Gary really gave us a great tour! We'd been to SanFrancisco many times so I'm sure it was a challenge for him to show us great places not on the traditional tourist paths.. but he came through in flying colors! Thanks Gary! Tommy's Mexican restaurant was a great finale!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda. Great to meet you and Sabrina. Hope you're having a great time "up the road". Salt Point or Bust, yah ? Bon Voyage, Gary

We really loved our tour with Gary. He is funny and knowledgeable. And as a tourguide myself with a 10 year experiance I can verify that he is top notch. My only regret is that we only reserved a four hour tour. If we ever come back we will definatly do a tour with him again.

Gary gave me a brilliant tour of SAN Francisco. He is a very friendly and knowledgeable character making the whole tour an extremely enjoyable event. It was a very comprehensive tour and some places would gave been impossible to access without a car, e.g high views of Golden Gate Bridge, Sea LIon Rescue Centre etc. Tour of Presidio and Seacliff was good. An excellent tour. Definitely do it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Colin Thank you for the generous review ! It was great to show you around my favorite places. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time here. Best regards Gary

Gary is a truly amazing tour guide. Very professional, yet down to earth, friendly and totally entertaining. My family of four only had one day to enjoy San Francisco. We received a comprehensive and very informative tour. Thank you Gary for a truly exceptional experience. We ranged in age from eighteen to seventy and we all loved him.

This was a great tour, unbelievably easy to book and our tour guide Gary was just perfect. He arrived on time, was very courteous, his car was clean and roomy. Gary's knowledge of all things San Francisco was more than impressive, he is so well read that his education, homor, folklore and fun facts made tour extremely interesting and ever so enjoyable. He offered to take photos of us at all the great places made our visit memorable. This is a wonderful service for Bay Area hospitality.

If we could give Gary a 10 star rating, we would. He picked us up at our hotel and started the day off with a pleasant, warm, welcoming smile. He showed us all the major highlights of San Francisco in the ensuing 4 hours we had with him. He was very knowledgeable about the city, its history and told many interesting stories. He gave us good advice about where else to go outside of the city the following day. Traveling around with Gary was like traveling with your best friend!!! We love you Gary!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sherri, Thank you for the generous tour review. I really appreciate it ! What to say to Dr. Levy : "I came here to hear film reviews and all you've talked about is dermatology". He will crack up and know in a nano-second why you're saying that. Hello to Bill and your crew - By the way, it was an unprecedented 106 degrees here yesterday ! Gary

Had a great time with Gary. Very informative yet in a fun way. Took us to the popular spots as well as some less known spots which we really loved. We had our 2 children with us as well and he did a great job getting them involved as well throughout the day. Was kind enough to tell us about local restaurants and even dropped us off in Little Italy when the tour was done to save us time and money getting there. We definitely would recommend Gary to any!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Keith. It was fun showing you around. Come back for a month sometime ? :) Gary

Gary gave us a fabulous 4 hour tour of the city of San Francisco and provided so much history and information!! Even drove us over the Golden Gate Bridge for picture taking on the other side. He was totally flexible when I asked (ahead of time) for extra time at the Japanese Tea Garden and to drop us at the end of the tour at the Ferry Building. My mom uses a walker, and he was wonderful about taking it in & out of his van when asked. We thoroughly enjoyed his insight and humor! Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Karyn, Thanks for the reviews. You are a sweetheart ! Please say hello to "the crew" for me ? Happy Holidays - Gary
