Hubby and I have a 5 hr layover at SFO in Sept. We hope we can see as much as we can in about 3-4 hours, before returning to the airport. Approximately how much would I be paying for a customized tour. We don't mind if there are others on the tour. I'm asking for budget and planning purposes. Thank you so much............Charmaine
