My cousin and I were at fisherman's wharf and specifically asked the driver, if the tour went in front of the painted ladies houses. The driver told us yes, he went in front of them. Turns out, tour buses are not allowed on that stretch of road. We asked if we could just pay for the 2 hour tour because... More

On approaching Union Square I was initially going to book with City Sightseeing but a girl from Deluxe approached me first. Polite, not pushy, explained the product then gave me a map & left me to my decision. Looking at the map it seemed it went to all the places City Sightseeing did but was a lot cheaper. In the...

If you are hoping to see San Francisco by open top bus, beware before booking with this company. Their timetable is subject to change on a daily basis with no way of checking what those times might be. It is hit and miss if a driver stops to let you off at an advertised stop (or even tells you of... More

Because I bought tickets at 12.30pm we were given 2 days for the price of 1 so good value. Went with a couple of different drivers over the 2 days and found them all to be extremely knowledgeable about San Francisco. They told us so much trivia and history on the area like which comedians started out at a particular... More

At the end of the day this takes you to the same places, but without the pizazz of the big bus company. The bus we were on was old and had seen better days but was comfortable enough. We did get to go over the bridge and the driver/guide was informative about the sights we passed. We stayed on so... More

We toured SF by bus this past week and it was great! The bus was safe and the guide was very informative, yet informal and funny. Highly recommend it!

We were mislead into buying a two day tour which was meant to include four lines. Turns out that only 1 line runs during the day and a 2nd at night for about 2 hours. We complained to Paul, and were treated to the rudest customers service we have ever experienced. We were eventually refunded half our money but had... More

I agree with many of the comments from other reviewers. It was raining outside and inside the bus. Water poured in wet the seats. Water came through light fittings. The brakes made a terrible noise and shuddered like mad. The poor driver kept apologising. The bus fogged up and we could see nothing. To top it off we waited for... More

This is the worst tour operator in the city. I tried to complain but the phone numbers on the card are a scam as well. 1 sells medical alert device and the other just a voce box. They are broken down buses, inexperienced tour guides, the woman driver told us where to buy cheap items at salvation army/good will and... More

It was just a blast to get this tour, our guide was very knowledgeable of San Fran and it's history. The ability to hop on-hop off with unlimited jumps over 2 days gave us the opportunity to see and experience this wonderful city. We did the full tour first, then decided to use the hop off feature to visit and... More
