What people are saying about Nob Hill

This was a very informative tour. You did have to do a lot of walking if you got off at one of the stops. The actual landmarks were spread out from the bus stop. The headphones worked very well with the audio and that was much better than a person using a microphone.

fantastic service and our driver was the spirit of San Francisco, dancing while we were boarding the helicopter. very professional and I felt comfortable the entire trip. FANTASTIC experience!!!

Perfekte Organisation, entspannter , professioneller Flug, der auch als Rundflug über SF ausreicht mit dem Event Flug unter Golden Gate. Vergisst man nicht.
