The Real SF Tour Closed Indefinitely.
It is with a heavy heart that I announce, my company, The Real SF Tour, is closing. We have a few dates through the end of October that are already booked and then we will close the doors.
I want to thank everyone who chose to spend the day with us during their visit to San Francisco. It’s possible that we took as many as 15,000 people on 80,000 transit rides. At some point I will check the numbers. We amassed close to 1000 five star reviews on travel and social media sites. We also appeared in news articles around the world.
The closure is based on a number of factors: First is a very slow season. Travel in SF appears to be way down. Then my illness, coupled with an injury that I can’t have surgically repaired until February, that will require at least six months recovery. Lastly, the Viator and Trip Advisor partnership have totally buried us. It’s all big money, big bus, big tech now.
I can’t thank all the people who worked with us, promoted us, and took our tours enough. It was truly a labor of love and I hope you had a 5 star experience. I will miss tour guiding, but I will also miss seeing the group photos of our tours, from various locations, with amazing, happy, travelers, on Facebook every day.
We do go out on high note we are still one of the top 10 highest rated tours in SF. I wish all of you all of the best on your travels. If possible we will attempt to re open in June of 2018.
