Having never been to San Francisco before, the Big Bus Hop-on Hop-off tour was the perfect way to see the city and get a sense for the spots where we also wanted to spend more time. Awesome way to see The Golden Gate Bridge. Friendly staff, great value. I would recommend these tours when exploring any new city, or bringing friends and family in to town!

It provided an opportunity to see a lot for the price.

The tour and tour guide was absolutely fantastic. It was cold but well worth it. The tour stopped for a 15 minute break to allow us snacks and hot coffee, tea, and hot chocolate then onward. It was great.

Took friends visiting from out of town. Was the best way to avoid parking in the city while visiting the sites.

It was great! Be prepared with warm clothes if you wish to go on the upper level.

Windy weather made the day uncomfortable, unfortunately and there was partial fogging of the Golden Gate Bridge and the City. Favorite stop was lookout on North Golden Gate Bridge. Worst part of the day was waiting 45 - 50 minutes at Union Square, stop #16, for bus to come. As a result we did not see Chinatown as would have liked. My visitors from Italy appreciated the recorded descriptions in Italian very much. Your beginning point is very incorrect as you list it, as you make it sound like it's the primary San Francisco Visitor's Center, when it's's your companies Visitor Center. If I had not called the main visitor center to ask a couple of questions, I would never have know that and would have gone to the WRONG PLACE to start and get my ticket. YOU NEED TO WRITE THE ACTUAL ADDRESS OF #1 ON YOUR BROCHURES AND OTHER PLACES SO BUYERS REALLY KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU ARE.......I SEE YOUR CURRENT LISTING AS

Same Big Bus different city, the one recommendation I would make to folks is BRING A SWEATSHIRT, San Fran was WAY colder than we were expecting in late July.

Long line at Union Square, not enough buses. Viator bar code could not be scanned by tour operator machines. Tour stops did not have a good view of landmark/sights. The Paris version of Big Bus was much better.

This was a good bus tour. We unfortunately wanted to hop on when there was some trouble, so we waited for more than 45 minutes until three buses came at exactly the same time--a little frustrating since we had limited time in the city. The live tour guide was terrific--engaging and clearly well-informed. The audio guide was decent. It is definitely a terrific way to see the city and I would do it again, just fingers crossed we don't wait for too long.

A great way to get around and familiarize yourself with the area. It was a beautiful day and perfect for seeing the sights!
