    What To Expect

    Your tour begins in the morning at Fisherman's Wharf, where you meet your guide for a drive around San Francisco. Over the course of the day, you get a look at the city's diverse neighborhoods and geography, stopping at several locations where you can hop off the bus to take photos and look around a bit.

    After your city tour, enjoy a walk through the massive redwood trees in Muir Woods.

    Then, head to the quaint town of Sausalito for lunch (own expense).

    Back in the city, you have the option to purchase your own Alcatraz ticket and board a ferry from Pier 33 for the ride across the bay to Alcatraz Island, home to the former prison of the same name. Enjoy the prison's fascinating audio tour as you explore the cellblock, and then return to Pier 33 on the ferry to end your day tour.

    Fisherman's Wharf (Pass By)

    One of San Francisco's most popular destinations - from beautiful old shipyards, to Boudin's Bakery and the smell of fresh clam chowder, and of course, the sea lions of Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf has it all.

    North Beach (Pass By)

    Voted as one of the USA's "ten great neighborhoods", North Beach is best known as the home of Little Italy. From delicious restaurants to authentic sidewalk cafes and bakeries, you will feel the charm of San Francisco as soon as you arrive.

    Muir Woods was great as...
    Megan_P, Jan 2023
    Muir Woods was great as was Alcatraz! Due to park opening time delay we did not go to Sausalito. The tour of San Francisco was mediocre.
    Response from Host, Jan 2023
    Hello Megan, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Dylan's Tours. We are sorry to hear that the tour was mediocre. You happened to arrive in San Francisco during a rainy, gloomy weekend. This caused Muir Woods to open 2 hours later than usual because of fallen trees and flooding the previous days. Upon hearing the news about Muir Woods opening later your tour guide had to make decisions about what would be best for all in the group. We are aware of the situation and plan to be better prepared in the future. We ask that you email us at if you have further comments about how we can better our San Francisco tour. We hope you will try us again in the future. Thanks, Billy, General Manager at Dylan's Tours

    Thrilling San Francisco Tour
    Elsa_L, Dec 2022
    Fantastic tour with Tony! Had a blast learning about the many popular neighborhoods in SF. Muir Woods was a beautiful eye-opener to the rich history of these ginormous trees. Sausalito was such a quaint little town by the bay. Lunch was exceptional while watching the locals bike and walk their dogs! Such a calming atmosphere! Alcatraz was quite an experience! Thoroughly enjoyed the history of this famous penitentiary including the ferry ride to & from the island.
    Sully's Awesome Adventures!
    Carl_B, Dec 2022
    Our Driver Sully was First Class. Honestly, the best tour guide my wife and I have ever had. Professional, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. Please share our review with him. Carl Bosley

    Enjoyed our tour-guide was super friendly and knowledgeable. Even though it rained, he still managed to drive us around town and show us the interesting landmarks in SF
    A great time!
    Leslie_D, Dec 2022
    Our tour guide was Tony! He was amazing. Gave us so much information along the way and was also funny. Would absolutely recommend.
    Must do if you want to see San Francisco and surroundings
    Michal_W, Nov 2022
    Our tour guide - Tony was really good. Full of positive energy, good humour and a lot of stories, not only about places we were visiting, but also about different celebrities and San Francisco in general. We enjoyed every minute of this trip-highly recommended.
    Great experience, no hassle!
    Korinne_L, Nov 2022
    We had a great time! Ro was a great local guide! I would definitely recommend Dyan's tours! We got a good overview of the city, and everything was well timed! Lots of bathroom breaks, and so many great sights!
    Larry_S, Nov 2022
    Tour was great. Driver was excellent but the weather was foggy. No control over the weather. Definitely would recommend the tour.
    Terrible communication, unable to resolve travel issues
    Kevin_W, Oct 2022
    We had 2 members of our party come down with COVID before the event. I messaged the vendor and did not hear back via the Viator app. Once I was finally able to get someone on the phone, they said it would be no problem to reschedule. We were instructed to email but I never heard back from the company. Even after several phone calls this was never resolved.
    Perfect for solo trip
    Amanda_P, Oct 2022
    Enjoyed the times at Muir Woods, Felt I saw the town and have a good idea of what neighborhoods I want to explore more on my own
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Hi Amanda, Thank you for your kind review. We're happy to hear you felt like you got to see the neighborhoods of San Francisco and that it helped you decide which ones you'd love to explore more independently. Muir Woods is a magical experience, and we're glad you enjoyed your visit there, too! We hope you're able to enjoy one of Dylan's Tours again someday. Thanks, Britt
