My fiancé and I visited San Francisco and found this tour. We had Sean and he went above and beyond giving us knowledge of the city. We have never been on a tour that has offered the amount of information Sean did.

Patrick was a great guide! He shared all the great tourism information but also some wonderful personal stories. Ask him where he was during the 1989 earthquake and where his grandfather was during the earthquake of 1906.

Patrick was our tour guide, he was friendly and very knowledgable as he took us around San Fran and the surrounding areas. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to explore the city, especially if its a short trip, this tour packed a lot in, but didn't feel rushed. Felt safe and covid guidelines were followed.
