This is the best way to see San Francisco- efficiently and inexpensively. I plan to recommend it to my associates at work.
Our guide, Rodney, was awesome!! He made the bad weather disappear and brought history to life with his spot -on timing and footnotes.
Rode a second day and got another tour with same guide. Yay Rodney! Thanks for making a couple of cold, rainy days incredible.
My son's 12th birthday was one he will likely never forget. Thanks for all the pointers too!
Very good local guides, with plenty of information. Frequency of buses was an issue once you got off. Night tour was interesting.
It was fun, great experience. We got to visit the attractions that I was really interested in. The bus runs about 45min to 1hr for pick-up. If you're lucky, you get to see some interesting people on the streets. The tour guides were entertaining and informative. I learned a lot about different parts of San Francisco.
We enjoyed the tours we took very much! The guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining as well! We happened to be in San Francisco during the 4th of July weekend with a very large crowd of others with the same idea!
Our buses were full and very happy to be where we were on top of the bus! With the best view!
Thank you for an awesome experience!
Enjoyed the guides very much-Jennifer and Ricoh the driver were a great team. Humor and knowledge nicely blended. We used the hop on hop off as our mode of transport all over from Union Square where we stayed-after taking the BART from the airport. The only negative was that the last tour left at 5pm.....so you had to be careful to be on the last bus to get back before the buses were done. The night tour also did not leave till 6pm from the Wharf....kind of a distance at night. Overall-so well worth it! My hubby had never been to SF so we wanted to see it all....and we did :
I liked the fact that there were three different tours, plus the night tour. I was able to take advantage of all the tours and loved it!
Best way to see a great city.
Staff always helpful and informative.
We went on two buses - had to change at the Gate Bridge to go to Sausilito. Both drivers were amusing and knowledgeable.
It was our first down in San Fran after a long 12 hour flight. We made our way to the Waterfront Info office and hoped on and didn't have time to hop off except at the end.
Jim was a terrific engaging, knowledgable guide who was extremely entertaining and had a great rapport with the people on board. He liaised with Reggie the driver to pick people up and drop them off safely. It was a very good start to our time in San Francisco!
