Why choose an SUV tour?

Visit the four corners of San Francisco with Golden Horizon Tours! There is no need to waste time and money booking several tours with different companies as we will bring you to all of the best places, including internationally renowned sites, that even locals don't know about.

With the city's reputation as a technology hub and foodie destination, there is something for everyone to enjoy and savor on this full-day guided and custom tour.
We will provide ample photo stops, with time to buy souvenirs along the way.

We will drive up to Twin Peaks, the highest point in the city to enjoy panoramic views of San Francisco and the Bay.
