Fabulous! Great comentry and what a spritly guide and amazing driver. Well worth it!
An excellent way to see the city when your time is limited to one day. Courteous drivers and guides. Clean buses with reliable frequent stops.
Excellent tour and good value for money. I would highly recommend it.
Wonderful tour great way to see the city. Definately worth every penny
We were a group of 6 enjoying a day trip from our California Coastal cruise. I first heard of HOHO tour
on trip advisor and I'm glad we did. It was a little confusing at first as where to get on bus. It's best to
sit on bench facing Embarcedo, close to Aquarium. We had take a short free shuttle from our ship to get there, but could have easily walked. I agree with everyone else. It's very cold and windy going over Golden Gate Bridge. Our driver "Deon" was wonderful. He gave out blankets to anyone that needed them. You need to be dressed warmly as you are sitting on top in the open air. We only got off a few stops. I highly
recommend stopping at Chinatown. Lots of neat trinkets. Union Square has a lot of upscale shopping such
as Coach, Jimmy Choo, Barneys if you are in the mood. We spend a lot of time at Fisherman's Wharf and
Pier 39. The sea lions were out which was a nice treat for my 13 year old nephew. The Boudin Bakery has great clam chowder in the sourdough bread bowl. There's a 2nd shop in Pier 39. My sister loved the left handed store at Pier 39 as well. There was a double decker carosel and arcade games for the younger ones. We ran out of time and didn't make it to the ferry building, which was highly recommended as a place to visit. Our driver, Deon, was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed his commentary.
Overall, we enjoyed our time on the excursion with HOHO Bus.
Pleasant tour. We love the tour guide I believe his name is Ulises. Down to earth guy and very informative. Made the tour very fun:-)
this tour was great the information by the on board rep was great we loved the idea that we could get off at so many different stops and it was grate that it was so flexible we had a great time and good value for money and we will be using viator in the future
Sorry we couldn't review. Our ship as delayed and we didn't get to use the excursion.

I recommend this tours if you don’t have enough time in San Francisco, we did this tour the last day and we had an 8:00 p.m. flight, so it was the exact time to do the loop and had some stops. We just had to wait about 1 hour to start the tour at Union Square stop, there were telling us the bus will come shortly (even they had a bus parked there) but other bus companies had like 2 more buses there. My mom only speaks Spanish, when we start the tour the first bus had headphones and she can hear the explanation of each site, but the other 2 buses we use didn’t work so we had to translate what the guide was telling. But we enjoy all the visit and the Golden Gate Bridge stop was our favorite and the Golden Gate Park you can’t missed it. Lorena Toledo
Reasonably priced and a little chilly but a great tour of places we had not seen in many years. Easy access from the cruise ship terminal.
These tours are always good value for money and a great way to familiarise yourself to get your bearings on the city. They are also good to get from one place to the other that you want to go to along the route. Our driver/guide was a crazy man and a lot of fun which made it even more enjoyable.
Bus stops need to be marked better, especially at the cruise terminal. The tour was great, the ride across the Golden Gate Bridge was a nice surprise. Would do this tour again.
This is a great way to see the city. Bring a wind break jacket as its cold and windy up the top. It's a great idea to get on and off the bus so that you get different commentators with different styles and information. I think you need a two day pass if you do want to hop on and off.
This was a good excursion, except we were not prepared for San Francisco weather. We got the bus in the afternoon, all was great till we started to freeze, then we went to the lower level of the bus. the windows on this bus were covered with kind of transparent advertisement, and you really couldn't see the tour from inside. So ti was die of exposure, or not see San Francisco, or dress for the event. In all my reading about the area I never read about how cold it can be.
Tour guides were good but bus seats were uncomfortable. One bus had virtually no suspension and was very jarring to say the least.
Not worth doing with this company. It took 3 phone calls to find out where to catch the bus. Apparently when a cruise ship is in (which was us) the departure point moves. Who knew. Nobody notified us. Considering we booked a shore excursion for cruise ship passengers, why weren't we told.??? We only have so much time.
Also, the driver of the bus that took us to Golden Gate Bridge gave us 15 mins to take pictures, which was fine.; but he started to leave after 13 mins, even though other passengers were telling him they could see us coming. He finally did stop, and let us on. How rude! Find another company.
The tour guide were great, but on the website it said the bus runs every 20mins in summer time, but it turned out to be 30 mins.
Good way to get around the city though confusing as there are so many hop-on hop-off buses, so different colored buses were confusing if you had never been there previously.
Initially we had a problem finding where he stop was to pick up the bus. The directions had perfect instructions however due to construction (that had been going on for a while) they moved the stop and we were not told. We waited 1.5 hours for the bus and had to call to find out where the stop was moved to. After that it was a great tour. The drivers were very knowledgeable and the stops were good. I wish it stopped near where Lombard street is crooked.
sending around a open bus when raining not a good thing. too long a wait when you get off and on
