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

We just got back from our tour and our guide, Dirk, showed us EVERYTHING and more. We had a few ideas of what we wanted to see, but most times he had better ones. We saw views of the Golden Gate that were beyond spectacular, lots of hidden spots (won't give those away!), Sausalito, Muir Woods, and basically every single... More

Holger ("Tour Monkey" to my kids) spent the day taking our family of four (tween, teen, & 2 adults) to everything we wanted to see in and around San Francisco and so much more. We hit all of the standard tour stops, but Holger added so much from dropping us right at the door to visit the Cable Car Museum... More

I booked a 4 hour tour as a surprise for my wife and bringing along an 18 month old daughter wasn't quite sure on what to expect. But from start to finish the tour was great and we managed to see so many of the sights that were on our list. Our tour guide was called Durk ( i hope... More

Had a wonderful private tour with Roger. He was knowledgable, funny, and a pleasure to be with. He did a great job showing us the hidden gems in San Francisco. I highly recommend Silver Lion.
