We always take the local tours when we go someplace new. However, his coastal tour turned out to be the worst trip we have ever been on. Keep in mind hat we were travelling with an 82 year old diabetic with mobility issues as well. First of all, the bus was an hour late and we had to stand on the sidewalk waiting. When we got on the bus the driver told us that the people with aquarium tickets would not have time for lunch so he told us to buy lunch at the next stop which was at 11:30 am. Noone told us that when we ordered the tour. Anyway, there were no lunch items at the stop. It was just coffee, sweets and pastries which a diabetic cannot have. We had to settle for scones. Then when we got to the aqarium later on, we found that there was a restaraunt in the aqarium but we had already eaten the junk! At around 7pm (7.5 hours later) we stopped for an hour in Caramel. It had been a long time since we had eaten and asked if we should have dinner there. The driver suggested bloody marys instead and said we would be stopping to eat at 8pm. So, we waited. At 8pm he stopped at a fast food area and gave us 15 minutes to get something from a fast food chain and get back on the bus. Man, we should have eaten in Caramel! So, we did not eat the fast food because of the high salt, fat and sugar content of the foods. Then we get close to San Fransisco at 9pm and find out that we are the next to last people to get dropped off at our hotel. We were hoping to get back to take our elderly traveller a decent meal. We did not get back to our hotel until after 10pm and the restaraunt in our hotel closed at 10 pm! Our 11 hour trip turned into a 12 hour trip. We were very tired, cranky, hungry and very disappointed. We had to go to Applebies for dinner at 10:45 pm. Although we saw a lot and learned a lot; just be aware people and ask for details!
