I was very happy with this tour. I had never been to San Francisco and this helped me see everything and get a feel for the city. I learned a lot of interesting history and saw more than I would have on my own. Just remember to bring a coat! I knew it woukd be cooler than I am used to in Arizona, but I didn't expect to be so cold!

The times on the app are not followed. (Our 10:16am bus pulled away at 10:12 as we were walking up.) Some buses are not visible on the “real-time” app. Some of the stops were a significant distance from the attraction. (Lombard street required a 3 block walk uphill to see the crooked part). The buses were clean and comfortable enough and took us all over the city.

Kind and considerate staff. Great locations to hop off at and next busses to hop on to were quickly available. Audio tour was fun and informative. Check the weather and wear warm clothing if it's in the upper 50's. It was freezing going over the bridges and for the night tour.
