About Dylan’s Tours in San Francisco

Native San Franciscan, Dylan David, started his small San Francisco bus tours company – Dylan’s Tours – after traveling the world for many years. Eager to share a local’s perspective to those visiting the Bay Area, Dylan started giving San Francisco tours out of his own car, an “old soccer mom minivan.” Over the years, he’s grown the business into a multi-minibus operation that offers intimate small group tours through San Francisco, Sausalito, Muir Woods and Alcatraz. 

On both our minibus and San Francisco bike tours, our guides aim to give a comprehensive overview of the city to our small groups. We feel that the small group size assures our guests are comfortable, well-looked after and are having FUN! From biking the Golden Gate Bridge to hiking in the Muir Woods and to Official Alcatraz Tours – we have a tour for everyone! Our tours are perfect for those who want to see San Francisco in a day!

Each of our tour guides are Bay Area locals who love their city. From in-depth knowledge of San Francisco to the best restaurant recommendations, they are energetic and invested in making each tour special.
