San Francisco City Insider's Morning Tour

Our San Francisco City Insider's Morning Tour is given from a local perspective. It takes about 4 hours and it is "semi-private," which means that it is a smaller group so you can enjoy more stops and photo opportunities and spend more time at a favorite location on your tour. Get off the beaten path, explore the road less traveled and visit hidden locations. Some options include: Watching the surfers at Ocean Beach, visiting Golden Gate Park, taking in the view from Telegraph Hill, and visiting historic Fort Point in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The San Francisco City Insider’s Morning Tour is great for those who want to discover some of the hidden sights not included in the big bus tours of major operators or popular guidebooks! Feel free to request areas that interest you and our driver will try to accommodate your request. That's the beauty of small group tours: flexibility to partially customize the tour itinerary depending on the group's preferences. Schedule a different tour with us for the other half of your day to complete your visit to San Francisco - we'll make sure you get there on time. Popular combinations for the SF City Insider’s Tour are with Muir Woods.

San Francisco Bay Cruise Option: Upgrade your City Insider's Tour to include a San Francisco Bay Cruise, where you will sail underneath the Golden Gate Bride and will enjoy breathtaking views of San Francisco's waterfront, Alcatraz Island, San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, Fort Mason, Angel Island, Marin Headlands and Sauslito.

– Beverley A. on 03/02/2016

Thoroughly enjoyable Alcatraz Tour in the morning and City sights tour in the afternoon. Long day but with the short time we had in San Fran it was a great all over tour!
– Heidi J. on 03/01/2016

Pam was absolutely wonderful. She is very knowledgeable about San Francisco and surrounding area. Pam worked very hard in getting us to all our stops along the way. My son and his wife, who live in Lower Haight, were on the tour with me and my sister and Pam had a lovely talk with them about their beautiful city. Pam is a "keeper" and I would go an another tour with her.
