This unique tour brought me back to 1967, the Summer of Love. We were greeted by a tour guide in full hippie costume who welcomed us aboard the multicolored, bubble-emitting school bus shaped bus. Once aboard, we spent about two hours touring the San Francisco sites that were important in the Summer of Love. At intervals, screens rolled down over the windows, and we watched footage from that summer. At one point, we got out of the bus and strolled through Golden Gate Park, each one of us with a flower in our hair. I was a flower child in the Northeast in 1967, and it was like seeing historical sights ( and sites). It was a thrill to see Haight Ashbury and City Lights Bookstore, about which I had heard so much.
It was also a lot of fun to see the people looking at at The Magic Bus in amazement, and taking pictures of it.
I would have liked to have gotten out in Haight Ashbury and at City Lights Bookstore as we did in Golden Gate Park.
In my opinion, this tour is most thrilling if you were a part of or are interested in the flower power movement in the late 60's. My husband, who was definitely not part of it, was less than thrilled with the tour But I was. It was a time machine to an important part of my past.
