    An easy and inexpensive way to get a lovely panoramic view of the San Francisco skyline and the Golden Gate. Spend a couple hours exploring low key Sausalito

    Used BART for the first to get from the airport to the hotel. It was very inexpensive and very easy to use. The airport makes it very convenient to get to the BART location at the international terminal.. The train stops at many locations in SF on its way to Oakland. The cost was 1/3 the cost of a taxi or ride-share. Took about 30 minutes to get to downtown SF. Going back to the airport was just as easy.

    The water taxi is a great service, I would like to caution you if your old disabled or un-physically fit, it is difficult to board this boat. I will never ride it again because although the boat and the service is pleasant they have to do something about getting on and off this boat. See pictures.

    A little as USD 5 per day for multiple rides on 3 modes of transportation (Bus, Tram, Metro Train) except Cable Cars to move around the city.

    The buses are punctual with friendly and helpful drivers while the tram or street cars has 2 lines - F-Market & Wharves Streetcar Line covering places of interest of both historic and modern as follows:

    The Castro District
    Upper Market & Civic Center
    Union Square & Convention Area
    Financial District
    Ferry Building & The Embarcadero
    Pier 39 & Fisherman’s Wharfs

    A great way to explore the places mentioned above as we can also hop-on and off as much as we like in a day.

    I went to see the San Francisco Maritime Historical Park - Hyde Pier area. At this pier is several boats; one of which is the Eureka Steam Ferry.

    The Eureka Steam Ferry is a side wheel paddle steamboat built in 1890.

    I purchased my admission to tour the Eureka and other boats there.

    My husband and I stayed in Napa for 3 days. We booked a 2 day Napa & Sonoma wine tour with Boundless Tours. Barak helped make tasting reservations for us which made it a lot easier, and we loved the wineries he chose for us. During the tour Barak shared a lot of interesting information about Napa Valley history and wine culture. He gave us great recommendations for restaurants, and places to see. We will definitely book with Boundless Tours again on our next visit to the wine country.

    This was a wonderful tour! Dustin is a great tour guide/driver and made the tour really fun! He was very knowledgable and answered lots of questions too. The small group was very international (Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, England and USA) and we all got along great. The open air van was really fun and made the drive enjoyable. We visited the Golden Gate Park, 4 different vineyards, a bakery plus had lunch at one of the vineyards. Each vineyard was unique so it didn't feel repetitious. The last winery included a brewery too which was fun!. The ferry ride home was perfect and we didn't get stuck in the traffic. It's an all day tour yet well worth it!

    It was my first time using this service, and based on some great Yelp! reviews, my expectations were high. I'm glad I wasn't disappointed! I booked it for a trip from our home to SFO because we wanted at 4:45am pickup to make a very early flight more tolerable. I was sick of calling taxis at that time, wondering if the dispatcher was sleeping or what sort of cab would show up at that hour. The Pleasant Limo driver showed up on time (even early, actually) and he was polite, professional, and the car was clean and beautiful. The ride was a breeze and took the stress out of the whole experience. I would totally use them again!

    We got picked up in San Francisco for a 2 day trip to Napa and the surrounding area. Sodo our driver was wonderful. On time and very helpful. We used this company for 2 days while touring Napa wineries. We loved our driver so much that we hired him to drive us around on our last day in San Francisco! Highly recommend!!

    Every time I have guest in town and want to visit wine country i call up Cardinal. They are so accommodating! This last trip I booked a trip to visit a few wineries in Sonoma with a few friends. Lonny, our driver was not only punctual but he offered to detour from our schedule to find us a drive through that had breakfast. Highly recommend!
