/PressCable/ — San Francisco City Tour in a Love Bus
The idea of a 1972 VW Bus with big bay windows was the original inspiration for San Francisco Love Tours. Allan hunted for such bus for quite a while, and when he learned that one particular bus had been a family vacation vehicle for years, creating many wonderful childhood memories, he knew it was the one with the right soul and spirit. Even though the orange paint was faded and the engine needed to be completely rebuilt, that “Love Bus” had the true family history of peace, love, freedom and adventure.
After he got the bus up and running, Allan spent weekends taking friends and family around the city, often making new friends along the way. Sunday mornings were spent hanging out at Dolores Park, a park that is always abuzz with locals.
One day at Dolores Park, an artist and fellow VW enthusiast was chatting with Allan and Roberto. Allan asked her if she could paint some artwork and murals on the exterior of the bus, and her efforts resulted in a breathtakingly beautiful and unique creation. Her murals decorate all the buses now, and they are widely recognized throughout the San Francisco City.
Sunshine Bus: “Here Comes The Sun”
The beautiful bus is believed to bring good luck to all who enter because of the story on the way it was acquired.
Back when the brothers were first dreaming and planning for their tour company, they spent a lot of time discussing their ideas with everyone. Anyone can note during the tours that the Graves brothers definitely have a gift for gab! And thank goodness they do, because Roberto’s persuasive story about his dream for a San Francisco City Tour company is what helped him win a contest where the main prize was this1976 VW Bus!
That bus is now warmly called the Sunshine Bus because when it arrived, it was already emblazoned with the tagline, front and center on the windshield:”Here Comes The Sun” Brilliant.
