I was very happy with this tour. I had never been to San Francisco and this helped me see everything and get a feel for the city. I learned a lot of interesting history and saw more than I would have on my own. Just remember to bring a coat! I knew it woukd be cooler than I am used to in Arizona, but I didn't expect to be so cold!

2 things to improve: they should give you a map when you first get on so you know which stops are closest to the sites you want to see. And both headphone jacks were on the same side, so my husband's cord was stretched across me the entire time.

The only way to see San Francisco, no worries about the traffic. Excellent narration and history of the city.

The staff were so nice , I really love it , thank you
