The guide was very informative and I discovered new things about the city. The guide was friendly and tried to cater the tour to our needs. However the price point is a little high when you compare it to tours like Alcatraz or big bus which include motorized travel and other costs in it. Reduce the price and this would be a perfect deal!

Response from Road12212776515, Front Office Manager at Real San Francisco Tours
Responded Jan 12, 2022
Hi Snigdha, thanks so much for coming on a tour with us and so glad you liked Kevin. In terms of the price Alcatraz is a completely different scale of operation, often with huge groups, and it's a non-profit. The Big Bus is more of a transport operation - it's not an experience like ours. As I'm sure you discovered, San Francisco is an expensive city, dropping the price is just not an option - it's doubtful any tour companies here are making any money at the moment. Another (better :-) way of viewing your experience is that you got a private tour for your whole family with, in our opinion, the best guide in SF. For that, you got a great deal.

We just had a two day layover in San Francisco, so we wanted to make the most of our time there. It's always been somewhere we wanted to visit and on this tour we got to see pretty much all the places we most dreamed of going - downtown, Nob hill, Hayes Valley, Castro, Haight Ashbury, painted ladies, Lombard St, North beach and Chinatown. It was only a small group and the guide was totally amazing. It wasn't tiring at all and we had a great time jumping from trains to buses to cable cars (all travel included). AWESOME DAY!!!

This was such an interesting deep dive into both the Castro and Mission neighborhoods, for which we luckily had an incredibly sunny warm summer day. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, having grown up in the area, and pointed out not only historical places, but beautiful murals, homes in both areas, and fun nooks and crannies (like hidden stairways to streets) that we never would have seen on our own. We definitely came away with much more of an appreciation for the Castro and Mission ( love Dolores Park!), and will seek out other neighborhoods on our next trip!

My wife and I did the Castro to the mission tour. We eat some great food and learnt some cool history. We'd definitely recommend the company to anyone visiting San Francisco. The guide was really nice and helpful with suggestions on other things to do during our stay.

I was visiting San Francisco for business and came across this new company. I'd done a tour with their sister company in Los Angeles a few years ago, so I thought I'd give them a try. Wasnt disappointed. Kevin, the guide, was great. So knowledgeable about san Francisco and such pleasant company. It was great to be outdoors and seeing and learning about a different part of the city. Highly recommended!
