San Francisco Week: San Francisco Sightseeing with Retro VW Van San Francisco Love Tours


Honolulu (KHON2)- San Francisco sightseeing takes a retro turn when you it from the seat of a VW Van for a fun experience called “San Francisco Love Tours.”

Living808 hitched a ride for a colorful look at the city’s famous spots, including Golden Gate Bridge, The Presidio, George Lucas’ studio Industrial Light & Magic, and Haight Ashbury.

This groovy San Francisco tour takes you in a ’70s-era VW bus, complete with shag carpet, beaded curtains, and hippie vibes.

You ride through neighborhoods such as Chinatown, North Beach, the Mission, and the Castro, and learn fascinating facts and stories about the city’s history and culture.

You’ll drive by the homes of music legends Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix and rock out to 1960s songs in between guide’s stories.

The tour also stops at the Golden Gate Bridge for photos. 

You can book a day or night trip.

Anywhere you go, you’ll leave with a new appreciation of San Francisco and hippie vibes- Peace, Love, Freedom, and Adventure.
