    Our bus commentator (not on every bus) was hilarious and informative. When we were on a bus without the live person, the recorded info was great to listen to as well. Doing the combo tour let us see alcatraz when tickets were sold out everywhere! Alcatraz was also a welcome surprise. So much cooler than anticipated. We listened to the audio and hopped back on the boat. Took about 1 hour. We were cramming our days so didn't have much more time to spend than that, but definitely worthwhile!

Alcatraz way cooler than expected, bus a great way to see the city!

An excellent day

This activity through Royal Hawaiian Tours was excellent. Clear instruction regarding pick up location were received by email the night before and on the day we were met as advised by Eddie, our guide for the next 5 hours. The tour of Pearl Bay centre was excellent - a must do when in Hawaii. Eddie then took as on a city tour which for us was a perfect way to see the sites in the limited time we had. All in all definitely recommend

All you need to get the San Francisco experience. Great that the big bus tour can run over three days ( three tours on that package and you do not have to do them at the same time as the hop on hop off bus. ( wish I’d known before as was in San Francisco only for 3 days and couldn’t do the Salsalito tour. Tour guides knowledgable professional and interactive. Very good

Very enjoyable. Some of the earphone jacks in the bus were a bit finicky and hi had to jiggle the plug to make them work.
