Great, pity about the weather


"Je suis à présent un..."

January 16, 2018 - 

Je suis à présent un fidèle client de Big Bus que je recommande à 100 pour la ville de San Francisco et Sausalito automatiquement. Les guides sont géniaux et accessibles pour vous conseiller, les programmes sont pensés et repensés pour vous permettre de faire le meilleur tour possible et les quelques coupons de réductions offerts à l'achat du billet Mme Tussauds, etc.. ne sont pas négligeables.

"Totally enjoyed our San Francisco..."

December 13, 2017 - 

Totally enjoyed our San Francisco trip, the tour was awesome! Enjoyed the cool weather, especially traveling from Hawaii, we loved it! Mahalo!


"great opportunity to see and..."

December 1, 2017 - 

great opportunity to see and hear about San Fran especially for first time visitors. We purchased the Deluxe ticket which included Saulsalito and with that we ended up going over the Golden Gate Bridge 4 times and we loved it more each time. We would recommend staying on the tour the entire way your 1st and then decide which stop to hop on hop off.


"Laura Plantation was very interesting..."

November 27, 2017 - 

Laura Plantation was very interesting and our guide really knew the history of the Plantation. Spent about an hour and a half there. Oak alley is more well preserved but they didn't carry it off as well as the Laura Plantation. Also the time allowed at the Oak Alley was far too short - about 40 minutes.


"Can't fault the booking. Big..."

November 7, 2017 - 

Can't fault the booking. Big Bus were very good and it was a great way to see San Francisco. The commentary very useful in getting to know the areas as we travelled around. No problem with exchanging the voucher for tickets to travel. Only drawback is the bus travels round in one direction so you need to plan your journey. If you want to get to a stop that has been passed you will need to do the circuit to get to it.


"This was simply the best..."

November 7, 2017 - 

This was simply the best way to see San Francisco, the commentary was great, we did the complete circuit over the Golden Gate Bridge, got off and walked back over.


"Great way to see areas..."

November 3, 2017 - 

Great way to see areas you may not otherwise get to. Plus some fun history!


"Love it and do this..."

October 25, 2017 -

ALSO DID THE THE NIGHT TOUR--EXCELLENT


"San Fran was AWESOME!!!..."

October 19, 2017 - 

San Fran was AWESOME!!!


"This was GREAT! An easy..."

October 1, 2017 - 

This was GREAT! An easy way to get a tour of the entire area before going off on your own. Going across the Golden Gate Bridge on the top level of the bus was priceless.


"This was a fun tour..."

October 1, 2017 - 

This was a fun tour of the city. Doug did an excellent job of pointing out all the city sites and made it very interesting. As other reviewers had noted, it can be very windy when crossing the Golden Gate Bridge if you are in the open air top, so dress appropriately. We loved being in the open air top as it gave you a really good view and feel for beautiful, hilly, San Francisco. The bus drivers are amazing the way the negotiate the narrow streets and high traffic volume.


"The walking tours led by..."

September 24, 2017 - 

The walking tours led by Captain Morgan were very interesting and informative ... they helped make my first SF trip a memorable one!

September 24, 2017 - 

Amazing tour, great guide, super way to see SF highlights when pressed for time.


"Great way to see a..."

September 22, 2017 - 

Great way to see a city if you have limited time. Definitely do the Sausalito addition. Such a beautiful quant suburb.


"A very nice way to..."

September 6, 2017 - 

A very nice way to see and get around San Francisco. An awesome view of the Golden Gate Bridge if at the top of the bus.


"Loved this... spent our first..."

September 4, 2017 - 

Loved this... spent our first day on the buses to get acclimated to San Francisco. We went all 21 stops and then decided where we wanted to get off and on. The buses run all day and come about every 15 minutes. There is also a night time option. Great way to see many of the sights including the Golden Gate bridge.


"Great way to see the..."

September 3, 2017 - 

Great way to see the city.


"Wonderful!!!..."

