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.

Easy to use, busses were clean, would do again!

Amazing service and the best way to see the city. So many stops to fill your day and busses were very regular. I recommend looking at the list of stops before going and not just hitting up the main places, but going to the less popular places too 10/10 go to the tea gardens and the palace of fine arts Would do this again for sure

dissappointrd that there was not live guide

Although the idea sounded great, having only recordings & no live guide was disappointing, I feel that feature was EXTREMELY MISTEPRESENTED In all the ads and write ups. As a result felt overpriced for what was actually received, ended up getting off his half way through and not Get back on,
