Gary was a great guy! His company motto 'it's like travelling with a friend" says it all. He showed us 5 girls all around the best parts of San Francisco and we went wherever we asked him to go. We had limited time in San Fran and Gary was definitely a great way to see a lot! He suggested a range of restaurants and affordable places to eat and drink. He is also a professional photographer and gave us lots of hints about how to get the best shots of all the places we went.
Thanks again for a great time Gary!

From the moment Gary picked us up he made us feel comfortable as he has a warm, friendly, welcoming personality with a bit of humour added in. We are a group of 5 young Australian girls so we just wanted to see all the touristy places in San Francisco. It was evident how much love and knowledge Gary had for the area as he wished he could show us everything! He knows great places to get the best shot of aspects of the city. He took us up a mountain away from the tour buses to get the best photo of the golden gate bridge. After the tour he recommended a lovely place for lunch and dropped us of there. It was a lovely 4 hours with Gary seeing the sights of beautiful San Francisco and money definitely well spent!

Gary picked us up at our hotel on time, with a clean, comfortable vehicle, ready for a customized morning tour. We enjoyed his friendly, easy-going personality as well as his knowledge of the area. He is also a professional photographer, so he knows exactly where the best photo opportunities are. Even if you are comfortable driving in San Francisco, you would not know "who lives where," or any of the "insider" information that Gary so easily provides in addition to the more obvious tourist info. He very obligingly dropped us off at the ferry for our afternoon tour of Alcatraz. If we could give more than 5 stars, we definitely would do so!

We had a super day with Gary. With only a short time in SF our tour with Gary was a very convenient way to see this beautiful city. Gary was friendly, obliging, good humored and his company was very much enjoyed by our family.

Gary is a witty, personable, photographer and tour guide. He knows the city and surrounding areas well. He showed us SF neighborhoods and the sites with good humor. And he has good ideas for places to eat. It is a plus to ride in a comfortable newer Honda Odyssey. Gary knows how to have a good time.
