First, I will say that this tour was only booked in order to do the Alcatraz tour. The bus portion was on August 24, 2013. We had two days but read on and you will see why we didn't use the second day.
We started out on a bus with a great tour guide, Frederic I believe his name was. Immediately thought this was a great idea. We stopped at golden gate park, then got back on and that is where it went bad.the tour bus driver was really nice but the guide was absolutely pompous. We got to the golden gate bridge and there was a traffic mess. Leann, being as self important as she is, decided to get off the bus to yell at the cops to tell them they need to do their job. Great!
Then we have to back up 10 times to even make a corner. We pull up to the stop and there are 20+ people waiting to get on. Apparently they were waiting for an hour or so. They were annoyed and rightfully so. The buses only run randomly so there isn't a flow of buses to pick you up. They just make it sound that way. Leann was arguing with some guy who didn't speak english well and started barking in front of everyone. She started saying "I'm not going to do this! Don't touch me!" we were sitting right there and saw that he was just trying to get on because he was irritated he was waiting for ever.
Then we let 4 people on and get on our merry (read as suicidal) way. We are then subject to leann's holier than thou attitude. Did you know she lived in Rome? Based on how she describes people working in the Internet companies you would think she may have been fired from one... We also got to listen to her tell everyone that people wait to be on her tours. I can tell you that the guys behind us and my 3 friends would wait to NOT be on her tour. Also i question a statement like that because you give tours, are you really that self important that you think people who have never been to the city would actually ask for you? We didn't even stay on until the end because we couldn't stand to listen to her. I legitimately would have thrown myself overboard to get away from her.
FYI between golden gate bridge and ghirardelli sq we couldn't let anyone else on because it was full. They all yelled about waiting an hour for a bus as well... Absolutely awful end to that trip.
