I've just returned from my San Francisco vacation, where I spent 5 days with my mom & sister. One of highlights of our trip was the day we spent with Alan on the Sonoma Valley & Muir Woods tour. Alan was prompt to pick us up at the hotel, and the van was the perfect size. This day ended up... More

My wife and I had a wonderful vacation and we really enjoyed our tours with Best Bay Area Tours. Alan and Eric were both very friendly and knowledgeable. We met some very nice people on the tours as well. We highly recommend their tours of the city as well as their tours of the Muir Woods and the Sonoma Wine... More

We had a great experience with Alan on our Muir Woods and Sonoma Tour. He was on time and very knowledgable about the area. We got great insight on all facets of the city and it's surrounding areas. It was a lot of fun visiting both Sonoma and Muir Woods. We never felt rushed and got to spend plenty of... More

We just returned from a family vacation in San Francisco with 8 of us. I had looked into other tours before going and picked "Best Bay Area Tours" originally because of the tour options and frankly the reviews. I can honestly say it was a fantastic decision. After speaking directly to Alan before arriving over the phone and having him... More

We went on a 4 hour tour of San Francisco, our guide was Greg. He knew the city well and had lots of good advice re restaurants and places to come back and visit. This is a good way to become familiar with the city and to pick those areas worth returning to. Also liked the small van which could... More

We had a awesome family vacation in San Francisco. Of all the super fun filled days we had, going on the tour bus with Alan was our favorite. Alan really knows the history of the city, the forest, the wineries and more. He also was really helpful and patient with us, as sometimes our one year old daughter would start... More

We took two tours with Best Bay Area Tours and could not fault their service. We liked how their tours were all in mini buses, smaller groups, more personal service and they did not disappoint us. Yosemite Full day tour: a rather long day but definitely worth the trip, wonderful Yosemite National Park. We were picked up from our San... More

Dear Pam, I am truly sorry you were disappointed in my having to cancel your tour. My 87 year old mom was taken ill and I needed to fly to Florida to be with her. I did arrange for another tour for you with a partner company. Which is more than most other companies would take the time do to.... More

Alan was charming and very personable. We did a group tour to Sausalito and Muir Woods. He didn't go overboard with silly gimmicks or canned jokes. He just shared his extensive knowledge about SF, history and the sights we were seeing in a way that made all of my group rate him 5 stars. Plus, I left my camera on... More
