Big Bus San Francisco Hop-On-Hop-Off Open Top Tour and Alcatraz Combo

Just riding in the open top bus was cool. Seeing all the sites and having it explained to you was a plus. Golden Gate Bridge. Nuff said. Just bring your hoodie because it does get cold and windy as you near the bridge. We went on a 60 degree day.

The bus had a problem with low tire pressure and John Slater Jr did a great job of getting everyone off the bad bus and onto a replacement bus safely…he is a very good communicator. This guy adds value to your business….he spent lots of time explain things to us.

We were in San Francisco one day and did the Red Bus and Alcatraz tour. So informative and interesting. Got to see much of the city without worrying about driving and parking.

Combo is okay but not to do on the same day. Big bus isn’t realllly a hop on and off. The ride is good though.

Loved Alcatraz. It was well worth going. It was nice that you could go at your own pace. Bought a signed book written by a prisoner.

Took a bit of time to get checked in at Big Bus then again at Alcatraz but was a great day. The downside was by they time we did our 1130am boat and the island we didn't get back to the terminal until after 3pm and the last tour bus runs at 5pm. We took a cab to Salsilito to meet up with the rest of our friends and were only able to make it back tot the main terminal before the day was over.

We planned a fun 2 day trip to San Francisco and the big bus and Alcatraz excursion were fantastic. Six kids were mesmerized at the rock. Bus narrator and driver were fabulous. Funny and knowledgeable. Wish we knew to activate bus day early, we didn’t get the most out of it since it is for 24 hrs.

We absolutely loved our tour! We did the Alcatraz combo and spent our whole day doing the Big Bus red route and wished our day was longer! We had Doug for our bus tour and Peter for our Chinatown tour and felt very thankful for both of them! Both were so knowledgeable and made us laugh many times. We learned so much about the city and got some great recommendations on what to do on our non-tour days! Totally worth the money!!
