Our guide “Tree-Flower” welcomed us with a flower for our hair, and remained in character as a time-travelling hippie for the entire tour. Great acting job! The tour was both entertaining and educational. It not only covered Haight-Ashbury and the Summer of Love, but the broader background of the hippie movement in San Francisco and its context in history.

Groovy. What a fun way to visit (or revisit) the 60's era in San Francisco! The tour was very informative and entertaining, never a dull moment. The guide was a treat, who gave us treats! The bus was magical!

The 60's was a unique time in our national history and so much of the social activity at that time took place in San Francisco. Riding the Magic Bus through Haight-Ashbury and Golden Gate Park wearing a flower in my hair and listening to Janis Joplin made my SF visit complete. Just ride the Magic Bus! It's a trip, man.

It was great, but I think if they stopped at Haight - Ashbury and let people check out some of the stores and the area say for 30 to 45 minutes it would be even better!

Gaya our tour guide was fantastic. So full of energy. I loved the tour. I wish they had gone a little slower or even stopped in the Haight Ashbury area as the history their was very good and it seemed like it went a little fast through there. This tour would've been five stars if there had been more people on board. Overall, we really loved it and would recommend it for anyone interested in the history of the 60s.

The pick up location is vague. Given an address but no actual storefront or kiosk. The pick up location is on the street where other tour buses pick up and drop off. The other companies had representatives waiting at the curb. Our Magic Bus was running late, kind of had to guess where to be for pickup. Could have had a rep with Magic Bus there to guide people instead of wondering what is going on. Once we got on the bus it was a fun ride. One stop was made at the conservatory. Would have been nice for the bus to stop at Haight Ashbury and check out a few shops and look around. Guide and driver were lots of fun. Overall I would recommend this tour but could use a few improvements.

This was cheesy....did not enjoy. Thought we would at least stop in Haight/Ashbury - did not.
There were only7 people on the bus and I can see why.
