Eine super Sache und eine Pflicht für alle, die das erste Mal dort sind. Man kann sich einen super Überblick über die Stadt verschaffen, selbst wenn man erstmal nicht aussteigt. Die Guides waren alle super freundlich. Die Nachttour hat uns auch richtig gut gefallen nach Treasure Island rüber. Trotz allem ein Stern Abzug, weil die Preise schon sehr teuer sind. Es ist zwar einiges inklusive wie z.B. Fahrräder oder eine Tour durch Chinatown und eben die Nachtfahrt, aber man schafft meist eh nicht alles mitzunehmen.

This was a very informative tour. You did have to do a lot of walking if you got off at one of the stops. The actual landmarks were spread out from the bus stop. The headphones worked very well with the audio and that was much better than a person using a microphone.

The San Francisco Big Bus is great! very informative, it allows you to learn a lot about the city while strolling quietly and the stops are well placed and the buses run regularly (every 20min) San Francisco is small enough to be able to get off and enjoy the tourist areas. I recommend for people who spend little time in this city.
