Extranomical Tours is an independent San Francisco sightseeing tour company...

Extranomical Tours is an independent San Francisco sightseeing tour company that specializes in small group tours to Yosemite, Muir Woods, Wine Country & around San Francisco. Due to the small size of our groups, our tours offer a distinct "traveling with friends" feel and can visit locations that larger tour buses cannot, like the Giant Sequoia Grove on our 1-day Yosemite Tour from San Francisco or small family-owned boutique wineries. We are fully insured and licensed by the State of California authorities. We train our guides one-on-one to make sure that they are knowledgeable, courteous and most of all, safe. We carefully select the locations we explore on our tours to maximize your time and allowing you to see the best local sights. We pride ourselves on maintaining an adventurous, yet easy-going atmosphere.

I did the one day tour with Extranomical which I thoroughly enjoyed, however it is an easy sell as Yosemite is just breathtaking - I think you couldn't but enjoy Yosemite no matter which your you do as most buses seemed to stop at the same stops as us, so itinerary wise they are much the same. I did however... More

Despite booking three months prior and due to be picked up at 8.15am they waited until gone 4pm they day before to cancel us due to low numbers. This didn't give us the chance to do the trip we wanted, couldn't offer the day we wanted to do it again. Wouldn't recommend

We did three tours with extranomical. The first was a city tour which was very informative, we did get a little board towards the end because our driver for very wrapped up in architecture so we missed out on a couple of things like Lombard street. The next tour was to Muir woods which once again the driver was very... More

Had a great time getting to know the others on the tour from all around the tour. The wine tastings were wonderful complex wines. Was a great combination of enjoying nature for... More

I did the Alcatraz and city insider tour just the other day. Alcatraz was amazing to see as I imagined it would be. It was a little disappointing to have so many buildings closed to the public but the audio cell tour made you feel like you were reliving those times with the inmates that resided there. The city tour... More

Hi Courtyalana, Thank you for your feedback. Alcatraz are constantly improving and preserving the island for their guests overall experience and for your safety these areas are closed off, however, the parts that are open to guests are the main and most important parts of the prisons history. We are sorry that we could not stop at Lombard St or... More

Just returned from the most disappointing tour I have ever been on. The tour was advised as going to Muir Woods and wine country however when we got on the bus the driver announced that due to a landslide buses were not allowed into Muir Woods and we would be taken to an alternate destination.

Being in wine country it seemed wrong not to do a wine tour even though my wife and I aren't big into our wine. The fact that extranomical offer a tour with the Muir woods makes it even better. I personally would have liked a little bit more time in the Muir woods as you are quite tight for time... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
