“What a ride !!!”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

as a person that lives in plans, trains, and automobiles, I see a million things good, the bad, and the awesome.......Willie was our driver and he was not only a safe and cautious driver he was knowledgeable and compassionate about the city of San Francisco - I Have lived here and done tours on other buses and with other groups and by far Willie was awesome !
Thanks again for the ride, I will not only recommend the "Super Sightseeing Tour" I will tell them to ask for Willie

Our sightseeing trip around San Francisco was complete because we picked the right company and Willie!! Willie was our bus driver. He made the whole trip exciting. He LOVES the city and that made it even more exciting for us. He took us places that I do not believe that we would have gone with a car. He likes to sing (don't quit your day job Willie!!) and has answers for everything!! We took our trip on Friday and on Saturday we had booked a Whale watching cruise. We got lost getting to the Pier so I called Willie(he gave us his business card) and he gave me perfect directions to the Pier. Thank you Willie for a very exciting tour of Fabulous San Francisco!!

“Poor service.”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

We bought tickets from the aquarium counter at fisherman's wharf. We were told that there would be a bus in about 20-30 mins but we waited about 50 mins with no sign of the bus. When we went back to the counter, the service staff unhelpfully told us that they only sold tickets and we had to call the number on the brochure. When we rang, we were told to continue waiting and there would be another bus coming by. We were so fed up we had asked for our tickets to be refunded. I wouldn't recommend this tour as you would probably have to wait at least an hour if you missed the bus. (this would probably mean that if you 'hopped' off at any point it could be an hour before next bus arrives.)

“Monterey, Carmel tour was just awesome...”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

we did Monetery, Carmel, Pebble beach tour with Super sightseeing tour. Hotel pick up-drop off option was included. hotel pick up was on time, bus tour started on time. we had some good time driving though scenic routes adjacent to pacific ocean. visited monterey beach, aquarium, then took 17 mile scenic pebble beach drive. at last we ended our tour with marvellous view of sunset over carmel beach. tour guide was very knowledgable and allowed good time to explore places.

Highly recommended!

“Try to catch a ride with Willie”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

My first time in San Francisco at the end of October 2011 was so enjoyable thanks to a bus tour with the driver Willie Payton. If you get lucky enough to hop onto one of his bus routes, you'll not only be very well informed, you'll have lots of fun and laughs! Love his impressions and singing and general overall happy spirit. Some of his jokes are even funny too (LOL). Overall, a wonderful experience that I'll always remember.
