Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour begins at Fisherman's Wharf, where you meet your local guide and board your minibus. Over the course of the day, you get a look at the city's diverse neighborhoods and geography, stopping at several locations to take beautiful photos and learn about the history of the city and current events through the eyes of a local.

You will travel through North Beach, also known as Little Italy, where sidewalk cafes line busy streets. You will get to see the markets and souvenir shops of Chinatown; visit the art and landmarks where the Summer of Love began in the Haight-Ashbury; see the 'Painted Ladies' victorians, known for their appearance in the 'Full House' intro; and get a glimpse of Pacific Heights, one of the city's most affluent neighborhoods where large homes have excellent views of San Francisco Bay (the house from 'Mrs. Doubtfire' is also here), among others.

The adventure then continues across the Golden Gate Bridge to the picturesque enclave of Sausalito for a lunch break, before heading to Muir Woods National Monument, where you have an hour to stroll through the majestic forest of ancient redwood trees.

Your tour ends with return to your starting point at Fisherman's Wharf.

The pick-up location was easy to find and “Sully”, the driver introduced himself. Sully did a great job combining information about SF with interesting stories & history ranging from pre-colonial history to the summer of love including the development of the LGBQ community. His helpful info regarding lunch was great. His musical playlist captured the diversity of musicians who recorded here. Muir Woods was unbelievable!! I highly recommend this tour

This was a great tour to get an overview of the entire city. Sully was an awesome guide and shared so many interesting facts & stories. At the first Golden Gate Bridge viewing area the fog rolled in and within seconds the bridge disappeared! I was disappointed to not get a photo…but by the time we crossed the bridge, the fog cleared & Sully was nice enough to pull over again. I really appreciated that. The Redwood trees were the highlight! Such a beautiful area, the smell of the trees was so refreshing…I’ll never forget that. We had plenty of time to explore the woods & look around the gift shop. I highly recommend this tour!

after the trip I can say I wish we would have stopped at a few More places but only because I have to go back to see them up closer ;) …. Our driver (sean sully) was great and very informative. The music history of San Fran is fantastic and I had no idea what an important city it was for music.
