Easy way to get around the city and learn about it. If you have the whole day, I'd recommend taking the full circuit without hopping on & off. Then go around again getting on and off in the places you're most interested in. I've found (by using this company in other cities), that if you start getting on/off at a lot of the stops, you may not have time to spend at ones toward the end. Of course, if you do this, you'll spend your whole time with one driver. I've never had a bad one, but each one is unique and has his/her own approach to the job. It's fun experiencing at least 2-3 different ones. These tours are a really good way to learn your way around and to get around without monkeying around with cabs, ride-shares, buses, parking, etc. so they are economical too.

This is one of the best hop on hop off tours I've done. We've used the big bus company in other cities, and this was fantastic. We were able to see everything San Francisco has to over, including going over the Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street, Fisherman's Wharf and so much more. Our ticket also included a evening tour, which took us over the Oakland Bay Bridge, which is equally stunning in it's own right, and gave us beautiful views of downtown San Francisco. We would highly recommend this tour.
