A Do Not Miss tour!!
, Sep 2021
Our tour guide Judith made this already amazing tour even better - she was super knowledgeable and her driving skills were amazing - this is a do not miss tour - you may think it’s hokey but it’s not at all - fabulous way to start your trip - she will give you lots of insight and tips about what to do on your stay - I highly recommend this tour!
Fun and informative

Tour guide was very informative and friendly. The VW van was a cool way to get around the town. We were able to travel small back roads and busy main roads with ease. The music driver played really set the mood.
Cool riders

Loved the whole tour. Best way to tour San Francisco!! Our guide was the coolest hippist guide we’ve ever had, and music was jammin!! We’d do it again!!
A fast paced, barely narrated, drive through San Francisco.
, Sep 2021
The guide drove us around, showing San Francisco highlights. There was little or no narration and more detailed stories, often deferred to the "next stop" were omitted. The historical references to the places we passed were abbreviated. There was more mentioning of monetary value of the properties we passed than any other aspects of that particular neighborhood. Overall, a fast paced, highly overpriced drive through the city that could be guided by a taxi driver. Disappointing at best. Not recommended.

The entire tour was wonderful. I highly recommend this tour. Fun from beginning to end. Allan was our driver and he was a vat of knowledge. He even found us a naked guy strolling the streets.

Alfred, the driver/guide, did a first-rate job. It was delightful to see people on the street spy the van, stop, smile, wave and shoot a picture. Nice to bring a smile to people while enjoying one's self.
