Our trip was wonderful. We weren't quite sure if we could get on the bus at any time to start the tour but other than that everything was perfect. It's the best way to learn and see the city. I highly recommend this tour.

Big Bus Blake is an amazing guide. We took the walking tour to Chinatown with him and he does a great job. Even in a rainy day he was energetic and fun.

Our driver, David was welcoming and super helpful. The weather was wet, windy and cold but the tour of the city was still good.

5 of 5 Narration was excellent. Learned a lot about history. Highly recommend. Loved being on top even though it was a tad chilly over Golden Gate Bridge!!! We were warned to go downstairs though because of winds off Pacific.

I loved the information of the audio tour. I've been to the city but the audio portion had so much insight into the diverse history of the city. Highly recommend but bring a light jacket.

I recently did this tour while in the San Fran area. Wear hat, glasses, and hoodie if planning on riding on top.This is perfect if you want to see all that the city has to offer and are short on time. To truly take full advantage of this tour, I would depart on the first bus out. This allows time to get off at prime location spots and get back on without getting caught in the cold and dark. The next bus always came within 15/30 minutes of each other. The app is only good for tracking which is a great bonus. There is no second guessing where the next bus is. I recommend this tour for everyone.

The beauty of San Francisco was very evident. Easy to get on and off- made 3 stops and could walk to the next stop with 4 young kids.
