Includes a visit to across The Golden Gate Bridge and Muir Woods National Park

Explore the most beautiful and exotic destinations in San Francisco! Much more than a traditional tour, I will take you to unique places you won't find anywhere else.

Having grown up and spent most my life here, I am uniquely qualified to share my intimate knowledge of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, in a comfortable fully equipped 7-passenger 2014 SUV.

City highlights include The Palace of Fine Arts, a drive down the windiest street in the world on Lombard St, and a visit to the "Painted Ladies" Victorian style houses, a tour through Golden Gate Park, and a visit across the Golden Gate Bridge and Muir Woods.

Any part of the tour can be personally customized. Tell me your interests and I will help to create the perfect adventure!


Full highlights of San Francisco including: Palace of Fine Arts, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard Street, Twin Peaks, The Marina District, Ocean Beach, and Golden Gate Park. Lunch at restaurant of your choice. Any part of the itinerary may be customized to your favorite interests.
