We were supposed to meet at 6:30 on a Sunday night. Our tour was booked through Viator. We arrived on time and waited in the cold and rain. We tried to call them, but got a message that we were closed. We contacted Viator who...More

Thanks for leaving this review. You sound upset, and I don't blame you, I would be too. But if you are upset with us, it is only because you are not getting the whole story. No one at Viator filled you in on...More
Great local tour filled with local color and cuisine. Each tour is unique and the company is constantly changing where they take customers. We sampled local Salvadorian, Burmese, Southern BBQ, Spanish tapas, and locally made chocolate. At most stops we both sampled their traditional faire...More
Had a great time exploring and visiting the temple and eateries here. Walking amid the old buildings and embrace the architecture of old building was a wonderful experience. We enjoy the sumptuous and authentic HK wanton noodle on the way prepared by an old Chinese...More
Michael and David were so nice and friendly! While the tour didn't seem too structured, they guided us to some very interesting and tasty spots in the Ferry Building, all the while making it fun. Some tastings we would have never tried on our own...More
Michael was so helpful and accomodating with our planning and great communication which hasn't always been our experience with other food tours. Terrific afternoon exploring the Mission District and trying some great food. Our guide was also adaptable to some unexpected restaurant issues and very...More
3 of us did the Mission Sweets Tour on a Friday afternoon with David as our guide. Because we were the only ones, David asked us what we would enjoy and customized the tour accordingly.
We started at Dandelion Chocolates where I was surprised to...More
While we were glad to have been to Alcatraz, the food tour was the highlight! Our guide obviously loves food of all kinds, much as San Francisco, and is passionate about the Mission. We tasted things we would not have tried otherwise, and learned a...More
We visited San Fran over the summer holidays as part of a school study tour from Hong Kong. None of the teachers had any previous experience of the area and planning the tour was proving to be tricky, especially figuring out the local transport. With...More
Disappointing. I cannot recommend this company to my friends.
My husband and I have been on many other food tours in other cities around the world, and have been very pleased each time, with this exception.
We were scheduled for the North Beach Food Tour....More
We signed up for this combo to get Alcatraz tickets. The Dessert tour was a nice addition. Got to sample some excellent sweets and got to see the Mission District, which we otherwise would not have seen. We really got to see a unique part...More
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
Hi, I am planning a 3 week trip to California and Las Vegas together with my family, 5 persons, March 2016. I already have a schedule and some destinations which I would like to visit.

Day 2: In the early morning Rent a car and drive to Grand Canyon South Rim and explore full day and stay for a night at near hotel Day 3: Explore...More

Hi Yes, the portion of your trip between Las Vegas and San Francisco is the one with the most challenges. It's a full day to drive from Las Vegas to SE quoia KI ngs Canyon (SEKI) NP, so you won't have a full day of tourism. Then it's 4 hours to drive from SEKI to Yosemite Valley, so again, not enough time. Then it's 4 more hours to SF from Yosemite Valley. In March, Death Valley NP is a great place to explore. If it interests you, spend most of a day there, then exit and stay on the...More

Why are you driving south to Del Mar and La Jolla(part of the city ofSan Diego) but not staying there to see/do anything?? That does not make sense at all!!! IF you are not planning to do anything there then there is no point of going there!!

10 Day/9 Night Trip to Bay Area (8 Replies)
I am planning a family trip (dates TBD, likely fall) to the San Francisco area and wanted to get some advice on how much time to spend in particular areas and best ways to get around.

Here is a tentative schedule: Day 1 - Flight arrival in SFO, check into hotel, dinner downtown? Days 2 & 3 - Explore San Francisco (Alcatraz, Ferry Building,...More

Hi As this is the San Francisco forum, most of the topics are about SF. The public transit info & the convention calendar (avoid them!) in the Top Questions on the right will be useful. For your overall itinerary planning, the Top Q on the California forum might help. I think the order is a bit wacky. If you really want to spend some of your vacation driving all the way to Redwood National & State Parks, do that before or after Napa. End with Monterey as it's south of SF and SFO is...More
