Owner description: Hey, there! I craft one adventure per day just for the small group on board and the unique goings on in the City that day. You will leave the double decker buses behind to explore the classic landmarks of SF plus its secluded stairways, secret views, outdoor art galleries and more in a 12-passenger "woody". Then continue your adventure on the infamous island of Alcatraz with the cell house audio tour, and time to explore the island on your own. Or... dive into a five-hour experience guaranteed to dazzle your taste buds and cultivate your curiosity. This multi-stop tour takes small groups of guests into the booming world San Francisco's craft beer and food scene. The tour includes a behind the scenes visit to a craft brewery with on-site tastings of their products, beer and food pairings at premier brewpubs, and food tastings in The City’s up-and-coming neighborhoods.

I loved SF Adventure Tours because they only take out a small group of people, small enough for our guide to customize the tour based on what we really wanted to see. Eric was experienced, fun, upbeat, and he has a mastery of puns. We saw San Francisco from every angle...everything from the secret nooks and crannies to the big attractions. He even provided us with jackets and cozy blankets when it got chilly. I could tell that Eric is a proud resident of San Francisco, and he really enjoyed sharing his city with us.

So, a new tour company is on the scene in San Francisco - as of today!

I took a spin around the City with SF Adventure Tours guide Eric today and was deeply impressed with his warm and knowledgeable professionalism. A cozy group of us spent the morning seeing, discussing, and reveling in this treasure of a city. Not only were we exposed to new insights on well-known landmarks [like Nob Hill, Chinatown & the GG Bridge], but we also had the opportunity to discover new favorites throughout the urban landscape [including Glen Park, the Presidio, and the Inner Sunset district], with parks, hills, and vistas large and small to capture our attention.

Unlike the far more conspicuous double-decker buses here, which have their limitations because of vehicle size and the amount of personal attention possible with that many passengers, the Adventure Tours truck was a perfect size for darting through traffic with little effort, and Eric's attention was prudently focused on task at hand, but also allowed us a number of stops for more detailed explanations, photo opportunities, and literal grounding in the spaces of the City.

I look forward to calling on Eric to guide me & my next guests around town - it'll be a special treat indeed!

(FYI: I live in SF now and previously lived here from the mid-'80s through the '90s, and have been a student of SF history, architecture, politics, and foodways since arriving here from southern California.)

My wife and I took the city tour with Eric. Not only is he knowledgeable, he is also extremely pleasant and easy to follow. The four hours flew by, and I look forward to returning to take another of his excursions. Well done SF Adventure Tours!
