“Great way to see and learn SO much!!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We had a 12hour wait until our next flight in San Francisco, and wanted to see the city while waiting. We arrived early in the morning, went first to Alcatraz and after that the tour guide, Anton, from GHT came and picked us up by the Pier. We had booked the city tour and learned SO much, and saw so many things, places, and views! Anton was VERY knowledgably, so we kinda' felt we were on a tour with "google", LOL (always using google when we want to know something, so that is a very good thing to be like google!).

We definitely recommend GHT, you will not be disappointed! =D

“Fantastic day out”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

What a fantastic day! We selected the Muir Woods and Wine Country Tour. We were picked up in the morning in a spotless, comfortable, SUV for a drive out to the redwoods, seeing some of the City’s highlights on the way. Muir Woods was a fantastic selection for us, being from Australia seeing the redwoods was quite a treat and we even got to see some woodpeckers!! The wineries were well selected with good wines, knowledgeable hosts and they weren’t too busy. We did the redwoods first, visited Larson Estate Winery, stopped for lunch in Sonoma and then visited Homewood Winery. On the way back we were lucky enough to stop and take some fantastic pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge and visit Lombard Street.

Our tour guide, Patricia was knowledgeable about San Francisco and able to answer even our weirdest questions. We were so appreciative that Patricia took the time to show us some extra special places in the city on the way to and from the hotel. She really made our tour special as her passion for San Francisco was obvious and this transferred through to us. We spent a long time choosing this tour and were very happy with our choice.

Tip: We were a group of four and ordered a semi-private tour on a weekday. It was cheaper than a private tour and we were lucky enough to get the SUV all to ourselves.

“Great way to see the sites of SF”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Four of us from Australia only had 2 nights in SF so booked a half day tour to see the sites, we were picked up in an SUV by Mary, who was just great, told as things we we would never have thought about, she felt like a family member, so friendly. As traffic was very quiet we had time to do some extra things, it was very relaxed, we were never hurried. We were dropped off where we wanted. Being in the SUV was great as we got to drive down Lombard St. Can recommend Golden Horizon Tours, they were very easy to deal with.

“A perfect day in San Francisco”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Our group wanted to make efficient use of a short (and first) stay in San Francisco, and Jon provided the perfect tour. He drove us into every corner of the city and entertained us with narration that was lively and full of intriguing historical and cultural details. He was thoroughly professional and considerate (stopping at just the right times for photos or restroom breaks) and engaging; we whole-heartedly recommend him and Golden Horizon!

“Firstclass Private Citytour”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

We were 7 people and wanted to jointly undertake a private tour. We have selected a very long time and the result has exceeded our expectations completely. The driver and tour guide at the same time Jon was perfect. He knew to tell about every house and something we had in the four hours really a lot of fun. Also, thanks to his knowledge we stayed in no traffic jam and hang for mini groups can only recommend this private tour. Also the price was right.
