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

This is the worst sightseeing tour I have EVER done in the world! If I could have given it zero stars I would have!! The tour is advertised as multi lingual, however we weren't even provided with headphones never mind a commentary, although a Ross dress for less was pointed out near pier 39! We had an unscheduled stop on... More

Maybe I was lucky but I had a much better experience than other reviewers. I had a few hours before my flight so this was the best way to see the whole city, including going over the Golden Gate Bridge with a 15 minute stop for photos. This is a great way to experience the bridge and the amazing city... More

Our guide was Steve with the hat. We had so much fun and were able to hop off and on. Bus comes about every 30 minutes. I recommend you do this at the beginning of your trip to San Francisco and you will know what areas you want to spend more time.

This is a typical hop on/hop off bus tour hitting the highlights of San Fran. Nice way to see get familiar with the city and learn a little history. I picked this one because the price was the cheapest and they all go to the same places. The traffic was so bad on the saturday that I did this tour... More

First and foremost the San Francisco deluxe tours also goes by the name Hop On Hop Off Deluxe tours. It shares a similar red colour scheme with several other tour companys so make sure you do not get on this one. (Several tourists attempted to get on by mistake.) Before we boarded we were advised there was a tour. This... More

Wish we had read Trip Advisor before booking ourselves on this nightmare of a bus trip. First bus was more of a "shed", broken seats, ripped coverings which results in you getting a very wet derrière or back and sound system so bad that you could not hear a thing (so what would be the point of a city tour...
