I would highly recommend this tour for anyone. Roger's knowledge of the city was impressive and provides tidbits of information... More

We were in a minivan and he went out of his way to fulfill all of our requests for the tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and the... More

His knowledge and passion for his work shone through and we all enjoyed very much his views and descriptions of this wonderful city. Although originally booked for... More

We had only a couple of days in San Francisco so decided a private tour might be our best option. Our day began at 11:00 when Danilo picked us up at our hotel. He was even a little early and texted when he was out front. He drove us throughout the city in a clean and comfortable minivan, supplied us... More

Dan picked our family of 6 up at our hotel. He was on time, the car was clean and comfortable and we were off to wine country. Dan was informative without being overbearing and suggested places to go but wasn't pushy. He went out of his way to provide us with great service. He had water and candy available and... More

We booked two tours with Silver Lion about a month before the travel dates. Little did we know it would be the best decision of our trip. Absolutely worth every penny! Danilo was our guide and he was fantastic. What a great guy! He picked us up on time at our vrbo rental on Monday and spent four hours showing... More

We booked two 4 hour tours on back to back days. Danilo was our tour guide and he was fantastic! He picked us up promptly at our hotel and showed us all around the city including Muir Woods and Sausalito. We had included our wish list of places to see and he did his best to hit all of them....

Absolutely wonderful tour with the friendly and knowledgeable Tatjana!! Went many different places and loved special touches like champagne/almonds on Twin Peaks and great music to correspond with certain tour areas.