August 29, 2017 - 

Wonderful!!!


"I have been to multiple..."

August 25, 2017 - 

I have been to multiple tourist spots and these bus tours are a GREAT way to get a feel for what city your in before going out and about!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!


"Takes you everywhere you want..."

August 24, 2017 - 

Takes you everywhere you want to go. It was great going across the bridge and hitting Sausalito for a change. Well worth it.


"Throughly enjoyed it. Great way..."

August 13, 2017 - 

Throughly enjoyed it. Great way to see San Fransico. Take an early tour and ride it all and then decide were you want to see on foot and hop off. Buses are very regular every 15 minutes or so. Make sure you have a jacket as it can be cold up on the bus.


"This was a fantastic way..."

August 9, 2017 - 

This was a fantastic way to view the entire city and then decide where you wanted to go back and visit. Our driver gave us all the information as we drove. It was knowledge given with entertainment. A must on your first or second day in San Francisco!!


"go for the gold..."

August 9, 2017 - 

go for the gold


"This is the best way..."

August 9, 2017 - 

This is the best way to see San Francisco. The people working for big bus are so friendly and accommodating. We booked the 2 day deluxe pass for 3 adults and 1 child. Our 9 year old had so much fun sitting on top exposed to the outdoors. Driving over the Golden Gate Bridge was so thrilling. I would highly recommend this tour.


"It is the best way..."

August 6, 2017 - 

It is the best way to get around San Francisco and experience so many of the sights. I found the buses to be timely and the employees very helpful and friendly. I would definitely book through Big Bus again.


"This is definitely the way..."

August 5, 2017 - 

This is definitely the way to view the city in one day! Bring layers as it is definitely cold and windy on the Golden Gate. Take the whole tour first time around and then get off at stops on the second time so you can be sure to get good seat for Golden Gate. Great trip.


"We purchased our tickets early..."

August 4, 2017 - 

We purchased our tickets early and it helped cut time at boarding. The only issue was the driver struggled scanning the voucher. We did the 2day deluxe pass. This took us all over San Francisco, over the Golden Gate Bridge, a night tour and to Sausalito and back. There was so much to see that we would have liked to add a third day but found we couldn't. We would have had to add a single day.


"I was there for 1/2..."

August 3, 2017 - 

I was there for 1/2 a day. I was amazed on the tour bus of the different culture and area in SF thanks HoHo Tour Bus great service


"awesome way to see highlights..."

August 1, 2017 - 

awesome way to see highlights of San Francisco -- had a very energetic tour guide too!


"If you have limited time..."

July 30, 2017 - 

If you have limited time in the city, then this is the best way to see everything! Another great thing is that you can get off the bus at any of the 20 point of interest stops. Tip - be sure to take a jackets with you when you hop on the bus. It gets very cold on the ride. SF typically stays under 70 degrees.


"Great tours! Wonderful way to..."

July 28, 2017 - 

Great tours! Wonderful way to get around the city to see all the highlights. Big Bus was the best tour bus and we bought the premium
package so we were able to see all of what we wanted and also ride all the old cable cars which were included in the premium package.


"Hop on Hop off is..."

July 17, 2017 - 

Hop on Hop off is our favorite way to get around and have an overview of a city. Interesting and fun.


"Awesome service, but it was..."

July 12, 2017 - 

Awesome service, but it was pointed out that Viators list of stops was out of date and needs updating. Made it a little difficult to keep track of where we were. Very helpful tour guides.


"A great wayto see the..."

July 9, 2017 - 

A great wayto see the city. You can get off at certain places and look around.


"Great way to get an..."

July 5, 2017 - 

Great way to get an overview of San Francisco. It was good to be able to get off explore an area and then get on a following bus. Even with the crowds for July 4 the waiting time was not too bad.


"Great idea to see the..."

June 27, 2017 - 

Great idea to see the city and very convenient. Only wish that I understood that you had to get to the Sausalito part of the trip early in the day in order to get on that portion, but I may not have read the stuff carefully!


