Rick was a awesome guide who had great knowledge of the San Francisco area. Took us to areas we wanted to see but included places that most travelers would not know of. The family especially enjoyed Twin Peaks. He was very good with our two young grandkids and included them in the tour. He was very organized and punctual, and his vehicle was immaculate. If you want a informative and entertaining tour book Rick.

Rick gave our family of six an absolutely wonderful tour of San Francisco, Sausalito and the Muir Woods. The tour was not only a lot of fun, it was also very educational due to Rick's impressive knowledge of SF and the Bay Area. Our four kids (ages 10, 8, 6, and 4) loved seeing all of the sights and learned so much at the same time. The tour was the highlight of our trip. We are so glad we booked the tour and had Rick as our tour guide. We recommend him without reservation. Chris C.

I had not spent time in San Francisco and was eager to learn about the city. I contacted Rick and he was flexible and accommodating in working out the details of a tour. The tour was highly informative, fact filled, fun and the best 3-1/2 hours I've ever spent as a tourist. Apart from being a professional guide, Rick is friendly, easy going and a really nice person with whom to spend a day. I would encourage anyone interested in learning about San Francisco to take advantage of Rick's expertise.

We had an excellent day out with Rick who, after several email conversations, made a couple of very good suggestions for wine tasting in the Napa/Sonoma valley region. We felt that we were in good hands from pick up to drop off, and for any discerning traveller, this has to be one of the best ways to spend a day. It was also very nice to have a choice on where to have lunch and not feel rushed or pressured at any time. Thanks Rick, for a great day out! Happy Thanksgiving!

What a wonderful, awesome morning spent with Rick, touring and learning all about San Francisco. Just fantastic. I did the 3.5 hour tour of the city for first timers. He had the agenda perfectly timed and planned. I got to see so much and stop for photos whenever I wished. Rick had an excellent knowledge of the City's history, and could answer any question that arose. Excellent guide, I would most certainly recommend him and would use him again when I'm in the area.

East coasters decided to have a girls weekend in San Francisco visiting my daughter, myself, mom, sister and sister-in-law. Rick met us in the lobby of our hotel and toured us in his spotless minivan. He immediately offered us water and said if we need breaks or bathroom stops, do not hesitate to ask. Comforting to know since we were traveling with my mom. I was amazed at how detailed and knowledgeable he was about the city, down to dates and details of specific sites. I would definitely use him again!

Rick is highly knowledgeable, personable, and will tailor the itinerary according to the interests of the clients. In our case, we had no particular itinerary in mind, so Rick went with his own plan.

A GREAT tour of an amazing city. Rick took us to places where buses and large vans have been banned so we were able to get a unique view of several neighborhoods. He filled us in on local facts and brought the city alive sharing its history and current events. We asked him to avoid busy tourist spots and he created a tour that was just what we needed to truly enjoy San Francisco. It's great not to have to deal with a car rental, traffic, or parking! Don't just read a guide, take a tour with Rick!

Rick was GREAT! We had a fantastic tour of the city. He took us to many of the legendary places and a few spots that are fascinating, but otherwise unknown to a tourist. We highly recommend him - his knowledge of San Francisco is excellent. He was also great with our two daughters (ages 9 & 11). Thanks again Rick!

Our Tour Guide, Rick was on time to meet us and the vehicle was clean and comfortable. Rick has a deep knowledge of San Francisco and the tour was extensive. Rick was most obliging in not rushing the time. We covered a wide area and took in a lot of the "must see" sights. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Great value. Would certainly recommend Rick to anyone.

Muir Woods was a wonderful place to visit, and we had a couple of good stops on the journey to take photos. I hadn't realised that guides are not allowed into the Woods, so Rick gave us the history of the place while we were driving there, which was very interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry you didn't notice the restriction that guides are prohibited from leading groups in Muir Woods. I have now added this restriction to the tour's description as well. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed seeing the redwoods.

Definitely a 5 star tour! Rick picked us up at our San Francisco Hotel at 8am. The tour starts by taking beautiful Highway 1 with many stops for picture taking. Rick was very knowledgeable of the interesting history of this area.The Monterey 17 mile drive was wonderful, stopping for pictures and shopping. We had lunch at Pebble Beach with a view of the 18th hole followed by some additional shopping in Carmel. The trip back to San Francisco was along Highway 101 which also was nice, getting back at 6pm.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am glad you enjoyed your tour of Monterey and Carmel. I think the drive along CA Route 1 is one of the most scenic drives in the U.S. You'll have to come back and see the portion through Big Sur and/or along the Mendocino and Sonoma County coast.

Rick is very knowledgeable about the city, its history and architecture, and yet he doesn't overwhelm you with too much information. He is very attentive and accommodating to your needs.

Our request was to be shown San Francisco and the Sonoma Valley which Rick more than fulfilled. There was Lombard Street, Steiner Street and the corner of Haight and Ashbury - Rick stopping for photos as requested - The Presidio and San Francisco Park; posh houses and ones with grand architecture; Cliff House and Land's End; Rick gave us history and stories without being boring. But for us Sonoma, Della Santini Restaurant & the Petite Sirah taste at Anaba were the highlights. A great day, a great guide!

Della Santina's is a very pleasant place to lunch in the town of Sonoma - deicious food and a nice garden patio. I don't get many requests for Petite Sirah (Durif in France and Australia). When you next come, we'll have to visit Quixote Winery in the Napa Valley. Amazing architecture and good Petite and Cabernet.

Bob and I had a wonderful tour of San Francisco especially since the weather was optimal. It was a delight to have Rick as our guide as his thoughfulness and attention to our conversations brought additional stops during the day. Our quick run into one of the fire stations to obtain a T-shirt for my son and the picture of the golden fire hydrant was a "hit" with my son that could not make the trip. We will definately recommend Rick to others.
