Armando was an excellent guide during our excursion in SF. Saw many sights and learned much about the history. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who want a condensed overview on the highlights of this beautiful city. I love SF and will return at the next chance I get!

We did a recent painted ladies tour. Josh was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and had a friendly manner. Felt very safe during tour with the current Covid health protocols. The Camper Van was so cool and authentic. It was also very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed seeing the various sights around the City. Highly recommend Painted Ladies Tour Company.

We loved Traveling all over San Francisco in that darling pink bus named Rosie. Sami was our tour guide. She was funny, informative, and never stopped giving us information throughout the whole tour. So many tours I’ve been on the tour guide seems to just quit participating the last hour or so. But not Sami, she just kept us going and laughing and enjoying the city. She brought a new light and a new understanding to this city by the bay. Even though this was not a private tour, the bus only holds about seven people. So it felt semi private. Plus it gave us an opportunity to meet nice people from other states that were enjoying the tour as much as us. The bus is definitely old. It’s an original from the 70’s. So if you’re looking for comfort this is not for you. But if you’re just looking for a lot of fun, this is it.

We truly enjoyed our private tour with Daisy (VW van) and Armando (our awesome guide) around San Francisco. It was a rainy day and yet this has been an interesting, authentic and fun few hours for all the family! Thank you Armando!

Sam and Rosie led us on a lively tour around SF and we were enchanted. Sam is not only a competent driver but a great, funny tour guide with tunes to guide us up and down the hills of San Francisco. It was great fun to wave at people taking our picture as we cruised along.Thanks, Sam, for a fun, informative three hours!

Armondo was one of the BEST tour guides! He was so knowledgeable, personable, and interesting! We enjoyed seeing some SF sights we had already seen with a fresh perspective and marveled at several new places such as the Fine Arts Palace, Lombard Street, and Twin Peaks. We extend a heartfelt thanks to Armondo for making our day a VERY memorable one! We highly recommend this tour and Armondo!!
