Our guide Pat was super friendly. He made the day very enjoyable and his love for San Francisco was infectious. We had plenty of time at each stop to take photos and look around. Pat would even take the pictures of your group if you wanted. The tour had a little of everything and it was money well spent we got the best of San Francisco is one day. The group was small enough that we didn’t feel removed for the action like sometimes can happen on big tours. The bus was clean and Pat even brought some snacks for the group. The tour does start and end at different locations but they are within walking distance and end of the tour is right down the street from Pier 39 so you can stop and visit the seals on your way back. Durning the tour Pat gave suggestions as to places to eat in the city and his recommendations were spot on. Overall this was an excellent way to experience San Francisco and I would definitely book.

The San Francisco tour was a small group. The guide, Sully, was efficient and knowledgeable. He shared a great amount of San Francisco history. Alcatraz was somewhat disappointing but I am glad I went.
