Antonio was my driver for the PM tour and apparently I missed the day cruise (email said I was on the PM cruise at 2) but anyway - he made the bus tour delightful and Grayline graciously let me take a shorter bay cruise at 5:30 to Sausalito and Tiburon which had spectacular views of the Bay at night! Couldn’t have had a better time!!

We loved the bus tour and felt like it was a great value. Our guide Josh was very informative. He provided used just the right amount of historical info/context, trivia, pop culture and humor. We saw a ton of landmarks and felt like there was not a dull moment. Josh was also an excellent driver. The bay cruise was a bit disappointing because we were not expecting the recorded tour and we found it difficult to hear because of some loud passengers near us on the boat.

The activity of Bay Cruise was good. City tour with the guide Mr.George was excellent and I appreciate his sharing of information with all of us.The hotel pickup, office communication and dispatch management is totally mesh and not satisfied. The new comers facing lot of problem and tour management is not bothering and no guidance.

Enjoy a four-hour guided tour of San Francisco. At each stop, you’ll have the chance to get off the bus and see the Super Sights. Along the way, your fully narrated tour will show you San Francisco like you’ve never seen it before!

Tour the city from the bay to the ocean, with photo stops at key locations. Enjoy great views and visit famous attractions including the Golden Gate Bridge. Stopping at Twin Peaks will give you a breathtaking 360-degree view of the city from 1000 feet above sea level. Opt to upgrade your tour to include a bay cruise or a visit to the Aquarium of the Bay to complete your panorama of San Francisco from land and sea!

Traveling through the Golden Gate Park, we’ll point out seasonal flower displays, look for bison grazing, and ride past windmills overlooking the Pacific. Learn about San Francisco’s early settlements, from Native Americans to Spanish missionaries and the frenzied days of the gold rush as you drive through the once infamous Barbary Coast. Then, see San Francisco’s iconic Victorian Homes as we take you through the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.

End the tour back at San Francisco's beautiful waterfront and take in the superb vistas of Alcatraz Island and San Francisco Bay before embarking on a 60-minute Bay Cruise past the famous Pier 39 sea lions and along San Francisco’s historic waterfront, revealing the city’s fascinating skyline. After you sail under the Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll circle Alcatraz Island and see every angle of this mysterious island. Other attractions include Angel Island, the Ellis Island of the west, and the magnificent skyline of San Francisco.
