After morning or afternoon pickup at your hotel, travel in your own comfortable private SUV through San Francisco.

Your private guide takes you to the best spots to see the city's classic Victorian architecture, sweeping ocean views, and quirky neighborhoods that have their own distinct sensibility.

With a private guide, you can focus on the areas that most interest you. You might want to cruise around Nob Hill, Coit Tower, Pier 39, and Fisherman's Wharf, and sample some typical foods in Chinatown and North Beach. You can view historic maritime ships and a museum near Hyde St, then try the chocolates made at Ghirardelli Square. Wind down the twists and turns of Lombard Street, stop at the park near Fort Mason, and check out the Palace of Fine Arts, the Presidio, Crissy Field, Fort Point, and the Golden Gate Bridge.

You can also stroll along the sand at Baker Beach, then see the Sutro Bath ruins, the Cliff House, Ocean Beach, Sea Cliff, and Golden Gate Park. Nearby neighborhoods includes the Haight Ashbury, The Castro, Twin Peaks (weather permitting), and Alamo Square. Back in the downtown area, you can explore the upscale shopping at Union Square and the hubbub around Civic Center.

The SUV used was clean and comfortable, but our guide was not as friendly and engaging as we expected him to be. To be fair, though, he provided many information about San Francisco. We also did not consume the entire 4 hours because we rushed some of the sites.
