Enjoyed the tour of San Francisco with a great guide. Missed seeing the crooked street on Lombard St. and the Coit Tower. Ended tour in Sausalito with time for lunch before our ferry ride back to Pier 39. While I really enjoyed Alcatraz, our tour of Alcatraz didn't leave the pier until 3:20. By the time we arrived I felt we really didn't have enough time and had to rush through to see everything because the last ferry left at 6:00.
Excellent. The one day tour ended up being split into two days so sadly we only managed the city tour part and dropped the Alcatraz visit. The agents were great and refunded 50 of our cost as we only had one day in San Francisco. The tour was amazing and I cannot recommend it highly enough, they picked us up on time and the driver was extremely knowledgeable. The city took about 4 hours and takes you around all the key areas and the driver points out everything including areas where films were made i.e. Mrs Boubtfire. We then crossed the Golden Gate bridge and took a ferry back to Fishermans Wharf. Excellent trip and very enjoyable.
Amazing day from start to finish! We were met by the lovely Pam of Extranomical tours, whose knowledge was second to none! Would highly recommend

We would recommend Viator. We were picked up from our hotel in the morning by the 'minibus' and began our fantastic San Francisco tour. The guide was so knowledgeable and friendly and took us to so many places. Nothing was too much trouble. There were plenty of photostops. We stopped on both sides of Golden Gate Bridge and the drive over to Saulsalito was awesome.We took some great photos on the ferry across the bay. Alcatraz is an experience not to be missed. Well organised and good value!
Absolutely brilliant tour around SF, thanks in a big way to Phil our driver/ host. His views and knowledge of the city of the buildings, events, history and social development really made this trip. With only 5 of us in our group he customised the visits to suit our requirements.
tour guide was awesome and had lots of knowledge
we had a wonderful time
what a great day out great guide saw all of san francisco and alcatraz was worth seeing
Phil gave us an excellent city tour of San Francisco. We learned so much about the history as
well as seeing all the sites, many we would never have found on our own. The specialty coffee
was a plus !! Phil is personality plus, knowledgeable and made sure we had a fun day !
Alcatraz Tour was as good as the recommendations !
Thoroughly recommend this tour. Our tour guide - Phil - made the tour interesting and fun!! It's a great way to see the city especially if you are only there for a short time. Alcatraz is a must see when visiting San Francisco and the audio tour brings the place and its history alive.
Outstanding tour operator, Pam, really helped us a lot. She could answer any question we could ask her and was very helpful.
the audio input was fantastic to take you around the facility, they also cater for people with walking disabilities which was really good.
we did this tour and had a fantastic guide, he was knowledgable and very friendly, it made the trip so much more enjoyable. the attractions are amazing and san fran is a amazing place, everyone should spend a few days there and explore.
If you are going to do just one tour while in SFO this is the one you should do. Our tour guide was Phil and he was very knowledgeable about the city, the tour was with a small number of people which made it very private and quaint.We did three tours while in SFO and this was by far the best one!! We actually got to see all of the hot spots in the city and then did Alcatraz at the end of the day. Well worth the money!!!
We did a reverse tour of Alcatraz in the AM and city tour in afternoon, the Bay Cruise was cancelled as it was July 4th no fault of operator. We did the self guided audio tour of Alcatraz, it was very informative and easy to follow. Our tour guide, Phil Siegel from was fantastic. As we were on a small bus, he was able to take us to places that the big tour buses cannot go. He is very knowledgeable and fun, the entire afternoon was a great pleasure, we learned a lot!
Alcatraz was great. The City Tour was also amazing. The guide we had was very informative and knew his stuff about the city. His microphone was a bit mumbly at times and I found it difficult to hear all that he was saying. Otherwise we were very impressed with the service.
Great tour ,very knowledgeable and polite driver.Went to places in San Fransico that we would have not found on our owen.
Supurb our tour was broken into two days which in hindsight was a great idea our drivEr for the city was Phil he was fabulous very informative Alcatraz well what can u say impressive company was extremely professional well done .

James our tour guide was very knowledgeable, informative, and courteous. Very happy with our day! Will book again in the future.
City tour was good, guide was excellent, really knowledgeable, shared personal stuff but not overboard. Didn't realIse on booking that I would need to walk between places to collect tickets and get to next place. wasn't that far, but was a bit challenging in the extreme heat. Alcatraz was awesome.
