Comments: We loved the extended San Francisco city tour. The tour guide gave us just enough information for us to digest. The bay cruise is also very nice, but passengers can only stay on the cruise and see the famous Alcatraz island from the cruise. We bough lots of souvenirs at Fisherman's Wharf.

The tour is good, get to visit lots of beautiful places and experience them. The co-ordination between the travellers and guides was handled well except for few things listed below. Would have given a 5 star rating if not for the tour guide problem and the not so great city tours: 1) Tour guides are mostly Chinese, and at times we had to specifically ask for english translation of what was said. 2)SFO city tour - Not worth 25$ we paid, the guide dint explain much and the tour was over far too quickly. Either the city doesnt have much (which i dont think so) or the guide dint know the places. 3) LAs Vegas City tour - again paid 25$ to check four main attractions, the fountain show, volcano show, Lighting show and the grand casinos. Well most of these turned out to be pretty close to the hotel we were staying and we had a better time on the second day at las vegas when we saw it at leisure. So better check out your hotel location, if its close to the casinos having these shows and then dont take this city tour.
