My boyfriend and I were in San Francisco
a few weeks ago. We took your wine country
tour. It was fabulous. Our tour guide Paul
He provided us with knowledge of the wine
country and San Francisco that we wouldn't
have gotten any where else. He also made
the tour very fun and interactive.
Thanks again to Paul for showing a great
time in the wine country. If I am ever in
that area again and need a tour, I will
definitely come back to Travel SF
Just a short note to say thank you for organizing
my four recent trips.
They were so well organized and I had a
great time and met some really lovely people
- it was a very important part of my holiday
and I'm very grateful to you.
By the way, the coach driver on my Carmel
trip couldn't have been nicer or more helpful
and he spoke to my cousin and they arranged
for a convenient place to drop me off -
it couldn't have worked any better.
Thank you so much, once again.
Hello. My wife, myself and another couple
we were traveling with took your wine country
tour last Sunday. I wanted to let you know
that we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our
tour guide, Paul, was one of the best tour
guides we have ever had. He was not only
extremely nice, but very knowledgeable and
informative. Thanks so much for the great
just a short note to say thank you for our
wonderful excursions in San Francisco. The
trips organised by your company were entertaining,
informative & very enjoyable. The staff
at the Jefferson St ticket office were friendly
and helpful as were all the guides and drivers.

Just a quick note to Thank-You (and especially
Fabian, our driver and guide) for the great
time we had on 4 of the tours we took advantage
of while we were in San Francisco last week
(end of September).
We experienced the Bay Cruise, The Wine
Country Tour, The Double-Decker + Alcatraz
and the Muir Woods Tour. We had a great
time. I can't imagine how it could have
been better!! Fabian was exceptionally knowledgable,
courteous, and helpful!!
We'll be mentioning you to friends who might
be heading your way!

Dear Sir /
I am writing to thank you for your excellent
service provided to our party of six on
a recent trip to San Francisco.
The city tour and the trip to Alcatraz was
great. But even better that that was the
quick, friendly and professional way that
you dealt with our initial problem.
You will be glad to hear that 'our problem'
(or 'kidnapping' as we referred to it for
the rest of our holiday) was not with your
company but with another. Namely the Gray
Line, who claimed to be your company when
they arrived at our hotel to pick up clients
to bring them to the tour start point. Both
times we asked they affirmed that they were
Instead of our next stop being the city
tour we found ourselves at the Gray line
terminal in a queue to buy one of their
tours. Luckily we had a number to call on
our print out confirming our transaction
with your company, which we insisted a Gray
Line employee called for us to explain the
Your quick staff told us to get in a taxi
and head to their office, with the assurance
that the tour would wait on us.
When we arrived at your office at Fisherman's
Wharf your staff were great. They quickly
got us organised and without being asked
after their heard our story we were re embursed
for our taxi fare.
We were glad to know we were in such good
hands before we even set out for our tour
which proved to be very full, organised
and informative. If you only had one day
in San Francisco this would be the tour
to do. Like us if you had several days it
was a great overview to get you going.
I would highly recommend your tour and your
company to anyone who asked me. As I indeed
have been since my return. Please feel free
to use our story to warn other customers
of the 'kidnap potential', and/or as a recommendation
for your company.
Thank you very much,
Dr. Claire McGonagle
