Brandon was excellent from before the tour even began. He emailed everyone saying where to pick up tickets for the Alcatraz tour and recommended places to eat before the tour began at 2 PM. The city tour felt like the quickest 90 minutes ever. He made it fun and very educational! My boyfriend and I were only in San Francisco for two days and this tour was the perfect way to see as much as we could with the time that we had. I would highly recommend it - you won't regret it!
SF EXCURSION TOUR!! Hands down best tour. Gets places big busses can’t get into. Recommend!! Tour guide ( brendan) funny and makes it enjoyable. Goes into detail about the city of San Francisco and tells own personal stories. Very well like city tour. RECOMMEND
Brendan was very responsible and texted us complete instructions on our tour of Alcatraz. After our tour he was outside to whisk us away on a very informative and stunning ride through San Francisco. We stopped at sights and Brendan took our pictures and supplied us with much appreciated cold drinks. After he was very kind and drove us back to Sausalito. The whole experience and commentary was the highlight of our trip!
Liked and enjoyed everything about the tour, just a few pointers that you guys need to do is more information as to what tour really entails, the calls for reminders were great but should call more in advance but all and all very nice thanks
Between the Alcatraz boat ride and visiting with the audio too the most epic drive tour from SF eExcursions I ever experience. Please you go to San Francisco book this tour and use SF excursions ,you won't be sorry.
I have done many Viator trips. This by far was the Best trip. Brendan was the key to the trips huge success. The morning of my trip He texted the instructions. Where to go when to be there and most important an accountable person who cared that my family's trip went smooth from start to finish. I've done the colorful bus tour this was a behind the San Francisco City tour. Brendon was informative, had a plethora of information that I had never heard before. I saw the City from inside out. The Heart of what makes the City so wonderful. Alcatraz was amazing for the 2nd time. A MUST see when in the SF area! I would highly recommend this trip. Thank You!
