Overview
You're in a special city. Why take an ordinary tour? This is the ONLY convertible MINI Cooper tour in the country!

This tour is totally customizable – you choose the length of the tour, what time you want to be picked up, and what you want to see.

I love San Francisco and have spent 20 years studying and exploring the city. I’ll work with you to plan your tour so you can see the famous sites and the hidden gems other tours can't go to or don't know about. I’ve designed this to be the type of tour I would take if I visited San Francisco, but where you go is up to you. I make suggestions along the way, but how long you spend at any site is up to you. You're never rushed, and never have to wait for other people. It's all about you!

Plus, it's fun! In the convertible MINI Cooper, you see everything up close and personal as we drive along.

I love showing guests San Francisco, and talking about the history and culture of this unique and special city.

Your very own Custom and Private tour. The first thing that Reed asked was "where do you want to go"? Get a hold of Reed directly at 4155295404 or his website smallcarbigtimetours. We drove all over for 4 hours and saw lots of interesting things we would not other wise have seen. What a great way to see the city. Reed is very knowledgeable about the city and history. In the Mini Copper, you feel like you are part of the city and now just riding around in a car. BOOK this TOUR! Give Him a Call, you won't regret it.

As a 79 year old lady with a 56 year old son who have never been to San Francisco I had a few trepidations about whether a motor tour would be an appropriate undertaking. Reed relieved me of all my concerns when he turned out to be such a warm, friendly, well informed person and was very concerned with my comfort and our ability to hear all of his descriptions of the places we visited. It was thrilling for a lady of my age to visit Haight Ashbury and my son got a kick out of the crookedest street in the world! We enjoyed the rest of our time in SF because Reed showed us where everything was and he gave us invaluable info about where to eat and other places to visit. If you are looking for a custom designed private tour of SF please reach out to Reed directly at 4155295404 or visit his website at smallcarbigtimetours.

If you want a fabulous tour of San Francisco, or a restaurant recommendation contact Reed directly at 4155295404 or his website smallcarbigtimetours. From the moment I signed my husband and I up for a 3hour tour Reed was on it. He emailed us a list of restaurants, reduces cost tours, sites to see, and info on how to get around San Francisco. I wished I would have contacted Reed prior to paying for my other tours. And OH BOY, does he know San Francisco! He knows every detail, history, place to eat, places see and he is lots of fun. My husband and I had a contest to see which one of us could stump him. Give him a ring, I am sure you will love the experience as much as we did. PS- Wear a wind breaker if you decide to drive across the Golden Gate Bridge. Happy Vacationing.
