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.
A last minute change of plan that had us visiting Muir Forest instead of the morning city tour. The change was handled very well and infact the change to the forest was wonderful after a few days already in the city.
The only down side to the whole day was the pick up of the Alcatraz tickets. This was a 40min walk around fishermans wharf to collect the afternoons tickets. On top of a busy day this may be fine for the young and fit, but for me shortly after a knee operation it was a killer as it may be for others.
We had a great time. The driver was very informative and cordial. The only negative, per say, was that we didn't have a great deal of time in Sausalito as we would have liked because we had to catch the ferry back to San Francisco.
After an early hiccup with the booking day and rearranging things, the actual tour was fantastic and the people associated with the company were great. The tour took us around all of the sights and the guide, Paul did an excellent job! Recommend highly!
This was a great tour, only a small group which made it more personal and tailored to the group. Its amazing how much of San Francisco we got to see in one day, which was great as we only had a short time to stay there, so was perfect. Our driver/host was a very interesting character, we learnt some things about the area and alot about him personally! But highly recommend this if you have a short time in San Fran and will be able to see alot of it on this tour - and of course Alcatraz.
