Quite simply AWESOME! What an amazing, fun, relaxed and informative way to see this incredible city! We rode with our fabulous guide Chad in the wonderful original VW Camper - Harvey. If you’re visiting SF and want THE best experience, then book jump on Vantigo. Thank you Chad and thank you Harvey!

Girls trip perfection. Five of us age 28 to 58 and with varying degrees of mobility took this tour with Chad last week. The tour was fun for all. We enjoyed Chad's enthusiasm for and knowledge of his city. He also made some restaurant recommendations and they were spot on. We've done various tours in various cities and I would rank this one among the best. Thanks Chad!!

We booked this tour based on the reviews and we were definitely not disappointed. We are a family of four that includes two teenagers (which can be a tough crowd). Chad engaged the teenagers and they absolutely enjoyed the tour too! Lots of great information and some great views. Comfortable ride. The bus even fit our 6ft 3in teenager. Highly recommend this tour you won’t be disappointed!

The Vantigo tour was the highlight of our trip to San Francisco. Chad was an amazing guide. He was funny, courteous, and very knowledgeable about the city. He made sure that we saw the best places in the city and took pictures along the way. Don't miss this tour when you are in San Francisco.

We loved the tour, and planned it for our first day since it helped us decide on places that we wanted to go back to visit. The VW experience was fun as well, and we took turns sitting up in the front and got great family pictures. The tour hit all of the major sites. I would highly recommend this tour company.
