Great tour
We had Eric for our walking tour of Fisherman’s Wharf and he was great! He was very enthusiastic telling us about the area and gave us a great recommendation for lunch. I wish we had this tour the last time we went to San Francisco a couple of years ago!

Take insect repellent
Great information about Alcatraz & its history. Wonderful views. A long walk to the cell block. They said the equilivent of a 13 story building. The ferry & the island had a tremendous amount of pesky flies.

Alcatraz, yes…walking tour, no
The Alcatraz tour was great! I downloaded the app and it was descriptive and felt as needed f I was transported to life in Alcatraz as a prisoner.

But, the walking tour pre-Alcatraz was less than inspiring. The guide, Wealth was his name, didn’t have much knowledge of Fisherman’s wharf, the sea lions, and general information of surrounding subjects aside from what he memorized for the tour. He was also condescending in his attempts to answer questions he didn’t know…and he kept mentioning how broke he was. Don’t do the walking tour if he is your guide. It was a forewarning when he said there were a lot of no shows to his tour (there were only 3 of us).

Oh my gosh - I am so sorry to hear that! Wealthy hasn't been with us that long so I will be sure to bring this to his attention ASAP and make sure he is up to our standards or else I will be scheduling other guides. Please contact me in the future if you would ever like another SF tour (with another guide of course). Best, Dara

The Bataan March on Fisherman’s Wharf
The walking tour of Fisherman’s Wharf was absolutely worthless. We advised the agent by phone(two different individuals) and the guide prior to setting off that one of us has difficulty walking. We were ASSURED by all that we would be accommodated, and the pace would be modified. After the first three minutes, the guide was so far ahead of us that we heard nothing for the remaining 70 minutes. I tried to get the guide’s attention on four separate occasions, but I was ignored or not seen. I have no idea what sights we were passing as my companions and I were out of earshot, and no matter how quickly we walked, we couldn’t catch up.
We nearly missed the boat to Alcatraz. The agent on the phone was very helpful. She guided us through the will call and boarding process.
Experience First tours is really not very accommodating. The length and strenuous nature of the walk were both misrepresented. I’m sure the guide had great knowledge, but we will never know.
We are thoroughly disappointed with this experience and hope this review keeps someone else from our fate.

Hello. I feel that this review is unfair. We actually spoke on the phone before the tour and you told me that someone in your group had difficulty walking and that you would likely leave the tour and meet up at Alcatraz because of that, which I relayed to our guide so he would not be waiting for you if you left. This tour is not suited for people who can't walk well. We cover just over a mile in 75 minutes and have timed tickets at Alcatraz so we can't linger too much. I'm sorry if you felt this was unclear, I wish you would have called me back sooner so we could resolve without leaving a negative review. None the less, I hope you enjoyed your Alcatraz tour. Best, Dara

The tour of Fisherman's Wharf was rushed making it hard to keep up with Chet at times. Some interesting information was given some was not necessary. We had to pratically run for the boat to Alcatraz at the end. Would I recommend this tour, no I would not.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear you were rushed. Chet has so much info to share sometimes he goes overboard. I will certainly make sure to review timing with him so this does not happen again to our future guests. Thank you for the feedback and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. Best, Dara

Great tour of Fisherman's wharf!
Eric was our guide and he was very knowledgeable about the history of San Francisco and Fisherman's wharf. Our family learned things about SF and the wharf that we didn't know. Eric was personable, friendly, funny and interactive. Thanks Eric for all of the recommendations for eateries and where to visit. We had a great time.

Great Tour
Chet was very knowledgable about the city's history. A later Alcatraz time would help folks on the tour time to ask questions, and allow anyone with mobility issues time to catch a breath.
