Our group of 5 had Gary as our tour guide, and we all really enjoyed the day. Gary is very knowledgeable about San Francisco and the surrounding areas. We were able to conform the tour to our time and interests, staid as long as we wanted or moved on. Gary is very personable and interesting, and we highly recommend hiring him as a tour guide.

Gary arrived promptly having agreed an extensive itinerary with us by email over the previous days. His knowledge of the city and the surrounding areas enabled us to see a wide variety of attractions while he provided a thorough commentary on all the standard sites and many non standard sites that we would have not discovered without him. An enjoyable tour we are very glad to have taken.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David, That was a fun time we had. C'mon back sometime? We've barely scratched the surface. Best regards, Gary

The tour was great and Gary made us feel like family...I have been on many a private tour but, none of the guides were as good as Gary...many thanks and see you next time we are in SF, Jon and Terri
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jon and Terri, It was a lot of fun showing you both around. Nothing like "chewin' the fat" with a couple of Texans about bbq and ancient Houston history . . . Happy Trails ! Gary
Thomas WetzelUnited States
Gary was a guide with an excellent breadth of knowledge about the area. My partner and I had visited SF several times before however as we toured with family (who had never visited the city before) we also had many pleasant surprises.
Out of 5 weeks in America, This day with Gary was the best. He showed us the real and popular sites of a city he truly loves. He was accommodating in every request we made.I would recommend this tour without a moment's hesitation. Amy
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Amy, It was MY pleasure and I'm glad you all enjoyed it. Come on back, there's more to show you - Gary
Gary - what a star! He was brilliant. So knowledgeable & passionate about San Francisco we had an awesome day!! He was prompt. Had a clean car that was extremely spacious and an attitude that is worthy of a GOLD medal. He was relaxed, friendly, approachable, chatty and very very knowledgeable about the area, the history and local trivia. To top it all off he is a commercial photographer & we have some fabulous pictures of our trip around San Francisco. We took the half day city & Marin county tour.
