We took the Premium City Tour/Muir Woods combo tour. Our guides were pleasant and knowledgeable. Our drivers were friendly. It was a long day, but we felt our time was very well spent. We felt that the city highlights part of the tour allowed us to enjoy many sights that would otherwise not be worth navigating to on our own (like the Palace of Fine Arts).

We recently went on a five hour tour of San Francisco. San Francisco Shuttle Tour Company calls it the premium city tour. Molly , our guide, proved to be well informed and very knowledgeable about the city. She met us promptly at the appointed place. The shuttle itself was clean and neat, and our driver was careful as you must expect when driving in downtown San Francisco. By the end of the tour we had covered all of the most interesting places to see in the city, as well as the Golden Gate bridge and the town of Sausalito. To complete the tour, we took the bay ferry back to the pier where the tour began. There is some walking involved, and it seems that everywhere in San Francisco is uphill from where you are, but in truth, most of the walking is level or downhill, so even a senior like myself can easily manage it.

If you are new to the city and are looking for a way to see most of the sights in a quick and efficient manner, I highly recommend this tour. However... be aware that even if you do most of the work yourself by booking online, they will charge you for changing the date or time of your booked tour. I found out the hard way, because after I booked, I realized that in my haste, I had booked the tour on the wrong day and needed to make a change. And, this was not an "at the last minute" change. We are talking about two months prior to the day. Oh well... policy is policy I guess. Just be careful when booking and enjoy the tour.

A big thank you to Jason for making our day one that was full of interest fun and insight. The day was a mix of sitting on the bus and walking. We walked down the crookedest Sreet in SFO and China Town. The cable car museum was an insight into how these amazing contraptions work...over the Golden gate bridge for a photo shop then on to Sausalito for lunch and boat ride back to the city....highly recomended tour

My husband booked this tour just a few days in advance of our travel. From beginning of the day to the sunset ending, we had an amazing time. Phil, our guide, was fun, knowledgeable and engaging throughout our trip. The selection of wineries visited were a good mix in size and style. Tasting room and tour staff very welcoming and informative. The whole day was fantastic! Great value! Highly recommend!!!!

Was hoping to book this tour for a party of 3 visiting San Francisco in August but oddly enough, they only sell tickets in even numbers. Read it a few times and thought it was strange so I tried to place an order and sure enough, the drop down menu only showed 2,4,6,8 etc. Bizarre.

We buy Alcatraz tickets months in advance and we have to pay for any unused tickets therefore we need to sell them in even quantities as they are purchased in even quantities. All too often, almost daily, we were left with 1 remaining unsold ticket that we could not get a refund for. Thank you for understanding and helping us keep our costs low so we can keep our tour costs low to our customers.
