City Tour with Alcatraz
Apr 2021
Great day in San Francisco! We got picked up on time at our hotel and had a terrific city tour first. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and fun. We had plenty of time to take photos at multiple stops during the tour. Then we had a lovely lunch in the Fisherman’s Wharf, don’t forget to check out the sea lions! Alcatraz cruise was great. The audio tour of the island was easy to follow and engaging. If you want to see all the main highlights in SF in one day, this tour is for you! Highly recommend it!

It was a well -organized tour. We had our Alcatraz cruize in the morning;it's a self-guided tour. For the city bus tour we had a cool driver.We took many good photos, thanks to him. He gave us some recommendation for the next few days as well.

Small Group Tour San Francisco
Dec 2019 • Family
Firstly how is a small group tour 36 people?

Driver was 15minutes late at pick up point and this was dispite having confirmed the time on two occasions!

Constantine was our guide for the 4hr tour

I have taken many tours over the years and in many cities across the globe. I do know SF very well! (I was on this tour with my friends who hadn’t visited before)
The route planning was questionable with changes constantly being made! Timings were erratic for stop off photo opportunities.
The guide didn’t have a lot of knowledge of the city and would point out the most bizarre points of interest
“Oh there’s an Irish pub” “oh not it isn’t”
What happened to the local history of each district?
His knowledge and background on the parks were informative, and that’s about it!
My party all felt that the tour was a waste of time!
Would I pay to take this tour again? Absolutely not nor would I recommend it to any visitor.

San Francisco day in a bay tour with Alcatraz.
Dec 2019 • Couples
Apart from Alcatraz, this tour was a huge disappointment and a complete waste of our only full day in San Francisco. The tour guide drove us around the city, but was just talking the whole time- it was information overload. Not to mention the microphone he was talking/yelling/mumbling into gave me a headache. I could hardly understand what he was saying the majority of the time and most people on the bus fell asleep. I thought we would have stops along the way that would allow us to take photos, but after Alcatraz we only had one stop for a restroom break at a coffee shop “That might be closed”. I couldn’t believe it. The tour guide had just mentioned a hundred great coffee places and restaurants, but decided to stop at one that possibly might be closed?!? Needless to say it was. I overheard a few people say “can we just get an Uber home”. My husband and I ended up doing just that. I never write bad reviews, but I would hate for another person to waste limited time in San Francisco on this terrible tour. I would recommend going to Alcatraz and if you want to see the city pick another tour company. I hear Big Bus are good.

On this excursion it is a matter of being well organized. It was a great experience to visit Alcatraz; it was awesome . The city tour was good. We went to many places, but we didn't go to Downtown. I recommend it for the family.

Oct 2019
Picked up on time from very close to our hotel and head to Alcatraz. we then lined up and boarded the ferry and had a audio tour of Alcatraz. after this we were picked up again and saw many more attractions and got some interesting facts about San Fran. Really great tour with a knowledgeable guide.

Communication was awful but tour was great
Jun 2019 • Friends
The tour itself of SF after Alcatraz was great! It was just unfortunate that during our pick up in the morning (3 different pu times given) and then we wasted time with stops no one was interested in prior to arriving at the pier. Worst it was only when I asked our driver if we would be continuing with him after the Alcatraz tour onto the SF tour, we were told in passing that our afternoon tour time had changed from 1:40pm to 3:pm. We were scheduled to fly out later that night and were concerned about making our shuttle. I called the office and was told they would have to check with a manager since my tickets were non-refundable. I was then told they would call me back in ten minutes. I never got a call back but as we were being dropped off at Alcatraz the driver informed the group the tour would begin at 1:40pm. No one in our small group had been told of the change. Alcatraz was wonderful but that had nothing to do with the tour. Our afternoon tour of SF was wonderful our driver/tour guide Tyana was great and it made up for the morning distress. So the question really is we paid 129.00 per person times 3 equals $387.00 for this total day tour an Alcatraz tickets bought separately are only $40. so was it worth it - still not sure.

Loved It!
Took the tour yesterday.
The driver/guide arrived right on time at the designated pick up. The morning was all Alcatraz (must see) and after we lunched on our own we went to the designated pick up location for the afternoon driving tour through points of interest in San Fran. Tyana, our guide, was outstanding and took us to all the tourist spots as well as neighborhoods that really gave you an understanding of the personality of San Fran. She provided quirky and interesting stories and facts that ranged from music history, current and past politics, and cultural history that shaped what the city is today. She allowed time to get out of the van at photo op spots that were uncrowded with stunning views.
Could not say enough about this tour. Worth every cent! Thank You Tyana and Extranomical tours. Can’t wait to come back to San Fran!
