Joe was fantastic. He was flexible, engaging and a lot of fun. We saw everything we wanted in 3 hours and a lot of things off the beaten path.

Joe was super friendly, on-time & full of knowledge of the city/area! On this expedition, he drove us through areas we never would have seen on a bus tour or even on our own if we rented a vehicle - simply because we're not "local" to know! It was fun to drive down Lombard Street (kids really enjoyed that)! As a matter of fact, our dinner topic last night was to name the Top 3 fav's of this trip...my 9 year old picked "Driving the City with Joe" as one of his top three! It was great family fun!

Joe was prompt, friendly & was able to share his knowledge & expertise of the area with us. He drove us through the beautiful area of Seaside & allowed us to discover a quaint little Inn along the way. He also took us to Muir Beach Overlook for spectacular views of the mountains & water which we didn't even know existed! We enjoyed our walk through Muir Woods & Sausalito greatly and chose to take a Ferry back to Fishermans Wharf. As a family, we had a wonderful experience!

Joseph was the BEST! He tailored our San Francisco tour to meet our requests. Our guests from Indiana could even put their hands into the Pacific Ocean. Joseph was humorous and informed and an excellent driver.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Leona, It was my pleasure to share our beautiful city with you and your guests!

Excellent tour! Joseph was kind and his knowledge of San Francisco was impressive! He kept the attention of my two young daughters as they learned about the city and it's many historical places. He was very flexible and made our tour enjoyable. If you're looking for a tour with a guide who will go the extra mile to create great memories, book Joseph!

If you are looking for a 5 star San Francisco city tour, Joseph C is your man. Professionalism is his middle name. We could not have asked for a better experience or a better guide. Style & class makes it a top rated tour. Do not hesitate to ask for Joseph C.

Joe C.guided a low activity tour of San Francisco for my parents and I. He asked about our interests (good photos,scenery, famous sites) and gave us a fantastic tour. One stop was Treasure Island-my stepmother had been at he 1939 World's Fair there. Joe knows all the great photo ops spots,when he learned my dad was a Marine in WWII,he took us to the very beautiful downtown Marine museum. My parents told everyone we met about this wonderful tour for days-it was the highlight of our trip. Wine was great.

We thoroughly enjoyed our "most excellent adventure" with Joe seeing Muir Woods, San Francisco and Monterey/Carmel. Joe was punctual, organized and took particular care and pleasure in making sure we saw and learned about everything on our wish list. In addition, he was very intuitive and surprised us with other fun and interesting stops he knew we would enjoy. Joe is a wealth of knowledge about the area and kept us laughing with his stories. Thanks, Joe! The Memphis gals: Bess, Bonnie, Carolyn and Donna

Because my daughter is in a wheel chair, we were unable to use the typical sightseeing tours on the buses. So I booked a private tour using a Van. It turned out to be one of the best tours I've ever experienced. I highly recommend it and I highly recommend booking Joseph as your tour guide. You will visit places the buses don't go to!

The Personal City Experience with Joe was a fantastic tour. Not only did he take us to places we had requested, but also a few other places that we had not thought of. We very much appreciated his sense of humor and his insight into the city. He made us feel very comfortable and at ease from the minute we started our tour. The next time we are in San Francisco - we will definitely be booking another tour with Joe! Thanks again!!!!

Joe gave us an excellent day in the Napa and Sonoma valley vineyards. All 6 of us enjoyed our day. Joe arrived exactly as arranged, and his vehicle easily carried my wheelchair. Joe was always attentive to my needs. The restaurant that Joe recommended was also wonderful. It was a disappointment that we ran out of time and were unable to visit a third vineyard as planned, but Joe kept me informed on our progress. This was mainly because we took too long, enjoying ourselves, at the vineyards visited.

We gave Joseph a challenge to show us the important places in San Fran. He did and showed us areas and places not on tour routes. Having lived in the area many years you truly has LOCAL knowledge. Nicely done.

Was great meeting Joseph, He also showed us places like de chinese cooky fabric, Fairmont Hotel etc. Joseph I hope your Cabaret on Saturday was a success, we thought of you a lot. One recommendation to Joseph, if you pick up people have a nameplate in your car at the window so people know where to look. Once again Joseph, thank you for the tour. Catharina and Dieter Lebram

My 13-yr old daughter and I booked the tour just a day before we traveled to San Francisco. Our friend who lived there cancelled us at the last minute. The booking was quick and easy. We enjoyed the tour very much with just a day trip that we had. We got to see so many places. Joe was very good, professional and friendly. It was one of our memorable visits for our travels.
