“Did half - interesting self-drive tour!”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

We started off on this tour, having downloaded the app. Whilst we found that it did not coincide with the road signs, we followed the tour from Japantown to the Golden Gate Bridge where we left and headed over the bridge. A very interesting concept and a great way to see SFO in every aspect.

“exciting scenic drive”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

Beyond one end of the bridge is SF and Golden Gate Park, great neighborhood to walk in, then on the other is small town Sausalito, Pacific Ocean coastline, nice regional parks. Fort Point with the huge impressive historic fort is a thrilling surprise, also a nice walk from Crissy Field or the Presidio.

“Fell in love with SF doing this”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

And want to do it all again. If you have a rental car (which I would definitely recommend for SF in general) and don't do this, it's a tragedy. Do it on a day with good weather and pack a picnic to stop at some of the little beaches along the way.

“best way to discover SF”
Reviewed 24 November 2012

Follow the bird and it will take you to the main parts of the city. If you don't have much time, this is the perfect way to discover all aspects of SF. make sure you have a co-pilot though as some signs were stolen (fashionable bird signs) so drive slow and eventually print the online map - or download it.
