I am a rare attraction in itself! I am a San Francisco native. My qualifications come from going out many weekends and enjoying what the city has to offer and passing on my passion for the city and wanting everyone who visits to fall in love with the city. The best qualifications include actually doing and experiencing different locations, and I know San Francisco history from the mid 1800s to hippie 70s, the 89 earthquake. I love this city and want to share it with others and show them it really is the most beautiful and fun city.

I booked this last minute, and i am glad i did. The many places that Susan guided me thru were spectacular. She truly made me feel like a local. Very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. I recommend this trip to anyone pressed for time but would like to see the highlights of San Francisco thru the lense of a local.

Well worth the investment if you’re looking for a day of learning and exploring cool spots around the city! I wouldn’t have known about or been able to get to all of these places on my own.

It was my second day in San Francisco and I am glad we did this tour. Susan offered to pick us up from our hotel and we started the tour. She knows a lot of San Francisco! And she is very polite and patient. This tour allows you to have a great perspective of San Francisco in one day. We stop to take pictures and spend a few minutes enjoying views. I gotta say she takes really great pictures! The next days, I was able to visit the places I like the most and spend more time in those.

Susan went over and beyond for me to see iconic locations in the city and she was super friendly. She will show you the length and breath of San Francisco. I loved every moment.

Susan was extremely friendly and hospitable. She offered a vehicle accessible tour and let you get out at any point at the attractions you wanted to explore further. She gave me a personalized experience and made me feel right at home. We visited all of the tourist attractions in San Francisco and she was very knowledgeable about the city; hidden gems and all. She went above and beyond and took amazing pictures of me at every attraction. I would highly recommend this insightful tour. Exception value! I spent 8 hours touring all the major towns, historical sites and tourist attractions the Bay has to offer. I’ll definitely be touring with Susan again! My experience with her made me feel like family!

Susan is a wonderful guide, she is a true local and was happy to share her deep knowledge of San Fransisco history. It is a perfect tour if you are first time in the city or only have one or two days to explore. We enjoyed seeing all the major attractions in a very convenient way. Susan knows where to park (saves a ton if time) and also where to take best pictures. She is very accommodating and made sure to adjust the tour to our needs. We spent as little or as much we wanted at each spot. We did not feel rushed at any point. She even had drinks and snacks for us and charges in her car. Overall wonderful experience, highly recommended. Thank you Susan!
