We took part in the Night Tour at the beginning of March, so it was a bit fresh. Of course, you can prepare for this very well. The tour itself was great and very entertaining, along the route we could see all of San Francisco's major sights, including a great view of the nightly skyline from Treasure Island. Our tour guide (unfortunately I can't remember the name) made the tour very interesting and talked to us in between with anecdotes.

Overall great experience. My family and I really enjoyed the tour around San Francisco and learned a lot about the history of the city. Bring a jacket, it can be a bit breezy at some moments. Stopped on Treasure Island for some photo opportunities. They provide free headphones for the audio. Would highly recommend this tour!

Labor Day weekend wasn't too bad. The bus leaves on time. very friendly funny bus driver. I love the tour It told us about the history and see things you didn't think you would see. I love the experience would definitely do it again.

Awesome !!
