Overview

Experience a private custom tour in a convertible MINI Cooper! Affordable VIP service that takes you where most other tour companies are not allowed. Knowledgeable, local guide who loves San Francisco. Visit boutique Wine Country wineries other tour companies can’t go to in fun and style. We’re the only open-top custom tour in the city. Great for photographers, couples wanting to get away from crowds, or anyone wanting an experience as unique as San Francisco. We go where the big bus tours can't. Cruise down the twists of Lombard Street. Travel up to sweeping views of Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower. See the mansions of Pacific Heights and Sea Cliff. All tours are personalized--see what you want as long as you want. Door to door service. You're in a special city--why take an ordinary tour?

We couldn’t recommend Reed and his mini any more. Thankfully we booked the morning after our arrival and it was a great way to see the sights of SF instead of bumbling our own way around. It definitely pays to have a local’s expertise. Reed’s...More

This is the absolute best way to see the city. Reed is a scholar, and knows the big and small of San Francisco. I give my highest recommendation for this tour.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds
for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North
Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

$85/hr. Reed will do a great job tailoring your tour to whatever budget you allow. We used him twice in Nov 2017; he was awesome and we will use him again if we get back to San Francisco.
