About Best Bay Area Tours
Hi, my name is Alan. I have lived in beautiful San Francisco for over 30 years. After coming out west from Brooklyn, New York to go to university and visiting San Francisco, I knew where I was going to spend the rest of my life. I absolutely fell in love with all the great beauty of the San Francisco Bay Area. There is so much to see and do here. When I arrived here, I spent just about every weekend exploring different places on foot, by bike or in my car. One of my first trips was to Muir Woods National Monument and the grove of coastal Sequoias (Redwoods) — the tallest trees in the world! Thirty years later, I am taking people to visit this spectacular Redwood Grove as well as to many other places I love and appreciate.
In looking for a second career, I started thinking about what I love to do: to travel, to explore and to engage people. So that’s why I created Best Bay Area Tours and why it’s the perfect job for me.
I have traveled throughout the United States, as well as to many parts of the world. I have spent time in Central America, Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, including Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia. For three months I lived in Borneo volunteering at an Orangutan rehabilitation center and wildlife refuge. I’ve visited most of the National Parks in the USA. I’ve also volunteered as a tour guide at Ano Nuevo State Park near San Francisco, which is home to a large population of elephant seals.
So it seemed like a natural move for me to create Best Bay Area Tours and become a tour guide. I absolutely love doing what I do. I get to show people from all over the world many of the wonderful sights, smells and tastes of the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s been a lot more fun than I thought it could possibly be. I look forward to seeing you on one of my tours.
