Even if you have done other SF tours, as we had, you MUST do this tour. Tara was an incredible guide. We went to so many places. The van brings a cool vibe to the tour, and the small group size made it intimate. We did not know a lot of the information presented.

What a relaxing light hearted tour! Perfect for our first day in San Francisco. Tara presented interesting history and facts. Plus her music choices captured the context of the times and the location of the tour. We lived those psychedelic days. While older now and slower moving we felt as carefree during the tour as our memories remind us of those feelings from the past.

The tour was right on time. Our guide, Alfred, was so much fun and was a local in the city so he knew a lot of interesting facts and history. The picture taking spot near the Golden Gate Bridge was awesome! It was neat to get around the city into places that a large bus tour couldn’t go. What a terrific way to spend a morning! We loved the 60’s music too!

Awesome Tour.
