Best Guide We Have Ever Had

Our excellent guide Brian has a lot of experience leading National Geographic tours around the country and world so made everyone aspect of the tour great! He is from San Francisco and obviously loves and knows the city well . Each stop and were well planned and he offered local snacks. He shared his personal and customer experience and gave tips on what to see and popular dining spots. He showed us relevant historical and more current photos on his laptop to provide additional detailed information. Going in a van with just our group of five was perfect!

I loved his vast knowledge of the city. Everything from the best pizza place to inside parks that tourists don’t know about.I have been to the city numerous times over the years and I would recommend this tour for everybody.

Very enjoyable tour of much of San Francisco's highlights. Having not been here before this was a great way to see and get around S.F. Including a map of some type so we could have a better understood how each area we visited was in relationship to others would have been beneficial.

Brian was a terrific guide with an incredible amount of knowledge about San Francisco! Went places no tours go and took his time. He let us walk around and take pix as long as we wanted and he never rushed us. He was a very smooth and conscious driver. A+++

Best half day tour of San Francisco providing much wonderful information with a Personal touch

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.

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!

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....
