This small-group minibus tour gives wonderful local insight into the 3 "must do" locations around San Francisco - a comprehensive city tour, the charming waterfront town of Sausalito, and over an hour in Muir Woods Redwood National Monument. You will have plenty of chances to get off the bus for photos and exploration. We'll start near Lombard St. (the "crooked street"), then head to North Beach (Little Italy) and Chinatown (the largest outside of Asia.) I'll share my favorite restaurants so you can make dinner plans. Next up is Twin Peaks , which offers the perfect photo of the downtown skyline, the Castro (home to Harvey Milk) and the Mission, where you can walk amongst beautiful artist murals. The next stop is Haight-Ashbury, the origin of hippie culture and home to countless "Painted Ladies" and a stop at my favorite market. Once back on the bus, I'll show you another one of my favorite photo spots, Pacific Heights, overlooking the Bay. We'll then drive through the Presidio (home to Lucas Films) and to Fort Point for a perfect photo of the Golden Gate Bridge. Once across the bridge we'll stop in Sausalito, where you can purchase a casual lunch and enjoy waterfront views. I will then drive you to Muir Woods, home to some of the oldest and most beautiful trees in the world; you will have over an hour to walk amongst the breathtaking redwoods before coming back to SF.
My name is Dylan David and I'm a native San Franciscan, something that's pretty rare these days! After traveling the world in my early 20's, I was eager to share a local's perspective of my hometown and began giving tours out of my own car, an old soccer mom minivan. Now, after 10-years, I've grown into a multi-bus operation offering intimate, small group tours of my 3 favorite places here: San Francisco, Sausalito (a former artist colony located just across the Golden Gate Bridge) and Muir Woods (home to some of the oldest, living trees in the world). Along with myself, my fellow experience host Coleman Feeney love to share the history and best "local's spots" on tours and hope to see you on your visit to this beautiful part of the world. We encourage you to learn more about our tours and San Francisco on Instagram at dylanstourssf.
