We LOVED this tour and would highly recommend doing this Hop-off-Hop-On bus tour in order to see the city. Misha, our tour guide was fun, funny and inclusive to all of the "guests" he had on his bus. He was knowledgeable about the city and helped us to decide where we wanted to hop off and explore. This was a GREAT choice for our visit! We wouldn't recommend riding this bus to get to a scheduled tour, though- the high volume of traffic in San Francisco is just too unpredictable for the driver to control the timing. Instead, take a full day (or two) and simply ride and hop off and on at a leisurely pace without any time-restrictions. We booked Muir Woods and Alcatraz separately and took the public bus for those.
fantastic experience, you can use it all day and stay in the stops as long as you want. Commentator was hilarious
The Hop on, Hop off Tour was fantastic. It was worth my money. The best attractions were covered, the times running were great and the tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The extra loop to Sausalito was a great find. I would highly recommend this tour.
Mono, the tour guide made this tour well worth the money. We were first time visitors to San Francisco so this was an excellent way to get the scoop on what to see and do, with lots of tips and tricks from a guy that really knows what's happenin'.
Best value of the Bay Area. Take the two day trip. It takes you a day just to figure out what you really want to see. Use the bus as a taxi to the street cars downtown, then change cars at Market Street where the cars cross one another. We used the bus for dinning out. One day in Chinatown, the next in Little Italy. Best value of the trip.
The hop off hop on tour is great! We were able to see all of the major landmarks. I went on the tour with people who had never been to the city before, it was their favorite excursion! To top it off, our narrator, Mono was very knowledgeable and friendly! He's awesome!!
Friendly staff and drivers. Waiting time is average, not long, not short. Tour covers most important attractions for those who like to know San Fran within limited travel schedule. The buses are not packed; perhaps thanks to the company policy - nobody stands while buses are moving, which is good that it ensures that everyone gets seated. Especially if you don't want to deal with hectic traffic and finding parking in San Fran and want to save time for the stops/landmarks instead, this tour does help.
Great tour, saw all the sights at our own leisure, the only thing was it was freezing cold so definitely wrap up if you're sitting up top. Great tour guides who knew their stuff. Would recommend for those who want to see all of San Francisco with limited time to do it.
