San Francisco VW Bus Tours

SF Love Tour

Hitch a ride on a hand painted VW bus and get to know the hippie past and fun loving hipster streets of today’s San Francisco. Travel where big tour buses are forbidden.

In just 2-hours, our route with our hippie bus is meticulously planned, going through restricted streets to show you how locals enjoy this City. We make two awesome stops for iconic views and timeless pictures, one for the Golden Gate Bridge and the second for the City Skyline. Our fact-based storytelling of San Francisco’s rich history is only matched by listening to timeless tunes! Visit the homes of San Francisco’s counterculture icons such as The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, while grooving to the sounds of the 60’s and other San Francisco classics. Rated among Trip Advisors Top Things To Do, SF Love Tours and their awesome tour guides capture the hearts of guests and locals spreading nothing but peace, love and adventure throughout the streets of San Francisco.
