If you’ve been to San Francisco before and want to see more. Or, if you want to see the main sights of San Francisco but also some lesser known and less visited sights, this tour is for you. We will drive around the city with private transportation, and follow some routes less travelled.
This is a custom tour designed for the curious. I will take your ideas or recommend some of my own. For example, we may decide to cross the Golden Gate Bridge and view the city from the Marin Headlands; we may drive into Pacific Heights and ogle the multi-million dollar homes; we may view the city from the charming 16th street tile steps; or we may visit the Diego Rivera Mural at the San Francisco Academy of Art. It’s up to you.
This all-day tour will include stops at museums and stops for photos. Let me know your interests, and I will design the tour around those interests.
Our itinerary will be customized to your own preferences. We may start on the Embarcadero, and continue to Fisherman’s Wharf where you will be able to see the shops, restaurants and working fishing boats in the harbor. Later we will drive down the crooked Lombard Street, drive up a steep Telegraph Hill to Coit Tower, and drive over amazing Nob Hill with its prestigious hotels and cable cars. We will pass through Chinatown on our way to Union Square (the shopping district), then head west to the Civic Center and our beautiful domed city hall. Further south we may walk through the Mission, and enjoy the outdoor murals as well as the tasty pastries, coffees and ethnic cuisines. This tour will include Twin Peaks viewpoint, weather permitting, Golden Gate Park, Golden Gate Bridge, Lands End and Pacific Heights Mansions. Your tour guide will recommend other destinations, time permitting.
