Overall rating

4.5 / 5

Highly recommend to start right at 8:00am. Not enough time to see and do everything at each stop. So plan ahead which stop you want to get off at for activities, etc. vs. which stops you just want to drive through and see. Very convenient stops. Timely pick ups. Didn’t have to wait longer than 10 minutes. Highly recommended if you are traveling with people with walking impairment.

My experience was great! Employees were all kind and courteous and drivers were safe and sometimes humorous. However, I did buy this as part of a package so I did not know that it came with extra perks. For example, it included passes to Madame Toussad’s but we paid to get in earlier in the week. Maybe you could share that in someway well ahead of the activity.

Learned a lot of Alcatraz, Night tour was okay, HOHO bus was great, would have liked a stop at both sides of Golden Gate bridge to give an option to walk the GGB.

Great value for money.

We managed to see everything we wanted by jumping on & off this bus. Excellent value for money, especially as it included a trip to Alcatraz which was amazing.

The drive to Yosemite Park took 5 hours, the stay there was only 3 hours and the return trip 4 hours
