Our company, MapWest, started 28 years ago and now publishes and distributes millions of maps and visitor guides in nine languages. San Francisco Jeep Tours builds upon our years of welcoming visitors and creating memorable experiences. Our amazing staff has been delivering top-rated, guided tours in San Francisco for more than 20 years. The idea for this type of tour adventure started (mid-pandemic) in 2020. Guests told us they wanted a small, open-air vehicle for a private tour experience for their families—and Jeeps are the perfect open-air vehicle to explore varied terrain of the Bay Area.
See the San Francisco sights you want to see, at a pace that suits your group. Your friends and family will love our open-air, convertible Jeeps. Choose from 2, 2.5 or 3-hour explorations. And yes, we stop at the Golden Gate Bridge!
