It was great fun. The driver was hilarious & entertaining.

Gail Gay

The tour and guide were great. Only complaint is having to go to Fisherman's Wharf and find the office. You need to find a better system. I

Had a great experience. We saw many sights. The ability to get off and explore and then get back on, travel to the next sight is the greatest. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to get a snapshot of San Francisco.

Christopher Higgins

The tour was very informative. I suggest that you take the entire tour first and then go back again and do the hop-on / hop-off once you know the 2-3 places you want to explore in more depth.
