Best half day tour of San Francisco providing much wonderful information with a Personal touch
, Sep 2021
Even though two other couples had missed their flight and had to cancel this small group tour on Sept 15, 2023 our guide took my husband and I on one of the best tours we have experienced with Viator. He was very knowledgeable and had a very comfortable private SUV. We did not feel rushed and had the pleasure of seeing most of the major sites the City of San Francisco has to offer. Would highly recommend this to get more factual and historical information on this beautiful city. Good way to help plan the rest of your stay in the city.
Great way to see the city!

Recommend you do this tour first during your trip. It gives a complete view of what San Francisco is all about and you can then plan off of the information provided. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided great historical information along the way. He even had photos/information on his tablet to share during the tour. Excellent tour!
Best San Francisco tour!

Brian’s narration, he was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. He also provided tasty snacks from local vendors.
San Francisco gave us just a pit of love. We hope a little more...

We arribed to several places but we just stopped there in a few of them. The guide never say a word in spanish (even "Hola"), previously i told him that our englisht wasn't good. All tour he was talking with the other 3 member of tour . He wasn't very polite with us. Just helped with a picture during all the tour. The apperitives were "Nachos" and a few of almonds, nothing else... The payment was high for that experience of puntual 4 hours. The weather was awful that day....
Excellent Tour

This tour was excellent! Brian is a very knowledgeable tour guide and we enjoyed it very much! Super comfortable vehicle, and we felt relaxed and not rushed during our stops to explore. I highly recommend this tour.
A Memorable and Fun Ride

Bryan was a knowledgeable and experienced guide and we enjoyed the trip. We loved our stops at Coit Tower, the Painted Ladies and the Golden Gate. Thanks so much for a memorable last day in San Francisco!
Awesome Experience

What an awesome experience. There was 1 other couple on the bus with us, so the small group was great. Brian had a lot of knowledge of the area and we learned and saw a lot! Highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants to know the ins and outs of San Francisco and do so in a comfortable van and small group. No worries about not being able to see out of the van either - the windows in the back were a great size!

Amazing. Brian is amazing. 10/10. Forget that impersonal big bus. Way better way to tour the city and actually get brought to the front door of spots. Absolutely loved
