I was truly thankful to have booked this tour! I was only in San Fran for 3 days and this tour helped me get in as much sightseeing and unforgettable experiences in a short time. The walk on the bridge was breathtaking, with just enough time to get a history lesson, before completing the rest of the bridge on your own leisure. The hop on/off bus was a fantastic way to see the city, and explore the places I wanted to see in more detail. I loved it so much that I ended up purchasing the Alcatraz tour on my last day. All of the tour guides and staff of the Super Sightseeing tours were friendly, informative and helpful. Highly recommended!

Excellent ! That bridge is just something else. And 75 years ago, no computers !!!!! Shows what can be done.
Alcatraz - excellent tour, but I'm just glad I never had to stay there. Was relieved to board the ferry back to "normal".

I would recommend this tour to everyone. Our young guide was knowledgable and interesting. I'm hoping that after this anniversary year, the tours will continue.

This was great. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly and personable. The only thing I might suggest is that you warn people that the temperature will be MANY degrees colder than down in the city. My grandson and I were VERY COLD, but the tour was Soooo worth it, that we still enjoyed it immensely.

We chose your hop on and off bus tour on the web for the convenience of the added Park Ranger tour of Golden Gate Bridge. Good idea. However, it was NOT convenient to have to go to your office to get that ticket. Compared to some other bus companies we felt that yours did not come as often AND since your next to last return bus (around 5:00pm) from the Bridge to Union Sq had no inside capacity many of us FROZE in the September chill. One of the bus guides was good (about neighborhoods and movie connections)and funny and one hard to understand (I am an American/ native speaker of English)--neither had any historical/architectural knowledge. The Bridge was great. Peg, Tokyo

My boyfriend and I recently booked a few San Fran excursions through Viator. We really enjoyed the time we had and the itinerary was really easy to follow. The tours were great!

Enjoyed Alcatraz and the tour. The hop on and off bus was very convenient and saved us time and headaches regarding traffic and parking. However, we had to wait almost one hour for a bus at the bridge and had to sit on a bus after it broke down. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful and tried to make the best of a bad situation.

My trip was great except for a lady named Chelsea at the Golden Gate Bridge tour. When went to check in, she ignored us while talking to someone else about personal business. This conversation lasted over fifteen minutes. Chelsea didn't look at us or acknowledge our presence. When she did let me know we were in the right place, she told us she was going to be our guide. My girlfriend and I left because we didn't want to waste our day with someone so rude. With that said, Willie from super sightseeing tours was great! We were lucky to catch his bus both days we had tickets for. He was hilarious! We laughed the whole time on his bus. He pointed out a restaurant we tried later that day and second we tried before leaving San Francisco. I would definitely book a trip with you again minus Chelsea.

As part of this tour, we also did the on and off again trolley as well as the Bay Aquarium and the walk on the bridge. The on and off again trolley was good, drivers were informative. They had less trolleys running than they should have for a Sunday so didn't feel like we could get off or we there may not be room for us to get back on. It was an amazing thing to walk on the bridge (which you can do on your own but would not have the guided tour part of it). A National Park Service employee led the tour. She was very informative but equated all the information given to a "battle being fought". That was a little hoakiie but still well worth doing. Be sure and wear warm clothing-very, very windy on the bridge. We did end up paying for a cab to get back to our hotel other than to ride the trolley for another 1 1/2hrs. around to the wharf. So if you book the Golden Gate Walking Tour better to do in a.m. on your way around since it is stop #6. The Aquarium was small but nice. You do not have to use the ticket the same day, which they did not tell us. The ticket we were given was good until Dec. 31st so we actually went the next day since it was drizzling rain. It was a good indoor activity. I think you save money by booking all together but you should probably check it out in case you really don't want to do all three.

Not happy! The cost was not equal or less. It was more than if I would have done it myself.. It did get us to Alcatraz $28.00 with ferry included per person. The Golden gate bridge. $12.00 a person. Hop on and off bus $48.00 for two days. Lots of discount coupons for that . As well as the $16.00 tickets to the Aquarium that we didn't use .. Tours were great ! .Hop on and off bus 30 minute wait most times we just walked to the next thing or took a local bus. The people on the hop on and hop off were good speakers .
