Tour in Tesla Model X

“For our honeymoon we wanted an insider experience with a real local. Something different than the regular tourist day. This sounded tailored to my husband and me.  

We were so happy- it turned out to be so much more than just a tour!”

— A’rielle G.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which private tour should we choose?

For adults who are excited to make the most of their day and really get to know the city, we recommend the Best of San Francisco Tour (6hrs, which includes time for either a lovely waterfront lunch or a deeper dive into our neighborhoods).

Our Wine Country tours are perfect for adult couples and groups of friends.  We also offer a family friendly wine-country day, customized upon request.

Napa is elegant and romantic – a perfect bucket list experience for first time and repeat guests alike.  Sonoma County offers an off the beaten path, more down-home ambiance, particularly ideal for locals looking for a quick escape.

Which tours are best for COUPLES?

All of our tours are perfect for couples!

From classic city sightseeing to wine tasting, or a romantic stroll through the redwoods– any of our tours are an excellent choice.

If at any time you’re seeking a bit of extra romantic time to yourselves, feel free to let your professional local guide host know— and they’ll discreetly make themselves scarce. 😉

I’d like to create a special romantic moment for my partner, can you help?

Absolutely!  We’ve worked with many clients to make their experience EXTRA special for their “special-someone.”

We can recommend beautiful photo locations, breathtaking scenic vistas, memorable dining experiences, charming coffee shops to share a cozy-warm beverage.

We’ve even helped arrange surprise engagements and vow renewal ceremonies!

Which tours are best for groups of FRIENDS?

All of our tours are great for friend groups!

From classic city sightseeing to a wine tasting excursion, or a redwood forest hike– any of our tours are an excellent choice for groups of friends.

Our expert  local guides are here to facilitate the day so your group can focus on spending fun quality time together!

We have a large group of friends- can you accommodate a large party?

The Tesla Model X SUV seats up to 5 guests, we recommend up to 4 adults. The third row is “European style” and most comfortable for 1 adult.  We’ve had 7’ tall NBA stars in our second row Captains chairs, so most humans fit comfortably!

The Tesla Model S sport sedan seats up to 4 guests.  Three adults are seated very comfortably, with a rear middle seat available for a more petite person.

Spark Experiences are available for larger groups upon request.  Our Teslas together seat up to a maximum of 9 persons (depending on size).  Beyond that, we work with top-notch transportation partners that provide anything from large SUVs to Sprinters and full-size motor coaches.  Price upon request.

What time do tours begin?

To maximize your time and access to the best sites, the optimal start time for most tours is 9am.  Other start times may be available upon special request.

How should we dress?

Our tours are casual, so slacks, jeans and leisurewear are all perfectly appropriate.  The most important wardrobe items to pack are wind-resistant warm outer layers (year round!) and comfortable footwear for walking.

Overall, our weather is very mild and temperate, with averages in the low 60s much of the year.  We definitely recommend dressing in multiple light layers, especially for our cool ocean breezes and famous fog near the coast.

Do you pick up at our hotel or airport?

Yes, part of your Spark Experience is luxury roundtrip transportation to and from central locations within the City of San Francisco, including Downtown, SOMA, Nob Hill and Fisherman’s wharf!

We highly recommend starting all tours from your place of lodging.  We offer upgraded pickup from SFO area hotels, upon special request.  Please note that we cannot store unattended luggage or personal items or in the vehicle at any time.

Your tours are more expensive than some others, why is that?

We are very proud to offer top-notch San Francisco experiences that are FULLY private, high-caliber, and led by our engaging and attentive expert local guides.  Please see our consistent 5-star reviews on Google and Facebook!

We are also the only San Francisco Tour company where you get to spend the day enjoying gorgeous, fully-loaded TESLA Model X SUV and Model S (luxury sports sedan) vehicles.  No boring black town cars or crowded vans here!

I want you and your loved ones to have the best vacation together.

A vacation with your partner or friends doesn’t need to be stressful. Spark Experiences is my vision for what a vacation can be when all the exhausting parts are removed.

I created Spark Experiences for travelers who don’t want to get stuck in anonymous tour groups, and who want to be sure of the safety and quality of the neighborhoods and sights they’ll visit. I give my guests an experience led by a local expert who is more than just your driver, and who doesn’t follow a tour guide script.

We offer you a local friend who can’t wait to show you around, take your pictures, and offer an enriching, informative experience.

As a certified travel ambassador, it’s my mission to provide couples and friend groups with a fun and relaxing experience in this incredible city I love and call home.
