- Go where other tour buses cannot venture
- Unique way to see San Francisco in style
An unusual guided tour of the City by the Bay, this stylish San Francisco gift experience takes you around most of the city’s key neighbourhoods and landmarks in a funky vintage Volkswagen van! Pausing for photos along the way, because of the van’s relatively small size, it can also take you down many streets and alleys that the average tour bus can’t handle, helping you to discover some lesser-known and authentic parts of San Francisco that most visitors unfortunately miss.
What will you see along the way? For starters, the former homes of famed rock stars like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead. Then there’s the Haight-Ashbury district, a focal point of the hippie movement, where a van like this would have been a regular sight back in the 60s; the iconic Golden Gate Bridge; Twin Peaks, two of the city’s highest points; the forbidding former prison, Alcatraz, and much more besides. Along the way you’ll learn how the city has been shaped by earthquakes, as well as major events like the 1849 Gold Rush, the counterculture movement, and the rise of Silicon Valley. A fresh perspective on San Francisco, and an ubercool way to see it.
