San Francisco is one of the most exciting cities in the world: breathtaking views, wonderful food, sparkling nightlife, diversity of people and the feeling of freedom at its best.

Jackie Grandchamps, the founder of the company, have lived in San Francisco since 1995 but first came to the city as a tourist. Therefore she knows the places tourists like to see but also the "behind the scene" life of the city. For the past 16 years, she has learnt the secrets of this fabulous city, in and out.
