I can’t say enough about how great this tour was! We had Chad for our tour guide and he was amazing! He was funny, easy going, and professional. His energy was contagious and made for such a comfortable, fun, relaxed ride. This was our first time to SF, so we wanted to be able to take in as many sites as we could without all the stress of going place to place ourselves. Chad took us around the city in a way only a local could, it felt like you had a friend bringing you to all the best spots for photo opportunities with endless insider knowledge on restaurants and fun things to do. We could not have been happier with this tour!!

What a SUPER fun tour -- even for locals! My parents bought my husband (VDub lover) this tour in a bus for his Bday. We grew up in the Bay Area and don't really need a "tour" of the city, BUT it was fun, engaging, and we learned about so many things we didn't know from the Golden Gate to Tank Hill to Painted Ladies, through the Presidio. Sound track of fun music included What a great way to spend 3 hours on a Sat -- well done, Vangito!

Eliza was a wonderful tour guide! I booked this tour for my family of six and really enjoyed it. The route was perfect, the amount of time we stopped was brief but effective, and Eliza provided a nice balance of information and quiet time with a great playlist to keep us entertained during the drive. I would highly recommend this experience if you're looking for a small group tour of the city.

Great tour - our guide was funny and very knowledgeable! We were never rushed. It was so much more personal than a big bus tour. I lived in the area 20 years and still learned new things on this tour! A+++++++

The VW van tour was a blast. Micah was a fantastic driver/guide. He was funny, engaging, and very informative with lots of interesting facts and tips for food and fun. The tour itself hits all of the highlights of the city and includes beautiful views of the city, Golden Gate, and the water. What better way is there to cruise through Haight-Ashbury but in an old VW van?

We decided to go on this tour the first morning of our trip and it was wonderful! We got the lay of the land and knew exactly what to do and where to go for the rest of our trip! Very informative and super fun!

Be prepared to see a lot of smiles as the brightly colored VW van winds its way through San Francisco. This is a great way to see the best sights in San Francisco, with some amazing views you didn't expect. Eliza was a wonderful guide and I highly recommend this tour.
