Having heard positive reviews from friends who had employed Gary as their travel guide in San Francisco, we were eager to reaffirm their glowing opinions. Our trip was originally planned for March of 2020, but COVID happened. As another reviewer said, Gary was the ultimate professional. He gave us a refund with no hassle. After rescheduling our trip for October of 2021, we hired Gary for a combined San Francisco / Muir Woods day as well as a day in Sonoma. Prior to the trip, Gary made sure to ask about our interests, and he customized our tour accordingly. We were quite delighted to find that our two days spent with Gary were time and money well invested. Gary has the talent and charm to instruct and entertain passengers with his extensive knowledge about the various locales he takes you to. As a gregarious talker, Gary is adept at involving everyone in his personal tales of the lore surrounding the area. Ever obliging and polite, he’s always ready to indulge any whim, and he’s invariably conscientious about people’s needs and limitations. We were deeply impressed with his service and wholeheartedly recommend engaging his superlative abilities for any sightseeing journey around the San Francisco area.

This is an odd review because we have yet to meet Gary. We made a booking for September 2019 which we had to cancel due to serious illness then made a second booking for May 2020 which we have had to cancel due to Covid19. Our review is purely about Garys professionalism. In both cases our money was refunded promptly with no fuss. We very much hope to make another attempt at seeing San Francisco with Gary in 2021

Gary was an EXCELLENT tour guide!!! He was extremely knowledgable, friendly and very flexible. We have been on many private tours in cities around the world and Gary gets an A+++. We would have never seen half the things we did with Gary and it was nice to have someone else who knows the city map everything out. We went everywhere and had the best time!!!

It's not easy to WOW a 13 year old teen boy and his mom at the same time but Gary did just that, surprising us every step of the way with great stops and a wealth of knowledge. Gary is a bay area pro and his passion about this area is palpable from the get go. He even gave us advice before meeting us, sharing his favorite San Fran food and drink spots. I would highly recommend Gary's tour to anyone seeking a great bay area experience!
