This tour was a fantastic and informative was to see San Francisco. The trip to Alcatraz was definitely not disappointing, the audio tour covered everything about Alcatraz and its history. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it.
Enjoyed the tour and thought it was a very good value. Buses were clean and right on time. If doing over again, we would stay at a more distant hotel and take advantage of the bus pickup service.
We took these two tours our first full day in the city. Aaron, our tour guide for the San Francisco City Tour, was excellent! The self guided Alcatraz tour was interesting. We were glad we combined these two tours. It gave us a nice full day of activities.
This tour was fantastic. Our guide was friendly, humorous and very knowledgeable about each place we visited. He had a laid back, informal approach and this made us feel very comfortable. Snippets of information were given here and there, with the chance to talk amongst ourselves too. There was a good variety of info about places, history, geography, art, famous buildings, celebs, housing types- All interesting to a 23 year old like myself.
We stopped at a few stops and had ample time to look around. Twin Peaks gave an amazing view of the city and great photos, the Golden Gate Park drive through was also informative and lovely to see.
Our driver/guide dropped us off at Pier 39 an hour before our Alcatraz visit giving us time to see the sea lions and have a drink,
Overall, an amazing tour at a reasonable price with fantastic guides and interesting information.
My only criticism is that I wish I'd tipped him more!
Do not miss this tour, i repeat DO NOT MISS. We loved it. Must book well in advance.
Very punctual. Very informative. Very comprehensive. Totally recommended. Great value!
There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed the tour. Our driver/tour guide was informative. It was a good way to get an overall picture of San Francisco. I believe that we saw all the major attractions. You get to see everything and then make your way back to the things that interested you the most.
Excellent tour, picked up on time by very friendly guide who gave us plenty of time at each stop for taking in the sites and photo/food opportunities. Alcatraz was fantastic, everything I hoped it would be. A great and well planned tour. I highly recommend it.
This trip was wonderful. The guide was fantastic! The bus was confortable and the sights were amazing. Would recommend this to anyone coming to San Francisco who wants to see the sights. Ferry ride to Alcatraz was great and we enjoyed exploring the island.
Driver was very pleasant and did a great job!! Very good information that
we could use when we were on our own!
