My daughter (college-aged) picked San Francisco for vacation this year. She loves to keep moving and Tatiana couldn't have done a better job showing us around San Francisco. We started out with plans for only 4 hours but 7 hours later we were still going. From the behind the scenes information to her patience with our explorations and numerous photos... More

Holger was wonderful. Great guy, nice clean van, lots of little extras. Saw the sites on our list plus much more. Family members visiting from Austria thoroughly enjoyed the Deutsch tour. Holger was gracious enough to translate an emotional family discussion over lunch! Finally, he even provided advice for our self guided tour the next day up to Sonoma and... More

We did a four hour tour of San Francisco with Danilo, our tour guide. He was very friendly and courteous with us the entire time, always helping us out of the van, answering all our questions and giving us history about the city. This was our first full day in San Francisco of 4 days total. We were surprised that... More

I was given the tour by the owner, Holger. He is truly an amazing tour, that thinks of every single detail. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a unique tour of San Francisco.

We have visited San Francisco on our way to the wine country, but never really saw the city. This tour really gave us a great view of the city, it's history and different cultural areas. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and modified the tour based on our interests and needs. I would highly recommend this tour.

We were staying at the Four Seasons and asked them to find a private tour for us. They were unable to deliver so I spent a few hours on the Internet and emailed several companies. Holger replied immediately and was able to accommodate us the same day! Tatjana picked us up at the hotel and was lovely! Gave us a... More

Dirk was at our hotel at 10 AM just as expected. I had never been to SF before. He took us to everything we wanted to see and then some. He was knowledgeable and professional, as well as an excellent driver. During 6 hours we saw a lot, had fun and were not exhausted. We were so happy, we booked... More
