What people are saying about San Francisco

Great way to spend a day in San Francisco and cover a whole lot.

This tour is a great way to see three iconic San Francisco landmarks in a day without feeling to hurried. Our guide. Eddie was great, particularly for the walk through Chinatown which is clearly dear to his heart. On this matter he was very knowledgeable, and we went back to sample his food recommendation which were very tasty. Doing Alcatraz and cable car trip in our own time was a good way of doing it. Only minor complaint was the limited directions on how to find the lower terminus of the California Street cable car. That could of been made clearer.

Alcatraz way cooler than expected, bus a great way to see the city!

Our bus commentator (not on every bus) was hilarious and informative. When we were on a bus without the live person, the recorded info was great to listen to as well. Doing the combo tour let us see alcatraz when tickets were sold out everywhere! Alcatraz was also a welcome surprise. So much cooler than anticipated. We listened to the audio and hopped back on the boat. Took about 1 hour. We were cramming our days so didn't have much more time to spend than that, but definitely worthwhile!

Great way to see plenty of San Francisco!

The Alcatraz tour was really well organised and very interesting especially the audio tour of the prison. The ticket for the bus was definitely worth the money as we got to see lots of the city and Sausalito. The guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining. The only criticism was the occasional long waits to get on the bus as they were very busy but the operators did their best to get everyone on as quickly as they could. I would recommend this tour.

Great, personalized tour of San Francisco

We had a great time on our tour with Mario. Even though our group was comprised of people who ran the gamut of newcomers to old hands in San Francisco, he showed us parts of the city that none of us had seen, and gave us great suggestions for things to do after the tour. His warm-hearted and smiling presence was a special bonus for the tour. Highly recommended!

Great experience, definitely recommend this!!

Mario was an amazing guide and a great story teller! We drove to some beautiful corners of San Francisco and Sausalito, he shared lots of info about the places we were driving through and he even helped me pick some fine Californian wines to bring back home. Thank you Mario, I truly enjoyed this tour and hope to see you the next time I’ll be in town :-)
