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

We took four tours (Monterey & Carmel, City Tour, Yosemite, and Muir Woods & Sausilito)...each one exceptional. Mike, Tom and Alan were wonderful, personable and knowledgeable tour guides. The small size tours were just perfect for us. It enabled our tour guides to be able to answer any questions we had during our tours. Our hotel pickups were always on... More

We were picked up from our San Francisco Hotel right on time by our tour guide Eric. Our transport was a new 14 seater bus which was very comfortable with tinted windows, reclining seats and good leg room,The trip out to Yosemite is a long one, so don't expect a short bus trip, but it was well worth the time...
