We had a great time with Norman and highly recommend touring with him! He provided the 4 of us (including two 80-year-olds) with a great 5-hour tour of San Fransico that was tailored to our interests. Plus he showed us great out of the way sights like the Yoda fountain that we didn't know about. He was a delight to spend the day with and made our trip very special.

I toured with Norman in the Silicon Valley, and the experience was wonderful. Norman introduced me to the new faces orchestrating the computer technology craze in the Silicon Valley. He drove to various towns so that I could witness the growth and magic of Facebook, Google, and Apple. Norman was punctual for the tour and brought treats for me to eat if I became hungry. He was informative and caring. Norman definitely deserves a 5 rating. Thank you.

My family and I had the pleasure of spending 3.5 hours with Norman today who showed us around San Francisco. We saw all the famous sites and learnt so much about the history of the city. I could not recommend Norman enough a great way for us to start our trip in the US thanks Norman.

We had not used Tours By Locals before, but thought we'd give it a try when our family got together in San Francisco during Thanksgiving break. Norman was absolutely amazing. We gladly spent a good part of our day with him on a 7-hour tour. He was a great combination of warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible. Our family of four highly recommends Norman to anyone looking for a great guide to help you make the most of your time getting to know the City by the Bay!

Norman was outstanding. He was extremely informative and brought us to many spots we didn't even know existed. He was very accommodating and even provided snacks and water. We never felt rushed and were able to spend as much time as we wanted during our stops. He was very friendly but not intrusive and made our day memorable. We unreservedly recommend him!

Many thanks to Norman for a great tour. He was on time, drove carefully and considerately and was very knowledgeable of the different areas of the city and it's environs. He was flexible with the itinerary adapting to our needs. The snack bag of bottled water, chips and health bars was a welcome inclusion. His anecdotes about each of the locations were informative interesting and amusing. If you want a tour from a local's point of view - ask Norman. He won't let you down. We certainly had the best time.

Norman is absolutely the right person to make the best day in San Francisco! I booked a 4 hour tour because we didn't know what it would be like. I wish we had booked a full day. It was so interesting and enjoyable and a lot of this was because of Norman. I can't thank him enough for such an awesome tour!

We enjoyed a wonderful 7 hour tour with Norman during a stopover in San Francisco. This was the perfect way to spend the day. Norman is an exceptional guide, right from our initial communication, flexibility of pick up at the airport, outstanding vehicle, care and concern for our comfort and ensuring he did all he could to make the most of the day for us. Our party included two adults and two teenage boys and the itinerary Norman designed for us kept everyone engaged. We highly recommend Norman.

What an amazing tour and what an amazing host. Norman went above and beyond. Nothing was too much trouble. Norman was accommodating to our needs and changed our plans due to a double booking on our part. It was the highlight of my husband's trip. Norman was a wealth of knowledge and knew all the go-to places. We would certainly do another tour in the future. It exceeded our expectations.

Norman gave us an outstanding overview of the highlights of San Francisco in 3 1/2 hours. We were with our 13 year old grandson, and Norman did a terrific job of making sure our grandson got to see all the sights that interested him.

Simply fantastic! Norman manages to cram so much into this tour, filling it with fun facts, history, and visits to some of the city's hidden gems, in addition to the major sites. He is a wonderful conversationalist, acts as your personal photographer, and is a pleasure to spend time with. It's obvious he goes out of his way to make this tour an exceptional one - even providing delicious snacks! As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe and at ease. Highly recommend. Hope to tour with Norman again.

Norman was very personable and made sure we saw everything we wanted, plus more. He was very informative and shared stories of San Fran we didn't even know about. I would highly suggest Norman and his tour service for anyone wanting a comfortable, personal tour of the city, it was better than expected.

Each of us enjoyed this trip very much. Thank you Norman for going at our own pace and telling us lot of trivia that I didn't know even living in Bay Area for 20 years. We really appreciate that Norman was so caring about my parents limited mobility. My son loved chatting with Norman. I would highly recommend this tour to my friends.

Norman did a fantastic job showing us the sites of San Francisco. We were able to stop and get out to take pictures or explore sites more in depth. I would highly recommend this tour for people who have a very limited time to explore the San Francisco area.
