Took the full day wine country tour to Napa and Sonoma. Booked through Guideyou.com, so the price was only $69 instead of $75. Their shuttle bus picked me up from my hotel on time, and after a few more pick ups took us to the Tower office, whcih was the departure point. I liked the way they kept the hotel... More

We went on the wine country and monterrery tours. In both tours I loved how they picked us up from our hotel in San Francisco. Napa and sonoma tour: mediocre wineries, they took us to Madonna, Sutter Homes, and Sebastiani. Really bland flavors but we did get to taste a lot of wines at each one. Our tour guide was... More

We signed up for a half day trip to Muir Woods and Sauasalito. We were picked up at our hotel on time in a nice bus. Arrived at the tour center for a quick sign up. Left on time with a wonderful guide- "CURLY". He's been doing this for 20 years. Very informative, even a poet of sorts! Tour stops... More

Our concierge booked this City Tour for us and we weren't disappointed. Pick-up from the hotel was on-time and lots of information given on the way to the actual Tour starting point. Transfers onto the relevant coach were speedy and efficient.The tour bus was immaculate with a route that covered all the main sights. Harold, our driver, gave a superb... More

I have been to San Francisco a handful of times, but I had not done a city tour until this visit, and it was great! The guide was very informative, and the ride was comfortable. The stops are not long, but it gives you a great idea for what to do later in your visit or go back and see/do... More

I never actually got to take the tour with Tower Tours which maybe is a blessing. I was booked to take the 1/2 day tour to Muir Wood and was supposed to wait for the pick up bus from the front of my hotel at 8am. I turned up at the appointed time and waited for 45 minutes. Sensing that... More

We ended up on a tower tours tour to Monterey/Carmel after our tour provider was unable to run the tour on the date we had booked for. It wasn't bad just lacked professionalism.

We apologize that you did not agree with our method of checking in our customers. Since we operate multiple tours at the same departure time, we believed it best to route our hotel pick up service in a manner so that all guests are brought to the departure point.
