privately tour san francisco

Privately tour San Francisco with a welcoming Californian host.

What’s the best way to explore the vibrant, historic city of San Francisco? You could rent a car and meander around, stopping at places that interest you, a viable option if you have days or weeks to explore and have enough knowledge to stay away from dangerous areas. Or you could sign up for a walking, biking, bus tour or private San Francisco tour. Walking or biking, you’ll get lots of exercise, though you won’t travel as far or see as many sights as would in a vehicle.

That leaves a bus tour or a private San Francisco tour. Bus tours accommodate as many people as possible and typically visit the famous landmarks—the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, Lombard Street, etc. Maybe the bus will stop in Chinatown or the Presidio. Now picture enjoying those places riding in a luxury Mercedes GL 450, with just one or two companions of your choice. Your private guide knows not just the history of San Francisco’s Chinatown, the oldest Chinatown in the U.S., established in 1848, but also the restaurants the locals patronize for the best dim sum, mooncake and fortune cookies.

Your top-end Mercedes, with an expert private guide at the wheel, can maneuver in and out of streets and parking lots better than a bus, and the guide knows how to shift to plan B if streets are too crowded or lines are too long. Are you interested in shopping? Your bus guide cannot alter the tour to suit one or two passengers. Let us know your particular interests ahead of time—restaurants, shops, architecture, history, art, neighborhoods? We will customize your private San Francisco tour to ensure your enjoyment.

Our goal is not just to wow you with the wondrous sights to see in the City by the Bay. We want you to love the city as we do and gain the insight and confidence to tour on your own on your next visit. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll leave your heart in San Francisco.
