We love private group tours (and they love us)! Whether you represent a group, a business, or a large family, we have a perfect private San Francisco tour for you! We are happy to customize each tour depending on our audience.
Because we're awesome! We employ only the best, brightest and most energetic tour guides in the city. We have fantastic Tripadvisor reviews for a reason - we're great at what we do! Click here to see the reviews.
We can also combine our award winning walking tours into your itinerary (e.g. Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf). Since we are a small company, and we only book one group at a time, your group will get the extra special attention you can't get from the larger companies.

Private Tour FAQ
Q: Do you have a minimum/maximum number of guests?
A: Not really. We find that groups larger than 40 are difficult to navigate through city streets, but if that's ok with you, it's ok with us!
Q: Are your rates per person or per guide?
A: Our private tour rates are based on the number of guides rather than a number of guests. Our rates don't change unless you have enough guests to warrant more than one guide. But we are happy to be flexible on this.
Q: Are your tours customizable?
A: YES! You hire a guide, not a tour. Our guides and admin staff can help you work out an itinerary that will suit your schedule and interests. Sometimes not everything you want to see is within walking distance or can fit in your requested time frame, but we do our best to show you everything that San Francisco has to offer!
Q: Can you give us a tour inside (name a museum)?
A: We do not offer large group tours inside most museums. Many museums have their own docents and frown upon outside groups coming through. However, if you have a small group we can work something out.
Q: Do I have to pay in advance?
A: Yes, we request payment in order to confirm a guide. We accept checks and credit cards through Paypal. You do not need a Paypal account.
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: We strive to be as flexible as possible. We know how vacation/work/family plans can change! However, we also have to be responsive to the schedule of our guides. So, our overall policies:
- Tours canceled with more than 14 days' notice are entitled to a full refund.
- Tours canceled between 2 and 13 days before the tour are subject to a 25% cancellation fee.
- Tours canceled with less than 48 hours' notice are non-refundable.
Q: What if I show up in San Francisco and it's raining?
A: In general, our tours will happen rain or shine. However, we obviously want everybody to have a good time. So if there is inclement weather we will work with our guides to do everything we can to reschedule the tour.
