We did a city tour plus alcatraz. Our driver/guide, Patrick was very welcoming . He was knowledgeable and informative. In particular, he had a running dialogue with a lovely young lady on the coach which kept everyone amused. Thanks, Patrick.

"Great way to visit Wine Country by yourself. "

My day started with a pick up at my hotel by Silvio. Traffic was bad and it was a little late but Silvio welcomed me with a nice smile and a good sense of humour. He maneuvered the bus to each hotel stop with patience and understanding as one passenger had some mobility issues. He herded us all through the “office process”of getting boarding passes , very efficiently. Back on the bus in record time and off to the countryside. Silvio’s gentle voice educated us with his vast knowledge of wine making. I learned lots, loved the views and felt very safe in our chariot. We visited three wineries that day; Madonna Estates, Sutter and Gloria Ferrer. The best was the last, the lady who greeted us was very fun and knowledgeable. She transferred information on her world of sparkling wines in a fun way with facts that will be remembered. This was a very thorough tour and I felt I was very fortunate to have been exposed to such an interesting winery. I would recommend Tower Tours and especially Silvio! He is a Gentleman Extraordinaire!!

My 8 year old son and I booked the Muir Woods and Sausalito tour. We had also booked the ferry back to Fisherman’s Wharf. I have nothing but good things to sat about the trip and would like to give praise to the excellent driver/guide Igor. He had the perfect mix of intertainment and information. Thanks Igor!

"SFO City tour and Alcatraz"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed April 20, 2018
Everything went seamlessly for our tour. The tour guide for our city tour was excellent - funny and knowledgable about the city. The only thing I would say was that I felt we could have spent more time at some of the spots, for example would have been nice to walk around China town or Nob hill for a bit. Alcatraz is during the second half of the day and the tour company drops you off at the pier. You then have to exchange your ticket confirmation for actual tickets and hop onto the ferry to Alcatraz. After Alcatraz, there is an option to be dropped back to your hotel but you need to walk to the tour office at Fisherman Wharf and the bus is only till 5:30 pm. We chose to stay back and enjoy Pier 39. All in all, a great day. Thank you Tower Tours.

Had a wonderful day touring the wine country with Patrick as our guide. Loved the tour everything was timed perfect. Nice amount of time at all three wineries. Loved lunch in Sonoma, had a delicious sandwich at the Cheese Factory. Plenty to do, but at a relaxed pace. Patrick is knowledgeable and is willing to talk about the area, striking a nice balance between talking and quiet time. Highly recommend this trip for a single traveler or a group. Thanks!
