It was ok but too cold not to be warned
Leslie_O, Oct 2022
San Francisco at night is wonderful, but there was only pre recorded history of the sites. Also it was cold and we were not told that Bay Bridge would be part so we could dress accordingly.
Very disappointing
Gwenda_P, Feb 2020
Disappointing. We turned up at the site to redeem our ticket but the office was closed. We tried calling the number but no-one answered. We went to the departure point and there was no bus. We tried calling the next day for a refund and again no-one answered.
Response from Host, Feb 2020
We are so sorry to hear about your disappointment during your recent visit. Our office stays open until the last Night Tour departs so we would be happy to look into this and see how we can help resolve the issue. If you could please email us with more details that would be wonderful.

Missed the bus, ticket provided two departure points we saw after departure time. 😟. Have asked for a refund and hoping to rebook as we wanted to do tour but awaiting a response!
Response from Host, Feb 2020

Disappointing experience
Erin_G, Jul 2019
Guide only spoke to the upper deck making it impossible for us in the bus downstairs to follow his commentary. Interior lights downstairs were too bright to take photos. Was more about fun facts than visiting city landmarks. Ticketing process unclear. Had to collect from office, but they didn’t answer the phone! We made it to the office right on close of business to find music blaring, so he couldn’t hear the phone.
The Night Tour by Bus was a great...
Vickie H, Sep 2017
The Night Tour by Bus was a great experience. The tour guide was very informative about the sights of San Francisco. All of the staff was kind and answered any question we had before the tour.
