I've seen Golden Gate Bridge and drove across it many times over the years visiting SF. This is by far the most fun! Open top fire engine ride across was rather windy but fun for my 6 yr old boy. The photo spot they chose was a regular tourist spot, so it gave visitors a not so often seen vantage... More

Book this tour! We had a great time! The ride is in an open air old fire truck so they suit you up in a real fire hat and fireman's jacket, and your off. Great views in the cool brisk air was nice. Go over the Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito where we made a stop to enjoy the views... More

We booked the fire engine tour and what a great choice to see San Francisco with younger children. We hesitated to book a longer tour as we have a 2 and 4 year old. This tour kept them engaged and gave everyone a great overview of the city and bridge. It was fun being on the fire engine, and the... More

This was an incredible way to see San Francisco, The Golden Gate Bridge , and Sausalito. I was amazed by the beauty of the city and the history. The Entertainer was very informative and enthusiastic, in a very natural way. Our driver did an excellent job of driving us comfortably through out all of San Francisco. We enjoyed seeing the...

Our family had such a great time on our Fire Engine Tour. Our driver and Entertainer were fab!! We have three girls..6,8, and 9. They loved every minute of our tour. We wanted to try something that the girls would consider different and a "once in a lifetime" experience. Our expectations were met and exceeded. You cannot beat the price... More

This is a fantastic way to see San Francisco and the bay area, especially for families with young children (we have a 6 and 7 year old). The tour takes you from Fisherman's Wharf, through Cow Hollow and the Presidio, across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, then back the same way to Fisherman's Wharf. Our 'narrator' was brilliant -... More

This is a great way to see some of the city, and cross the Golden Gate bridge to Sausalito! A must for families with children, or adults who are children at heart! Just be aware that it is really windy crossing the bridge, and when it's typically San Francisco "cool" it can be VERY cool. The only "hitch" was that... More

My nephew came to town and I thought this would be a fun way to experience the Golden Gate Bridge. He loved it! We sang together, and got some great photos of us on the 1955 Mack Fire Engine. Just a warning... I sat in the far back of the truck and it was a very bumpy ride, so be... More
