5.0 stars This tour was so much better than we expected. Im certain there isnt a more knowledgeable guide than Andy he made a rainy day tons of fun. We had limited time in San Francisco and learned much about the city frm him. This was an amazing one day trip, so much fun. Highly recommended. Reviewed by:Lynn H.,
