I did this tour last Thursday with some business colleagues who are all from SF. Saw some great sights and quite a few places that the locals didn’t know. Our guide Chad has some great insights and kept things flowing nicely. Highly recommended.

We loved everything about our San Francisco Private Tour, the car, the city, the music, all the information, the view (that was behind the wildfire smoke) and our guide Chad, who was the nicest. A perfect tour! Thanks Vantigo:)
