This tour covers all of the sites we wanted to see in a super fun way. Tyler is very knowledgeable and provided so much information and history about the city - perfect for our first visit. The VW bus is super fun and comfortable - loved having windows on all sides so we could see everything - did not want to be trapped on a big bus or cold trolley for half a day. LOVED the Love Tour!

Terra was great. She played 60s music and she was singing right along. I was too, but I don't know if she heard me. We went so many places and she had interesting insights. Two hours w by so quick! I highly recommend it on your first day in the city and it will give you ideas of places to come back to and explore!

From the start of our tour, we knew this would be something special! The colorful 70’s VW microbus, the music playing the greats of the era and our delightful host made for a most enjoyable afternoon. Our guide gave us great information about the history of each area, sprinkled with humorous stories about those who made SF the city it is today. All while navigating through steep inclines and narrow passages at times. Love!

Just perfect!
