A Bay Area experience. A personalised private tour of San Francisco and Sausalito.

See San Francisco and enjoy the sights of this wonderful city before heading across the Golden Gate Bridge to . . . . discover the 'gem of the bay'. Sausalito is a small seaside town. It is very reminiscent of the towns of northern Italy or southern France. Homes scattered over the hillsides have views across the Bay to the city of San Francisco.

The town itself is a live with coffee shops, eateries, boutiques and art galleries.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was the first "tours by locals" that I have ever booked, hesitatingly, and now I guess I can be a champion of sorts for their service. Right from the word go, Anthony was quite communicative and also very frank and forthcoming on what is possible and what is not. It was clear that he did not go after my business by doling out false promises and assurances and wanted me to be clear on what to expect. Our family of 10 persons had a great time with him in San Francisco. Highly recommended!!
