My sister and I used this tour company for our sight seeing of San Francisco. We were only able to see about half of our scheduled tour as we were left stranded and waiting for our pick up along with several other sightseeing customers on the same tour bus at pier 39. We waited for two hours!!! Needless to say,... More

After waiting for 20 minutes, bus arrived but the driver refused to stop at designated stop location, he didn't care we waved at him. We had to... More

Great way to see the city. Especially loved the commentary of the many experienced guides. We were able to get around the city on the frequent buses and also learn about the history of the different areas from people who knew the area.

We chose this company on the recommendation of our hotel and purchased tickets(so we thought). We went to the Union Square pickup point and waited for the next bus to arrive. The bus took us through parts of the city and terminated near Fisherman's Wharf. We were told we had to go to the ticket office up the hill (5... More

I had two days in San Francisco before heading to Yosemite National Park and I decided that the 2 day Hop On Hop Off tour would be perfect. Over my two days I had about 6 guides since I got on and off the bus so many times in different places. My top two guides were Billy and Dave, both... More
