Great tour, we hit all the top spots. Great guides.
We love the HOP ON HOP OFF. Make sure you use the BIG BUS in San Francisco. They are the only one with the headsets in every bus. We made the mistake in the past. Look for BIG BUS
Great way to see the city and stop when you have an interest and time. Getting a seat on the top is a real asset and there are options to move up and passengers depart. The guides were very helpful
A great way to get an overview of the city as well as some of the key attractions. It worked very well for us
An excellent trip which is great value for money.
The commentary as you make your way through San Francisco is informative and entertaining.
As it is hop on and hop off you can choose to visit the sites that interest with the added benefit of also seeing those which you may otherwise have missed.
Interesting tour and comfortable.
Great way to get to know the city, what there is to offer and to travel around the main attractions
Had a great time on the bus tour. Would do it again.
What a wonderful way to see San Francisco, It was nice cool and sunny day. Our tour guide in the morning was so knowledgeable about the city. We learned so much about San Francisco, then we got off in the Ashbury area, and after walking around, we got back on to another bus, and the tour guide was a young girl in her 20's, she was very funny and sometimes acted foolishly. We laughed at her remarks, but other than that, it's a great way to see the city and learn.
Great! Tour guides were informative. I'd go with them again!
