Having been to San Francisco before, we wanted to see the slightly off-the-beaten-track side to the city, other than the touristy attractions. We were lucky enough to have Mr Danilo as our guide. What a great day was had - he showed us so many incredible things we never would have found in a million years. From the wonderful graffiti... More

We spent two days with Danilo. He was very personable and helpful, and took very good care of us. As we had been to San Francisco city before and been to the usual tourist attracxtions, we were looking to get out of the city. On day 1 we asked him to take us to the Jelly Belly Factory (great fun!)... More

We just returned from a great trip to San Francisco. We booked Silver Lion to take us to Sausalito and Muir woods! We originally booked 3-5 hours and ended up spending the whole day. Our guide was Dirk and he is so knowledgable and fun to talk to! We saw vistas of San Francisco that we would have never found... More

This year we were lucky enough to get a booking with this best of tour companies. Danilo was like a family friend sharing his home town- chatty and friendly, very knowledgeable and able to tailor a drive around what you'd like to see. We had taken a tour with another company last year, and today's experience was definitely far better.... More

We had a wonderful experience with Silver Lion Tours. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel, we felt very comfortable with our guide. He was friendly and knowledgeable. Driving in a busy city can be frustrating but our guide was patient and very safe. We saw everything we wanted to see: the Golden Gate Bridge & Park,... More

From the moment we met Dirk we knew we had made the right choice for our half day tour in SF. A tailored private tour to what we wanted to see and an excellent guide the day just got better and better. SF weather made for some spectacular photos, from treasure island to Sausalito we covered the entire city and... More

Our tour guide was Dirk. We were challenged to see everything we wanted to see due to limited time and Friday afternoon traffic. I also had very high expectations due to all of the positive trip reviews. I do regret not asking to get out of the car in certain areas. This is definitely my fault as Dirk was flexible... More

This was the highlight of our San Francisco/California trip. I am a little behind on writing this review but our day was so awesome I wanted to make sure that I did post it. It was myself, my husband and two teenagers. We had never taken a tour before so weren't sure how it would be but we had a... More

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.
