This was a fun tour - we did it our 1st day in town to get a feel for the place. My mum and I were the only two people on the tour so that made it even better - a private tour at no extra cost. The guide knows and loves her city which is always so impotent and you get to see nooks and crannies that a normal tourist would never know about or simply walk past without knowing. Definitely a worthwhile tour if you want to ht the ground and get a feel for this great tangible city.
The tour guide was great! Knew the history very well and was very friendly.
Made you feel at home away from home.
Very good tour guide. Gave alot of history and details of the city. would do it again.
We had fun with uor tour guide. She answered our questions and was very knowledgeable of San Francisco. Although we walked a lot, still we had fun. We would likely do it again! Thanks!
It was awesome! We had the best tour guide, she was knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. Would do it again or make sure to tell my friends, if they ever go to San Francisco to take the tour. Well worth the money.
This was our second day in San Francisco. As we were the only couple,Tony was able to personalise the trip to ensure that we were able to visit places we had not already been to. Especially enjoyed the walk round the wharf area and through the gardens from Coit Tower. Saw places that we would not have found without local knowledge.
We booked this tour in August. All in all I think it is a very good deal. The walking tour was informative and the guide friendly. The tour lasted almost 3 hours. We purchased the Alcatraz option which is a must see. Truly a unique experience. Others who reviewed this tour mentioned the cable car tickets were only good on the date received. That was not the case for us. Our tickets were good anytime. One thing to note is that the cable cars are a tourist attraction so the lines at the beginning/end of the routes are very long (hour plus) and the cars are packed so you may wait a long time at a mid-point stop for a car with open spots. I would suggest taking the car after 7pm when the lines die down. Also the tickets are for a one way trip with no transfers so pay attention to where you get on or you might get a very short ride.
We missed our walking tour but did th cable car ride which my grandchildren totally enjoyed.
It was awesome! We had the best tour guide, she was knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. The walking tour was timed perfectly. I wish we would have had more time to enjoy the views from Coit tower. Alcatraz is a must see and has beautiful views of the city.
Tour guide was informative as well as cheerful. Enjoyed walking around San Francisco instead of driving. I would have like to have gotten the cable car tickets earlier in the day so we could have used them.
the tour of fishermans wharf was very informative, the walking tour thru the north beach area and up the hills to coit tower, all wonderful but very tiring for an older traveler, Alcatraz was incredible and the audio tour hauntingly real.
Excellent! The walking tour was very informative. I felt we were able to get more history and a better feel for the city than obviously on our own, or get off, get on bus tours. I highly recommend.
I felt rushed on this tour. We also didn't see much of north beach IMO. Would have been nice to concentrate slightly less on fisherman's wharf, but maybe I just chose the wrong walking tour!
The walking tour was ok... she gave some information regarding the area but it really wasn't that interesting overall. I felt like she was trying to sell us other tours instead of giving us information. We did not end up taking the Cable Car Ride because they don't tell you that only one cable car runs at a time and it was an hour and half wait to get on it. Alcatraz was awesome and definitely worth going on however you can do that on your own and not pay for the walking tour as well. That was the other issues, Viator does not give you the option to pick what time you would like to catch the ferry over to Alcatraz so my group of four was split up. When we called the company to have them change the times so we could all be together they said that it was our own fault for not picking out times all together but the website did not give us an option. Just buy a decent San Francisco travel guide book and do it on your own!
Too much walking, especially since we walked much before the tour. It was not easy to locate meeting point.
It was raining n wet. No way to take photos as most scenes were not clear. Tour guide talked to us under the rain. Rushing through because of rain. Not much insights into various places. Guide didn't get Alcatraz tickets for us but told us queue n get ourselves. Not enjoyable trip.
