San Francisco Departure Transfer: from Hotels

San Francisco, California

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Only issue was we waited quite a few minutes for one couple. I thought the driver should have gone to their door to "speed them along" but he did not. However, we made it to the airport in plenty of time.

San Francisco City Insider Tour with Optional Muir Woods Trip

San Francisco, California

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Good points: the driver was congenial and quite knowledgeable about the city. He took us through numerous neighborhoods and parks - truly a good overview of the city. Bad points: he only stopped 3 times for us to get out and take pictures. A 13 passenger van is entirely the wrong vehicle for this tour and we were in the last row - hence last to get out and first to have to get in. A 30+ passenger tour bus (like this company uses on other tours) would have been much, much better. The windows in the van did not permit "proper" viewing for such a tour as we were on. If one was sitting in the middle of the seat, you didn't see a thing. The driver only paused briefly when he pointed out things. There was barely enough time to take one photo if you could get the shot lined up and in focus, let alone pass cameras back and forth across the seat to take pictures for others. I would go ahead and recommend the tour, but I would advise friends of the pitfalls of it first.

My Review

It was either the driver's first day/week on the job or he was having a very bad day. After partially filling the van we left the Domestic Terminal and went to the International Terminal to pick up an additional passenger. We drove right past where he had picked us up and I thought we'd head onto the highway, but no, he drove back "around the block again" so to speak to the Domestic Terminal and picked up another passenger back again where we had started from (three times at this stop). Then we finally headed into the city. During the trip, he kept consulting his GPS and reprogramming it. As fate would have it, I was the last passenger. I couldn't help but notice he drove right pass the cross street my hotel is on. When I pointed it out to him and again gave him the address of my hotel, he said it wasn't the address he had for it. I knew where the hotel was and asked him please to use the address I had given him. When I finally got there it was nearly 1 1/2 hrs after leaving the airport!! Since I had booked a return trip, I was not looking forward to having to take this same shuttle back to the airport.
