Fred, our driver and owner of dingo tours is the best! Highly recommend. He’s very knowledgeable and accommodating. Took us to everything we wanted to see and more! He even stopped for us to get a hot dog. Best 4hours of our entire trip while we were in San Francisco. Worth every penny!! We don’t like crowds and we love being driven around. This was perfect!! Please book with Fred. You won’t regret it. You might think the price is high but the value is worth it. Much better than the big tour bus. Fred is the best!!! We would book him again. Thank you for making our trip memorable!

Fred was delightful and kind. He was so flexible to the needs of our group of 3 cousins. The weather was wonderful too. He is a safe and excellent driver so we felt we were in good hands. Highly recommend!