"This was a great way..."

June 4, 2017 - 

This was a great way to see all the best of SF.


"this was a great tour..."

May 30, 2017 - 

this was a great tour of the city


"We purchased the 48 hr..."

May 17, 2017 - 

We purchased the 48 hr pass w Sausalito trolley ride and night tour. Great, inexpensive way to see the sights. Highly recommend this tour


"The only way to get..."

May 14, 2017 - 

The only way to get around and see places. The weather was not the best on one of days and extremely cold on the upper deck but we had no control over that. I tuned into Channel 2 for the tour, just thought some of the guides digressed.


"A bit cold and windy..."

May 12, 2017 - 

A bit cold and windy sitting on the open top deck going across the Golden Gate Bridge. Otherwise very good.


"I was on and off..."

May 7, 2017 - 

I was on and off the bus for 3 days in a row. Each time they would have people outside to help if you needed anything. You would
be told where you were and a short history of the location. I highly recommend this tour.


"Very good for getting around..."

April 24, 2017 - 

Very good for getting around and seeing major sites. Lived in the bay all my life never took one of these tours. I used BART and got on the bus that stopped near the Embarcadero station in the morning the bus stop is a short block or so away from the station took us less than five minutes to walk to it and the bus pulled right up when we got there. All the drivers and tour guides were very nice and helpful. Did not have to wait too long for buses, longest wait was about 25 mins. The buses were not overly crowded at all either.

The city was packed it was crowded, a lot of traffic and even a protest going on. I am glad I did not drive! It was good for not having to drive around and struggle to find and pay for parking. I visited a lot more places than I normally would if I was driving. I prefer it over driving into the city and I would recommend it for that reason alone I also recommend taking BART if you are not staying in SF.


"Awesome way to see and..."

April 11, 2017 - 

Awesome way to see and learn about the city. Loved it! Love the tour guide on the bus in the morning she was FANTASTIC!


"Wonderful to take and see..."

April 3, 2017 - 

Wonderful to take and see San Francisco - do the two day. We didn't have enough time with one day.


"Such a great way to..."

March 22, 2017 - 

Such a great way to introduce my 3 kids ages 9, 13, 15 to the city of San Francisco! Great flexibility and wonderful stops along the way. Highly recommend. Riding across the Golden Gate Bridge was especially cool in the top level. Awesome recorded tour too.


"Fun time and great way..."

March 19, 2017 - 

Fun time and great way to see SF.


"Great way for a first..."

March 17, 2017 - 

Great way for a first time visitor to see the city.


"Big Bus Blake and Eddie..."

March 15, 2017 - 

Big Bus Blake and Eddie were the best. Blake has great information on sights and a lot of humor along the trip. Eddie navigated the city safely and on time. Really enjoyed the entire trip. Blake also helped us fine the right trolley to get to Lombard street. Thanks guys!


"This is one of the..."

March 13, 2017 - 

This is one of the best tours I've done. The guide is very informative. He not only tells you about what you see on your tour but places you might like to eat, shows to see and other interesting things to do and see. I like that you can hop off spend as much time as you want and hop back on when you're done.


"My tours was for 2..."

March 5, 2017 - 

My tours was for 2 days, We enjoyed all places visited. The San Francisco city is excellent and can be visited many times. My great experience was, how many restaurants in the city, more than 3,000 and the menus are excellent.


"great way to see all..."

February 15, 2017 - 

great way to see all the sights and to stop on and go all the way around


"I'm sure the trip would..."

February 13, 2017 - 

I'm sure the trip would have been a lot more enjoyable if it was not in a downpour. We had a 48 hour ticket and road the night tour in rain coats. The entire time we were in San Francisco it rained. We did enjoy the tour as much as we could.


"Great way to experience San..."

January 14, 2017 - 

Great way to experience San Francisco. It was even more convenient for us because there was a Big Bus Hop-on-Hop-off bus stop right in front of our hotel.


