San Francisco Here I Come

I would suggest all visitors take a ride on The Big Bus while visiting San Fran. You get to enjoy the true flavor of the great city while receiving a narration of the most famous sites/areas! Hop on Hop off is an extra bonus!!!

This tour was awesome and very informative. We went by many different areas around San Francisco, so if you choose to actually hop off, there are a lot of places to explore. I'd definitely book again. I think a 2 day pass is best for this tour.

Weekend only

They advertise Friday to Monday, but it appears that they operate an extremely limited schedule on Monday making it effectively impossible to use, with wait times exceeding 90 minutes. We ended up having to Uber or walk because the buses never came. For the weekend, it was the average hop-on hop-off experience.

Worse than a ZERO! Absolutely the worst!

If I could leave a zero I would bevy that is what this deserves!! We booked a tour with your company on the evening of Friday July 24th for (the next day)The day trip on Saturday the 25th beginning at 9am. It was for 2 adults and one child totaling $227. We live Georgia and are in California on a business trip with my husband staying in Nevada City. We planned our Saturday off, paid $230, drove almost three hours only to find a sh*t sign on your door that said the tour was canceled. I called the bogus number listed on your app and to no surprise no one answered and the mailbox was full. With more pissed customers I can only guess. You knew you were “closed do to covid19” when you allowed the booking to go through, gave me a confirmation and took the money out of our account. When I checked the site before I booked it said you were in operation, that masks were required and social distancing requirements were in place. This INFURIATES me. You have wasted our time, gas, and now I’m wasting even more time to get our money back. I will be calling the bank Monday morning about the charge, but I suggest a rush on our refund. I will also contact the BBB and be sure to leave a review of our experience and tag your Social media. Anyone who knowingly treats their customers this way doesn’t deserve business.
