Booked in here to keep the kids happy. The fire engine is great and the dress up coats work well. It's a good tour with an eye-opening vista of San Fran. Worth the cost. However, we didn't know that the tour is run by failed singers who spend the entire time trying to get you to sing along to Sesame... More

She was great and told us so much. It was my wife's first time in California and my first to cross the bridge. Really a... More

We sat in the back of the truck which was bumpy but added to the fun. The tour took you around the Lombard, Presidio area before going over the GG bridge. The views are amazing and there is a short stop to take photos. Tour guide was informative and fun.

We had the absolute best day with Debra & Tony. The tour in itself was amazing but they made it so much more enjoyable! Very knowledgable and personable. Would come back again and recommend to family and friends for sure!!!

It's been over 10 years since I have gone! The original owners have moved to Hawaii and sold the company on retirement but the new guides and driver are just as good. With a new route and more history, we were entertained throughout. What a treat on a spectacular in a clear day! Loved the singing too! Thanks to the... More

We did this tour many years ago, and decided to try it again.....it's as great as ever. A totally unique way to see many of the highlights of San Francisco, and all in the open air on an old fashioned fire truck. Our guide Debra and driver Dave were fun and very interesting. They took us to many great sites,... More

We had Mary as our guide (5 people, 2 that understood English well) on a Tuesday early afternoon and couldn't have had more fun! Sing along, hear a song & enjoy the view. The Golden Gate Bridge was gorgeous, but only half as beautiful as Mary. What a great experience! Back in SF next year (same convention to work) &... More

Such a cool way to cross the Golden Gate Bridge! Awesome picks of us, the bridge, and the fire truck. My husband was a firefighter and love anything to do with fire trucks, I surprised him with the tour and he loved it!

Deborah and crew rock.. We had the best fun and learnt stacks about the beginnings of such a beautiful city.. A must for a fun day in the sun.. The fire truck was only a small part of this quirky tour. The wind in your knotted hair and the bugs in your teeth only added to the stunning views.
