We took this tour the first day of our holiday with jetlag and it was the perfect thing to do. We got to see all of san fran and stopped everywhere. We were able to decide what we did and did not want to go back to later.
The tour guide was really informative and funny - kept providing drinks throughout the day,
Lunch in salisito was lovely and we then went on to muir woods.

Muir woods is also a must see. We were not nature lovers but we loved it. We spent about an hour and a half there which was perfect . . .

Overall I would definately recomend this tour !

We did the City tour alone. Took this tour based on it had the most stops in any city tour with a guide. Great for getting an overview of San Fran and hitting all the major stops so you can see what you want to come back and visit. Didn't find our tour guide the MOST helpful with information, but very good nonetheless. We saw and actually got out at all the major attractions and then we finished our tour in Sausalito. out tour included a ferry ride back to San Fran - but at our leisure. So, we ate lunch, walked around town and then took the ferry back whenever. Not sure if it's worth the extra pricey dollars - but it was very good.

I would like to say I had a wonderful time on the SAN FRANCISCO 5 HOUR TOUR!!! If you want a great tour of the city go to San Francisco Comprhensive Shuttle Tours. They also have other tours of Muir Woods and Wine Country.

We were able to see tons of things in 5 hours, we got to walk around and get out of the bus at many of the stops (9 total). We were able to walk to Lombard street where most tours just drive buy, we were able to stop and take picts of us walking down the street. Your tour guide is just that he/she is not the driver also, we had Angelo as our driver and Jason as our tour guide. Jason is very knowledgeable and tells you tons of history that makes your tour more memorable. You visit Sausalito and ride the ferry back to San Francisco and the ferry goes beside Alcatraz Prison Island.

(Get out of the shuttle at these stops)
Start at: The Ferry Building
Ferry/Bay Cruise
Sausalito - via Ferry Cruise
Golden Gate Bridge
Chinatown - Guided Walk

Found this tour via TripAdvisor. We did the 5 hour city + Sausalito tour. Started off in the bus from the Ferry Building, ending up on a return ferry (seeing Alcatraz Island) from Sausalito.

Good mix of bus + walking tour. Great choice of sights and tour guides, with plenty of time - you weren't rushed at all. Walked through local neighbourhoods (past Lombard St), Chinatown, Grace Cathedral, Japanese Tea Gardens, Painted Ladies, Golden Gate Bridge etc etc. TIme in Sausalito for lunch. Great deli at 'Venice'

Would definitely recommend. We did the 9 am tour, finishing after lunch.

It was hard to choose a San Francisco city tour amongst the numerous offerings so we based our choice on the fact that this tour offers many actual stops where you get off the bus for a better experience and pictures; and the good reviews here on TA. Our group of 5 ladies chose the Comprehensive 5 Hour Tour and loved it. We were only in town for two nights so this was a great overview of all the most popular sights in SFO. We would have never been able to see this much on our own. The tour is on a medium size (20 passenger) shuttle with large windows and complimentary water. There is a tour guide and bus driver. Our guide was great fun and knowledgeable about all the sights. We chose the 9AM tour which covers the entire city portion first before heading over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausilito. We then had lunch on our own. We liked the option of just taking our inlcuded ferry ticket with us so that we could continue on shopping in Sausilito at our leisure before returning on a later ferry. Great value for all that you will see
