Tour was lacking
David_G
, Jun 2022
I thought that this was a City of San Francisco tour. We didn’t get to dee much of the actual city. We saw some pretty magnificent views. The tour was outsourced to another tour company. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area, but did’ get to see much of the tour. I thought that the tour guide talking about his personal life so much was out of line. He kept talking about pride and his preference. It was obvious what that was before he told it over and over. We were very disappointed in that tour. We have gone with Viator several times and had great experiences. This one fell pretty short of the bar that had been set on previous tours

If you are short on time this is the best tour for you. You get to see all the highlights of San Francisco in one day. Our tour guide Sully was wonderful, you could tell he was very passionate about his job and very knowledgeable. I love that he would take his time and allowed us to stop and take pictures and even offered to take them for us. Muir Woods and Alcatraz were my favorites.

Muir Woods was fantastic! And of course the Painted Ladies! There was so much to see! Our tour guide Ro was a pleasure to spend the day with. We added Alcatraz to the day, it was a perfect was to end the trip. And Ro had a great recommendation for a spot to have dinner in China town at R & G Lounge!! Would do it all again!

We could not understand the tour guide. His voice was muffled through the microphone. We could only hear 50 percent of what he said
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are very apologetic that our auditory system seemed to be failing. We have just replaced the microphones for all the vehicles. We are sad to hear you had a "long day," as we hope for all of our guests to have a full day, full of recommendations, fun stories, historical data, and pretty views. We hope you will join us again the next time you go to San Francisco. The problem has been remedied. Thanks, Billy

The tour was fantastic. Roger was an amazing tour guide. He provided insight to many of the place we drove by. He stopped at several places not on the tour so we could get a better look and take photos. He was entertaining while providing information about SF. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who want to know more about the city.

The trip was amazing. I would highly recommend this experience. The only negative was I felt we didn’t have enough time to explore Alcatraz. One would really need 4 or more hits ti get the full experience.

Perfect way to see the whole city in a day before exploring in your own. Really helpful and chatty guide, sully was soooo friendly and knowledgeable, really enjoyed being out with him and he’s a really careful considerate driver too. We took amazing pictures and made epic memories that we couldn’t have done all of that without this tour. Thank you Sully and Dylan’s tours.
