The best tour ever!! For two days, Holger gave us a personalized tour of SF. This man knows his city and is very passionate about it. The detail he gave and preparation for the tour made it worth ever penny spent. The price was reasonable but the experience priceless. We will definitely come back and use his services to tour...

We wanted something else than the regular guidetours - and we were not disapointed! Tatjana is a great, warm, funny and caring guide. We saw the beautiful Muir Woods, drank champagne at a beautiful view of the bridge and had a fun citytour.

We scheduled two tours in one booking and I was actually worried because maybe I should try one trip first before booking another one. Well it turned out to be the best decision since we had the most amazing, superstar guide in our whole trip (and we booked 5 different private tours in the west coast/midwest area), Mr. Holger van...

Six of us adults travelling together on a Princess Cruise, booked Silver Lion Service and we were not disappointed. Dan took us around the area on a half day tour. Drove down Lombard Street, across the San Francisco bridge, and out to Sausilito. He also took us to different view points seeing the city from different angles. Dan was so... More

Spectacular engineering achievement with fantastic views. Tourists ALWAYS freezing on the bridge = underdressed.

We visited Monterey and Carmel for a full day tour. Please do not hesitate to book with Silver Lion. We got to see stunning coastline, the aquarium and more. Your comfort and enjoyment are their only concern and they will make sure the day is perfect for YOU.

I have seen places that I believe even locals don't know about. It was a great trip, Dirk asked for my preferences and drove me to locations that were just amazing. I am an amateur photographer and it was so convenient to leave a car anywhere I want, walk around, take pictures and then he picked me up and we... More
