We booked to go on this trip today and after spending $8 to park nearby no-one turned up so I had to call the number on the confirmation (at great expense from a UK mobile) only to be told the tour was cancelled. No text or e-mail was sent prior to my phone call to let us know leaving us... More

We took our 3 year old on this tour. We sat in the back of the truck, and he wore a fireman jacket. We enjoyed the tour, which features several different nice views of the Golden Gate. We sat in the back, and the temperature was fine as it was a nice day. I imagine that it might get a... More
