Wasn't sure what we were to expect on this tour but Charles and bus driver jack made for an awesome experience. Seeing things we didn't expect to see which was a bonus. Would highly recommend doing this tour especially if you get Charles. His stories are awesome!! Thank you Tower Tours and Charles for an awesome tour.

Muir Woods tour with John. He was very informative, knowledgeable and a safe driver. They have hotel pick up, but you are taken to the office location to confirm payment before boarding the bus. Bus was clean, comfortable and had a bathroom at the back. An hour & a Half may seem like a long time at the woods, but... More

This tour is very relaxing and also amazing. It's a lot different than the city tour as it goes more residential into the less 'touristy' areas so you get to see the real city of SF. The stop at ghiradelli square is great and gives you a nice hot cup of coco to sip a long the way. This was... More

They pick you up at your hotel and drop you back. Our tour lasted about 4 hours. I saw places in San Francisco that I had never seen but heard of and some I had never heard of. The city tour will stop at the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, Twin Peaks, and the Palace of Fine Arts. Try... More
