Tour: 4 1/2 hour private tour - Muir Woods, Mill Valley, and Sausalito - fun tour in a luxury sedan, San Francisco, California, United States
Date: Mar 15/20

We took a Muir Woods and Sausalito tour with Thomas at the beginning of the coronavirus shutdown (3/15/20). He arrived on time for pickup in comfortable transportation and even brought umbrellas for my family. He also made great efforts to educate us on the history of different SF landmarks and take us to some amazing spots for viewing the city. Overall, it was a great trip and I would highly recommended Thomas. Thanks, Kent Shuler

Tour: #278726, Yosemite Private SUV Tour from San Francisco, San Francisco, California, United States    view tour
Date: Jun 18/19

Thomas' knowledge of Yosemite and willingness to customize any particular sights within the park made this a worthwhile day and one we probably could not have undertaken on our own. It's a long trip and long day, but met and exceeded our expectations.

Thomas organised a fantastic day for us visiting key sites in San Fran before heading out to wineries for the day. The day included a special stop on the Golden Gate Bridge to see it from a different perspective which was fantastic. Thomas knew all the great wineries to go to and really listened to what we were wanting to get out of the day and went the extra mile to ensure our short time in San Francisco was maximised. I would highly recommend Thomas to anyone wanting a great experience.

Thomas gave us an amazing afternoon. Very good suggestions on how to meet with little fuss to us and then dropped us off at a restaurant near our car. We saw many things we would have never seen. His car was clean and comfortable, he is an excellent driver and good story teller. We had to move the starting time due to our schedule and he was wonderful at adjusting. We saw the city in many lights and it was wonderful!

With only a short window of time to explore San Francisco, Thomas' tour was perfect for a first timer hoping to see as much as possible. He timed the tour perfectly to get us to the right sites before the crowds, and when the light was best for photos. Touring with him rather than in a big bus got us to places in the city that buses weren't allowed to go - and it was wonderful being able to chat with him and get a local's perspective on the city. Thanks for a fun and full day, Thomas!

Thomas gave us an incredible tour of San Francisco! He was prompt, friendly, extremely knowledge, relaxed, fun, went with the flow, and tailored the trip perfectly for my family/kids. Thomas was well spoken and seemed to know EVERYTHING about San Francisco. He was extremely professional. I felt like he took us through every neighborhood in San Francisco so when we were finished, we truly felt as if we knew the city! Thank you. Erica

We booked Thomas for a 4 hour private tour of San Francisco for our family of 5. He hit all of the "tourist highlights" as well as some hidden gems that only a local would know. He was very knowledgeable about his city and offered great commentary about what's it like to really live in SF. He was patient and engaging with our whole family. We've used ToursByLocals around the world, and never been disappointed!

Thomas did a great job! He was very knowledgeable and we had a wonderful day! He gave us numerous tremendous views of the city and Golden Gate bridge, and we were able to spend exactly as much time as we wanted/needed at every stop. His vehicle was also clean and comfortable for our large group (6 adults plus him). This was definitely the way to see the city! Thanks Thomas!

Thomas went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and ensure we had an amazing experience that was customized to our interests. He is very knowledgable on a vast range of information about San Francisco. Pretty much anywhere you go, he can tell you all about the area, no matter where it is. He created a route right there on the spot that gave us all sorts of interesting things to see and learn on our way to Muir Woods. Same thing for the way back. Thomas was perfect, everything a tour guide should be!

Thomas was a very good tour guide. There were 6 of us and his vehicle was comfortable and roomy enough for all. He made several stops during our day trip to Monterey, Carmel and Pebble Beach. We saw sea otters at Moss Landing, the lone cypress, but skipped going into the Monterey Aquarium and regret it but there just wasn't time. An afternoon cocktail out on the patio overlooking the 18th green at PB was so enjoyable, whether you are a golfer or not. I would use Tours by Locals again.

As a ToursbyLocals staff member, I am just "proud" to have Thomas in our team! He showed us the very best of San Francisco, combined with a visit to Muir Forest and a wine-tasting in Napa! His first-hand knowledge of San Francisco, combined with his passion for travelling and his professionalism made this a memorable day! He also went the extra mile by showing us a vievpoint with incredible views of the Golden Gate Bridge! Highly recommend!
