Wow best bus tour ever. Takes you back to the sixties, which I loved as I wasn't even born then, so anyone who was I am sure will love it even more. The guys who run the tour are totally in to the spirit of it all, its a timewarp fantasy i definately recommend. Great stop at Golden Gate Park, great music and history lessons. I most definately recommend this tour, be prepared to change your name, and enjoy the peace and love.

She was most enthusiastic and did a great job despite a loss of power at the later stage. She offered a refund which was not necessary.
Wow, it took me back to the 70's when I lived in SF singing along to the music. The tour guide was fantastic with her rose coloured glasses and vintage clothing, the tour was a "trip"
Golden Gate park even looked the same except the Hippie's have been replaced by the homeless people, but with some imagination you can pretend it's the same as it was back then. Highly recommend this one if you're over 50 years old. My 23 year old daughter struggled to understand what it was all about but she went along for the ride and particpated with the vibe of the tour
Peace,love and grooviness abound on the magic bus, whose window shades work like eyelids.
All baby boomers need to take this walk/ride down memory lane; 1967 the summer of love. Absolutely enjoyed it to the max. Enjoyed the singing, the memories and the tour gal, Ms. A...she was awesome! I plan another trip with other friends in Sept 2013; will book this tour again. Hip hio hoorah for the bus driver too! Nice guy; great driver. Donna, Spfld, IL
This was an enjoyable trip back to the day. Lots of background info not commonly know on the city events of the time. Our 15 year old daughter loved it and we did too. The tour guides were a trip, very enjoyable, and and totally cool.
The people coordinating this tour put a lot of effort and thought, more than any other tour I have ever been on, into making this tour the very best possible for the visitors. From receiving a flower for our hair to the very professional souvenoir 3-D booklet, everything was well-planned, easy to understand and fun. My 17yr old son said this was the highlight of our 3+ days in SF. It is innovative, upbeat and informative.
The Magic Bus Tour is unique. Fantastic entertainment and a real insight into the politics and culture of the 60s. Enjoy using your imagination and join in the sing-a-longs. A shame it's not advertised more - people are missing out!
The Magic Bus was a hoot. The guide was terrific and fun. This is a multi-media tour that is very well done. You certainly have to "play along," but please do -- and enjoy a trip back in time to the time that the Beats were hip and the Summer of Love was magic. If you lived the era, it's a fun trip down memory lane -- if you're too young to remember, it's a fun history lesson.
WELL I WAS SO SURPRISED, AND DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT, BUT WITHOUT ADOUBT A TOUR THAT TOOK YOU BACK IN TIME, AND NOT TO BE MISSED.THANK YOU VIATOR
Groovy. What a fun way to visit (or revisit) the 60's era in San Francisco! The tour was very informative and entertaining, never a dull moment. The guide was a treat, who gave us treats! The bus was magical!
The 60's was a unique time in our national history and so much of the social activity at that time took place in San Francisco. Riding the Magic Bus through Haight-Ashbury and Golden Gate Park wearing a flower in my hair and listening to Janis Joplin made my SF visit complete. Just ride the Magic Bus! It's a trip, man.
My Grandson 16y/o and I LOVED the Magic Bus Tour. we came home and watched "The 60's " movie and loved revisiting the history of that incredible time. Thank you soooo much.

It was a wonderful tour. We both enjoyed it. I have told about six people how great it was. Your staff were a delight and when we get back to San francisco we will most likely take it again.
Only complaint, the seats are not very comfortable. Thank you for a great few hours,

This was a fun tour with a high energy guide. I recommend this tour, not only for the novel concept but also for what you learn. It is important that you are prepared to participate to maximise your enjoyment.
