For many people San Francisco is the most beautiful city in the world. This private tour allows you to discover some of the aspects that make the city so unique and livable.
My name is Matthias Leue. I grew up in Germany, but have made California my home in 1974. I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1977 and have accumulated a lot of inside knowledge of San Francisco, which I would like to share with you. I normally conduct my tours in German, but am bi-lingual and offer an English version as well.
I invite you to discover the city with me in my Honda CR-V all wheel drive vehicle.
In planning my route, I am open to your wishes and suggestions and can enhance this with my own suggestions.
Would you like to walk the Golden Gate Bridge? No problem. Do you prefer various photogenic perspectives of the bridge? I know those too.
Are you looking for a good place to eat? How about sushi floating by you on boats? Or a good steak? San Francisco is world famous for its variety of food.
The tour was really good and informative, and we had nice weather. Thanks to Matthias Leue.
Great tour, interesting and well-chosen mixture!!! Only recommendable!
The price is way too high!!! The tour guide for SFO was very good!!!
We (married couple with three kids, age 5-15) took to our German-speaking guide Mr Leue immediately. He took our wishes into account and showed us some special places of San Francisco which are not so well-known, for example the houseboat estate of the former hippies in Sausalito or the nursing ward for injured or sick marine creatures. He told us a lot of anecdotes and we all enjoyed these exciting four hours. Again, thank you so much!!
Very good, kind, informative. Would always recommend it.
Mr Matthias Leue showed us HIS city in a very interesting and detailled way which you won't get with a normal sightseeing tour with a lot of other tourists. Moreover, we go a lot of varied information which were very useful and educational. THANK YOU!! We will highly recommend this tour with Mr Leue through San Francisco.
It was just brilliant. We want to thank Mr Matthias Leue again for this great tour he designed for us.
Thank you for this great tour, Mr Leue!
... special wishes, like postponing the tour to a different starting time, were taken into account, just like some other needs regarding the planning of the tour. Thank you again for your immediate answers to my emails.
Mr Leue is a very likeable and highly competent guide. We already recommended him. Kind regards from the Otto family.
Great. Highly recommendable. Takes individual wishes into account. Anytime again.
Everything was okay - very kind.
We were very sparked by the way the tour was done and the personal commitment of the guide.
We all enjoyed the tour; we did see a lot of places we wouldn't have seen otherwise. The guide was great as well.
If you want to see not only the highlighty, but also those places of the city you normally won't see as a tourist, this tour is perfect.
A very enjoyable tour guide. Small group (2 couples) and individual wishes weren't a problem (walk over the Golden Gate Bridge). Very informatve. Anytime again.
This tour with the kind Mr Leue can only be recommended. We were in SF before and knew the main sights of the city and didn't understand everything in English, we booked this tour (Sept./Oct. 2012). Mr Leue made a real effort and showed us places we didn't know, e.g. the house boats in Sausalito, Japan town, Lombard street. The atmosphere was very causal and nice and we did get a lot of tips. This tour was a very great start of a marvellous time in San Francisco. If he would offer some other tours as well, we would've participated in them as well. The value for money is okay if you look at it in comparison to the tours for the mass; this was very private and good. We want to thank Mr Leue by heart. Anytime again, who knows... Kind regards from two very satisfied travellers from the south of Hessen
Our guide Mr Leue showed us San Francisco and surroundings perfectky, safely and competently. Highly recommendable!
We were very satisfied. Mr Leue is highly recommendable.
very good insider tips
Matthias Leue did a very competent tour through the city and made it possible for me to see the important sights inspite of my severe lim. I gladly recommend him and his very relaxed character.
It was a very interesting tour with Matthias Leue. Thank you for the individual support
The car (small Honda ATV) is much too small for four grown-ups and the driver (5 persons over all). Due to the Internet presence, we expected a bigger US-ATV with a lot more internal space, as it can be seen on the pictures. The stay at the boat houses is too long, instead more Old Town buildings should be shown (like the beautiful, old, newly painted Sisters) and there should be more stops for taking pictures. This criticism is to be evaluated as constructive and positive! Besides that, Mr Leue does a really good job! Thank you for that!
We did see things which we would not have seen without this city tour. Mr Leue took our special wishes into account. We had a very pleasant afternoon. If we will ever be back in SF, we surely will book Mr Leue again.
Unfortunately no professional, very nice, but too less competence and talked very little, we had to ask for everything.
Even though we have been in San Francisco before, the tour was very exciting for us, because we saw spots you don't visit during a standard sightseeing tour. The tour by Mr Leue was very nice and competent.
