A new and unique SF tour service called Vantigo is offering personalized tours of the city from the back seat of the cutest vehicle I've ever seen. Husband and wife founders, Erik and Amy Hormann both have VW vans in their blood. According to their website, Erik's family has owned more than 25 Volkswagons and both sets of parents have owned and named campers and vans in their past, including one named Rootbeer that was brown with a white top. Before you fly into a jealous rage over how stinking cute that is, remember that the Hormanns created their Vantigo tours to share the experience of cruising around SF in such a special ride with as many folks as possible.
The beautiful van you see above is named Lillie after Lillie Hitchcock Coit and is available for tours and charter services. She can hold up to six guests. You can even personalize the tour you'd like to go on to accommodate your interests in coffee, beer, wine, or whatever. The tours are designed to encompass all of the senses, and include epic SF playlists and stops for tasting and smelling tasty snacks. Let's be honest, you've been sold since you saw that picture of Lillie bombing Lombard Street. Get booking, San Francisco.
