A Very Groovy Tour , Pete was extremely friendly and informative about San Francisco. Feeling like a movie star having our picture taken by other people was very cool.

If you’re going to tour San Francisco? Remember to ride the VW love bus tour.
From hearing the old vW engine coming down the street to pick you up, stepping onto the shag pile carpet and having tourists snap photos of your hippie van driving down Lombard street; this tour is not to be missed. The guide, Allen, ensured the 60s music and trivia flowed as we puttered around tourist attractions common ( Golden Gate Bridge) and not so common ( those stairs of the Grateful Dead house and their neighbors the hells angels)
The family sang, laughed and felt comfortable in the 7 seater van. It is more like having a friend show you his town.

This was a fun tour. The best fun was really to be in the van itself.

My girls and I had so much fun and learned so much from Bob! Very interesting and cool thing to do on our first day.

Great tour with a great guide Bob. Saw things in SF we never knew existed, and places you'd never be allowed through to see on a large tour bus including crooked street Lombard Street. We'd recommend doing this at the start of your stay as you get incites into some hidden gems and places to go that you wouldn't get to know about by walking around Fishermans Wharf! Peace n Love

What a great time we had with Bob! He told us all about SanFran and literally showed us every hotspot in town. Would highly recommend this tour over any other tour. You get to see a lot more...
