We had so much fun! The tour took us all over the city, showing us many sights we never would have seen by walking. The warm blankets provided were much appreciated, and the Santa hats were an adorable touch! Our tour guide was clear and articulate, and was able to answer several questions asked by the riders. He was very entertaining, especially when he randomly sang along with the Christmas music playing on board. Very enjoyable experience!

Loved it! Had a little history along with caroling and beautiful city lights! They provided blankets for us and santa hats to keep our heads warm and festive. Great way to start the holiday season!

Not sure if I selected the wrong time and date to take this tour. I thought this would be something different and fun to invite my out of town in-laws to. The tour provided a driver, tour commentator, santa hat for each guest and holiday music while riding the motorized cable car throughout the streets of San Francisco. The tour disappointed from beginning to end. We had to ask for the Santa Hat. The PA / microphone was not operating properly. So we spent some of the time listening to ear piercing squeals. The music selection did not add to the holiday spirit. The tour guide lacked enthusiasm when speaking. As we rode through the streets, there were times which we just sat and looked out. When he spoke, some of the information was not interesting. Some of the information, could be obtained by looking out the window and arriving at the same conclusion. Also, the driver interjected with his own comments which did not help the experience but instead contradicted what was said by the tour guide. This made me feel like the tour guide was not experienced and was filling in for a friend. I could not wait to get off the tour. I have to confess that I for the first time did not tip a person.

Was awful and we got off at Union Square. First, the tour was oversold. Several of the adults were very, very large people that each took up more than 1 seat. That left us to squeeze in uncomfortably and our two children had to sit on our laps. Also one woman had to sit on her husband's lap. Second major issue: it was not just holiday carols playing but they were BLASTING through really poor quality speakers so loud that everyone was uncomfortable and looked miserable. When we got off at our first opportunity my ears rang for 5 minutes. I'd like a refund and will never ever ever do this tour again. Sad because the family and I had really been looking forward to it.
