We very very much enjoyed our tour. We were a party of 6 from America and the UK. The vehicle was comfortable and airy. Our tour guide Antonio was amazing. Very knowledgeable, helpful and polite. He showed us some fabulous sights of the city which we would have found difficult to get round on our own. He also recommended a lovely restaurant for us all to have lunch in at the end of our tour. Overall 1st class.

Fantastic tour 4hours covering all the must see San Francisco highlights. Eric the guide/driver is extremely knowledgeable and will even help cover other sights you wish. Lunch is a great spot for quality food.. your dropped off at Alcatraz Dock to end tour a great day out..well worth the cost we couldn't find anything else that matched this tour.

I loved it! Our tour guide Joseph was really knowledgeable about the history of SF. We explored places I would have never went to if I were on my own. Alcatraz was amazing also. I really had a good day
