This was absolutely our favorite tour. It hit ALL the attractions that we wanted to see before we left. Kyle, the tour guide and Marco the bus driver were awesome too. They both offered to take pictures for everyone at each of the stops. Kyle was very knowledgeable about everything we saw.

This is a great tour. We only had 2 days in San Francisco and this tour got us to many of the must sees.the ferry ride was great and Sausalito is a great little town. We saw Alcatraz from the ferry. Got a close up of the Golden Gate Bridge. Walking down Lombard street was a hoot and China town is very interesting.

We were in San Francisco for only a brief time and wanted to make the most of it. This tour certainly covered the must see places and we were fortunate enough to get an amazingly clear view of the Golden Gate Bridge as our driver took us to a terrific look-out. The ferry trip to Sausalito gave us enough time for a quick lunch there by ourselves and was one of the many highlights of the tour. We had a walk through Chinatown, with a stop off at a place that made fortune cookies walked down thankfully not up! Lombard Street the crookedest street in the world stopped off at the Palace of Fine Arts saw the charming painted ladies houses visited the Cathedral and my husband went to the cable car museum whilst I had a coffee! As the tour starts at the Ferry Building, it's possible to get a great selection of artisan food to take with you, or eat later in the day. Altogether a great tour with an informative guide. Highly recommended if you are in SF for a limited time.

Visiting SF for first time since a child. Would like to have had time for shopping. Sausalito stop was barely time to eat with no time to shop. In China town just a walk thru. I would rather have added time there without the trip to the palace of fine arts and the church with more time in China town and Sausalito for shopping. Over all a good time. Could make it a 7 hr tour and give time at fisherman’s wharf.


3 star rating: Worth doing April 2018

Spoilt by the terrible weather,it poured down the entire trip and then some rendering some views impossible even though our guide Linda and driver Charles did their best,really will have to try to visit.again !!
