Customer reviews
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.

kristopher burkhart

Great way to spend your own day as you want to! With the hop on and off destinations it's easy and set for your pace to see and discover what you want to see at your own pace. Thumbs up to the crew for their entertainment and detailed discriptions of the city by the bay.

Paula Babilonia

So great to show my sister the entire city without walking 10 miles! We loved it!

Susan E Coyne

We had a great time on the beach and park tour in SF. Our guides were enthusiastic, entertaining and fun. We highly recommend the tour.

Jacob Pridgett

Had a very good time enjoyed the tour. Would recommend it even if you have visited San Francisco multiple times.
