This was a truly great and unique trip...literally!!!! We have told so many people about this as not a traditional tourist booking for San Fran.
Our guide was wacky, kind and upbeat for the whole experience......the ideal host!!!
If you are of a certain age and want to experience again the changing times of the 60's this is for you!!!
Absolutely fantastic 'trip', enjoyed every minute of it. Much more fun than the 'normal' city tours, Tree Flower was brilliant, she really made the tour, creating a fun atmosphere. The music was great, brought back many pleasant memories.I would highly recommend the Magic Bus and look forward to 'tripping' again if ever in San Francisco.
I was really looking forward to this tour and it didn't disappoint me. We 'dropped acid' with our groovy guide, TreeFlower, and blasted back to the 60's with flowers in our hair. OK, so the 'acid' was a breath mint, doesn't matter the trip was great.
A super fun trip with a very lively guide. Great listening to all the music and seeing videos
Brilliant tour. Great mix of fun and information about SF in the 1960s. The music and fantastic guide made this a memorable trip. Highly recommended.
We took this 'trippy' trip in September, travelling with another mature couple from the U.K. We all LOVED it! Our guide, Gaiai, was brilliant! Witty, fun, exuberant, quick-witted, welcoming, fun, perfectly dressed, generous, loving, peaceful and did I mention, fun! She really cared for us, her tribe! The coach is very authentic in it's psychedelic colour schemes (inside and out), bubbles blowing out to the rest of the world, spreading the message of peace and love. The music was great, the film clips apt, amusing and sometimes also poignant and moving. The souvenir book is really good too... What a great experience! Thoroughly recommended!
set your reality aside. this trip is for lovers of the 60s hippies era from beginning to end! it was great to see the transition from old to main generational love to new edition. it was hilarious to hear the jokes and see the videos. it was a history lesson with videos from beginning to end. it was interesting to see the places and landmarks that mattered in the 1960s and now and some are the same. it was great to hear those stories intermixed with current ones. sit back, smell the flowers, sample the candies, don't freak on the 3D, enjoy the mood.
A unique way to see San Francisco in a bus back in the sixties. The staff on board may everyone welcome and the tour was informative and funny. Overall a most enjoyable tour and glad to have booked this tour.
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.
Excellent. Both the tour guide and driver made the experience groovy!! Would highly recommend.
very quirky tour, but worked very well. the extra midweek schedule did not seem well advertised and the tour organiser and leader`s efforts deserved a bigger audience than on this particular trip.
reawakened distant memories and reminded us of some serious issues as well as being `a bit of a party`
and showing us many of the interesting aspects of the city. well done.
