It was such a fun way to first see San Fran. Kids loved it and so did the adults in our group.
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.
We took our two children aged 8 and 11 on this San Francisco tour. We thought maybe our older daughter would be too cool for a ride on a period fire engine but both loved it. The drive across the Golden Gate bridge is particularly special and then we got some great photos on the Marin headlands with the bridge and fire engine in the background.
The driver and compere made the trip giving a humorous commentary along the way and regularly breaking into song.
I have been to SF many times but hadn't heard of this tour before. It's something really different to do with the family and we would definitely recommend it.
This tour was great - Although my husband and I are San Francisco natives, we enjoyed this tour very much. The tour director, sorry I cannot remember her name, was so informative and cheerful. To top it off, we had a beautiful, clear and sunny day. Will recommend this tour to our friends. Great tour for the tourists.
Five star to the driver also.

This was a blast as we were four adults that were a bit overwhelmed as we drove around in the 1950's Fire Truck. Our driver Tommy and his assistant/guide were very accomodating and created a fun atmosphere.
Everywhere we went people were amazed and were constantly waving.

To quote our 5 year old, "This is totally awesome!!!" The whole experience was wonderful. The ride had to be reschedule due to weather, and the employees took care of everything and were very accommodating.
We took our 2 young children (8 and 6) on the San Francisco Fire Engine Tour last month (January) and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide (Carla) was very engaging and provided interesting commentary about the sights we passed on the tour interspersed with entertaining songs!
It was very fun! Russell and Rose were awesome, singing songs and historic bits about the city were entertaining and educational.
It was one of the high lights od our San Francisco tour.
We both found the trip to be entertaining,informative and very enjoyable. The guides were pleasant and helpful and they made the trip memorable.
This tour was a lot of fun and the driver did an excellent job of showing us the sites and delivering a fun and informative experience, this is a tour that I would recommend to anyone.
Our family had such a wonderful time! Perfect for families with younger children.
extremely good experience . Guide and driver very good .Worth doing but make sure you have a jacket if you do not want to wear the fireman coat. Going across the Golden Gate bridge in an open fire engine is definitely a very cold experience hence need for a jacket
What a great fun tour, pity the bridge was in fog, never mind it is what it is are far as weather is concerned. Our hostess was a real crack up, with the most beautiful voice when she sang, great jokes shared and very knowledgeable about San Francisco, the driver was funny too. A GREAT FUN TRIP we all enjoyed
It was great fun my Grandaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The driver and guide were great.
My husband and I are still smiling thinking of our trip. What a blast! Going over the Golden Gate with sirens and lights blasting; singing along w/the guide in our very own firemen jacket and hats was a memory we will always remember. Both the driver and guide were knowledgeable and fun. Don't miss this! Only drawback was they wouldn't let me drive. . .
In terms of the tour - This was a brilliant tour! The tour guide was very lively and loved her singing - very entertaining!! Highly recommended! However the fire engine company had no record of our booking through viator which meant we had to reschedule the day, as the day we booked was full. Disappointing from Viator but highly recommend the customer service received from the fire engine company who put on a tour just for us as we were going home 2 days later.
We had a lovely sunny day on out trip across the Bridge. We were driven by Russell and our "conductor" was Alexandra. Both great people and had a clear love for the piece of history we were riding. They complimented each other well and took us round some beautiful parts of San Francisco. A trip worth taking. (Remember to take a fleece)!
great fun, Alexandra was a great tour guide and entertainer, she should be on the stage fantastic voice. loved the tour and the ride on the fire engine.
Fantastic trip, not only the fire engine and the golden gate crossing but the route through San Francisco and the other side of the bridge. Brilliant tour guides and a song we won't forget in a hurry :), would recommend to everyone-adults and children will love
One of the highlights of our holiday. The crew were excellent and the experience going over the Golden Gate bridge was amazing. Sausalito was very pretty.Only concern was on the health and safety side - We sitting behind the driver with no apparent working seat belts and no side door it was a bit scary at times. We did get the chance to take some wonderful photos.
