THE BEST CITY TOUR OF ALL TIME.
Jul 2021
This is a triple 5-star rating. 5 stars for the music of the 60's which was well timed to what we were seeing. 5 stars for the entertaining and informative commentary of the guide. And 5 stars for the bus and the environment set. People all over the route recognized and honked at the period-correct bus with all its historical quirks. (Don't expect to win any uphill speed races!!) Our entire group spent 2 hours laughing, singing and learning some of the most interesting history of early SF and rock music.

This was by far and away the best city tour we have ever taken in any country.

A Unique Experience in a Unique Vehicle

This was just great fun! The VW bus was cool, and Alfred was a great guide. We saw all the important sights, including great views of the Golden Gate Bridge. We learned a lot of new things about what we saw. Even our three teen girls enjoyed it.

Live in the 60s a while!
Great idea for our family of 6 (max)! Judith was an authentic 60s guide with extensive details on area attractions. Only complaint was there don’t use any microphone so I heard very little in the back where VW bus was loud. If you get our same bus, expect it to be rough on your neck... getting up those hills can get jarring. We had stellar weather. A private tour lets you be flexible about what you’d like to see...loved that.

Simply a must if visiting San Francisco
Oct 2019
I booked the Love bus for our family holiday and it lived up to everything I hoped it would do. What a fantastic experience and so much fun for us all. Our driver Alfred was exceptional and it was clearly obvious that he loves his job and his knowledge was exceptional. We saw all the sights that we wanted and stopped for amazing photo opportunities. While driving through the Golden Gate park we had a rather strange experience where we came across a driver who had no patience and was annoyed that Alfred was going slowly (showing us stuff) and started peeping her horn at us and when she was able to pass she flipped us off to which Alfred said "who flip's off the Love Bus". The only way to go down Lombard Street is in a Love Bus all the while listening and singing to fantastic songs. Anytime we are in San Francisco we will do this again as we loved it. Thanks for a great experience and making this trip part off our memories.

Great tour with great host/driver
Oct 2019
We did the 4 hour private tour with Judith as our driver / guide. She did an exceptional job maneuvering the manual drive bus through the tight spots, steep hills and terrible traffic in San Francisco. Got to see everything we asked for and them some. Had great suggestions of places to see and a lot of interesting facts and tidbits about SF. Drove down Lombard street which was fun. The colorful buses get a lot of attention and get places the big tour buses can't. Definitely recommend this company if your visiting SF or just want to learn more if your new to the areas.

Groovy Tour of San Francisco with Tons of Culture
Sep 2019
My husband and I booked a Private San Francisco Love Tour while in town to see Metallica's S&M2. We didn't have a ton of time in the city, so we were hoping to see a lot and get a sense of the city's hippie past.

Our tour guide was Bob and we had a great morning with him. You can tell he loved his city and we always love touring a place with someone who is passionate about where they live.

Bob gave us a fun and informative tour of the city including visits and walks in the Botanical Gardens, the Painted Ladies, and Haight Asbury. We loved driving through the Castro and down Lombard Street. Our Hippie Van was really cool. The inside was as decorated as the outside and we saw tons of people taking photos of it everywhere we went. Bob also got us some great views of the Golden Gate and the skyline. He also shared some tips for where to go, eat, and shop in San Francisco, as well as sharing so much of what living in San Francisco is like.

It was great going at our own pace, since it was just the two of us and our tour guide on the private tour. We got so much more out of it that way!

If you're in San Francisco, I'd definitely recommend taking this tour! It's a great introduction to the city and a lot of fun!

Great Tour around the city
We had a fantastic tour all round the city, under the Golden Gate bridge we were treated like celebrities and we had a fantastic experience. The driver was very knowledgeable in the area and took us on a very informative and fun tour.

Best way for a group of 6 to tour San Francisco.
Jun 2019 • Friends
Our family vacation made an awesome choice when we booked a private Love Tour of San Francisco! Tyler was an excellent driver/tour guide and hit all the sites on our bucket list and more! Having four hours to tour, we were able to get a good feel for the city and all the iconic photos we could have wanted.
