A very good tour, however we were lead to believe it was a tour of San Francisco but it turned out to be only 30% San Francisco and the other 70% the Muir Woods and the city of Sausalito which are great places but we had already been to both. Alcatraz was very interesting. The tour guide Patrick is excellent. the tour operator should make it clear what you are going to be touring.

We always do a full day tour while visiting a new city and this one didn’t disappoint! Our tour guide was Patrick and he was very knowledgeable, funny and super friendly. Offered to take photos for those on the trip so we didn’t have just an endless amount of selfies. This was an all around fabulous day and we saw everything on our list while visiting the Bay. Water and granola bars were also available which was a life saver since we planned on buying throughout the day. The shuttle was comfortable and we enjoyed seeing this amazing city! Patrick also recommended several restaurants in the area, which we chose Firenze by Night and it was AMAZING! The service was so amazing that you would have thought we were celebrities.

An absolute blast! Patrick was an amazing tour guide, full of fascinating tidbits about San Francisco, and great recommendations. The only thing I would have added would have been to let us out at city hall for some pictures, but given the limited time and security of the area, I definitely could see why we didn't stop. Thank you again Patrick for a great day!
