Ride atop a vintage Mack Fire Engine while wearing authentic fire gear (for warmth, comfort, and great photos). Leaving Fisherman's Wharf you will go through the Presidio, to Crissy Field, over the Golden Gate Bridge and on to Sausalito, a jewel of a village with magnificent views of San Francisco, and back across the bridge through other neighborhoods to the Cannery.

We are family of four who recently travelled to San Francisco. The fire truck tour was recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed - it was the highlight of our San Fancisco experience just eclipsing Alcatraz. The fire truck itself is a charming vintage fire truck and therefore perhaps not the most comfortable ride but that is... More

We all loved the "outdoor experience" and... More

This tour was amazing from start to finish. David the driver and Debra the tour guide were so welcoming. We were a group of 12 (6 adults and 6 kids) so we had the truck to ourselves. They were totally accommodating to the kids and let them ring the bells, honk the horn and climb all over. The tour itself... More

The best way to see the Golden Gate bridge - from an open top 1950s fire truck. Our guide was brilliant - singing some of the way and making our family laugh. This is off the beaten track and makes you feel really good.

The couple that runs the business is the perfect description of how to destroy an experience. They didn't follow the timetables and what is accorded. In addition the tour is a complete waste of time.

Booked this as a holiday outing for a group of 6. The truck itself was very cool, and we had high hopes that the evening would be a lovely, carol-filled ride through neighborhoods lit up for Christmas. Well, the guide couldn't sing, didn't know the words to the carols she tried to lead, and the Christmas songs they played on... More

Our family loved this unique tour! The open air ride in the back of an old fire engine while wearing a vintage firefighter jacket was memorable and the views were amazing. Highly recommend for all ages!
