Three funs ways of returning to San Francisco on your own:

 

Ferry back to San Francisco for stunning views

Bike across the world famous Golden Gate Bridge

Uber or taxi back to the city - quick and efficient, 1-4 people

Here are the places we will explore (photo stops noted by *):

Fisherman’s Wharf

One of San Francisco’s most popular destinations – from beautiful old shipyards, to Boudin’s Bakery and the legendary sea lions, Fisherman’s Wharf has it all.

Marin Headlands*

Offering a stunning perspective of the Golden Gate Bridge with downtown San Francisco in the background, this awe-inspiring view is the perfect place to capture a memorable photo.

North Beach – Little Italy

Voted as one of the USA’s “ten great neighborhoods”, North Beach is best known as the home of Little Italy. With delicious restaurants, bakeries and cafes, it is not to be missed!

Chinatown

Boasting the largest Chinatown in the United States, this 24-block mecca is bustling with energy, amazing food, and unique and colorful shops that give this area its charm.

City Hall

This beautiful Beaux-Arts monument epitomizes the high-minded American renaissance of the late 18th and early 19th century. The site of Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn Monroe’s marriage in 1954.

Twin Peaks*

Featuring a panoramic view of all of San Francisco, Twin Peaks offers ones of the best perspectives of the downtown skyline, surrounding hills and vistas (weather permitting).

Haight Ashbury*

The origin of the hippie culture and the birth place of the “Summer of Love.” From the stunning Painted Ladies to the homes of music’s favorite 60’s bands, this district started the counter-culture movement across the USA.

The Mission*

Known for its prominent and colorful mural installations, delicious food, and vibrant art and music scene, The Mission embodies the culture of old and new San Francisco.

The Castro

One of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the USA. Colorful bars & restaurants line the streets, with the historic Castro Theater overlooking the area Harvey Milk called home.

Pacific Heights*

Offering one of the most scenic outlooks in all of Northern California, Pacific Heights is home to Billionaire’s Row, featuring the estates of politicians and tech titans.

Golden Gate Bridge

Declared “one of the 10 wonders of the modern world,” the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most recognized symbols of San Francisco. Simply stunning!

Sausalito*

Located just across the Golden Gate Bridge, this artistic enclave has the setting and beauty of a European Mediterranean town. Enjoy your lunch on the San Francisco Bay!

Presidio

Former military base, now a beautiful park that includes Crissy Field, Fort Point, Lucasfilm’s (George Lucas) headquarters and the Walt Disney Museum.

Fort Point*

Located just beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Point gives you a front row seat to the San Francisco Bay. This former military fortification was used during WWII.

Tenderloin

Nestled near downtown San Francisco, the Tenderloin neighborhood continues to resist gentrification, all while spearheading the local arts movement.

 

Where To Meet

Have questions? Here are the most frequently asked.

Why choose Dylan's minibus tours?

1. Small Groups:
With Dylan’s, you aren’t just a number. Our minibuses are the perfect size to make sure you are comfortable, well looked-after, and are having FUN!

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

3. Great Value
Our minibus tours are priced to give our guests a tour of the best neighborhoods in San Francisco and, for our Dylan’s Famous + Muir Woods Tour, over an hour in Muir Woods. We like to think of it as 2 tours in 1!

4. 100% Refund Guarantee:
Change of plans? Feeling under the weather? We are happy to refund your entire tour with 24 hours advance notice.

5. Independently Owned:
We aren’t one of the big bus companies, and it shows. Dylan’s is owned and operated by San Francisco native Dylan David.

6. Your Experience is our Top Priority:
From our convenient meeting location to each stop on your tour, our goal is to make your tour fun and enjoyable. We have thought of the small things so you don’t have to.

Which minibus tour should I take?
Are the minibus tours child friendly?
What is your cancellation policy?
What should I bring with me on the minibus?

San Francisco’s dress code usually warrants at most a sweatshirt or a light coat. Drinks and snacks are welcome on the bus and we encourage our guests to pack a lunch. Food and beverages can be purchased along the tour as well. A camera is also highly recommended.

Can I bring my luggage?

Since we use small buses to keep the tours intimate, we cannot accommodate luggage. However, anything that you’re comfortable having on your lap or under your legs is fine with us.

Do I need to bring my booking confirmation to get on the bus?

No, just bring yourself! The booking invoice is mainly for your records. To board our bus, we just need the first and last name of your party.

“The minivan was not packed with too many tourists as on some other tours.”
