Overview

We provide a unique way to take in all of the sights of San Francisco in our fully restored vintage Volkswagen buses named Pearl & Poppy! As well as providing extended excursions outside of San Francisco to Muir Woods and Wine Country. They are all lot's of fun. Pearl & Poppy can go many places that larger tour buses have been banned from or just cannot access, including Alamo Square (Painted Ladies), Lombard Street and even those narrow alleys with beautiful murals in the Mission which makes them excellent choices for City Tours! Also, Josh and his team are committed to making sure guest are having a great experience. In previous phase of his life, Josh has managed fine dining restaurants, composed music for national commercials, TV shows & movies and he and his wife hosted international guests from around the world for 5 years with over 400 positive reviews! His wife, Virgine, speaks fluent Flemish, Dutch & French for those possibly interested in translation, and she is always available to help with any questions or details. We look forward to the opportunity to show you our favorite spots! Painted Ladies Tour Company is fully licensed through the California Public Utilities Commission as a Charter and Sightseeing company.

Not the generic sterile city tours. Unequivocally the best city tour we’ve done thus far. Full of character and a great way to see the city. 10/10.
