A friend recommended Five Emerald, which I have used for transport to SFO. The service is prompt, professional and reliable. The Lincoln Town Car was immaculate and the driver was altogether charming. What a great way to get to and from the airport.

My wife and I needed a few days away. After booking the flights and hotel I went looking for limousine company. We were lucky enough to find Five Emerald.

The owner, Ira, was our driver. He called when our flight landed and confirmed the meeting instructions. Had the car promptly there and gave us very useful data on the way to the Plaza Hotel. He also personally picked us up and took us back to the airport (On time I might add) and asked how our visit to San Francisco was I would highly recommend both Ira and Five Emerald for anyone wanting a personal and professional car and driver. You may rest assured that when we return to San Francisco we will give him a call.”

“This company is owned by a warm and caring man who takes great pride in what he does– getting people from one place to another, on time and in style.”

“I’ve used several car services over the last decade and I have been extremely happy with Five Emerald Limousine. After scheduling service six times over the past few months between my home and SFO, I’ve found the drivers to be very professional and on time. Also, all of vehicles are extremely clean and upscale. I won’t bother with a taxi or Uber after receiving personalized and friendly service from Ira, President of the company. He provides a seamless experience that allows me to schedule a ride in advance either online or via phone. I like the ability to pay ahead of time with gratuity included, so when I’m on my way to the airport I don’t have to worry about having cash on hand. I also like how the drivers pick me up curbside at SFO upon a quick phone call, so I don’t have to walk to short term parking. Very convenient!”

“We got wonderful service from Five Emerald Limousine. Ira picked us up just a few minutes after we called to tell him we were ready. He was incredibly friendly and offered tons of suggestions for places to visit and eat in San Francisco. The car was immaculately clean. The car seat he had for our son was also spotless. He offers so much more than just a ride to your destination. When we visit San Fran again we will definitely be using Five Emerald Limo. A+!”

“Five Emerald Limousine is the best in bay.  I have used them several times and are very reliable.  Ira is fabulous, prompt and courteous.  I have used other services in the past and Ira’s services do not compare, he is above the rest.  Can’t wait to utilize his services again very soon.”

“Best service in the Bay Area!  We were lucky enough to be picked up by Five Emerald on rainy night.  The service is very professional and timely.  I have used the service 6 or so times since and will continue to use this service as long as I am in the Bay Area.  I HIGHLY recommend this service.  Service to the airport is perfect (they even have fresh cold pineapple juice!).  My mother in law will be visiting in two weeks and we are going to try out the private tours – looking forward to it!  It truly is a five emerald experience!”

“I’ve been to SF many times and this trip I was taking my 14 year old niece and her friend for their first time in the city.  I decided we needed to go in style since they are from a desert town and found Five Emerald limo service on Yelp.  Ira, the owner,responded immediately to my email and arranged to pick us up at SFO.  He was on time, dressed professionally and assisted us into his very clean and shiny black town car. He made sure we had bottles of water for the day. The girls were impressed.

Not only is he a private driver but he conducts private tours as well.  Since we arrived early, he suggested we go to Alamo park in SF for a fabulous view of the city, perfect for picture taking. He waited patiently for us as the picture taking began and explained the area to us. A nice perk to start our adventure in this gorgeous city.

He then dropped us off near the cable car stop at Powell and Market and told me to call anytime during the day if we had questions where to eat or what to visit.
After our big day of sight seeing and tired, we decided to call him and have him drive us around before our late flight home. For about an hour he drove us through Golden Gate park, Castro district and Haight Ashbury.

We all felt comfortable with him and he made us feel special on this teenage “right of passage” trip.  Next time I come to San Fran, I’ll use Ira to drive me from SFO to the city and forget those crazy shuttle drivers and BART!”

“I live and work in San Francisco and go out often to all kinds of events. With that, I need a company that provides reliable and affordable transportation service. Something that is also very important to me is good customer service, promptness and reliability. I finally found a company that provides excellent limo and town car service. Five emerald always shows up on time and I can always rely on them.

I recently went on a vacation and needed a ride to the airport and I called on them. Not only was my driver 15 minutes early, he made my trip to the airport very pleasant and fun. I highly recommend them for future transportation whether it be for corporate events, nights on the town or just a quick drop off anywhere!”

“If you need a limo or town car service in SF then look no further than Five Emerald Limousine Company.  You wont meet anyone more reliable, personable, efficient or friendly than Ira. Ira offers complimentary soft drinks and lots of local knowledge/recommendations­. We would not hesitate to use him again.”

