Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour begins at Fisherman's Wharf, where you meet your local guide and board your minibus. Over the course of the day, you get a look at the city's diverse neighborhoods and geography, stopping at several locations to take beautiful photos and learn about the history of the city and current events through the eyes of a local.

You will travel through North Beach, also known as Little Italy, where sidewalk cafes line busy streets. You will get to see the markets and souvenir shops of Chinatown; visit the art and landmarks where the Summer of Love began in the Haight-Ashbury; see the 'Painted Ladies' victorians, known for their appearance in the 'Full House' intro; 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), among others.

The adventure then continues across the Golden Gate Bridge to the picturesque enclave of Sausalito for a lunch break, before heading to Muir Woods National Monument, where you have an hour to stroll through the majestic forest of ancient redwood trees.

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

We were taken to places in San Francisco that we would never have gone to or even known of if it hadn’t been for our excellent tour guide. He had a wealth of information that he shared and has impressive driving skills. We would have enjoyed a little more time to spend at Muir Woods.

We had originally booked a different tour with this company, unfortunately because of closures at some stops including Alcatraz due to Covid that tour was cancelled. Dylan’s tours reached out to my be phone and email offered me many options for rescheduling. I picked a different tour and it turned out perfect. Our tour guide Pat was so knowledgeable about the city and offered such great suggestions for things to see the next day. He even texted us a restaurant choice that was incredible. Don’t hesitate to book this tour. This company does it right.

A wonderful way to see San Francisco in a short time. Now we know where to explore longer the next time. Enjoyed the trip to Muir woods even on a rainy day. Got to drive across the Golden Gate Bridge.. Nice to see outside of the city. Aaron was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of facts and interesting tidbits about the neighborhoods. Small group for social distancing.
