Ride atop a vintage Mack Fire Engine while wearing authentic fire gear (for warmth, comfort, and great photos). Leaving Fisherman's Wharf you will go through the Presidio, to Crissy Field, over the Golden Gate Bridge and on to Sausalito, a jewel of a village with magnificent views of San Francisco, and back across the bridge through other neighborhoods to the Cannery.

A unique and fun way to see San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. Tour guide Debra was great fun and very knowledgeable. We had a brilliant time and would highly recommend. Many thanks also for accommodating us last minute when we mixed up dates and almost missed out on doing the tour!

We wanted a unique tour of San Francisco and really wanted an up close tour of the Golden Gate Bridge. This tour covered all the bases! Johnny our driver was excellent and Debra our guide was spectacular! I now have more trivia on San Francisco than I can ever hope to use! Highly recommend this tour

Had a fantastic day out - hand down the BEST way to see the sights - the kids absolutely loved it - the guides were super friendly and it felt like the whole of SF was watching us smiling and waving through the streets - can't recommend it highly enough

Excellent way to see San Francisco especially the Golden Gate Bridge. The guide was very informative of all the landmarks and had a very good singing voice. Advise to wrap up as it is very windy going over the bridge. Well worth the money. Thankyou for an enjoyable tour.

Found this tour for my husband who is a firefighter. He loved it! Was like a little kid on the truck. The guide, Debra was excellent! She was so nice, had a great singing voice and was very knowledgable about the city and the fire truck as well as the San Francisco fire department history. Definitely worth every penny, nice...

We had a last minute opening in our San Francisco travel schedule, so called the service number (415-333-7077) and were able to get two available seats for a tour the same day. For those who are a bit more into planning, the website has advanced booking options. Tour starts at 650 Beach Street, which is less than a 10 minute... More

Been looking at doing this tour as something different , as we have been fortunate enough to have visited SF several times before. It takes you on some different routes, we have not been on before and that the other tours do not go on. Debra was very informative and funny and the driver (sorry can't remember his name) was...

We loved this unique way to see San Francisco and cross the Golden Gate Bridge. The tour was fun but also full of interesting information and the tour guide was very entertaining. We needed the old fire jackets provided when crossing the bridge as it was very windy and chilly but the sun was shining on the far side where... More
