Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide at Fisherman's Wharf to begin your San Francisco fire engine tour. Board your shiny Mack fire truck, a vintage red engine with an open top for optimal viewing. Feel like a true firefighter as you slip into authentic firefighter gear to keep warm, then travel around San Francisco in old-fashioned style.

Motor through the Presidio and then see Fort Point before crossing over the postcard-perfect Golden Gate Bridge for a fire truck tour like no other. Enjoy amazing photo ops of San Francisco Bay, the city skyline and the bridge’s twin spires—fog-wrapped or glistening in the sun—as you make your way to the bayside village of Sausalito. 

Make a photo stop at Fort Baker before returning back over the bridge. Ride through boutique-strewn Union Street in the Cow Hollow neighborhood and return to Fisherman’s Wharf where your tour ends.

They had me at “vintage convertible fire truck!” Seriously so much fun - a brilliant way to tour bits of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and Sausalito. Johnny Biceps drove and the tour guide was a super knowledgeable, sweet as sugar & so charming.” We loved wearing our Fire Coats (the temperature fluctuated significantly). It was truly a highlight of our trip to the Bay Area. Fun for all ages and you should absolutely make this a must when visiting San Francisco!

My Mum and I went on this trip yesterday and could not have asked for a better experience. The fire engine was a unique way to see the city, and we loved that Deborah included some history and facts about SF fire fighters. Thanks to Deborah and Johnny for an amazing intro to SF. It was amazing!

LOVED this! Great way to see a bit of San Francisco on the way to the Bridge, we had a lovely clear day and got some great photos. We did this on a Sunday which was really busy due to Fleet Week but our driver was awesome with getting thru all the traffic. Highly recommend this tour to everyone if visiting San Francisco

So much fun! Loved that it was a small group. Truck ride is bumpy and windy, but still lots of fun! Best way to get over the bridge. Also stop at a great spot to take pictures and see a seal or two. Driver and guide were great!
