Overall i thought the tour was really wonderful. Our host Debra and driver Tanya was the best. Really intimate tours which took us to the best sights. No regrets!!! 1 of the highlights of our trip to SF.

Our driver Jimmy and tour Guide Debra were top-notch! It was easy to get to the tour by BART/Hyde Street Cable Car. We ended 2014 on New Year's eve day aboard the 1955 Mack Fire Truck. With teenagers in tow in our family, and elementary school kids in others, we were hoping we all would have a good time. No... More

Great way to see the sights of San Francisco and to cross the bridge. This was recommended by friends who'd been a few years ago and it was a good recommendation. Great fun, great guides and great singing. It was cold and overcast on the engine and we still got sunburnt so remember your sun cream!! Makes you smile the... More

I was on the Saturday December 6 Light tour. We chose this tour because them limit how many people are on the firetrucks. We get there and clearly there are more than 14 people, but are told there are two trucks going out for this tour. There is a huge childrens party already getting on one truck and are told... More

Can hardly express how amazing this experience was. We were extremely jet lagged and grumpy when we arrived, but the wonderful Deborah snapped us right out of that, entertaining us through every second of the tour (even when I dozed off a few times - sorry Deborah!). My partner and I are in our mid 20s, however there were also... More

A birthday present for our 5 year old and we had just as much fun and he did. Our guide, Deborah, was entertaining and gave all of us on the tour an informative ride through the city and Golden Gate Bridge. The day was sunny and clear which helps put a smile on the whole experience.

We took our 2 children (aged 6 and 4) on this trip as we thought they would enjoy it more than a traditional city tour. We weren't disappointed! It was great fun to ride though the streets and across the Golden Gate Bridge in the fire engine. Our guide (Deborah?) was amusing and informative and held our attention well. The... More
