About
On this San Francisco tour, drive down the very steep and crooked Lombard Street, and around neighborhoods such as the Mission, the Castro, and North Beach without worrying about getting around or parking. Venture down streets other bigger bus tours can’t go, and get in the loving spirit the City by the Bay is well known for as you spot famous musicians’ homes while listening to classic 1960s songs.

What to expect
This groovy San Francisco tour meets at Fisherman’s Wharf. Once you greet your guide, hop aboard a ’70s-era VW bus, complete with shag carpet, beaded curtains, and hippie vibes. Your tour bus can hold up to only six passengers, so it’s an intimate experience with lots of personalized attention. As you ride through San Francisco’s colorful neighborhoods such as Chinatown, North Beach, the Mission, and the Castro, your guide tells you all about the city’s history and culture. Drive down Lombard Street and pass the homes of famous musicians such as Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. Learn about the city’s past and present during this guided tour as you rock out to classic 1960s songs in between your guide’s fun facts. Your tour also stops at the Golden Gate Bridge for a photo opp of one of the world’s most famous bridges. Your San Francisco tour ends back at Fisherman’s Wharf.

Fun tour- just the right way to see SF!
This tour was really fun. Alfred was a great tour guide and has a good sense of humor. It was neat to see SF from inside the VW. The good music was a nice addition to the experience!

Loved the Love Tour
Great tour with Roberto. VW van was awesome. We felt like we saw a weeks worth of San Francisco in a couple of hours. Very informative and enjoyable. Van seats 6 but just our family of four was on our tour. Never felt rushed. Highly recommend. Also if you are staying in San Francisco for a few days, do the tour early as it will help you decide what to do for the rest of your time in the area.

A whole new San Francisco!
We've been to S.F. before but saw a bunch of neighborhoods, places & things we hadn't previously seen, or maybe even knew of. On top of that, WE were a sight others were smiling to see. Alfred was superb, knew his stuff, & made our day!

Bad customer service
Apr 2021
We booked to holiday in California March/April 2020 but due to the Pandemic we were unable to visit. I cancelled this tour with SF Love Tours and did not and still have not received my refund even though I have emailed every couple of months and they are now re-open for business. When we reschedule our trip we certainly will not be using this company or recommending them to anyone.

GREAT TOUR!!
Apr 2021
This was a thoroughly enjoyable 2-hour tour that takes you all over San Francisco. Judith is a fantastic tour guide!! Although the theme is the 60s/Summer of Love, we learned about the history of the city from the Gold Rush days to the present. Highly recommended!!
