    You see so much of SF in this 3.5 hour trip, and get to take some cool pictures at great locations. It's a pleasure to see the city with Chad, who's so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Take this tour on your first day or two in San Francisco, and you'll get a better idea of where you want to spend time during the remainder of your trip.

    Had a great time with Chad on this tour as we were truly able to go places that a regular coach bus cannot. Due to the size of the van, there are only 7 people allowed on the tour but it was great to see sights such as going through Golden Gate Park and being below the Golden Gate Bridge. During the drive, we were given the complete history of San Francisco and a lot of knowledge of the places we were passing by along with photos and audio to enhance the experience. We were also given more than enough time at each of the stops to take pictures and Chad would even take photos for us. This was my first and overall favorite tour I did in San Francisco. Would highly recommend!

    Our driver was very knowledgeable and had a great presentation. He was very engaged and had fun side facts as well. The trip was more detailed than I thought and I saw things I had not seen on previous visits. It was a great trip. Highly recommended.

    Best City Tour!!

    We took a tour with Vantivo (purchase through Viator)which offered a 3.5 hour tour in an awesome 1971 VW Van. With a small group of only 6 people, this was super fun and totally interactive. This guy, Chad who took us all around San Francisco, knew what he was talking about and was super passionate about his job. We found out there was a reason why and that is because he owns this company! It’s just him and his wife and he has three vans to do tours around the city. he took all of the great pictures of Kenneth and I which alone was so nice. He knew just where to take the best pictures! Great tour! Great guide! Worth it and highly recommended you also take this tour if you are wanting to check out San Francisco 😍😍
