Lots of Sights in Little Time!

“We had a blast going through the town and you see a lot of sights in about half a day!

The ride across the Golden Gate Bridge is just marvelous and the guides and the drivers do a great job.

A big shout out to our driver Ray, our guide Doug and the trainee Coco who did the first 12 stops today for the first time. Great job everyone!”

Team Blake!

“I just got back from SF and I have to say although I stayed there for a very short time, I had a blast and Blake was a big part of it. We “Team Los Angeles” as he named our group had a great time on the bus. Blake was very informative, fun and enthusiastic. He made jokes, played games and he even sang a few songs. Some of them made up 🙂

I want to mention and thank our driver too but I can’t remember his name.

Anyways, If you get on Blake’s boss you won’t regret it. Team Blake Rocks!”
