Wow thanks Georgetowngal. I didn't know that the VIA could get me there. I will check there and the trolley tours. Thanks so much ;-)

My son recently moved to SA. I wanted to tour the city while he was working. VIA is great. You can even call them up and ask how to get somewhere. I was able to get everywhere I wanted between the trollys and the buses. I highly recommend the hop on/off trolly. Take it all around once just to see what you are interested in seeing. Then you can get off and the sites. Mission San Jose was amazing. Enjoy the city!
