In February 2013 Erik and Amy combined their lifelong love of Volkswagen vans with their love of all the Bay Area has to offer, and Vantigo was born. Today Vantigo is on the road offering everything from City, Beer and Wine tours, to wedding charters and large scale company outings. We strive to fill the niche for people who want to do touristy things without feeling like a tourist. We strive to create the perfect California experience for guests, whether that means exploring San Francisco’s storied neighborhoods, cruising Highway 1 in search of craft beer or sampling pinot in the Sonoma sunshine. We are licensed and fully insured under the CPUC TCP#31265

While it’s a fun play on words, it also speaks to our philosophy. These are not the typical city tours that play recorded information to passengers on a big bus. Instead, we pick you up in a beautifully restored Volkswagen van and offer a more lively, lighthearted and authentically personal experience. We go with you – and we share our favorite San Francisco sites, stories, restaurants and pastimes, so that you can experience the Bay like a local.
