Everything worked out well for us, only the stop points were very bad or not marked at all. We got out at the viewpoint Golden Gate B. @, walked back over the bridge and, with a lot of searching, found the Palace of Fine Arts. Also just because a bus was coming.

Good tour and great way to see the city. Only negative was that it wasn't explained to us that only every few buses had a live tour guide. We sat through 3-4 stops just waiting to hear about everything we were driving by and ended up missing that part of the audio tour.

I highly recommend this tour! I love that you can pick it up anywhere, and it really takes you to all the sites - even across the bridge. It's the BEST thing if you only have a short time in San Fran and want to see it all with the ability to get off and walk around. Our tour guide was part historian and part comedian. He had us laughing the whole time, and provided far more details than the recording you listen to with headphones. That being said, we briefly listened to the recording which was informative as well. Loved it!
