GPS Talking Tour Cars: Chinatown/Downtown Loop
- Duration: 1 hour
Per group up to 2
Was really smart to do the early bird route at 9am. I should've gotten there by 845 to start the route at exactly 9am because it's definitely more than 3 hours to do the whole route. They charge $19 for every 15 minutes over or $63 for each hour over the reservation. The directions on the buggy were either hard to hear or hard to navigate because I'd miss turns and end up using my own phone's GPS to get back to the store. Would totally recommend overall and learned a lot about San Francisco from the ride.
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!
My food tour guide was amazing! She took us to the best restaurants, temples and a tea tasting at the end of the tour that was so much fun! I will never forget Chinatown, the history, murals and food that I have never had the opportunity to try before. The food was so delicious! I was so glad she sent us a list of all the places we went so that I could visit them again. I would recommend this to anyone.
All you need to get the San Francisco experience. Great that the big bus tour can run over three days ( three tours on that package and you do not have to do them at the same time as the hop on hop off bus. ( wish I’d known before as was in San Francisco only for 3 days and couldn’t do the Salsalito tour. Tour guides knowledgable professional and interactive. Very good
Great tour! Good locations and good tour guides. I wish my Alcatraz tour was not smack in the middle of the day (1:00) because I was unable to actually use the bus stop at any bus stop because it takes 2.5 hours to just ride the entire loop.
