We had an excellent time on the San Francisco Hop-On Hop-Off Tour. We boarded at Fisherman's Wharf and got off at many of the stops. it's a great way to get around San Francisco and not worry about parking or time. You get off where you want for as long as you want. We never waited more than 10 minutes for the next bus. The buses do tend to get crowded late in the day. This is the 2nd city I've taken a hop on hop off bus and I recommend it to all of my friends.
The commentary cannot be heard clearly sometimes because of the bus engine when you have a seat at the top back of the bus. The night tour in summer will not show you the city lights as the sun does not set till 8.30 pm. If you wish to hop off, some worthwhile sites need a bit of walking on steep roads. It is not convenient if you want to walk the GG bridge. The bus stops on the Marin County side and it would be difficult and tedious if you want to hop back on. Unless you have a two day pass, you have to take the Sausalito bus to the other side and then wait for the red line bus to go back on line. Otherwise, you have to pay for a MUNI bus to take you back to base. You have a long steep walk from the Lombard Street stop to see the Crooked Street.
Otherwise it is a fantastic way to see SF if you have limited time. For the price you pay, it is all worth it. The stops are in places of interest. I would do it again in Los Angeles.
Very informative lots of facts and information. Night Bus Tour was great fun with Arturo!
Liked the tour. However, wish they would extend the timings, either start earlier than 9am or end later than 6pm. Since San Francisco usually has traffic, we felt that we needed to rush at a certain stop so that we can catch the next bus and not miss the whole tour. Overall, highly recommended.
Staff amazing and full of energy!!! bus took you everywhere you possibly could think of,no trip to San Francisco is complete without this tour
Perfect Hop-on Hope-off tour. It gave us just enough time to enjoy the city and see the sites with wasting a lot of time trying to get around on our own. I would highly recommend this for your visit especially if your time is limed. Thank you Thank you........!!!
Excellent way to see the City in a day. I recommend sitting front row. They also provide earplugs in different languages for the tour and I found the info to be great.
We loved this tour. It was a great way to see everything on our to do list of the city!
Totally well worth it! It was my first time on the BIG BUS and having someone explain history to buildings, locations and whatnot was great!! Tons of selfies...memories made.
Drivers very polite and friendly.
they know their jobs well!
My wife, son, and I thoroughly enjoyed our Hop on-Hop off bus tour adventure in San Francisco. The tour guides presented informative and fun stories about various key sights along the way. We traveled in the open upper deck and really liked that ride across the Golden Gate Bridge. Thank you!!!
Wonderful tour of San Francisco! Recommend wearing warm clothes and a blanket, as it gets chilly on top of the bus at night. Our tour guide, Jason, was excellent!
It was a great tour. Gus was excellent, as well as all others very nice! I love the variety offered with the walking tours and everything incorporated in 2 day ticket!
We are glad we booked this tour 48 hours . Otherwise it was impossible to see all of spots which were worth seeing. Night trip was wonderful. I recommend this trip to to all who has 2-3 days to visit .
This was the best tour we have taken. Great family fun! highly recommended. Great way to see San Francisco without having to drive all over. Convenient locations for on and off boarding. Great package deal with the day, night and Sausalito tour. Also a bonus with the 7-D experience and a surprise bonus with the Madame Tussauds wax museum tickets. Definitely worth every penny! Would do the tour again.
the tour was exciting specially for us who are first timer in SF. we were able to see all major sigthseeing places in the comfort of the big bus and very professional tour guides. it gave our money's worth with a smile.
