5 day of car hire with driver needed in San Francisco

Hi, we are coming to SF in August (hopefully) and we are looking for a reliable limo service while we are there. Before, we have used www.limos4.com, they were good, but they are not offering Cadillac Escalade at the moment. I have stumbled upon www.urbanbcn.com read some good reviews, I saw they SF-based and wondered if anyone on forum used them before?

Parking in SF is at a premium. Why the huge Cadillac Escalade when you can easily use public transport, Muni trams and buses to get around the City By The Bay!

You want to see various areas of SF simply hop on the N Judah line at 4th and King In downtown and ride it all the way out to Ocean Beach. If you were to get off at 9th and Irving you’ll find a charming set of shops, eateries, and a block walk into the vastness of Golden Gate Park.

I’ve never used a limo service but colleagues have mentioned Pleasant Limos more than once. Each saying great professional service but this was about transport from SFO into the City. Nothing about touring but worth making a call or at the very least emailing.

Good Luck

I would check with your hotel or look at Yelp reviews. I used a car service recommended by the Renaissance Club Sport in Walnut Creek, but that was 5 years ago and the name escapes me.

Ordinarily a great ride, but with the case rate of Covid-19 in SF and the inability to social distance I would not ride public transportation on a bet. As for parking? That’s the drivers problem. I like the idea of a limo with driver!

I cannot address the underlying question, but my curiosity compels me to ask why a Cadillac Escalade has to be the vehicle?

hey hey bigappler
haven't heard of urbanbcn.com, here are a couple limo service our family and friends have used.
A & H Limousine Service (AH4limo.com)
walnutcreekshuttles.com
they are both near san francisco. my questions are:
why only a cadillac escalade or just your preference and how many people/luggage
wanting as a "tour driver and guide" around the bay area, winery tours, city or coast day trips
shuttle back and forth to airport
hope you find what you're looking for

I live the San Francisco Bay Area and use Excell Limo service for primarily airport transportation ( https://excellimoca.com/). They are timely and professional. I have rented sedans, SUVs, and for a large group transport a small party bus.

Hope this helps.
