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.

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.

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.

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!
