The tour itself was wonderful. So many stops and interesting information along the way. Our tour guide Maggie was phenomenal and very knowledgeable. She tried to set a slower pace for my mom who is not as easily mobile. However, it proved to be too much walking for my mom. I was able to finish it, but it is def a lot of walking up and down very steep hills. There is a fun trolley ride and a bus ride at two points along the tour. Lunchtime was a little hectic, as the location we stopped for lunch is very busy and it took up all of our time trying to get food. The afternoon part of the tour took us down Lombard street, Ghirardelli square and finally ended at fisherman’s wharf for a bay cruise. I would def recommend the tour but if you have ANY trouble walking, this is not the tour for you.
Our guide was excellent.The tour was well worth the money...The first half of our tour was very small it was only my husband and I and the tour guide....so it was like we had our own personal tour guide...he was extremely knowledgeable...he gave us a lot of history and background on many subjects..There is a lot of walking involved so be prepared...we were joined by 2 other people for the second half of the tour.It was a beautiful day and the great fellowship between all of us was immediate...this is a great tour..the bay cruise at the end is amazing..you get to see the golden gate bridge and Alcatraz up close!!!The food and shops in Chinatown are wonderful!!!
We did this tour on the first full day we were in San Francisco and we felt it was a great introduction to the city! Joseph was our tour guide and Archie was our driver and they made a great team with their combined knowledge from growing up in the area. Alcatraz was awesome and we were lucky enough to experience it during fleet week with the Blue Angels flying above us. Highly recommended activity!
Excellent trip. Loved the boat ride and the tour. Make sure you download the App before you get there for the audio tour and remember to bring a headset. Only downside was the return boat schedule is "flexible" - meaning it waited another 20 minutes past the scheduled time to capture some stragglers (but not all of them) who didn't know or didn't prepare for the leaving time.
It was amazing. We enjoy our tour very much!!!! We will definitely recommend it tobaour friends.
