What to Expect
Start your morning by getting picked up from Union Square or Fisherman's Wharf in a comfortable bus. Head west toward Ocean Beach for a scenic drive through Golden Gate Park. See the Victorian and Queen Anne mansions that define San Francisco architecture, and travel along the historic Barbary Coast while hearing tales from California’s gold rush days. Admire the historic Palace of Fine Arts, snap panoramic photos from the top of Twin Peaks, check out one of America's original Chinatowns, and gaze at Alcatraz Island from Fisherman's Wharf. Optional upgrades include a cruise on San Francisco Bay to take in the sights from a different vantage point; a half-day bike rental to cruise around at your own pace; or admission to the Aquarium of the Bay to learn about native marine creatures. Your tour also includes a free afternoon walking tour that explores downtown, Chinatown, and the Financial District where you can see even more landmarks.

The guide didn’t do much for me to begin with but making a joke about suicides when passing the Golden Gate Bridge was the icing on the cake. Suicide is not funny.

The tour was...ok. I wish we had gotten more out of it. Driver (Don) was humorous, despite a foggy cold morning tour. However, the tour was really abbreviated (not the driver Don's fault, as he wasn't even aware until the passengers going on the Alcatraz tour informed him that

Dear IntrepidSherri, Thank you for posting your opinion on our tour. I deeply regret our route through the most important sights in San Francisco did not live up to your expectations. Your comments are highly valuable to improve our services. Rest assured I will be sharing them with the corresponding team to see whether there is room for improvement.
