What an enjoyable day with friend in town Jesse! He picked our family of 4 from our hotel in the Fishermans wharf area and we saw everything we could have wanted to see that day! We drove Lombard street, through China Town, Presidio Heights, several neighborhoods with amazing homes, the painted ladies, over golden gate bridge, quick lunch in Sausalito, Muir Woods, Golden Gate Bridge view, Golden Gate Park. We received great information about the city and sites. A great day!

We had the greatest tour/day touring Muir Woods, and Napa Valley wineries. Our guide, Jesse, was so knowledgeable on the area, about the history of everything that we saw, or generally anything that we drove past. He has a great personality and was a very safe driver. He was prompt in corresponding via email with us, prior to the trip, and personally found wineries that he knew that we would love. He nailed it! It was a trip of a lifetime, and Jesse gets an A+ from start to finish. It’s a must do, find Jesse, and you will truly enjoy a great day too!

Dear Jesse, Thanks very much for sharing our day in San Francisco with us - the 8 hours that we spent together were not only informative and interesting, but also full of warmth and fun. Thanks for sharing your vast knowledge of a lovely city - it's very clear how much you love San Fransisco. We appreciated the thought you had put into preparing our trip and your suggestions for what we would like to see

We spent a wonderful day touring the Muir Woods followed by multiple stops in the Sonoma and Napa area. Jesse is truly like touring with a friend in town. Jesse utilizes his amazing local knowledge to share this beautiful region with clients. We could not possibly have covered a fraction of the sites, vineyards, and communities by touring on our own. Jesse tailored every minute of the day to our family! Even after numerous stops throughout the day, Jesse went above and beyond to squeeze in a couple of extra sites back in the city before dropping us at a restaurant just in time for our dinner reservations! A Friend in Town tour is a great value for an awesome day.

We spent a day with Jesse touring Marin county around Tiburon and Sausalito. He was very informative and very accommodating, we saw the Muir Woods and other scenic sites. Jesse knew a lot about this area and the entire San Francisco Bay and shared that information in a most enjoyable experience:)
