Didn’t get what I was expecting

I was only in San Francisco for 2 days and was looking forward to a great bus tour with a guide telling me all about the city. I paid $49 each for my daughter and myself because we were expecting an actual tour.
The first bus we got on was so packed, we had to stand and couldn’t see a thing out the windows. We got out at the first stop just to get off. We skipped the next bus because it was just as full, and got on a nearly empty one that came up behind it. There was no tour guide, and the driver did not tell us that we needed ear buds to hear the recorded tour. Thank goodness that after we went over the Golden Gate Bridge and stopped, a guide got off another bus and gave us a choice to join him. FINALLY we got what we paid for and he was fabulous! Unfortunately, we had to get off after a few stops so we could get a different bus to the stop we needed to get to. Luckily we had a tour guide on that bus, too, but we missed so much of the tour beforehand. A crowded bus with no guide to explain the city was not what we paid for.


Better options out there

I booked a day pass for myself and my husband while in France, last week, that included a river cruise. Because the bus driver did not print out my ticket for the boat we were unable to board, even though I had proof that we had paid for it. What’s more when I contacted the company they informed me that I was ineligible for a refund (I asked for a refund for my boat tickets alone, not for the bus) because I should have known to ask the driver to print them out even though that is their job. I assumed that the eTicket I had been using all day long was would have sufficed, boy was I wrong! What’s more the app included no directions as to how to find the boat we ended up having to ask for instructions from random strangers because the bus driver was completely unhelpful. With so many options for hop-on and off buses I highly recommend you go with anyone else other than this company. Worst customer service.



I was very excited to spent about $70 a ticket for 5 people in my group to experience this big bus tour. This is about $350 that I spent to enjoy a nice tour of Washington DC. These were the deluxe tickets. I was unable to experience an enjoyable tour with my family because it rained. The buses were filthy and leaky. I literally sat in a seat where I smelled urine. The buses were overcrowded with wet and very uncomfortable people where some people had to stand because of perhaps overbooking. For the money that I paid, I did not get a chance to enjoy the experience of a good tour of the city with my family. When I called to get some type of compensation for the money that I spent on it, they did not offer compensation that I could use on my trip. The only things that my family were able to enjoy were 2 museums. I was very disappointed in how these tours were handled this weekend.
