Tyler, our guide, was great! His personality and knowledge of the city made the tour seem like it flew by. Traveling in the bus with the music was an experience we will never forget. Thanks Tyler!!

We really enjoyed our evening Love Tour with Doug during our stay in SF. We covered streets and areas that a large bus would have been unable to drive along and Doug kept us entertained with stories and music from our era. Would definitely recommend this fun tour in our VW. The only thing I would suggest that a microphone for the driver would help those in the rear seats to hear all being said as the VW engine can be quite noisy going uphill.

Wow! What a fun night tour! Our guide “Doug” was fantastic. We were able to see and go so many places that a regular tour bus could not. Fabulous views and so entertaining! Peace out. Go Van Go!

Kind of a bummer. This was the tour I was looking forward to the most and it was the most disappointing. The description stated photo ops at the golden gate bridge, but we went nowhere near there. There was really no point in having the hippie bus because it just felt like an ordinary tour. The description is VERY misleading.

The evening was cool but the trip around SF was fantastic. We've been to SF many times but usually for work. This evening was very informative and enjoyable. We had the town to ourselves. From the GG Bridge to the Bay Bridge. The skyline was beautiful. We definitely would recommend this tour. Thank you

This was a great tour with a really friendly and informative guide. Good to see all of San Francisco and work out which parts we definitely wanted to return to. Driving through San Francisco in a VW camper is an experience not to be missed.

This tour was not what we expected. The tour guide was wonderful and informative but we thought it was a tour about the art and music history of San Fransisco. We also thought we were going to some of the hippie areas. It definitely was pretty at night vs the day.

This was such a fun and informative tour! Do something like the Love Tour to make your trip special. Jason, our guide, was so kind and fun and he gave us great stories about the places we saw. The Polaroid pic he took of us is wonderful snd will go on my fridge as a fun momento!

We went on a few excursions and this one was our least favorite. We could have easily done without it. While it gave us a quick overview of some of the highlights of San Fran, there was nothing special about it. The vehicle was uncomfortable and the ride was not at all smooth. The driver did his best to play appropriate music and talk about the places we were seeing but, it just wasn't anything special.
