Holger took us on a day trip to Muir Woods and Sonoma. It was such an awesome day! He was on time and very informative. We were taken to places we would have never known to go to on our own and saw some beautiful views of the ocean and city. The deli he choose for us had the best... More

We had a 7 hour layover in San Francisco from 3pm to 10pm. There were no tours going at that time, so I checked Trip Advisor and there were several Private Tour Companies. We chose Silver Lion Service.

I am a bit late in writing this review but my mom, sister, and I visited San Francisco in October last year and went on a tour. We spent a fantastic day touring San Francisco and making wonderful memories. We saw things we wouldn't have found on our own and learned all kinds of wonderful historical facts. At the end... More

I have been on quite a few tours and this one is simply THE best I have been on. Holger brought us to places we would have never found and gave us the time and explanation so we could really enjoy and comprehend the attraction. We were treated to chocolates, coffee, and even champagne. You can even prolong the tour... More

Just say no to tour buses and hire a great private tour guide when you visit San Francisco. Holger was wonderful with the kids -- funny, patient and loaded with goodies. We visited Fort Point (a hit with the boys) and Muir Woods before an unexpected and wild ride through the steepest streets of the city (plus Lombard, of course).... More

Holger toured us around SF for 4 hours today. I love SF and have been here many times ... and I finally convinced my elderly mother-in-law to come for a couple days. Holger charmed her right off the bat, and showed her all of the areas I wanted her to see and experience. She loved the Victorian houses, the views... More

We cannot say enough good things about Holger and our recent experience with Silver Lion Private Tours of San Francisco. Discovered him on Trip Advisor, contacted owner by email on short notice and he fit us in after he had already finished one tour that day. We had already explored quite a bit of the San Francisco area on our... More

We spent four wonderful hours with Holger. The time just flew by. We are a couple in our 50's and have been to San Francisco many times. We wanted to experience the neighborhoods that we have not done in the past. Holger knew exactly what we wanted and arranged many interesting stops, including "Treasure Island." Holger loves showing guests his... More

We spent 6 fabulous hours with Dani our tour guide. He picked us up in front of the cruise terminal where our ship was docked, right on time. It was my Mom, Dad, husband and me. Dad is in a wheelchair and Dani was extremely attentive and kind. We saw all of the sites that one expects to see in... More

What a fab day we had with Holger. I chose Silver Lion Tours after seeing such fab reviews on Trip Advisor. I wasn't disappointed. Holger arrived at our hotel with lots of enthusiasm and energy. He showed us all the main sites of San Francisco and some hidden treasures we wouldn't have found ourselves. We had a very (unusually) foggy... More
