We had a great time touring San Francisco with Dirk. Scheduling the tour was easy. Dirk was punctual, personal, funny, helpful and efficient. He showed us some great spots, took some amazing pictures and we feel like we got an insider's look at San Francisco. I would highly recommend Dirk, Holger and Silver Lion. We will tour the wine country... More

I didn't know what to expect from this tour as it was booked by another in our group of 5. It was beyond expectation. We saw all the sights in the comfort of an new SUV. Dirk our tour guide was excellent, friendly and obliging. Water and little snacks provided as well as a surprise for me, champagne at the... More

My daughter and I had an excellent afternoon touring the city with Tatjana, she picked us up at our hotel and gave us a great tour of all the great sights. We got to go at our pace and see what we wanted based on her helpful recommendations. the cost of the tour was not much more than the large... More

We had a one day stopover and wanted to see as much of the city as possible, as a fanatic researcher I took some time finding a tour company I thought would give us the best experience and we were not disappointed. Dirk picked us up from our airport hotel and set about giving us the best experience possible, he... More

This was our first time in San Francisco and we had very limited time. I wanted to see a lot of the tourist spots as well as get across the bridge for some pics. I looked around several tour companies but after hearing that a lot of them don't stop at the main sites anymore i finally decided to spend... More

5 of us were given a wonderful tour of San Francisco by Dirk. He was knowledgable, flexible and friendly and we all enjoyed our day so much that we extended the tour. The price would have been the same per person for one of the tours on the big buses and we wouldn't have seen or experienced half as much.... More

Booking was easy although I did make multiple tries (emails and calls) to schedule our tour, Danilo picked us upright on schedule and we told him all the places we wanted to see above and beyond the ones he took us to, and overall had a great tour of the city. For anyone considering a tour: DO IT! It allows... More

Just got back from a city tour. Dirk was our tour guide, and he was fantastic. I had been here several times but not for about 8 or 9 years and taken tours before, but this one was definitely the best. Saw everything we asked for and much much more. Dirk even knows the good restaurants in the city. He... More

Make sure you request Holger/Roger. He kept the party entertained and was extremely knowledgeable. He made sure that we hit all the main sites you expected to see in San Francisco and took us to many more than we thought we'd get to see. The tour just got better as it went on, all the way to the breathtaking ending... More

We were visiting San Francisco on a family vacation in August. We originally booked Silver Lion to take us to Muir Woods. But, there was a huge traffic jam on the Golden Gate Bridge and nothing was moving. So, instead of sitting in a traffic jam that was going nowhere, Dirk recommended we revise the trip to tour the city... More
