Therefore, tours involving a visit to the park, I will not be able to guide you while in the park, you will walk through the park on your own. I can point out areas of interest before hand on the way to the park."

Exceptional Service. We missed our flight so we were a few hours late for our tour appt. Eric graciously accommodated and made every effort for our family to see the complete tour. This was the best idea to start our visit to San Francisco. Eric also kept our teenage and pre-teenage children engaged. Highly recommend Eric for everyone.
