    Best way to see the city!
    Armando was the perfect tour guide - he shared the historical significance of every we drove, as well as current events and knowledge - especially his food recommendations. I will be dragging all SF first timers in this tour in the future.

    we were 6 in our group. we made a Wonderfull tour. The guide was funny and very attentive to speak more slowly because we had 2 persons who are french only. So sometimes we translate . We recommend strongly this tour. a good way to see quickly a big part of san francisco and get the explanations.

    Great Value for Mother/Daughter Trip
    Laura was an exceptional guide. We greatly appreciate her starting the tour with a land acknowledgment. Her knowledge of the key sights in San Francisco was impressive and her positive attitude made the trip very enjoyable. We enjoyed the chance to get out at the Painted Ladies to live out our Full House dreams and the views of the Golden Gate Bridge were phenomenal. This tour is excellent value for those who are hoping to see the key sights in a short amount of time.

    San Francisco City Tour
    Absolutely fantastic time on this tour. Armando was our guide, and he was so friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the city and different areas. The VW, beer and wine - along with the music made the tour so special. It would be great to have a longer tour, but in 2 hours we were able to see so many places - and stop for photos! Great tour - highly recommend! Thank you Armando!!!!

    Up and Down and All Around - a San Fran Vehicular Adventure
    A great way to see the main sites of San Francisco via a VW van. Local guide was very knowledgeable about the area and provided insights into both the attractions and other activities going on in the city. The weather was fantastic for this tour - Golden Gate Bridge usually fogged in but no clouds during our tour made for great pictures! No food on this one, but some opportunities to buy if needed - take snacks if you can't last the two hours. Good way to start off your day and can continue afterwards since many eateries/restaurants are in the area along the way. Not extremely exciting, but very relaxing and enjoyable way to start your stay in a very vibrant area of SF.

    Fun Day Trip with great guide
    I don't drink, but everyone else on our family trip to San Francisco does! It was fun being driven around Napa in the cool vans. It's expensive, and each winery charges a tasting fee of $20 per person per stop (not included in the Painted Ladies fee), but it's nice to have someone else coordinate the trip. Jim was our tour guide and he was awesome! Funny and punctual! He was a great guide and we enjoyed driving down the 101 in the VW bus singing to his oldies at the top of our lungs.

    Wonderful Sonoma tour!
    My mom and I had a wonderful Sonoma wine tour with Painted Ladies! Our driver Jim was a great driver, very nice and knowledgeable about San Francisco and the Sonoma region. I’ve loved old VWs for years so that was a nice bonus too. I would definitely recommend!

    San Francisco City Tour
    Loved the van. Tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. Gave a great overview of the city. I would love to have it more in depth but you can only do so much in the time available.

    Sonoma Wine Tour
    This tour was amazing, including three very different wineries and tasting options. Lunch and the company of our driver James was over the top. We would do this every time we are visiting the area - perhaps a taco-tequila ride next time!!

    Great day in Sonoma!
    Our guide James was friendly, knowledgeable and fun to share the day with. We visited 3 vineyards, each of which was charming and unique. James was prompt for pickup and return back to our hotel. It was a great, memorable day.

We had a great time. We decided to take 4 people on a 3-hour private tour. Josh was our driver, and he was great! I would recommend this to anyone. He took us all over the city. He knew every street and when traffic blocked us, he easily worked around another way. He was amazing, knew all about the city and its history and made the whole thing fun and easy for us to see the city.

A spectacular way to see San Francisco, in style, if you can afford it. We had a vintage VW bus to ourselves to tour the city. Our guide Armando was friendly and courteous.

The best part about a Painted Ladies private tour is we got to see what we wanted, for as long as we wanted. No rushing. No boredom at places we didn’t care about.

Plan ahead! Do your research. The company will ask you ahead of time what you want to see and customize the tour to your desire.

We began with Chinatown and a fortune cookie factory. Little Italy, the pyramid building, Presidio, Ghirardelli’s chocolate factory, Lombard St. (crookedest street in the world), Casa Vista(home of the first US Irish coffee), Painted Ladies homes, Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods, Haight-Ashbury neighborhood (home of America hippie movement). You could also add cable cars, Fisherman’s Wharf, etc.

This is a small family owned business that really cares about customer service!

Warning: you may become a tourist attraction yourselves in the brightly painted VW busses. We saw lots of folks taking our busses picture all day long.

Cousin Al was just a fabulous tour guide. He listened to what we wanted to do and made sure we got that in and then along the way he added neat little stops. He played music to go along with our likes ( like Jimi Hendrix as we passed Jimis house) He knew a great place to stop for a bathroom break. He was knowledgeable and funny and I couldn't think of anyone better to have tour us around. This tour really was the highlight of our visit. We loved Rosie - our red VW- who got lots of fun waves from people on the street. She had charging spot for our phones which was a bonus.

Alan was a wonderful guide. Due to the pandemic we were the only 2 on the bus, so we got the grand tour! Saw everything and more any tourist would want to see! Alan was very informative on things SF! We were in town only because my mothers bucket list, a train ride. Figured we were this close to SF you should see something, so really the Painted Ladies tour was our only plan here, and so worth it. Great memory for my mother and I. Thank you again Alan for a great day. Would recommend Painted Ladies tour to anyone coming to SF.

Had only a small window to see the city and this 2-hour tour was a great opportunity to get a feel for the city. We drove through a bunch of different neighborhoods, drove down Lombard St, and made three stops including one at the Presidio. The VW bus was surprisingly comfortable. My husband and I sat in the back seat too. Way roomier than expected. Our tour guide James was very informative, even though he was fairly new. This is my 2nd time on the tour. As the bus only fits 6 guests, it felt more like a personal tour and way better than being on a bus with 40 people.

We did this on the first morning that we were in San Francisco and I couldn’t recommend it high enough. Armando was so good. 3 Adults and 4 kids and not once did we stop chatting and laughing and learning about the city.

It was so good and also learnt best ways to get around and what else to see. No way would we have seen anything like we did in a big bus tour. Highly recommend this company

Our family booked a private 2 hour tour of San Francisco with Painted Ladies. Our tour guide Armando was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He was as interested in learning about us and where we were from, as he was to share his excellent knowledge and history of the city.
The time flew by and I would love to book him for the whole day next time we are in the city.

We had a private tour with Armando. I can say enough about him and his knowledge. We had been to San Francisco several times and he was able to so us a San Francisco like never before. My 82 year old mother, who had never been to California, can’t stop talking about how awesome Armando was at his job.

Our family took a private afternoon tour through San Francisco and it was amazing! Our guide Caio was wonderful! He was energetic, knowledgeable and made sure we saw everything on our list and more! I think we smiled or laughed through the entire trip. We only had 3 days in San Francisco and this was the absolute best way to see a huge portion of the city. We HIGHLY recommend!

Excellent tour of the city! Our guide was knowledgeable and upbeat. This tour made it possible for us to see a few famous sites during our short visit. Our guide even had a timed music soundtrack to go with some of our stops. I appreciated that wonderful attention to detail.
