Our tour with Rick was the highlight of our vacation! He arrived on time at our hotel for pickup in his very nice minivan. We quickly discussed what we'd like to see & we were off. He really knew his way around the city & customized the tour to see everything on our list as well as several other sites... More

We just finished a custom tour with Rick this weekend and had a blast. He was very knowledgeable and was the best tour guide we had in San Fran. Highly recommend booking a tour with Rick if you are ever there.

Rick was very accomodating, and really thought about meeting our needs. He's a great guy, and extremely knowledgeable. We saw so much of the city, we never would have been able to on our own. We highly reccomend using Rick, much nicer than a big bus!

I researched many sites on the 'net for private tours of San Francisco. Rick has a van that holds only 6 passengers, which I wanted. We hired Rick for 2 different tours for my cousin visiting from Sweden. While I had been in SF many times, I saw and learned more about the City than ever. Rick is a very... More