"Friendly staff and on time.I..."

January 13, 2017 - 

Friendly staff and on time.I recommend Big Bus tours without hesitation


"OVER ALL VERY GOOD AND..."

January 12, 2017 - 

OVER ALL VERY GOOD AND INFORMATIVE


"Best way to see the..."

January 9, 2017 - 

Best way to see the city. Night tour and walking tours fun and informative.


"We had a great time...."

January 2, 2017 - 

We had a great time. I love San Francisco. The Hop on Hop off tour was excellant


"We went on the entire..."

December 23, 2016 - 

We went on the entire tour for an overview and then went back to places we wanted to see up close. Walking tours were quite entertaining and informative.


"Very informative and entertaining!..."

December 19, 2016 - 

Very informative and entertaining!


"Excellent...."

November 26, 2016 - 

Excellent.


"This was a good tour,..."

November 24, 2016 - 

This was a good tour, but take it early in the day, by the time afternoon comes around there is very little room on the buses, sometimes overcrowded and hard to find a seat too sit in. We had one instance where the driver stopped for us to get off and then abruptly started up again throwing us around on the bus that wasn't our best experience. It is a good way to get to different areas in the city if the bus wait isn't too long which sometimes it can be.


"is a great experience to..."

November 21, 2016 - 

is a great experience to see all the landmarks. Couldn't fault it - highly recommended


"I had a great time..."

November 14, 2016 - 

I had a great time in San Francisco. I used Big tour busoff and on and it was a great fun experience.There really was everything to see in the City without worrying how to get to one location to the next. Without a doubt, I highly recommend it if your looking to fun have on your vacation.


"We bough tickets before we..."

November 2, 2016 - 

We bough tickets before we left Australia and they were considerably less than half the price other passengers where paying when they got to SF. We had the 48 hour ticket which included the night tour to see the lights of SF. It was well worth paying for that alone. We spent the two days and one night wherever we wanted. The trip to Sausalito was really memorable and the photos taken from under the GG bridge in the evening were stunning. We have never seen photos of the bridge from this angle.


"Great staff and bus drivers...."

November 1, 2016 - 

Great staff and bus drivers. The WAY to get an overview of downtown San Francisco


"Prima Möglichkeit die Stadt kennenzulernen!..."

October 26, 2016 - 

Prima Möglichkeit die Stadt kennenzulernen! Gute Anbindungen, nettes Personal, reizende Anekdoten. Einfach empfehlenswert.


"Would highly recommend not missing..."

October 20, 2016 - 

Would highly recommend not missing the night lights tour. Wear you jacket.


"it was a great experience..."

October 10, 2016 - 

it was a great experience


"Great staff. Very organized. Could..."

October 8, 2016 - 

Great staff. Very organized. Could use more night tour busses.


"Fantastic tour, nothing was left..."

October 7, 2016 - 

Fantastic tour, nothing was left out. Highly recommended!


"Very good tour. Guide was..."

October 3, 2016 - 

Very good tour. Guide was EXCELLENT, he made the tour.


"One of the best tours..."

September 27, 2016 - 

One of the best tours ever. We do many hop on andhop off tours. The guides were wonderful and full of knowledge. The stops are very convenient and we never had to wait for more than 10 min to be picked up. Highly recommend!!!!!


"As usual the Big Bus..."

September 25, 2016 - 

As usual the Big Bus tour was great. The hop on, hop off access to the bus is great. The only issue we had a few times is that we couldn't get seats on top which is where you can really view things. The bottom of the bus tends to be a bit stuffy and you can't see out the windows as they are filmed.


"Fantastic way to see the..."

September 24, 2016 - 

Fantastic way to see the city without walking a million steps and taking a thousand cabs.


"This is a great way..."

September 18, 2016 - 

This is a great way to see the City. Once we got the hang of it, we were able to go all over. I would recommend to anyone doing this, that you stay on the bus with a tour guide through the entire trip, then decide the places to get off and see.


