“Great intro to the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We took a morning SF city tour with Tom. Best choice we could have made for our first day! He made sure to stop at all of the major sights, giving us a lot of "insider" information about each place. He was very flexible, allowing us to take extra time at some vistas, and take extra pictures at others. He answered all of our questions, and kept the teenagers interested throughout the 4 hour tour. Great combination of driving and exploring - so much to see that a 1/2 day tour is the way to go to get a flavor of what to visit more in-depth another day.

I would recommend this company and this tour guide, Tom, to any SF visitor. Well worth the price!

“The "One & Only" way to see San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

I can honestly say that our tour of San Francisco escorted by Buddy was absolutely fantastic. We chose to have the tour on the first day of our trip to San Francisco and because of the wealth of information that Buddy shared with us it gave us an opportunity to further explore places of interest that he showed us and explained to us over the following days that we spent in the region.

I have to say Buddy's knowledge of the city is exceptional and his enthusiasm in sharing this knowledge is unsurpassed.

I will definately recommend Golden Horizon Travel to anyone who is looking for a way to explore the city with an articulate, educated and enthusiastic guide who without doubt made our holiday in San Francisco complete. A 5*PLUS experience.

Thank you to Buddy and to the team at Golden Horizon - we had a fabulous time.

“Excellent tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We really enjoyed the tour and Buddy did a fantastic job! I would highly recommend you as well as Buddy. He had a wealth of knowledge and passion for what he does and for the Bay area. We did the tour for my son’s 13th birthday and I am sure it was an experience he will never forget. Buddy was very flexible to accommodate our wishes. I would give him 5 stars.
Thanks again,
Alan

“Muir Woods - Stinson Beach - Bolinas - Pt Reyes Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Toi say the least we were very pleased with this tour, Having been on several tours throughout the states, I would rate this among the best if not the best,
Tour guide Mary was an excellent guide, extdremely knowledgeable and I do not hesitate to rate her a 5 Star Plus!

I would not honestly reommend any improvements, it was simply outstanding,.

TOUR WAS IN NOVEMBER 2012 - OTHERWISE COULD NOT HAVE SUBMITTED

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOUR TOURS TO ANYONE AND WOULD STRONGLY SUGGEST MARY AS THE TOUR GUIDE. SHE ADDED GREATLY TO OUR ENJOYMENT OF THE TOUR.

I DO PLAN ON ANOTHER SHORTLY AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR

“Tall Trees !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

It was an excellent tour where you get to view the huge redwood trees. You get to stroll through the park filled with the trees. It was serene, peaceful and relaxing. The only negative was that the tour only spends one and a half hours in the park. On the way back the tour dropped by the seaside town of Sausalito where you can do some shopping and have lunch. There are lots of nice cafes and restaurants.
