Fun trip, we had a problem with our earphones and they quickly sorted it by letting us go on another bus. Blake was a very entertaining tour guide

Signed up for having something to do on a Saturday night in San Francisco. Also, my husband’s birthday so wanted to do something. As it got closer to the day to go was going to skip it. So glad you went. Blake made it fun! Lawrence was a great driver! Blake made us laugh. It was not that lecture style tour but still got all sorts of great historical info.

They don’t really disclose if you sit on bottom you basically see nothing which is what we did. Also the only window left had moisture and something between panes so was almost impossible to see out of unless you put your nose to the window. The guide was great and we opted to ride back to Union Square which Gabe a bit more tour and put us right by hotel which was an unexpected surprise.

Nice tour
Noise bus and wind So we hardly nderstood anything the guide told
The first come first serve system for getting on the bus doesnt garantie good places

Quite disappointed with this tour, it stated in the highlights that it would be 2 hours, it was only 1.5 hours and also we didn't see or go past some of the places mentioned in the itinerary which was why I booked this tour. The tour guide was entertaining which made the experience a little more bearable.
To summarize this tour is not value for money and would not recommend.
