I hated him. He was obnoxious, and gave me a headache. He was also very rude. Everyone else was awesome though.(:

You can see the whole city, we had the three day pass and we also bought a ticket for Muir Woods. They have some diffrences in the price, depends on what you want to see.

I was on a girlfriends trip and a few of them had never been to SF so I decided that a sightseeing tour would be best. We did the City Sightseeing tour two days in a row and I must say that Phillip is the best guide. He didn't sound scripted like the others and it was easy to tell... More

I bought the deal through Travelzoo and what a great a great deal it was. You get off at any of the stops to take pictures, etc. and get the next bus. I highly recommend it.

We booked the Alcatraz and San Francisco City Tour through Viator and others on the excursion booked directly through Grey Line. We were all led to believe that there would be a certain order of events and a specified amount of time for both parts of the trip. There was not nearly enough time to tour Alcatraz, we had to...

Every driver and guide we had were great - Tara, Jennifer and Philip to name a few. We did all the tours, including the (rather chilly) night tour, and they were all great. My personal favourite was the parks tour - the Victorian houses are beautiful and Golden Gates park is huge with so much to do and see. We... More

The live commentary is the only thing that saves this company, it included interesting facts and history about the city. The wait time to catch the buses was terrible, they say their busses stop by between 15 and 30 minutes, which was never true. The average waiting time for us was around 40 or 50 minutes, making us waste valuable... More
