We booked a four hour tour while visiting San Francisco. Holger was our guide. He took us to all the major attractions we asked to go to as well as giving us lots of fun facts along the way. We have two teenage girls 18 & 20 and they enjoyed it as well. He provided us with wonderful snacks and... More

My family and I took this tour of the San Francisco highlights on our recent trip to S.F. (our first time there). Dirk was very prompt and friendly. I booked this private tour at the last minute (the day before the tour) and the only car available was a rental car (not a van). That made no difference to us... More

This is the best way to see San Francisco. We have actually used Silver Lion on two different trips to SF and both times were great! Holger was our guide on both trips...he really takes the time to learn the group and then tailors that trip to the sites you want to see but also then shows you some unexpected... More

By far the best way to have an overview of the city when visiting for the first time! We travel a lot, and seeing the sights on our own cannot be compared to having a guide showing us what matters.

We were picked up at the cruise terminal right on time. We had corresponded before the trip and the driver had planned what to show us. Danilo was our tour guide and he was very patient with my parents who are almost 80. The van was very clean complete with flowers. We wanted to see Muir woods. He drove us... More

My wife and I like taking private tours of new cities, and our experience with Silver Lion was perfect. Tatiana Gruner was our guide, and drove us in her van to see the neighborhoods and major monuments and parks. A great 5 hour summary to concentrate our short visit to San Francisco. Highly recommended.

I booked a private tour of San Fran with a drop off in Napa for my parents. I was impressed by the prompt communication and ease in planning. They truly know good customer service. My parents had the pleasure of having Holger as their tour guide. He was wonderful! Champagne toast at Golden Gate Bridge- the attention to detail and... More

So relieved we booked this, we wouldn't have seen/learnt even a 1/3 of much of/about San Fran if we hadn't. Josh was awesome, we were very well taken care of - Josh not only offered a world of knowledge on absolutely everywhere we went but treated us to a wine overlooking the Golden Gate, water throughout our trip and even...
