Every day of our trip, we used their buses to hop on and hop off to Union Square and other locations. We took all the tours except the night tour. The majority of the guides were fun and interesting, adding their personal knowledge of San Francisco. The tours were always punctual so you had to be there on time. We... More

Went on the downtown tour of San Francisco, hosted by Zelda. In all honesty compared to other cities San Francisco doesn't offer the historical variety that others have, however Zelda made it fun , interesting and interactive and above all else very enjoyable.

Check in to pick up the tickets was quick and the person who helped us was friendly. The first tour we did was the city loop and our tour guide was decent with a great sense of humor but would have been better with more facts. The Golden gate Park tour was the next tour we took. Our guide, an... More

I don't agree with all the bad reviews; we had a great experience and that’s not an easy feat with my friend. City Sightseeing provides hop-on hop-off tours at a reasonable price. I’ve been to SF numerous times but choose this when I bring friends who’ve never been. If it’s you’re first time in SF this is the best way... More

We took the Golden Gate Bridge & Sausialito tour and the Golden Gate Park tour (both hop on/hop off tours). Both trips were great fun and very informative, but the Golden Gate Bridge tour was the best. We were lucky enough to get on Spencer's bus and had a wonderful time! Spencer is charismatic, friendly, funny, knowledgeable and generally a... More

We bought the 48 hour, 4 tour package and were not disappointed. Each guide had their own style. I must say that Soda Pop Jones did a little too much TMI. I don't need to know how small and expensive your apartment is or how hard you work to make me leave a big tip. Another guide (I wish I... More

City sightseeing is a bus company that provides live guided tours around San Francisco. There are four tours available we took 3 and went all around the town. The only problem was waiting for the bus which only comes every 20 sometimes 40 minutes. We had 3 different guides and heard three different stories about the same subject or building.... More

The first thing I noticed is there is no defined timetables... It's pot luck where you end up and at what time. The tour guides seemed knowledgable on occasion. The tour to Sausalito is ok... But.. You're much better off on the ferry. Secondly the very very old London buses are pretty much dead, no suspension, crap seats. Don't ever... More

Our hotel concierge recommended City Sightseeing over the other hop-on hop-off bus tours so we opted for the 24-hour 4-in-1 tour. I had found discounts on the internet which the concierge was able to use when purchasing the tickets for us. We were there on the 4th of July and expected crowds, which were there! The tour guide on the... More
