      In a city with such a big selection of diverse neighborhoods, we’ll find the one that appeals to your particular interests on San Francisco private tours with us. There’s the uber-trendy street art-plastered Mission District, known for its distinct Latin American influence and stylish eateries, and Chinatown, a colorful maze of streets where locals congregate for Shanghai dumplings and steamed buns. If it’s museums you’re looking for on your San Francisco private tours, SoMa is the place to be, while North Beach is perfect for Beat Generation gems and authentic Italian flavor.

      In a city with so many fantastic places to grab a drink, it’s no surprise the unique drinking scene is an unmissable part of private tours in San Francisco. The city’s chilled-out rooftop bars, cozy pubs, and century-old speakeasies are a treat – but with the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma just an hour away, why not head out on private wine tours from San Francisco? With your local guide along for the ride, spend a lazy afternoon sampling the region’s Zinfandel rosés, woody reds, and crisp whites. The city may be known for inventing the Mai Tai, but wine is where it really shines.

      Latest reviews from our guests

        I wouldn’t have enjoyed my time in San Francisco half as much without John as my guide to the neighbourhoods of North Beach, Chinatown, and the waterfront! Having lived in the area for so many years, he was well-versed in the history and lore of the area. I felt like I learned so much!
