborhoods, admiring its geography, parks, and views of San Francisco Bay as you listen to stories about the city and make stops to take photos.

Drive through North Beach, also known as Little Italy, where sidewalk cafes line busy streets; see the markets and souvenir shops of Chinatown; check out where the Summer of Love began in the Haight-Ashbury; pass by the 'Painted Ladies,' known for their appearance in the 'Full House' intro; visit Twin Peaks for a panoramic view of the whole city; and get a glimpse of Pacific Heights, one of the city's most affluent neighborhoods where large homes have excellent views of San Francisco Bay (the house from 'Mrs. Doubtfire' is also here).

Then head north across the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods National Monument, where you have time to stroll through the grove of ancient redwood trees. Back on the tour bus, continue to Sausalito, a picturesque enclave on the bay where you can purchase lunch (own expense).

Your tour ends with return to your starting point at Fisherman's Wharf.

Really a great service. Prompt , professional. Aaron our guide. He was great and very informative about SFran. We were new to the city and thus didn’t have much knowledge about local area. The trip in the afternoon to Salsilito was great and Muir Woods fabulous For someone like us who hasn’t visited the area, this is a great way to spend the day 5 stars all the way!

Shawn Sullivan did a great job! Very knowledgeable. He took us everywhere and knew so much about each location. We had plenty of time at each place. I would recommend doing this tour on the first day in case you would like to explore a particular area more thoroughly later on in your trip.
