About
Looking for an authentic private way to experience San Francisco? Trade the tour bus for a vintage Volkswagen van that easily navigates the city’s less-traveled lanes. Vantigo’s San Francisco City Tour takes you through 14 famed districts, and a few stops, complete with views of Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, and several other storied landmarks. Along the way, we’ll share tales of earthquakes that shaped the landscape, industrial shifts from the 1849 Gold Rush to the rise of Silicon Valley, 1960s counterculture, and surprising insights that only a local would know. Snacks, drinks, beer and wine included! Whether this is your first San Francisco visit or you’ve lived here for years, you’ll see the city from a new perspective. Book today. Then, sit back and enjoy the ride!

Chad was awesome! He is funny, very knowledgable about the history of San Francisco, creative (he had matching music to the areas we visited), and gracious. We had a fun time!

Our private tour with Chad was really the highlight of our visit to San Francisco. He showed us everything we could have wanted to see and some things we didn't even know about before. This was an absolutely wonderful experience. He was great with my teenagers. I wish I could give him ten stars.

I highly recommend taking a tour of San Francisco with Vantigo. Chad was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and has a passion for sharing fun facts and history. He also took enough time at stops to let people take photos and he volunteered to take photos of each group. This tour was much more intimate and personal than any other tour I have taken in San Francisco. It is evident that Chad loves his job and he strives hard to make sure everyone has a good time and enjoys the tour.

We had an amazing 4 hour private tour with Vantigo. Our tour guide Chad was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He made the tour tons of fun for our entire group of 7 that ranged in ages from 9 to 75. I couldn’t imagine a better tour of San Francisco than in a classic VW van with a fabulous tour guide. Highly recommend.

Chad was awesome, we had the best morning ever in SF. He provided so much information and it was a pleasure to just take in the city . I could not have asked for a better adventure for my two teenage granddaughters, they talked about it for days afterwards. I highly recommend this private tour to anyone visiting SF. Well worth the money!

In a VW bus - no less! Our group of six will tell you this was a great tour. Eliza, our tour guide and VW bus driver...was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about San Francisco and gave us facts and stories to remember. This was mine and my wife's first trip to San Francisco, (while the others had been there previously), and all of us were pleased with the locations we visited. The time went by very quickly but was well worth it. Thanks Eliza. We highly recommend this tour.

This tour was hands-down the best part of our trip to San Francisco. We all enjoyed it tremendously and getting to see the highlights of the city via a personal guide was amazing. Chad was so professional, super knowledgeable and also lots of fun. Well worth the money!

We booked Vantigo San Fransisco, for a private tour, with a group of 7 of us (which consisted 4 adults and 3 teenage boys) . We read great reviews about Vantigo and were lucky enough to have Chad as our guide, and he most definitely did not disappoint! Our first time in San Fransisco, coming from Australia, Chad was quite informative, entertaining , and has a witty sense of humour! We all loved him especially the teenage boys. He showed us and explained the history and facts of San Fransisco that were not only fascinating but intriguing.
Message from the teenage boys:
All in all he was an absolute legend and we do not regret our choice!
Thanks Chad , great job, will definitely recommend you to all our friends.
Cheers-
