Native San Franciscan Dylan David started his small 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 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. In 2010, Dylan's brother Brendan moved back to San Francisco from Brooklyn, NY to open up our bike shop located in the heart of the North Beach district.
On both our minibus and e-bike tours, our guides aim to give a comprehensive overview of the city to groups of no more than 14 people. We feel that the small group size assure our guests are comfortable, well-looked after and are having FUN!
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.
Our guides are who make Dylan's Tours great! Check out our awesome staff below
