After carefully reading reviews on Tripadvisor have decided to make tour with Holger for our party of five. Even before we start our tour Holger was very helpful with suggestions and recommendations about places to go, restaurants, etc. We planned to make 6 hours tours however we had so much fun that at the end of day we spent 10 hours with Holger and saw so much of the San Francisco and nearby location including Muir Woods. He has great knowledge of San Francisco history as well as special places and is able to keep you interested for hours, which also includes my two teenagers. In fact he constantly was challenging them with questions and real life stories so they forgot about Facebook and internet for couple of hours, which is really unbelievable job. I can say that by the end of tour we felt as friends, not as customers. When I am back in San Francisco, will certainly arrange another tour with Holger and would definitely recommend him to anyone going to San Francisco... Thanks Holger , it was unforgettable and looking forward to see you again…

I am not sure what more I can add to other reviews. We did the 4 hour private tour and it was such a fun experience. Holger explains this tour is for you and he means it. He hit all the spots we asked about in San Francisco and more. But, he makes it so fun with some touches I won't be a spolier about. It was for all ages.

Maybe what I can add are some little details. You can be picked up and dropped off wherever you like. If you need a bathroom break it is whatever you desire. There is no rush and you spend the amount of time at different areas to your preference. Somehow we covered the whole town in 4 hours with plenty of stops for pictures, etc. Plus, you learn a lot of details about the city.

Thank truly

If you want to see & experience San Francisco in the best way possible you have to use Silver Lion Tours. We have literally just returned from a 6 hour tour with Holger & couldn't wait to write this review. Holger gave us a 5 star experience & a tour that catered to all our interests & kept us entertained all day. We have gone on many private day tours all over the world but can honestly say that Silver Lion Tours have outdone them all. If we could rate them higher we would. Thanks Holger for showing us San Francisco, we had a great day.

We were in San Fran 5th May and orgasised this 4 hr tour with Holger. We were on a cruise ship and we are Aussies so wanted to see as much as possible. We had Danillo come and get us at the ship and they had even hired a smaller car for us as i am a bit disabled and would have had touble getting in and out of the mini van. We had the best time nothing was too much trouble and we even had our photo taken with him. He took us to all of the sights and more and explained everthing to us. We would highly reccomend this company so professional and also so friendly. And Dan the Clam Chowder at Boudins was amazing thanks for the heads up on that. We fellt so comfortable with this trip that we would dearly love to return to San Fransisco we think we left our heart there and mainly due to the way we were treated by Danillo. Thanks again you made our trip.Elaine & Ken Livingstone Sydney Australia
