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.

This is a great way to get acclimated to the city of San Francisco. There is so much to do and see in San Francisco and it's a bit spread out. My advice is when you purchase the Hop on Hop off tour, to be sure to book the two day tour and spend the first day just riding and listening to tour guide via headphones. Maybe hop off a couple place for a quick look around, but the second day use it as a taxi service to get to where you want to spend more time at. Also, start day one EARLY so you get a full day of touring. Take a jacket or small blanket...even in the summer months and sit on top so you can take in all the views. We were there in July 2017 and the sun is hot but the air is cool...especially going across the bridge. I would also recommend on the second day taking the trip over the bridge to Sausalito and having lunch. Unfortunately the trolley to take us into Sausalito was late b/c it broke down so we didn't have much time to explore,but we had already been there with a rented car a couple days before so our purpose was just to take the hop on hop off over for lunch.

Very good option to go around the city and find all the good attractions. Plenty to do in San Francisco.

Great way to see highlights of the city and learn some history. Get a bus with a live guide - they add much more to the commentary. Mark (San Francisco side) and Dwayne (Sausolito and Golden Gate) were smart, entertaining, informative, and passionate about their city.

My six friends and I went to San Francisco for a visit. Since we didn't want to walk everywhere we bought a 3 day pass. It was perfect. It included a night tour, a trip to Sausalito, and more. It was a great bang for your buck. Highly recommend.
