A great way to see the city and the Alcatraz visit was amazing. Very good value and very competent and friendly staff.
Great tour - absolutely loved the Alcatraz visit. Interesting, well run and a fascinating history. Well worth the visit! Would highly recommend.
Bus passing every 15-20 minutes so little to no wait between pick ups, Alcatraz was amazing, if I go back I’ll do the night tour!
Alcatraz is unreal the feelings you get walking around and listening to the commentary make you feel like you have a real insight into what went on inside the place. On Off bus worked well as able to complete a full trip and work out where you want to get off next round. Cable car is also well worth the ride but if later in the day expect to wait a while
I wasnt overwhelmed by San Francisco, either its architecture, bus tour or its food, but the visit to Alcatraz was a highlight of the holiday and cant be recommended strongly enough.
I received a telephone call informing of our arrival time for the Alcatraz tour and an email. The staff offered suggestions for the on and off city bus tour and how to see everything we wanted to. We ended up buying an additional day. That included tickets to the Aquarium. It was a great trip! well worth the price.
The day tour of the city was very informative, it would be hard to see all the different neighborhoods without the bus tour. The Alcatraz portion was amazing! It's great that you have a reserved time to go out to Alcatraz, but can take any boat back you want, leaving you to decide how much time you want to spend. The night tour was wonderful, tour guide Dave, was absolutely the best.
I signed up for the Big Bus tour because in truth it was our only way to get Alcatraz tickets. I was pleasantly surprised I used the Big Bus to take the tours around the city, even the night tour, and entire family enjoyed it. Bring your blankets for the night tour, it gets cold! The tour guides were fun and made the trips enjoyable! We would consider this in any big city!
Fantastic tour! Alcatraz was incredible to see up close, and we did the bus tour shortly after. My only suggestion was that you need to go to the wharf to pick up your tickets in order to start the tour. Otherwise, great experience and the big bus company was very helpful, and the package comes with a lot of opportunities to experience the city!
Another excellent trip this time out to Alcatraz. Very interesting and well worth a visit.
Loved, loved, loved, the Hop on Hop off Bus in San Francisco. The best way to see and learn the history of the city.
We sat, listened and saw the city the first time round, then on second day, we hopped off at places of interest to us, walked around, then hopped on next bus that came within 20 minutes.
Excellent service, guides were fun and informative.
Best thing about Hop-on-hop-off bus is as name suggests you can stop anywhere, see what you want and rejoin bus. I found that if I stayed on and did whole round then I could decide which places i really wanted to visit that day. Alcatraz is a must just to see history and realize the advances our society has made - good or bad.

The audio portion and f the tour at Alcatraz was totally helpful and made the visit even more interesting!

The Big Bus ride was a wonderful experience. The commentary was constant and hilarious, Big Bus Blake kept us amused and laughing throughout the ride. My son and I had an upstairs seat and we loved it, BBB pointed out all the things we needed to look at and described them in great detail. His partner in crime, Terrific Tony who was driving, was smooth at the wheel and took us to all the highlights of San Francisco, pausing where possible for photos to be snapped. The ride across the Golden Gate bridge was spectacular. This is an essential trip for any visitor!
The Big Bus San Fransisco Sightseeing and Alcatraz combo is the way to go if you want to see both Alcatraz and get the overall look at San Fransisco. The ease of getting on and off the bus was great and the Alcatraz tour was very good. Highly recommend this way to see a lot in a short time frame.
This was a great tour.
The headphone tour was spot on and very knowledgeable.
Also the speaker in the dining had some great stories to tell.
Highly recommended it.

San Fran is a great city with lots to see. Well worthwhile and getting off from time to time. Alcatraz is a must and quite sobering for the conditions the prisoners had to deal with.
We also had the night tour which was enjoyable too.
This was a great way to see San Fran as a first time visitor. We did the night trip too which was amazing too. Alcatraz was brilliant, we hadn't realised we had to pre book, so by having this booked already meant we did not miss this great opportunity. The bus tour was very informative and interesting
Big bus and Alcatraz trip definately worth it. Better to book Alcatraz early as it was sold out for a further 3 weeks when we were there. Really enjoyed it. Dave and driver made the big bus a fun experience.
