For our mother/daughter graduation trip, we chose Silver Lion based on Trip Advisor reviews. Andre picked us up from our hotel for a 4-hr tour of San Francisco and he did not disappoint! We were in a minivan and he went out of his way to fulfill all of our requests for the tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and the tour was completely personalized. Further, my adult daughter has high functioning autism, and he was very aware and conscientious of her "eccentricities." I highly recommend this service, and specifically, Andre!

This is without doubt a great way to start any city break.
Our guide and driver was Dirk and from our first introduction proved to be a first rate ambassador for his company.
His knowledge and passion for his work shone through and we all enjoyed very much his views and descriptions of this wonderful city.
Although originally booked for fours hours we added a extra hour on as we were all,enjoying so much our tour and his friendly and humorous company.
The car was very comfortable and although not a cheap way to see the city and surrounding areas it was certainly worth every cent, thanks Dirk.

We had only a couple of days in San Francisco so decided a private tour might be our best option. Our day began at 11:00 when Danilo picked us up at our hotel. He was even a little early and texted when he was out front. He drove us throughout the city in a clean and comfortable minivan, supplied us with candy and water. We mentioned a few places on our list to see such as Lombard St, Fisherman's Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge. Those were covered as well as many more sites that Danilo suggested. He even drove us over the Golden Gate Bridge and half way across the Bay Bridge. The information he passed on was so helpful to first time visitors to the city. The weather was good that day so he drove up the winding road to twin peaks to a breath-taking view of the city. Along the way Danilo pointed out homes that were owned by celebrities or a particular former speaker of the house. At the end of the tour we were dropped off at Fisherman's Wharf and given detailed directions to the cable car stop so we could ride it back to Union Square. This tour is pricey but worth it!!

Dan picked our family of 6 up at our hotel. He was on time, the car was clean and comfortable and we were off to wine country. Dan was informative without being overbearing and suggested places to go but wasn't pushy. He went out of his way to provide us with great service. He had water and candy available and even went to buy ponchos for us when it was raining in Muir woods. He quickly became a friend and when we stopped for lunch we were delighted to treat him to lunch (he was going to wait in the car) He surprised us with a beautiful high point view of SF with champagne after he stopped charging us.
