*Best* San Fran Tour For a Newbie?

Hello! Everyone here has been fantastically helpful with my upcoming California trip.

One more question: my friend and I are thinking of taking a 1 1/2 - 3 hour San Fran tour. There are SO MANY of them...the trolley tour, the bus tour, the fire truck tour...does anyone have any recommendations on the best ones? We are just interested in seeing as much as we can!

Thank you!

Hi, My daughter and I were there last month. (Let me know if you want any info on shopping <smile>). I can't remember the name of our tour company, but if you don't have a car and the weather is nice, make sure to take a tour that goes to Twin Peaks. It is the highest point in the city and the views are tremendous. The trolley tours do not go there; you need a 3 hour bus tour, but they will skip Twin Peaks if visibility is not good.
Have fun.

Thanks! I am leaning toward the fire engine tour but having trouble accessing their web site. I'll try again tomorrow.

We did the fire engine tour a few years ago and it is definately worth doing. It is quirky, fun and an experience you won't forget in an hurry.You will be singing the 'big red shiny mac-fire engine' for years to come. Enjoy your trip

We enjoyed a trolly ride to Fishermans Wharf then walking that for hours. The Alcatraz tour is the only one I'd pay for. Dinner at Palouf a must.
