Comments about Smart Destinations Trolley Hop-On Hop-Off Tour - Grayline SF:

Tour guide was excellent. She pointed out that there are 5 different hop on hop off bus services. We noticed other services were leaving their passengers stranded. She named the neighborhoods, famous buildings and great views of GG bridge. Took pictures. She told us it would be 2 hours so we were prepared and it was so fun that it only seemed like one hour. You have to get your ticket at Pier 39 downstairs level across from the Aquarium by the Bay. We had a 3 day Go Pass. What that meant is that we could get tickets for 3 days 1 day at a time at the booth. Very cold, I would not reccommend for kids under 4 because of weather. No longer run by Grey line 4.3.2014. It is run by Sight Seeing Tours.

Introduction to San Francisco. Kids loved it. We all felt more oriented during the remainder of our week in San Francisco. The tour guide was fabulous, knowledgable, funny and told great little stories connected to the different destinations.

Solid overview of the city
By bahama mama Verified Reviewer from savannah ga on

Comments about Smart Destinations Trolley Hop-On Hop-Off Tour - Grayline SF:

The tour was entertaining and just the right length of time. We were able to get the lay of the land and took note along the route of where we wanted to go back and visit. The guide was informative and entertaining. Truthfully, trolleys are a shot in the dark since you never know what kind of tour guide or quality of vehicle you're going to get. We were very statisfied.

Bad Bad customer service
By Olivia Verified Reviewer from San Francisco,ca on
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Trolley Hop-On Hop-Off Tour - Grayline SF:

We asked for our options with the Go Card, they had two possibilities, each described on the booklet but with two different timings. Before I could tell them which options I liked, they scanned my card with the first option. When I told them that it would not work for us and I wanted the second offer they had, they told me that it was too late and that they could not scan the card a second time since it was the first option OR the second option. They did not feel sorry for me and I just was left with no options at all.

Smart Destinations Response: We're very sorry about your experience. We'll be talking to Gray Line to ensure this doesn't happen again.
