What a buzz to cross the Golden Gate Bridge in an open top bus! We had a fab guide Keith, the commentary was fun but informative enough. Will use this company again in New York

Lively and informative tour guides made this worthwhile. Donagh and Hansel were both excellent. We got on one of the first buses in the morning and it was just the recorded narration, but the second 2 times we "hopped on", we got these excellent guides....More

Good to get around but WAY too expensive and drop off locations are not always that close to the sites. Get an Uber pool to all the sites and you’ll spend no way near if it’s 2 or more of you.

Pretty good and reliable. You get to see parts of San Francisco you might not be able to otherwise. We stopped at California Academy of Science and also did the Sausalito line on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge which is well worth...More

Sorry I have no idea where to park. We stayed at a hotel at Fisherman’s wharf and we were able to walk to the Big Bus which was close to Pier 39. I’m sure you can call the Big Bus if SF and ask where you can park.
