Such an interesting deep dive into the Castro and Mission neighborhoods, for which we had an incredibly sunny warm summer day. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, having grown up in the area, and pointed out not only historical places, but beautiful murals, homes and fun nooks and crannies (like hidden stairways to streets) that we never would have seen on our own. We definitely came away with much more of an appreciation for Castro and the Mission (love Dolores Park!) and will seek out other neighborhoods on our next trip!
I had the most amazing time, as a solo traveller doing a small group tour is perfect. My tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us lots of fun facts along the way and the whole experience was very interesting. Bring your walking shoes we started at 10 am and finished at 6 pm, I highly recommend you do this tour. We went to places tourist didn’t go.
My Boyfriend and I booked an all Day SF tour with Christofer and had an amazing time! He knew a ton of history which we loved and we were able to see a ton. We loved it as it had been our first time visiting. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to be shown around the city.
Did a wonderful tour with these guys while I was in San Francisco on business. I’d also done a tour with the sister company in Los Angeles several years ago. Kevin, who was the guide, was great and it was so nice to be outside. We learnt tons about SF. Definitely recommended!
Our guide Damien was so very knowledgeable about the area and history of SF. We experienced different methods of transport (avoiding those big hills!) and areas we would not otherwise have known about.
Damien was the best! Friendly & very informative. He took into consideration our interests & made it very enjoyable. Great exercise- best way to see SF. Liked Haight Ashbury the most.
We had a two day layover in San Francisco, so we wanted to make the most of our time there. It’s always been somewhere we wanted to visit and on this tour we got to all the places we most dreamed of going – downtown, Nob hill, Castro, Haight Ashbury, painted ladies, Lombard St, North beach and Chinatown. It was only a small group and the guide was amazing. It wasn’t tiring at all and we had a great time jumping from trains to buses to cable cars. AWESOME DAY!!!
We're honored when people want to give the present of tickets to our tours to someone they know. Buying a gift certificate is an important expression of support for a small business like ours and we're very appreciative of the level of trust that purchasers have in us. Trust that we are going to deliver on the promise of a tour - and that we'll make that tour an unforgettable experience for the person they love.
It also means that they must really know that person to whom they're giving the gift and in what they're truly interested. So anyone getting the present of one of our gift certificates will surely be deeply appreciative that you've really give their present a lot of thought. And you can be sure that they will really enjoy their experience with us.
To get a gift certificate you can EITHER buy tickets for a regular group tour OR book a private tour.
Regular group tour: all you need to do is book a minimum of two tickets for a tour you think that special person would want to go on - if they only knew about us - and write in the field "anything else we need to know", at the bottom of the booking form, "Gift Certificate" and the full name of the person. Then we'll email you back with a git certificate pdf in their name and you give it to them at the appropriate time.
Private tour: all you need to do is book a private tour for the experience that you think they would be interested in and then write in the field "anything else we need to know", which appears right before paying, "Gift Certificate" and the full name of the person. Then we'll email you back with a git certificate pdf in their name and you can forward it to them.
There's a 30 day period when you can get a full refund (unless they've already done the tour of course), after which they can still book or reschedule. Assuming they want to do a tour then they just email us with the date of the scheduled tour that they want to attend OR email us with the date when they want to do a private tour. At that point we just create a regular booking for them.
It's that simple!
Thanks for wanting to give this gift.
