5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Started off on a Shakey note when we were put onto the wrong tour. But luckily we caught up with Tom and it was all good from then on. We went places that we wouldn't have dreamed of going. Tom had great stories and obviously knew his way around China Town. All topped off with a visit to a tea house. Very funny time was had sipping various teas. Great tour.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and sights were interesting. The food was tasty and local shop keepers, wok store and tea shop hilarious.
I would definitely use them again!

The tour guide, Todd, was excellent. He had a wealth of knowledge and a passion for history. He was a wonderful guide. Since we had a very small group, I think we were able to see a few extra places during the tour. We saw all of San Francisco and we had the opportunity to sample pizza from Cinectta, cannoli from Stella's Bakery, pasta, and tea from the Vital Tea Leaf. We had a blast.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

We had a great time on this tour. There was not as much focus on food as we had expected. However the tour of the actual city was incredible and filled with lots of fun facts and stops at unique places.

4 star rating: Recommended December 2013

We liked the food and the sights. We really enjoyed Robert as our driver and we thought Sasha was quite knowledgeable and both were very friendly and personable. The only downside was the other 6 tourists on the tour with us were quite unsocialable and arrogant. Although, their attitude was less than desirable, we didn't let it ruin the day because we knew we'd never have to see them again. We were impressed that the manager/owner came to talk to us at the end of the tour to see how we liked it.

The tour bus was very late picking us up from our hotel. Otherwise it was a great tour..excellent tour guide and a very interesting experience. Highly recommend.

I like this tour because it was a small tour. The tour guide was very friendly. She made it very comfortable. I like that we were able to see a lot of different places in a short time.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2014

Only stopped at one restaurant, food was marginal. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and did his best to explain the city as we traveled to a point where it seemed he tried too hard. The bus driver did not seem to know where we were going and it required us to make several turn around. The tour guild had to split his time directing the driver and talking to us. It was really a 4+ hour bus ride around the city versus a food sightseeing tour. Not what I expected.

I believe we were booked on the wrong tour. We were told our tour started at 1pm and to be ready for pick up at our hotel between 12pm and 1pm. We were finally picked up at 2:30pm. We had to contact the local tour company multiple times while we waited and were told several reasons for why the driver was running late. When we were finally picked up, the others on the tour seemed to know the tour started at 3pm, not at 1pm (note - we were told 1pm). We wanted the 1pm tour, not the 3pm tour. The actual tour was nice and we got to visit and see several sites we have not been to before while in San Francisco. However, due to the tour starting later, as we drove past several of sites we were not able to see them due to it being dark outside. It got almost comical as our guide described what we should be seeing but could not. A huge disappointment was when we stopped at the Cliff House. It was dusk and foggy. We could hear the water hitting the rocks but could not see the ocean. If we had arrived at this site earlier we might have had a site to see. Also, due to the tour starting two hours later than we thought we missed our dinner plans for that evening. That was very disappointing. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kind. We enjoyed spending time with him. I believe in the future I will book my tours directly through the local company rather than using a 3rd party company like Viator.
