It's not easy to WOW a 13 year old teen boy and his mom at the same time but Gary did just that, surprising us every step of the way with great stops and a wealth of knowledge. Gary is a bay area pro and his passion about this area is palpable from the get go. He even gave us advice before meeting us, sharing his favorite San Fran food and drink spots. I would highly recommend Gary's tour to anyone seeking a great bay area experience!

The tour was very satisfactory. Gary was on time and very courteous. It was very important that we took his recommendation to take the 8 am tour so we avoided the large crowd. Taking the private tour saved significant amount of time and also Gary took us some spots on our way back which were incredibly beautiful. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jun. it was a pleasure to meet you and Min. I hope you enjoyed the rest of the day. Bon voyage Gary

Muir Woods but so much more. Great afternoon with Gary on a perfect San Francisco day. Gary was the perfect guide for our group of two couples. Fun and energetic with the perfect amount of knowledge and suggestions for our group. Make him take you to Tommy's! the perfect way to end the tour.

Gary was very informative and friendly. All 4 of us enjoyed the tour and saw parts of San Francisco we didn't see with the hope on hop off bus the week before. Muir Woods was a nice finale of our stay in California.

Highly recommend Tours By Locals. Gary was kind, welcoming and we quickly became friends. His knowledge and appreciation of the area was obvious. We had our 15 year old granddaughter with us and he included her in our conversations. He took us to places in the area that we would have never knew existed. It was a time we will always remember. Thanks, Gary.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jane & Gene ! I'm glad everyone enjoyed the tour. I'm a lucky guy - I get to meet the best people in the world ! Best regards, Gary

Gary was the perfect guide for our family group. Muir Woods was our goal for this tour, but he showed us so much more and with great enthusiasm. His knowledge of history, science and local lore completed the perfect tour. We look forward to another tour with him on a return trip.

He was a FANTASTIC tour guide. We knew we wanted to see Muir Woods, but weren't really sure of what else to do with our time and he knew exactly what to show us. We couldn't of been happier, I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a great tour guide.

My husband & I had a delightful day with Gary! Muir woods is ABSOLUTELY breathtaking... and we sincerely appreciated the tranquil peace of the early morning before the rush of people got there. Gary was especially accommodating with taking us to see the Golden Gate Bridge (from the best view!) and then even swinging by the Full House house on the spur of the moment. He had great recommendations of places to eat & things to do with the rest of our time in SF. We're excited to return, we didn't get enough!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kristie, I'm so glad that you and Ka'imi enjoyed the tour. Thank you so much for the glowing review ! I really appreciate it ! I hope our paths cross again sometime. Best regards, Gary

Gary is a wonderful storyteller. He took us to some secret spots to see the city skyline and iconic Golden Gate Bridge. He is very knowledgeable. We especially enjoy the aromatic herbs and leaves that he showed us along the way. He is a photographer, so he was able to capture beautiful photos of our family just us8ng our iPod or iPhone. He has a very clean and roomy vehicle. He knows how to navigate away from traffic and was able to cover so much in 4 hours. I highly recommend his yours!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure Leelyn. I get to meet the best people in the world and show them my favorite places. Bon Voyage to you all ~

We particularly enjoyed our visit to the Marine Mammal Center -- an unexpected and fascinating feature of our tour.

Great tour guide. Saw a lot of sights we would have missed and he went the extra mile. Listen to his advice on going to the Muir Woods early. No entrance fee and no crowds. Book this guy now as he is really busy.

We liked Gary so much we book him for a second tour on our trip. This tour was magnificent. Gary took us very early to Muir Woods when no one else was there. It was so peaceful! Then the views of Mount Tamalpais were breathtaking! Completed the trip with a visit to the famous Tommy's Mexican Restaurant where Julio the owner and world renowned tequila connoisseur delight us with his insights on the history and making of the famous drink! Grady our bartender was fantastic!

Gary was fabulous! We learned so much in the time we spent with him; It was amazing...he is a walking encyclopedia! He recommended we meet early which turned out great because it was quiet and we could enjoy Muir woods in tranquility. By the time we were finished, the crowds had arrived and it would have not been as enriching. We had time for the mammal rescue as well which was a bonus. Again, Gary had so much information to share. We will definitely book him for another tour when we return to San Fran.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Chris, It was a treat to escort you and Bob to some of the Bay Area's most scenic places. I hope our paths crss again sometime. Best regards, Gary
