    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.

    Our bus commentator (not on every bus) was hilarious and informative. When we were on a bus without the live person, the recorded info was great to listen to as well. Doing the combo tour let us see alcatraz when tickets were sold out everywhere! Alcatraz was also a welcome surprise. So much cooler than anticipated. We listened to the audio and hopped back on the boat. Took about 1 hour. We were cramming our days so didn't have much more time to spend than that, but definitely worthwhile!

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!
