We had an excellent trip, perfect for seeing the city with a toddler, plus amazing weather helped. Hopped off/on twice and found both tour guides knowledgeable, professional & entertaining. Special thanks to Nate and Renato for looking after us so well. Would recommend.

It was a great city tour with very friendly staff. It gave me an insight of San Fransisco city and knowledge about the history behind some of the buildings. It help me to pick where to go once you have an idea about the city.

There aren’t words to describe how bad this “tour” was. The “guide” had almost nothing to say about The City. He was more interested in stopping for hot dogs and beer. No kidding. Loud music instead of commentary. Truly painful.

Do not purchase this tour. The guide knows nothing about the city. They wait for you in Union Square and offer a tour at a lower price. Pay the extra for the other tour buses. It can’t be worse.

We had to wait a little over an 1 hour at the stop at The Palace of Fine Arts. We were told that the bus circulated every 30 Minutes. Then they wouldn’t pick up on either phone numbers posted on their brochure.

Good value tour around the city, but not really hop on hop off when they tell you the buses run every half hour, but you can expect to wait over an hour ‘due to traffic’. That implies the buses run every hour! The night tour...More
