We had a perfect tour (Dylan's famous tour) in San Francisco. We learned a lot about the city and the different districts. We at every glad we did this tour instead of a typical touristy big bus tour. It was much more personal, funny and the small group was a plus. We were lucky with the weather that day and... More

Picked up short walk from my hotel. Excellent communication via email prior to arriving in San Francisco . Friendly and accommodating Dylan treated us as a personal guest of his. Only 10 others on tour and we had a great time seeing around city, Sausilito and muir woods. I learnt lots and it was very very reasonably priced.

This tour felt very special to me because it didn't feel like a usual city tour where you are in a crowd of other tourists listening to some standard information. It felt more like if a friend was driving me around in his car, telling the city's stories - about its history, attractions, problems... We made a stop at a... More

We are a family from the Uk and found details of Dylan's Tours online. Booking online is very easy. We booked the tour on our first day of a 3-week family trip to the West Coast and Dylan's shop was easy to find & walk to from our holiday rental (thank you Google Maps!) Brendan was a fantastic host and... More

My wife and I took the Dylan’s Famous Tour lead by Dylan's brother Brendan our tour guide. Brendan did a great job explaining the unique characteristics of the San Francisco districts that we visited as well as pointing out various famous landmarks. He made plenty of stop throughout the city for photo opportunities and to point out and describe in... More

This is an awesome tour for getting a great overview of the city and the surrounding areas. Dylan knows his city and gave us great information. He made it fun and gave us plenty of stops and picture moments. Worth the money for the small group tour. We learned much more than a big bus tour.

We had time for one tour, and selected this from the advice of other Trip Advisor posts. So glad we did! I can't add much more than what other reviewers have said. This tour is comfortable, informative, filled with fun facts, and covers all the high points of the area without rushing. We had a bad experience with a hop... More

Dylan was a fabulous tour guide, small group, interesting info about living in San Fran's different communities-- did t just rattle off facts but gave us the flavors of the districts. Plenty of stop offs to grab shots. Dylan was very easy going and professional--- and I highly recommend using his tour-- we were thrilled.

My wife and I ( early 50 somethings) took this tour with Brendan as our guide. Went to all the main areas of SF and the Muir Woods and found him engaging and informative. Had a lot of neat stories and historical info. I really like that when we went by Sausalito and he was talking about the houseboats that... More
