“Knowledge and Sights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

I took this tour based on what I've read on TripAdvisor and I was not let down. I was incredibly surprised by the knowledge of Stephan and the city he is hosting.

“Great tour, great value!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Stephan picked the three of us up at our rental apartment right on time! It was just us so we had a nice new ford flex to ride in! We saw all the sites listed and one extra stop to see how some boats are built! Stephan was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions! He even dropped us off 4 blocks from our apt at the Super Duper Burger (AWESOME)!! Highly recommend!!

“Golden Wealth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

This morning, Stephan took us for a tour of San Francisco. We were only three which was great because we travelled in a crossover vehicle and he did not have to raise his voice to be heard. He has deep historical and current knowledge of San Francisco including who's who and who lives where, music history, popular culture, American history, Spanish-Mexican-Asian, Native American history, sexual revolution, art, politics, real estate, functioning of the city and even the little details of the pulleys of the cable car! I believe he does this as his passion since his knowledge wealth goes well beyond the boundaries of California, US, Europe and Asia..... I will need a refresher tour soon.

“Great Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Stephan picked us up at Pier 39, after we did our Alcatraz tour. It wound up being just my husband, myself & Stephan, a "private tour" and was terrific. Stephan has a wealth of knowledge and made our 3 hour tour very memorable. Would recommend him to everyone!

“Take This Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We did the afternoon city tour with Stefan in Nov. There were only 4 of us but even with a bigger group this would be a personal tour. Stefan has an incredible wealth of knowledge of the city and does a fabulous job of taking you to all the sights and neighborhoods in SF, the whole time narrating all kinds of information on any number of topics. He stops at places like Chinatown, Golden Gate Bridge, Twin Peaks and the Academy of Arts (to see the Diego Rivera mural) so there is plenty of opportunity to take pictures. This was our first time in the city and we felt like we really had seen it by the end of the day. He even dropped us off at the apartment where we were staying in Pacific Hts. This ranked as one of the highlights of our 8-day Calif. trip. Thanks Stefan for a great afternoon.
