We had a great guide who knew the city well. Rode all the way around the first time to decide where we wanted to get off.

Best thing to do in the city. Easy and a little chilly in November. Great view and very nice drivers.

You MUST do this as one of the first things you do if you aren’t familiar with where to go. This is the GREATEST way to learn the area, see allllll that there is to do and learn the history of so many places and people.This was our Honeymoon destination and felt so relieved learned WHERE to go after this tour. You can hop off to explore those areas and hop back on as many time as you’d like for the day until you’ve had your fill + you get breath taking views and feel the chilly air and experience the cities in safety without any parking hasslesWe did the hop off and on tour + the Muir Woods tour - I wish we could have spent more time “hiking” in the woods but it was enough time to get breathtaking pictures. The tour to the woods was in a shuttle which personally I felt safer than I would have felt sitting on top of the double bus hahaIf you are lucky at all, you will get Douglas as your driver. 10/10 he’s incredibly knowledgeable and knows the city like the back of his hand - he certainly helped make this trip for us a memorable experience

This was the first time I used a hop-on-hop-off bus in a bigger city. I really great way of seeing the most of San Francisco. BUT I do recommend you to take more than one day because there is A LOT to see and do in San Francisco. I let the bus drive me to different locations and hopped off at Palace of fine arts, Alamo square (painted ladies), Fishermans wharf, and more... You can hoose between a lot of language and will learn a lot of San Francisco during the totally time of two hours (a complete round tour without hopping off is about two hours long). I surely will use this kind of sightseeing on future journeys.

The tour gave a great overview of the city and its major attractions. Hop-on hop-off saved us a lot of time trying to figure out which buses to take.
