If you are going to do just one tour while in SFO this is the one you should do. Our tour guide was Phil and he was very knowledgeable about the city, the tour was with a small number of people which made it very private and quaint.We did three tours while in SFO and this was by far the best one!! We actually got to see all of the hot spots in the city and then did Alcatraz at the end of the day. Well worth the money!!!
We did a reverse tour of Alcatraz in the AM and city tour in afternoon, the Bay Cruise was cancelled as it was July 4th no fault of operator. We did the self guided audio tour of Alcatraz, it was very informative and easy to follow. Our tour guide, Phil Siegel from was fantastic. As we were on a small bus, he was able to take us to places that the big tour buses cannot go. He is very knowledgeable and fun, the entire afternoon was a great pleasure, we learned a lot!
Alcatraz was great. The City Tour was also amazing. The guide we had was very informative and knew his stuff about the city. His microphone was a bit mumbly at times and I found it difficult to hear all that he was saying. Otherwise we were very impressed with the service.
Great tour ,very knowledgeable and polite driver.Went to places in San Fransico that we would have not found on our owen.
Supurb our tour was broken into two days which in hindsight was a great idea our drivEr for the city was Phil he was fabulous very informative Alcatraz well what can u say impressive company was extremely professional well done .
James our tour guide was very knowledgeable, informative, and courteous. Very happy with our day! Will book again in the future.
City tour was good, guide was excellent, really knowledgeable, shared personal stuff but not overboard. Didn't realIse on booking that I would need to walk between places to collect tickets and get to next place. wasn't that far, but was a bit challenging in the extreme heat. Alcatraz was awesome.
Great personalized tour, small group saw all the highlights. Tell the guide what you want to see and he will do what he can. Guaranteed ticket to Alcatraz for the stuck in traffic boat. You only need 2 hrs at Alcatraz max so spend your day accordingly. Ferry ride to wharf is great for pics
Our trip was absolutely amazing. It was fantastic value for money. Trip to Alcatraz was wonderful and incorporated the best audio tour I have ever had. It was made even more special as we met one of the last surviving ex inmates, bought his book and had photos taken with him. Our city tour, well what can I say, we certainly saw San Francisco. Special thanks must go to Don our tour guide who made it so memorable. He knew the history of every suburb , had an amazing knowledge of the city, a great sense of humour and just made it utterly enjoyable. I cannot recommend the trip highly enough and would definitely love to return to your wonderful city.
A good service throughout, tour guide was fantastic, good knowledge of the city and its history, The bay cruise was good but was unfortunate not to be able to land on Alcatraz due to the government shut down. But all the rest of the tour was superb.
It was a memorable experience and well worth the cost, Alcatraz was amazing and we were so lucky to enjoy it on such a beautiful day without any fog. We stayed @ Sir Francis Drake which was very nice but pricey for the size of the room. staff were right there to help, Parking there was expensive @ the hotel with the tips , again it was a great city and we enjoyed it very much.
It was wonderful from start to finish....well, everything but the weather that is:) That's San Francisco for you!
This tour was great fun and we learnt so much about San Francisco, I would suggest doing it early in your stay in San Fran so you can understand the city and places more. We had Patrick as our tour guide, he was really informative being a San Fran native, quite funny and fun in general and showed us many large, medium and small details about San Fran. Highly recommended and ask for Pat!
Very professional and informative driver. Comfortable bus, great sights, arrival and departure on time. Would recommend this driver and tour to all.
WOW!! What a great day!! Our tour guide was Safiya. She was AWESOME and we had a terrific day. Transportation was on time and comfortable. We enjoyed her knowledge of SF and she made it such a fun day. The only down side to this tour was the short time (45 min - 1 hour) we were permitted to spend in Sausalito. We informed our tour guide that more time should be allowed. Luckily, we had visited Sausalito the day before on our own and spent hours enjoying lunch, shopping and cocktails at The Trident over looking the water with a beautiful view of SF bay, Angel Island and Alcatraz.. The next day, we were walking around SF, saw Extranomical Tours, walked in and told them about the short time in Sausalito. They liked the feedback we gave them. Hopefully they will make changes for more time in Sausalito in the future.
This was the best day trip I had ever experienced. My family and I had so much fun. I have been recommending your website to all my friends the next time they are in San Francisco. The next time I take a trip I will defiantly book a trip through Viator.
Really enjoyed the tour - only disappointment was that we were meant to go on a morning tour but it was changed to an afternoon tour the day before - we missed out on driving over the golden gate bridge or getting anywhere near it - just spent to long on other things that we didn't really need to see and not on the big things like the golden gate bridge. by changing it to an afternoon tour meant we had to deal with afternoon traffic etc.
