This years marks the 50th anniversary of San Francisco’s “Summer of Love.” It all started back in 1967 when 100,000 hippies from around the world gathered in SF’s Haight-Ashbury district to “turn on, tune in and drop out” as they celebrated the Summer of Love. Peace, Love, Freedom, Sex, Drugs and Rock ’n Roll – it was a crazy time!

Now… 50 years later, San Francisco is still one of the most beloved and visited destinations on the planet. If you’re looking for something fun to do with your family or friends (and want to experience a 60s hippie vibe), check out this guided San Francisco Love Tour – it’s perfect for SF natives, newbies and tourists alike!

Hop aboard a colorful 1970 VW bus, complete with neon blue seats, beaded curtains, shag carpets, and hand-painted murals on the outside, and enjoy the sights of the city as you imagine life back in the groovy 60s during San Francisco’s famed “Summer of Love.”

The fully-narrated 2-hour tour starts and ends in Fisherman’s Wharf. See famous city landmarks such as the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Haight Ashbury, the Castro and Mission Districts, Civic Center, Downtown SF, Union Square, Little Italy, and North Beach. Musical soundtracks that match each neighborhood are played on the bus as you travel throughout the city.

Listen to the sounds of the 60s as you visit the homes of music legends Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and The Grateful Dead.

This personalized small-group tour is limited to just 6 people per vehicle, making it a lot more intimate than a big bus tour. And because of its small size, the van can travel down streets where other bigger buses aren’t allowed – including Lombard’s famous crooked street.
