What You Can Expect

San Francisco Fire Engine Tour

Join the Fire Brigade on This Fun Tour of the City

Meet your guide at Fisherman's Wharf to begin your San Francisco fire engine tour. Board your shiny Mack fire truck, a vintage red engine with an open top for optimal viewing. You’ll feel like a true firefighter as you slip into authentic firefighter gear to keep warm, then travel around San Francisco in old-fashioned style.

Motor through the Presidio and then see Fort Point before crossing over the postcard-perfect Golden Gate Bridge for a fire truck tour like no other. You’ll enjoy amazing photo ops of San Francisco Bay, the city skyline and the bridge’s twin spires — fog-wrapped or glistening in the sun — as you make your way to the bayside village of Sausalito. 

Make a photo stop at Fort Baker before returning back over the bridge. Ride through boutique-strewn Union Street in the Cow Hollow neighborhood and return to the Cannery at Fisherman’s Wharf where your 75-minute tour ends.

This was an epic Easter adventure. My five year old grandson, dressed in firefighter gear, was a hit riding in this old fire truck in the Easter parade. We loved it! And the views from the Marin Headlands were incredible. This is a fun way to see how beautiful San Francisco and Marin are.

8 of our group went on this tour we had just got in from England after a dreadful journey and was very tired -but the tour made up for the stress - it was fabulous - the tour guide was a great singer and made it so much fun - we needed the firemen's jackets as it was a cold windy day but that added to the fun - this tour was recommended to me from a friend and I would 100 recommend to all

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Highly recommend this tour. Something completely different from the usual city tours. Going across the Golden Gate with the wind in your face on the open air fire truck is worth it i Itself! Bonus drive up the Msrin a headlands with stunning views was also magnificiant and not normally where any other tour goes. Tour guide with her breaking into song was a bit quirky but very entertaining. The smile on our GrandsonS face in his tour provided fire jacket is priceless and says it all.
