Fantastic insight into the city of San Francisco and the surrounding suburbs. Jack was a great tour guide. Seen so much of the city which would be hard to cover by yourself in one day. We went to some amazing spots such as Muir Woods an Billionaires row. Would definitely recommend.

“Our favorite day in San Francisco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

We loved Dylan's tour and certainly saw places we would have never seen on our on. We were picked up in front of the St. Francis Hotel in Union Square(close to where we were staying). The driver, tour guide(Jack) was prompt, pick up at 10am. We had several stops for photos, a lunch stop at Haight-Asbury -we got a very good panini at a little sandwich shop. We really liked the little alley with all the murals. Loved Muir Woods-we had an hour and 15 minutes there-plenty of time to walk on the boardwalk path. The redwood trees are beautiful. We had a senior National Park pass so did not have to pay the $7 entrance fee to Muir Woods. We had a stop by the Golden Gate bridge on the way back into the city for another photo op. Jack was great and we had a very enjoyable day. We were dropped off in Union Square about 4pm-a full day and well worth the money. There were also several places for restroom stops.

Please!! Do yourself a favour - and book Dylan's Tours right now! There is no better way to get such a great overview of this amazing city than to let Brendon show off his city to you.

We booked this tour from Australia - no problems... great communication and payment was made after the tour ended.

It is obvious right from the get go that Brendon LOVES his home town. We loved that it was a small size bus and Brendon showed us a more personalized aspect of San Fran. It was more like a friend showing us around his hometown and we appreciated it.

We especially enjoyed Muir Woods and also being able to take the ferry back from Sausalito - such a lovely way to finish off a wonderful day of discovering the beauty of this iconic city.

Brendon gave us such a wonderful overview of SF. We thoroughly recommend taking one of Dylan's Tours - you won't be disappointed, in fact it will be the most memorable highlight of your visit to San Francisco!

“Great day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We really enjoyed this small intimate tour with Jack. Only 13 tourists this day we traveled around the neighborhood of San Francisco city with Jack giving us some insight of the life of a local. Stopped for a break at Haight Ashbury and we grabbed some lunch at the Haight Street Market. Best turkey sandwich which was large enough for two to share with some fruit. After this stop we headed over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and Muir Woods. Stopped for over an hour at Muir Woods which gave us time to eat our picnic lunch and take a walk through the tall trees. We stopped for photos of the Golden Gate Bridge before driving back to Union Square via China town. Being a small bus we got to go places the larger tours couldn't. (Take travel sickness tablets if you get motion sickness, you go and down a mountain via a winding road) Would highly recommend.

“Great overview of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We were so glad we took this San Francisco city tour. It was a terrific way to see parts of the city that would have been more difficult to visit on our own, with a lot of information added in. Leaving the city to see Muir Woods was great too. The only reason I hesitate to give it five stars is that the guide/driver (not Dylan) was a little standoffish. I don't think I saw him smile once all day. Still, the tour was terrific, and I'd recommend it to anyone visiting the city.
