Make the Most of Your Time in The City How do you get to know a city, especially if time is tight? Let an SF native show you the way! This exceptionally well-crafted tour is designed to provide the maximum number of attractions in the least amount of time - perfect for those who are in town for a short stay! Avoid the crowds that can tie up the most popular sites, by using alternate, little-known routes, and by having a much more intimate or semi-private tour experience (we're limited to 14 guests, but 6-8 is the usual count). In addition to the tour itself, you'll be provided with genuinely useful recommendations, helpful tips, and suggestions to really improve the quality of your time in the City. On the way, you'll be treated to an informative and entertaining narrative by your guide, an SF native / professional actor, who has performed at Shakespeare's Globe, London. Some hotel pick-up/drop-offs can be pre-arranged at no extra cost.
