This is an odd review because we have yet to meet Gary. We made a booking for September 2019 which we had to cancel due to serious illness then made a second booking for May 2020 which we have had to cancel due to Covid19. Our review is purely about Garys professionalism. In both cases our money was refunded promptly with no fuss. We very much hope to make another attempt at seeing San Francisco with Gary in 2021

Gary was an EXCELLENT tour guide!!! He was extremely knowledgable, friendly and very flexible. We have been on many private tours in cities around the world and Gary gets an A+++. We would have never seen half the things we did with Gary and it was nice to have someone else who knows the city map everything out. We went everywhere and had the best time!!!

It's not easy to WOW a 13 year old teen boy and his mom at the same time but Gary did just that, surprising us every step of the way with great stops and a wealth of knowledge. Gary is a bay area pro and his passion about this area is palpable from the get go. He even gave us advice before meeting us, sharing his favorite San Fran food and drink spots. I would highly recommend Gary's tour to anyone seeking a great bay area experience!

I actually live in the bay area and had some family visiting. While I feel like I know a few things about SF and can certainly show people around, we ended up leaving it to a professional and hired Gary to take us around for half a day. It was a really cool experience...Gary knows so many little details I had know idea about despite living in the area for years. We explored the Golden-Gate National Recreation Area for a bit and then spent the rest of the time going around some of the common (and less common) areas of the city. Gary is super friendly, funny and quintessentially "SF" and will regale you with many cool stories and tidbits about the area. If you are not very familiar (and even if you are) with SF, I'd definitely recommend booking a tour with Gary if you are able. It will really help you maximize your time and give you whatever kind of experience you are looking for (e.g. active, relaxing, etc.).
