This carefully curated “Classic” San Francisco City Tour is the perfect choice if you want to experience the City in just one day. We’ll show you the very best of San Francisco sightseeing, with greater breadth and a more relaxed pace than you’ll find anywhere else. Choose between 6 and 8 hours, to maximize both your time and travel investment.

At 6 hours this tour includes many of the City’s famous locations, as well as a stop for lunch at one of our recommended restaurants.

At 8 hours this tour offers a robust panorama of San Francisco’s many diverse neighborhoods.  We can also cross the Golden Gate Bridge to enjoy a meal at one of our favorite waterfront venues boasting awesome views of the Bay, SF City Skyline and Angel Island!

Explore stylish, sophisticated San Francisco with us. You’ll walk away having seen so much more than the average visitor, and with a greater understanding of our diverse culture and neighborhoods. If you’re super short on time, our pre-curated San Francisco half-day tour could be a perfect solution. Otherwise, we’re also happy to offer a custom SF city tour catered completely to your interests and schedule.

A San Francisco Local Tour

The benefits of hiring a private tour guide are countless. But we can promise you that spending your day with Spark Experiences means you’ll have a driver, a tour guide, a teacher, and a new friend who can show you around this beloved city. Our passion for all things San Francisco never wanes…and we love to share it with visitors!
