This tour and the tour guide Judith was AMAZING! She was knowledgeable about the city and ensured the ride was well worth it. My husband and I enjoyed this as a last bang before heading home to Atlanta. I would highly recommend checking it out.

A Fun Way to Tour San Francisco

We loved the tour. Our driver and guide, Alfred, was great. He made it a lot of fun. The bus is hand painted and very cool. We saw a lot of tourist taking pictures of the bus as it drove by. The next time I visit San Fran I plan to do this again, but I’ll be wearing a tie dye shirt, those small round hippy “John Lennon” glasses, while flashing a peace sign at people we pass. I recommend this tour. It’s a fun way to tour the city.

So fun! Our tour guide, Allan, was very informative, interesting and amusing! We had a blast traveling through the city in his wild love van listening to an awesome carefully planned song list which corresponds perfectly with each area we traveled through!

The Love Tour was a blast and our tour guide Judith was a wealth of pop culture knowledge! We felt like rock stars with tons of people taking pictures of our groovy bus. She gave us a great recommendation in Haight Asbury for a tie dye shop that represents over 150 tie dye artists. Of course we went back and picked up some unique souvenirs! We highly recommend this fabulous tour!

Such a fun tour just being in the old school hippie vw bus is an experience in itself. People on the street love it! We did a lot of waves creating smiles all around town! I’m a local but took my 80 year old mom and she loved every minute of it from the ride to all the places we got to see. And the music was great !
