Anthony F.

Kentfield, California, United States

Planning a trip to San Francisco? You are going to have a wonderful time and thank you so much for considering me as your guide.

I am currently enjoying my work as a professional guide for three of the top tour companies here in San Francisco. I have furnished them all with nearly 400 5 Star reviews.
It goes without saying that this is a job I enjoy that even on my day's off I want to show people the Bay area. Rather than take a bus of over 30 people I would much prefer to take a small group on a more personalized tour. That is why I am here on TBL.

Let me show you around. I will show you the sights and share the secrets of the city I call home.
I have spent a lot of my time travelling the world including Asia, Europe and Africa. Home at one time or another has been England, Denmark and Spain before finally settling here in what I believe is the perfect place. . . San Francisco, my true home.

Before becoming a full time Tour Guide I worked as a ship's Cruise Director, DJ, Actor, TV Presenter, Radio Host, News Anchor, Columnist, VJ and I had even trodden the boards on London's West End

Over the past 5 years I have taken hundreds of people on these tours. I really enjoy them. Every tour excites me still as though it were my first day of discovery in San Francisco.

The tours I offer can introduce you to the city of San Francisco, the mighty Redwood Trees and Wine Country.

Be prepared to leave your heart in San Francisco.

Here are a couple of reviews from those who have gone before you . .

1) - 5 STARS
Anthony. He is British and has that great dry humor. Although he had the tour van roaring with laughter with his one liners, Anthony also is a wealth of knowledge. His timing is impeccable, as he knows exactly when to discuss each point (I don't want to ruin it and tell you any details- much better to experience it yourself!).

2) 5 STARS
Anthony was a safe driver and I learned a ton while having fun. Isn't that what a great tour is all about?

Hundreds more are available on request. I look forward to making your stay magical and memorable.

A Recent Review of this guide

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!!
