I booked a full day tour with Eric for my family when we were visiting San Francisco mid-June. Not only was he punctual and professional, he made the day a lot of fun. He is full of tips and information, and is great about modifying the tour based upon our needs. We spent the day touring San Francisco and Muir Woods. I would not hesitate to recommend Eric to anyone and plan to use him again for a tour of Napa when I return in the fall!

Highly recommend for a private tour to the vineyards. We had a super day visiting the Russian river wineries with Eric, 5 family and friends from Australia.
Eric is very informative and a great host!

I worked with Eric to book a sightseeing tour for Bob Moore, President of Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods, and his executive assistant, Nancy Garner, while they were in town for a trade show. It was a pleasure to plan the trip with Eric. He recommended many good places to see, responded to my emails and phone calls promptly, and was very flexible. Nancy has her own experiences to share about the tour:

"When a traveler has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit a very special place, having a driver with a first class vehicle is prime. We had just such an experience in the San Francisco Bay Area earlier this year - going back to visit the home of my childhood. Afterward, Eric took us to see all the high points of San Francisco. The full size vehicle was clean and comfortable, and Eric knew his way around the complex city, giving us a delightful commentary on each site we visited. You won't miss by giving Eric a call!"

Eric took or family on a great tour of Yosemite! He was very full of knowledge about San Francisco and the towns we traveled through on the way. We saw all the great spots in Yosemite and even took a scenic route on the way back for us to see Oakland & Treasure Island. I would definitely recommend him. He was able to customize our trip for us before we went based on our conversation and was willing to change plans throughout the day when one of our hikes look longer than expected. It's hard to predict what can happen when you know you will be with a total stranger for 12 hours, but Eric is a genuinely nice guy!

We highly recommend Eric for any type of tour. With his help, we had a memorable family vacation in California, and saw much more than we could have on our own. Eric was recommended by the concierge at our hotel, and we were lucky to find him. He helped us plan our few days based on our interests, made great suggestions, even altered plans due to changes in weather forecasts. We traveled with our two college age children, and we all found Eric to be professional, knowledgeable and a good guy. His tips and plans for San Francisco, wine country (quick visit for us), Big Sur and redwoods were great, and we had a memorable day in Yosemite with Eric's help. Eric is an awesome guide, and we highly recommend him.
