This tour was AMAZING!!! Being my friend’s and I’s first time in San Francisco, it was a great way to see a huge majority of the city in a short amount of time. The lookout points were breathtaking. Our tour guide Thomas was fabulous, the best tour guide I’ve ever had! He deserves a lot of praise. He knew his facts but kept everyone engaged the whole time. We had about an hour or so to eat lunch before Alcatraz and wow that was an awesome audio guided tour. I liked that we could do that at our own pace and take the ferry back as quickly or not as we pleases. Overall would recommend 10/10!

Our driver, Thomas, was great! We did a city tour in the morning and then did the Alcatraz Tour in the afternoon. Thomas was a great tour guide, friendly, courteous, great sense of humour, and an excellent driver!

I would have given 5 stars for this experience but the "city tour" portion of our day was lacking. The city tour driver was not a smooth narrator as he was not able to provide specific details and historical perspectives of what we were seeing on the tour. While the smaller sized vehicle made it easy to get on/off and was comfortable, the whole front of the mid-sized bus had a dark panel the riders cannot see through. Therefore, we could not see the whole view of things being described. Frequently, our driver just put on his radio instead of talking about the sites to us. The Alcatraz tour and ferry system was excellent and well executed. I was happy I was able to book it through Gray Line. We really enjoyed our day.
