This is without a doubt the worst thing you can spend your money on in San Fransisco. It is advertised as ‘hop on, hop off’ bus tours but it’s anything but frequent enough to hop on and off from. As the day progresses the buses...More

The night tour runs every night so no problem there. No places are reserved. They tell you what time to be there so just get there early so you aren't last in the queue.
