“San Francisco must...”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

My wife and I took the Dylan’s Famous Tour lead by Dylan's brother Brendan our tour guide. Brendan did a great job explaining the unique characteristics of the San Francisco districts that we visited as well as pointing out various famous landmarks. He made plenty of stop throughout the city for photo opportunities and to point out and describe in detail historical facts about the sites. The nice thing about this tour is that you head out of the city across the Golden Gate bridge drive through Sausalito for an hour plus stop at Muir Woods. Muir Woods is a sight to behold, we could have spent all day there hiking amongst the giant redwoods. Very enjoyable, the time flew by so much to take in, I would highly recommend this tour! A San Francisco must...

“One of a kind”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This is an awesome tour for getting a great overview of the city and the surrounding areas. Dylan knows his city and gave us great information. He made it fun and gave us plenty of stops and picture moments. Worth the money for the small group tour. We learned much more than a big bus tour.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We had time for one tour, and selected this from the advice of other Trip Advisor posts. So glad we did! I can't add much more than what other reviewers have said. This tour is comfortable, informative, filled with fun facts, and covers all the high points of the area without rushing. We had a bad experience with a hop on hop off bus in another city, so decided to go for the smaller, more personal type tour. I can't imagine any is better than this one.

“A must do tour!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Dylan was a fabulous tour guide, small group, interesting info about living in San Fran's different communities-- did t just rattle off facts but gave us the flavors of the districts. Plenty of stop offs to grab shots. Dylan was very easy going and professional--- and I highly recommend using his tour-- we were thrilled.

“Excellent Tour”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

My wife and I ( early 50 somethings) took this tour with Brendan as our guide. Went to all the main areas of SF and the Muir Woods and found him engaging and informative. Had a lot of neat stories and historical info. I really like that when we went by Sausalito and he was talking about the houseboats that people made in the late 60's he started to play a song by Otis Redding called "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay" and told us that he wrote the song when he lived in these houseboats. Lots of little info like this.
If in SF, I recommend this tour.
