I do not think I need to say much on the tour to Alcatraz, which we can safely recommend as a must-have for any trip to San Francisco if you have not seen it. The Magic Bus tour was definitely a worthwhile experience that takes you back to San Francisco in the 60s. Expect to ride on a bright and bubble-spewing bus to spread good moods to the outside world. Best to also plan time for other sites e.g. Golden Gate bridge, Fisherman's Wharf as not all can be fitted into the two plus hours tour.
We had a great tour! Our tour guide was really fun, energetic and she had a lot of groovy information. Our daughter and friend who were on the tour with us said that the Magic Bus San Fran Tour was exactly what they expected we would have booked. They enjoyed it, too! We all did!! Combining it with the Alcatraz Tour was a perfect combo.
I took my parents and they loved it! The tour guide and bus driver were great!
Very cool way of seeing the city and learning about San Francisco, very entertaining! the driver and our guide are super friendly! highly recommended
This tour really was fun. The actress was very lively and entertaining but also very knowledgeable. I had gone on some hop-on/hop-off tours for two days prior, and she gave more information about different area's of the city than those tours did. This tour is not for everyone. You need to love music, history, and fun and have a sense of humor. There is a lot of tongue in cheek humor including the handing out of mints (LSD) to put you into the "right frame of mind" for the time. This tour comes complete with a 3-D bus (and glasses), retractable screen show, flowers for your hair, and singing along to great music. Wait until you experience the "Wizard of Oz" Munchkins dancing to "Route 66." The actress (I cannot remember her name, dark shag hair, little space between her teeth, groovy clothes) and the driver (can't remember his name either, blonde shag hair and groovy clothes) were impeccably dressed in 1967 garb and encourage all riders to do the same. I would do this again in a heartbeat even without the Alcatraz tickets-but that is a fantastic extra and this is a brilliant and fun way to get them. This was a lot of fun, a lot of history (reminders of a time not so long ago) and the continuous stream of bubbles coming from the bus was a great touch! Peace Out until the next time
More fun on the magic bus than we could have imagined! Alcatraz tour is a must.
Something completely different to hop on hop off buses! We were taken back in time with music, videos and points of interest in San Francisco. Our guide was wonderful, even wishing bystanders peace and love, sometimes even a flower. Unfortunately had to find our own way back to pier 33 for Alcatraz tour, was only 15 including tips by taxi. Tour was great, will need to watch Alcatraz movies again now so I can tell everyone I have been there!
Not your typical SF tour!! So different and so much fun! My kids were the only young ones on our tour and didn't quite understand a lot of the tour they wanted to know more about what LSD was, but we really enjoyed it. I probably would not have included kids just because that's a lot to pay for each kid when they aren't really understanding what is going on. But a great tour for adults for sure! You don't get to see all aspects of what you would see on a normal SF tour bus, but that's the whole point!
This was one of the best tour experiences we've ever had. The Magic Bus was perfect for seeing San Francisco through the eyes of the 1960's. See Haight-Ashbury as it was and now is, envision the Fillmore with standing room only, imagine parks filled with rock and hippies. It was an excellent journey for those of us who remember the 60's. Combining this with Alcatraz made a full day, but with time to grab lunch at Pier 1. I highly recommend this combo tour for folks who appreciate the 1960's!
I was highly impressed with the technology on the bus and with the friendliness of the driver and tour guide! The tour guide was perfect for the Magic Bus trip! I did however expect, for some reason, that the tour would end somewhere near the pier. But plenty of time to get there. And I probably didn't read something i should have.
We had a wonderful time, traveled all the way from North Dakota, when we got to union square to board the bus we realized we had left our tickets in our vehicle which was parked at the hotel. We were sure they wouldn't let us on the bus. when we explained this to Serene Rain, our tour guide, she took my hands, looked into my eyes and said I believe you. We had a wonderful time on the bus, learned some things about the Hippie movement and had lots of laughs. I would recommend this tour to anyone!
We purchased this tour because that was the only way to get tkts to alcatraz. Our tour guide Gaya was full of energy and so much fun. You need to be open minded if you decide to go on this tour, if you go along with the whole thing you will enjoy if not you will not! We enjoyed it!!!
This tour was tremendous fun, and quite exceptional, and combined with Alcatraz it was a tour that I would recommend to anyone.
Really great tour! Enjoyed learning about the history. Great tour guide, very funny and entertaining!!!!!
To be honest, I only booked this tour because I wanted Alcatraz tickets and this was the only way I could procure them. That being said, I had a great time on the Magic Bus. My husband, my three kids (21, 19, and 14) and my daughter's 18 year old boyfriend loved it as well. As a matter of fact they said it was one of their favorite things that we did in San Francisco. It was fun and whimsical, without being too hokey. I would recommend this tour, particularly for those traveling with older teens and college-age kids.
I took this trip with my daughter, her husband, and their two daughters, aged 7 and 13. The girls loved it! The funky, interactive experience really brought home the vibe of SF during the Summer of Love and the tour hostess, Gaia ( her "flower child" name) made everyone feel like part of her "tribe." I would highly recommend this tour for kids of all ages. Be aware, when talking about SF during that itme the topics of drugs will come up. Nothing inappropriate whatsoever is shown on the video screens and Gaia does a wonderful job of censoring the subject matter. This is a great experience.
Brilliant tour and the amazing "Gaia" was a fabulous tour guide. Bit of a mix-up with the Alcatraz tickets - our voucher said we should collect them on the bus, when in fact we missed the man outside the bus who wasn't obvious but who was handing them out, but they handled it very well and he met up with us quayside later on to give them to us. We laughed our way round the tour which was also very interesting with details that you don't get on the normal bus tours. All in all great value for money and a brilliant way to obtain Alcatraz tickets. Would totally recommend it - it was one of the highlights of our stay in San Francisco.
