Sis, aunt and niece arrived in San Francisco via cruise ship 9/20/16. We had booked a tour in advance, emailing our list of primary interests. Guide and driver Holger van Deun picked us up at the ship in a wonderful vehicle (even comfy in the back seat) and took us on the best tour ever. The company had paid close... More

We chose to do a private tour because of the excellent reviews & we were not disappointed. Our friendly guide Dan met us on time & took us to Muir Woods, Sausalito, Marin Headlands, down Lombard St, through the... More

Holger was a brilliant guide, very knowledgeable, and was quick to suss out what our children (6 and 8) like, totally got their attention. We saw more of San Francisco than we expected to! Even my daughter (8) said that she had thought a tour was going to be boring but it was awesome! The whole tour was relaxing, fun... More

The booking was easy, the van was immaculate, the knowledge of the are was incredible. Ending the tour with the most unbelievable view of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay... More

We were picked up by Horger at 10am for our trip down the coast from Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Monteray and Carmel By the Sea. Horger was excellent. He showed us all the mainstream sites and many off the beaten path. It was definitely worth the trip and we were so impressed with his local knowledge. Would definitely recommend!!

Don't miss an opportunity to drive around the beautiful city of San Francisco and Muir Woods with Dirk. He is a great tour guide - very knowledgable and personable. We traveled with 2 teens and he was great at interacting with them and finding fun things to show us. Next time in SF, we will book again with Dirk.

After reading other reviews, we decided to see if we could get our own tour. After a couple of phone calls, we were booked for the next day. We were picked up by Dirk, who turned out to be amazing. We toured the area landmarks and feel this was the highlight of our vacation. Thank you again Dirk, your knowledge... More

Very easy to book. Dan arrived on time and took our family of 6 very comfortably exactly where we wanted to go. Had a great tour of Muir Woods, Sausalito, Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street etc. Very informative, very friendly guide. Gave us a great start to our trip. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them again.

Silver Lion tours provides an amazing service. We were a family of 6 people with 2 kids and fortunate enough to have Holger take us around SF. He took us to the beautiful places we could have never seen otherwise. Looking at the Golden gate Bridge from different angles was very nice. I recommend Silver Lion tours to all families.... More
