Five Years Ago, Today….
“Five years ago today, the idea for San Francisco Love Tours sprouted in my head. I feel like it was just recently that the idea of creating a VW hippie bus tour company came to mind and that my brother and I picked-up our first Volkswagen bus, Love Bus, and turned it into the grooviest van in San Francisco!
I am amazed at how fast these last 5 years have passed us by. It has been one incredible experience being able to create a platform to share the places we love most about this city and the people that have made this place so vivacious — and riding in the most iconic car in history? Well that’s just the cherry on top!
During this 5-year long trip we have had the pleasure of meeting many outstanding individuals. From our tour guides to the guests, and to people that just walk up to us during tours to share their stories. This company would be nowhere near as successful if it weren’t for the people. Thank you for believing in us and trusting us with your vacations and careers.
I had the vision of making this company a staple of San Francisco, a moving monument, the keepers of wonderful stories and history that resonates worldwide. It is at this junction that I double-down my commitment to continue to build a company that will stand the test of time way beyond my time. A company that will continue to put people first, both our employees and guests, making sure they have a wonderful experience learning about the beautiful San Francisco, while making genuine connections with amazing people.
To the over 30,000 guests and our awesome tour guides – thank YOU for hitching a ride with us!”