"Really amazing service. We got..."

September 14, 2016 - 

Really amazing service. We got on an off continually with our 2 day passes and all the guides were really knowledgeable and approachable.
Our night tour was particularly enjoyable and the guide Jacob was enormously entertaining. I very much enjoy a person with a dry sense of humour so couldn't have asked for a better guide!. His driver Larry seemed to know exactly what he was doing as well.
Would definitely recommend to anyone else looking to get a sense of San Francisco in a few days. Well worth it. Thank you!


"This is great for saving..."

August 30, 2016 - 

This is great for saving your feet in this hilly city. You can get your bearings and decide where you want to return for a better look around. Beware of the wind when going over the Golden Gate bridge. it is very strong and can be very cold.


"Very friendly drivers and informative..."

August 30, 2016 - 

Very friendly drivers and informative tour.


"Super trip! Antonio was great...."

August 29, 2016 - 

Super trip! Antonio was great.


"This tour was great to..."

August 27, 2016 - 

This tour was great to see the city with limited time in San Fran. And it goes over the Golden Gate Bridge, with the option to explore the other side, which was great. Try to get on a bus with an actual guide, who will give you insider tips about the city and each stop. Also, try to get on the bus early or at the beginning or end of the tour OR at a known busy spot where people will get off, this way you can get a seat on top of the bus. Beware though, if you're on the top during the ride across the bridge, it is very, very, very windy and cold.


"Wonderful way to get around..."

August 27, 2016 -

Great tour, we hit all the top spots. Great guides.


"Great way to see the..."

August 14, 2016 - 

Great way to see the city and stop when you have an interest and time. Getting a seat on the top is a real asset and there are options to move up and passengers depart. The guides were very helpful


"We love the HOP ON..."

August 14, 2016 - 

We love the HOP ON HOP OFF. Make sure you use the BIG BUS in San Francisco. They are the only one with the headsets in every bus. We made the mistake in the past. Look for BIG BUS

A great way to get an overview of the city as well as some of the key attractions. It worked very well for us


"An excellent trip which is..."

August 4, 2016 - 

An excellent trip which is great value for money.
The commentary as you make your way through San Francisco is informative and entertaining.
As it is hop on and hop off you can choose to visit the sites that interest with the added benefit of also seeing those which you may otherwise have missed.


"Interesting tour and comfortable...."

Interesting tour and comfortable.

Great way to get to know the city, what there is to offer and to travel around the main attractions


"Had a great time on..."

Had a great time on the bus tour. Would do it again.


"What a wonderful way to..."

July 19, 2016 - 

What a wonderful way to see San Francisco, It was nice cool and sunny day. Our tour guide in the morning was so knowledgeable about the city. We learned so much about San Francisco, then we got off in the Ashbury area, and after walking around, we got back on to another bus, and the tour guide was a young girl in her 20's, she was very funny and sometimes acted foolishly. We laughed at her remarks, but other than that, it's a great way to see the city and learn.


"Great! Tour guides were informative...."

July 14, 2016 - 

Great! Tour guides were informative. I'd go with them again!


"Great tour! with very funny/entertaining..."

July 8, 2016 - 

Great tour! with very funny/entertaining live tour guide Jacob and his driver buddy Jose. We had them during out night tour and it was fun. Must take the tour if you and #39;re in SF for couple of days. Just carry warm clothing it gets chilly on open double decker bus.


"Wonderful tours. Took the day..."

July 7, 2016 - 

Wonderful tours. Took the day tours throughout the SF/Sausilito areas and the night tour of the City and Treasure Island. We find it so convenient using the hop-on hop-off method to see any major city we visit. No traffic or parking issues nor getting lost. We hop-off whenever we come up to someplace interesting we want to see. Other than it was cold as heck over the bridges, we really enjoyed the whole 2 days.


"This was great. Well worth..."

This was great. Well worth the money
