Great bus tours, guides very informative and lots of information given. We rode the whole way round not taking advantage of the hop on hop off aspect except for being dropped in Union Square and Chinatown. Transfers to other buses for Sausalito was smooth. My only 'complaint' (and it's not really a complaint) is that the downtown and the main... More

At the end of April 2016, my wife and I had 3-day pass with Alcatraz tickets, definitely worth it. As the ticket office was only open for a short time in the morning, we had to get to the office early in time to exchange the voucher for tickets before it closed and get the bus for the Golden Gate...

We did a two day pass, and used the buses extensively to get around the city. The on / off / back on process works great, and we never had to wait too long for a bus to come around. I wish I could remember for sure our best guide. I think his name was Ron (he was a SF... More

We bought a two day pass and decided to do the whole blue line tour to get a feel of SF. Our guide and his driver, the two Dons, were excellent and the guide, Don, injected some humour along the way. The next day we decided to do the Sausalito tour and was extremely disappointed with our guide. Maria kept... More

We had 3 day pass with Alcatraz tickets, definitely worth it. Guides are knowledgeable and funny, great way to see the city. 'Soda pop' was our guide on the hour red loop and was awesome, so funny. Everything is spread out so definitely cuts down on the walking!

There is no need to use this service as there are many other, efficient ways of getting around this city. We gave up on the sight seeing buses despite having a three day pass and used the local buses ( F) line instead. It was only $2.25 per ride for a long distance. What's wrong with the site seeing bus?... More

Walked to Union Sq where we approached all 4 tour companies. Got a cracking deal for 5 of us for 3 days, included walking tours and night tour. Used them extensively, bit of a wait sometimes but no longer than 30 mins. All the guides we've had have been very informative and fun, especially Don and Maria. Took the tour... More

Excellent tour guide, with good knowledge, saw key places and we sat on red one which turned into blue which was nice and easy. Only criticism is don't come as often as should. So much better with a live tour guide than recorded script.
