This is a great way to see the City. Once we got the hang of it, we were able to go all over. I would recommend to anyone doing this, that you stay on the bus with a tour guide through the entire trip, then decide the places to get off and see.
As usual the Big Bus tour was great. The hop on, hop off access to the bus is great. The only issue we had a few times is that we couldn't get seats on top which is where you can really view things. The bottom of the bus tends to be a bit stuffy and you can't see out the windows as they are filmed.
Fantastic way to see the city without walking a million steps and taking a thousand cabs.
Really amazing service. We got on an off continually with our 2 day passes and all the guides were really knowledgeable and approachable.
Our night tour was particularly enjoyable and the guide Jacob was enormously entertaining. I very much enjoy a person with a dry sense of humour so couldn't have asked for a better guide!. His driver Larry seemed to know exactly what he was doing as well.
Would definitely recommend to anyone else looking to get a sense of San Francisco in a few days. Well worth it. Thank you!
This is great for saving your feet in this hilly city. You can get your bearings and decide where you want to return for a better look around. Beware of the wind when going over the Golden Gate bridge. it is very strong and can be very cold.
This tour was great to see the city with limited time in San Fran. And it goes over the Golden Gate Bridge, with the option to explore the other side, which was great. Try to get on a bus with an actual guide, who will give you insider tips about the city and each stop. Also, try to get on the bus early or at the beginning or end of the tour OR at a known busy spot where people will get off, this way you can get a seat on top of the bus. Beware though, if you're on the top during the ride across the bridge, it is very, very, very windy and cold.
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.
Great way to get to know the city, what there is to offer and to travel around the main attractions
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.
Wonderful tours. Took the day tours throughout the SF/Sausilito areas and the night tour of the City and Treasure Island. We find it so convenient using the hop-on hop-off method to see any major city we visit. No traffic or parking issues nor getting lost. We hop-off whenever we come up to someplace interesting we want to see. Other than it was cold as heck over the bridges, we really enjoyed the whole 2 days.
Great tour! with very funny/entertaining live tour guide Jacob and his driver buddy Jose. We had them during out night tour and it was fun. Must take the tour if you and #39;re in SF for couple of days. Just carry warm clothing it gets chilly on open double decker bus.
