I arranged to have a private tour for my 88-year-old mother who grew up in SF and hadn't been back for many, many years. Holger arranged the PERFECT tour. He went beyond my wildest expectations - everything was incredible! My mother still talks about the tour as "a magical day." I could not have been happier and am so glad... More

Getting picked up at SFO by Holger was great. We wanted to see a bit of SF, (Exploratorium!) and then get driven to our hotel. Holger knew just how to balance driving past sights with getting out to explore and take photos. We also benefited from his own area knowledge. He recommended for us the Disney Family Museum, lunch at... More

Our driver was Dirk for the tour today. I can't think of a better person they could hire for this job. We saw all that San Francisco had to offer from beaches to parks to the great scenic views of twin peaks. Thanks for a wonderful trip Dirk, The Pliler and Davis families

This is our second time using Silver Lion. This time we went to Muir Wood. They are very accommodating and your day is yours to do what you want. They know exactly where to take you and no time is wasted with directions. A very enjoyable day that you must do.

Dirk provided a day to remember in San Francisco. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. Dirk was knowledgeable, professional and personable. By the end of the day we felt like he was a family member. He picked us up at our hotel right on time and delivered back at end of the day. We appreciated the stress... More

Our day with Dirk was great! At the end it felt more like we had a family friend in town who showed us the sites than a tour. The tour was customized to what we want to see, and boy did we see a lot! I was amazed how much ground we covered in 1 day. The tour guide was... More

Not only was he professional, he remembered what was most important to us from my one telephone conversation. My husband is a bridge builder, so he made certain that the bridges locally were not shown scarcely. We started... More

We were unsure whether we should do a guided tour or explore ourselves. After a little reading on the Internet and TripAdivisor, we decided to go with a tour to get the best experience. And we were very glad we did a tour with Silver Lion Service. Our tour guide Danilo Dacosta was very flexible with our suggested itinerary. He... More
