This was a good tour, but take it early in the day, by the time afternoon comes around there is very little room on the buses, sometimes overcrowded and hard to find a seat too sit in. We had one instance where the driver stopped for us to get off and then abruptly started up again throwing us around on the bus that wasn't our best experience. It is a good way to get to different areas in the city if the bus wait isn't too long which sometimes it can be.
is a great experience to see all the landmarks. Couldn't fault it - highly recommended
We bough tickets before we left Australia and they were considerably less than half the price other passengers where paying when they got to SF. We had the 48 hour ticket which included the night tour to see the lights of SF. It was well worth paying for that alone. We spent the two days and one night wherever we wanted. The trip to Sausalito was really memorable and the photos taken from under the GG bridge in the evening were stunning. We have never seen photos of the bridge from this angle.
Great staff and bus drivers. The WAY to get an overview of downtown San Francisco
Prima Möglichkeit die Stadt kennenzulernen! Gute Anbindungen, nettes Personal, reizende Anekdoten. Einfach empfehlenswert.
Would highly recommend not missing the night lights tour. Wear you jacket.
it was a great experience
Very good tour. Guide was EXCELLENT, he made the tour.