Julia Lassen


“My sister-in-law and I came to San Francisco to enjoy a girls getaway.  We booked Five Emerald Limousine for a roundtrip from and to the airport.  The company’s owner, Ira, was our driver and he was so courteous and friendly.  He was five minutes away when we called him after we picked up our luggage at SFO. We also booked a seven hour tour to the wine country,

He also provided tips on where to eat and visit while on our trip.   He was punctual each time and he understands what it means to provide excellent customer service.  It is very obvious that Ira takes his business very seriously, but with a smile and a great attitude.  We wish you well in this business and hope to see you again on a return trip to San Francisco.

Five Emerald Limousine is excellent!!”

“I just returned from a trip back east. My roommate had found Five Emerald Limo as her car service a couple of weeks back and highly recommended that I use the same company. I’m certainly glad I listened to the recommendation! Like other reviewers have mention Ira was prompt with pick up times, professionally dressed and assisted me into his own plush town car. I booked him for my return pick up as well can was glad to know that I had such a reliable service ready to go for my return. He provides friendly and reliable transportation. My roommate and I plan to use his company for any upcoming trips, transportation for visiting friends, or any time his company may be useful for us! Thanks Ira!”

“As new parents we don’t get out like we used to.  When we found out that Coldplay was coming to the Bay Area , I jumped at getting tickets, not really thinking about how we would get to the HP Pavilion and back considering we live in the East Bay and we both like to get our drink on.  As this was close to our anniversary, my husband and I decided that maybe a car service was a good idea (far more romantic than ro-sham-boing over who is going to drive home).  Enter Five Emerald Limousine and our courteous driver, Ira.   After calling about 10 companies, Ira came through with the best price and certainly the most professional demeanor on the phone.  We arranged to have him pick us up and he got to our home 15 mins early (he told us that he would but that he wouldn’t start the time until our booking time).  We had a very pleasant journey to the concert and he was very flexible when we called to tell him that they were going on later than planned.  All in all we had a GREAT experience with Five Emerald Limousine and we absolutely plan on using them in the future.”

“I used five emerald to get to Stanford on a medical interview since i live in the city and don’t have a car. Ira picked me up in this amazing town car, it was very comfortable and i was on time. On top of that, it was cheaper than taxi! Amazing service! thank you Ira!”

Erin Fry


“I have used Ira and his company quite a few times now. The driver is always prompt and friendly. I always safe when I was Ira’s town car service. I have used other companies but no one compares to Ira’s customer service. It’s rare when you find a owner who actually wants to ensure and cares enough that you have a wonderful experience every time. I will be a lifelong client of Ira and will continue to refer him to all those in need of a town car. Ira is by far the best town car service in the Bay Area. Look no further use Ira fro all your driving needs, he is the best!!”

Spencer Cross


“Found Ira/Five Emerald Limo quite by accident. glad i did!!!! Ira was professional and prompt when making reservations for Airport transfers to and from SFO.  He Also drove us to the Wine Country for the day.  What a blast.  I asked him about going to Twin Peaks on the way to the hotel after pickup and he took the time to take us to see the views of SF from the peaks.  Unplanned but he did it without problems.  I would recommend his services and can’t wait to go back to visit the area and will be certain to call Ira for transportation.  Water was provided for the rides. This was a trip with Mom and 2 daughters, Very safe and going in style!”


Vanessa Morris


“My boyfriend and I recently decided to take a car service to the airport.  This was our first time and a splurge.  We chose Five Emerald and couldn’t have been happier.  They were ‘on the dot’ on time.  When we arrived back at SFO after our trip I got a text from the driver and a call from the dispatcher making sure I got the text.  Very thorough.  Both of our drivers were very nice and very professional. We came away  thinking that using Five Emerald might not be a splurge anymore, it may become our modus operandi.”

“Thanks yelpers for helping us find Five Emerald Limousine. I booked their yelp deal a couple weeks before we were going to SF. I emailed them our itinerary and they responded by phone, text and email within a couple hours. It was so simple. When we arrived we were texted instructions to call our driver when we got our bags. When I called the driver he was there in less than 5 minutes. The driver was very professional in a suit, helped us with our luggage and opened doors. The town car was great. Extremely clean, lots of legroom and super soft leather seats. The ride was longer than expected due to rain and early morning rush hour but we didn’t care. Bottled water was provided and we got to our hotel with no problems. No payment issues to worry about since we booked through Yelp. What a great way to start our vacation.”
