Here is a review from an user.
Such an easy going group of people and super friendly! Mike is awesome- he was the point person for communication and planning. He graciously answered every question I had. I flew with Chris and he was really calm, so if someone were nervous he’d be awesome to fly with. We even got to spot some sea life! Would % do it again.
We had an incredible time with our Guide Anthony. Since we didn’t have to pick up other guests, Anthony gave us a little tour of SF and shared lots of insights that only a local knows. The wineries were all in Sonoma, Peter cellar was my favorite because of the set up of the tasting and the quality of the wines. I am pretty familiar with wine making and wine tasting, so I appreciate the fact that Peter did not spend a lot of time going into the details but let us enjoy the wine. The first winery had a nice tasting room and the host was very Knowledgeable, but the winery itself was under construction so a bit of a mess outside. The last one winery, Mayo, was pretty good. The host Richard shared a lot of great information, but I was really tired so could not fully enjoy the visit!
Great quality service, stayed with Dylan the tour guide for 3 nights for a private tour around Yosemite. I enjoyed myself immensely, some great sights on the way up which i would have never of seen if i otherwise as well as some great insight into the history and the habitat of the park. Would highly recommend the service to any other person visiting Yosemite or other areas he covers
I had two great half days venturing around the Bay Area with Bruce, covering sunrise long exposure photography. You'll get to see some great unexpected spots, (especially if you're willing to be brave and do some pre-sunrise hiking) and be given plenty of tips and techniques. I was lucky enough to have a play with the new Lee Filters ProGlass and enjoyed chasing the Fog. If you're looking to learn about Long Exposure and would like to be taught by someone with a bit of character, Bruce is your guy.
My daughter and I took Tom's tour yesterday. It was absolutely amazing! Tom knows his stuff and we loved the history behind the city's haunted past. My daughter enjoyed using the equipment the most. We were able to get some activity that we caught on tape. I would highly recommend taking this tour. Tom is funny and absolutely knowledgable.
You've got to do this! The owner Damien is a fantastic guide and instructor; he is exactly who you want to lead you. He is funny, smart, and makes sure everyone is having their best time. The day we went he was the sole instructor, they normally have two, but you would have never known if he hadn't said anything. Damien let us know this was the biggest group they've had to date, a sign of their growing popularity to be sure. My girlfriend and I will definitely be back!
Paragliding with Mark was absolutely incredible!! the view was breathtaking the ride was SO smooth and easy! take off and landing was easy!! And so fun!! Mark talked through each step and made the experience overall fun!! I was smiling ear to ear the ENTIRE time! I’m super disappointed I didn’t get to get pics while up in the sky but will try again next time! Because there will definitely be a next time!!
We were visiting California from Minnesota and decided to book a wine tour.. it ended up being our favorite day of vacation, we had a blast! The area was beautiful and the wine was fantastic. We were most impressed with Jensen. He did a great job recommending which wineries to go to and he picked a perfect lunch spot. He was super knowledgeable, professional and kind. I’d highly recommend booking with this company!
Fabulous day aboard the Gaslight! We did a business event and took clients with us. The Gaslight crew were top notch before, during and after the event. Super helpful, super professional and lots of fun! They helped us execute the event perfectly and our guests had an amazing time. The boat itself is gorgeous, clean, spacious and bright. Sail was super smooth and loads of fun. Thank you to everyone that helped make our day so great. We'll definitely be using this charter again in the future.
This food tour MADE my trip! Not only were there so many good eats but Anish was so knowledgeable about the area. We ate at 5 different places, which was the perfect amount and balance of food. Anish also went into great detail about the historical and cultural background and how it influenced the food available in the Mission district. I would definitely recommend this experience to friends and especially for dates!
“I called on a Saturday morning not knowing what to expect. We met up around 1pm. She was on time and has a very warm and friendly personality so we immediately clicked. She’s also very knowledgeable about the city and has lots of fun interesting historical facts that you will appreciate and likely not find anywhere else but her. She is very well-known in the neighborhood and clearly, also dearly loved by the local residents. The same warm hospitality is extended to her guests and I left feeling less like a tourist and more like a friend. I met some amazing and very talented people with rich illustrious histories dating back to the first settlers in the North Beach area. And then there’s the food of course. One of my main attractions to this area is the food and Blandina does an excellent job of incorporating this experience and knowledge into her tour. The area caters to all different pallets, tastes and preferences ranging from vegan, meat-lovers, seafood and even hand-baked sweet treats and delicacies as well as specialty pizzas. The time flies by and be sure to wait for the surprise gem towards the end of the tour. You’ll know it when you see it and you can’t miss it❣️”
We wanted to go to Downieville to go mountain biking for our first time, and found Norcal Flow Mountain Bike Tours on a Google Search. What a great find! Marcel was a fantastic guide, he talked to us on the phone to get our background information (skill level, fitness level, riding interests), and then made a plan for us to do a multi-day tour. He has a rental unit in Downieville that we were able to rent, so it made the whole trip super easy as well. He guided us down the -mile downhill trails with a ton of really great advice and tips about riding, and we felt safe and confident that he knew his way around and had the ability to explain what we would be expecting in every section. We didn't have to waste any time trying to figure out where to go, or what was around the next corner. Over the next 3 days, we were able to explore the high sierras and all of the amazing riding in the area. He also took some really great videos and photos, and used the videos to show us how to improve our skills. He was great about checking in to make sure we felt comfortable and safe on the terrain, and most importantly, that were always having fun! We were able to enjoy the beautiful town of Downieville, and the rental was a short walk from the river and restaurants, so it was great to finish the rides, jump in the river and then go grab a beer and sit on the porch and enjoy the view. The trip was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we hope to come back next year with a bigger group! Thank you, Marcel!
Jen and Native Moto Adventures went above and beyond and greatly increased our fun and navigation! Jen met us at the m/c rental facility to help us with minor alterations so the bikes fit us better; she gave us suggested routes and destinations for days when we didn't tour with her, and when we did tour with her, I felt confident riding with her (she has excellent skills), and she brought us on and to the most beautiful local spots we may not have found on our own. I highly recommend Native Moto!
We just got home from a trip of a life time. We can’t recommend booking with White Wolf Private Tours enough! We did a San Francisco and backpacking tour in Yosemite. Our trip was amazing and Dylan took care of every little detail. His knowledge of the city and Yosemite made the trip so personal. He even helped make sure we were prepared for our hike with packing and training tips so we could just show up and enjoy. If you want a one of kind trip to San Francisco or Yosemite don’t think twice and book with Dylan at White Wolf Private Tours.
