If you do nothing else when you’re in San Francisco you must book this tour especially if it’s your first time visiting the city. Chad was great, so friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the music he played relevant to a particular place we were at, and all the interesting facts told with a great sense of humour. Thanks Chad for a fab 4 hours. Highly recommend.

Chad is an excellent tour guide (and driver). He tailored the tour to the interests of my two teenage daughters. They had a ball.

Of course, the experience of driving around San Francisco in a 1971 VW Combi van was THE highlight for me (as well as the indefatigable San Francisco fog which obscured the view of the Golden Gate and the Bay). Despite the fog, and impeded view, Chad ensured that our experience was interesting, diverse and engaging.

I would fully recommend Vantigo to anyone that is seeking a broad experience of San Francisco in half a day.

I highly recommend taking a tour of San Francisco with Vantigo. Chad was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and has a passion for sharing fun facts and history. He also took enough time at stops to let people take photos and he volunteered to take photos of each group. This tour was much more intimate and personal than any other tour I have taken in San Francisco. It is evident that Chad loves his job and he strives hard to make sure everyone has a good time and enjoys the tour.

We had a great time viewing San Francisco. The tour provides a unique way of seeing the city on a VW. When we passed by people on the streets they pointed and took pictures. Chad made the tour fun for my 9 year old son and kept his interest the entire time. We even had the opportunity to play Vantigo's unique version of Bingo. You will not be sorry if you book the tour.

Fantastic tour of the city.

Loved the VW van. Chad had great knowledge of the city and seemed to hit the key spots. We were also impressed with his knowledge of the history of the city and surrounding area. Since we went with a private tour, Chad was able to be flexible and hit some specific sights we wanted to see. He seemed to make an extra effort for us to see many of the views despite being a foggy morning. At the end of the tour, he offered to drop us off at a restaurant in China Town where we wanted to eat.

The van was clean and had plenty of room. I was very impressed with Chad’s ability to use a standard transmission in this extremely hilly area.

The tour was well worth the price and we would do it again. It was the highlight of our visit to San Francisco.

We met Chad from our cruise ship at Port of San Francisco.

The VW van he picked us up was 50 years of age and so classic. Every place we went we got loving and admiring looks. It was really comfortable inside and Chad was a brilliant host. He offered drinks and snacks to our children when ever they wanted them which was really kind.

The tour was excellent. We really think we couldn't have seen any more of this wonderful city in the time we had.

I couldn't recommend this chap and tour enough. He's a lovely, beautiful human being.

Thanks Chad, until the next time.

This tour was amazing!!! Chad is a history buff and it shows!! He drove us all over San Francisco and was able to give us all kinds of info about the different areas. I would totally do this tour again, but next time I’d do it in the first day. He showed us so many places I didn’t know about. Wish he had a book about all the stops we made and the stories he was able to tell us! I’ll never remember them all. Hope to take my kids down and do the tour with him again!!

We had an amazing 4 hour private tour with Vantigo. Our tour guide Chad was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He made the tour tons of fun for our entire group of 7 that ranged in ages from 9 to 75. I couldn’t imagine a better tour of San Francisco than in a classic VW van with a fabulous tour guide. Highly recommend.

In a VW bus - no less! Our group of six will tell you this was a great tour. Eliza, our tour guide and VW bus driver...was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about San Francisco and gave us facts and stories to remember. This was mine and my wife's first trip to San Francisco, (while the others had been there previously), and all of us were pleased with the locations we visited. The time went by very quickly but was well worth it. Thanks Eliza. We highly recommend this tour.

Everything was perfect! Thanks again to Chad, fantastic guide, professional, kind. We loved the tour and really discovered San Francisco. In addition with our last child of 7 years old, Chad knew how to occupy him, captivate him with games. Gourmet breaks, beer or wine snacking ! It was great.
20/20 continue like that
We recommend to all and also to families !
