Navigate the city with your own private guide
See the beautiful City by the Bay in the comfort of a private car with a tour guide as your driver. Join me as I take you to some of the most famous destinations in San Francisco and share a few of the lesser known ones.
See the charming Victorian Homes called the "Painted Ladies" at Alamo Square. Hear the clang of the cable cars as they climb our city streets. Taste your own sample of Ghiradelli chocolate from the former factory. Smell delicious sourdough bread baking at Boudin on Fisherman's Wharf. And touch the cool steel of the cable of the Golden Gate Bridge.
CUSTOMIZE: I can create a customized tour for you in case you have special requests or if you want more hours included in the tour
A sample tour will begin at your hotel or at your cruise ship. . We will start with the 3 most popular destinations in San Francisco: Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge. You can add or subtract destinations depending on the time, and your preferences.
If you have never been to San Francisco, I recommend that you view the bay from the heights of Twin Peaks, weather permitting.

Sharon was fantastic, plenty of local knowledge of San Francisco and very accommodating. It was my sisters special birthday, she provided balloons and champagne which she collected in her own time, thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend Sharon as a guide, for this reason I would also use Tours by Locals again. Once again Thankyou Sharon, brilliant day
