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.

We happened upon this Mack 55 fire engine in front of the cannery on our trip to San Francisco! My son adores fire engines, and wanted a photo in front of it! Dave the driver was so kind to allow him to even sit on the front. He invited us to take the tour over the bridge. We did and... More

We took the fire engine tour on 2nd April 2015. It was fantastic. We met at the designated spot on Beach street. A sign demarcates where you meet up. We are a family with two children 9 and 10. Both children (boy and girl) loved the trip. Debra the guide and Dave the driver were super friendly. They provided lots... More

For my 4-year old son, there could not have been a better way to cross the Golden Gate Bridge. The tour was expensive, but interesting - could have done without the cheesy singing, but it added to the overall experience, I guess?! We will never forget going over the bridge on an antique firetruck!

We had a great time on this tour. It is a must do if you are visiting. Our guide and driver were great. They were very informative and playful. This is the only way to see the bridge.

We took my 7 yr old on this tour and she loved it. From the big, red fire engine, to the magnificent views across the Golden Gate and of Sausalito, this was an amazing tour. Our tour guide Anna was enthusiastic, knowledgeable of the area and also provided some tips of goings on in San Francisco that weekend. This was... More
