James is a really friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable guy. The Golden Gate tour was solid, included a really informative video; I’d do it again. Thanks!


We didn’t get instructions of the tour We had to call because we thought meeting time was at 8:30am and it was actually at 12:30


The most memorable part of the trip was learning about San Francisco and Alcatraz. There’s so much rich history in that city that it makes me want to go back for more!


Driver James is the best! He's attentive, punctual and explains in great detail. Everything went smoothly 😁


Really enjoyed the entire experience. Seeing the bridge up close and learning the history behind its construction. Our driver, James, was great. Very entertaining and informative about the history of the bridge. The Alcatraz tour was also amazing. The view of the bay was stunning. The audio tour was really good. There is significant hiking involved and it’s also cold on the island so dress properly and wear comfortable shoes.


What an amazing tour! First we tackled the brilliant bridge and that was such a sight. We learnt so much about the building of the bridge. Then off we went to Alcatraz now this was fantastic , the best part of the tour. The audio was excellent and we were amazed with it all. Sometimes you always think what the tour guide will be like and I have to give it to James he wasn’t annoying , spoke when necessary and didn’t talk crap lol. He was fantastic. This tour was worth it.


Great tour, had an hour to explore around the golden gate bridge! The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the bridge.


The directions were unorganized being that they tell you the day before you go on your cruise. Our timing, for our two cruises were conflicted and we missed one of them and I was told I cannot get a refund. I would never use again nor recommend.


Great communication, detailed instructions, very knowledgeable of area and history. Very personable. Definitely use headset at Alcatraz makes tour more organized and interesting. I would use these guys for any tour they do!!!


Tour was excellent, James , our tour guy was very explanatory and nice !!Alcatraz was very interesting
