Jace (Sundog) was great- funny with good pace and willingness to answer questions- great knowledge of the plant life in the park and good enthusiasm and sense of humor about the people and the history of the park. It was probably my 20th time there and I know more about than ever before.

Awesome 1.5hr tour with fun and informative guide Jordan. An hour and a half taking in way more of San Francisco than I thought we would, learning facts and history about the city and seeing parts of it we may never have found ourselves. Very patient tuition, bit scary at first, but we all loved it so much - two teenage girls and hesitant parents thoroughly recommend this tour and Company.

Kelly was our guide on the Golden Gate Park Segway tour and he was awesome! He was fun and informative, and took great care to make sure we were all comfortable and safe and having a great time! He was patient and encouraging through our training, especially since we were all beginners, and he made the tour a fun and positive experience, we learned a lot about San Francisco and the Golden Gate Park that we never knew before. We highly recommend taking the tour, and if you are lucky enough to get Kelly as your guide, you won't be disappointed! Just a great way to see the park. We are looking forward to booking another tour to see the other side of the park.
