We went on this trip and it delivers what it says - a trip on an old fire truck crossing the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge and back.

Advised to wrap up warm and luckily we took note and did however we did forget to put sunscreen / moisturiser on and ended up with faces looking as red as the truck from wind burn - lol oh well you live and learn.

Good fun and lots of information about San Francisco which we instantly forgot :)

We were recommended this tour by friends as are so glad they told us about it. What a fantastic way to see the sights and travel across the Golden Gate Bridge. Johnny and Deborah were very welcoming and made sure we had a great time. Deborah was very interesting and informative we learnt far more about the city and surrounding areas than we thought we would. As there were only two of us it was a very personal tour which was lovely. If you only have time to do one thing in San Francisco this should be the one.

We did the tour 12 years ago with the couple who started the tours across the bridge and loved it. The wife was so entertaining and had us all singing and laughing most of the trip. We loved it so much we wanted to do it with our younger grandson. When I went online to book it I looked for the couple knowing it had been 12 years and wanted to make sure it was the same couple. When I saw their photo with the tour I booked it. Very disappointed in our trip Friday July 29 when we had two men leading the tour. The announcer was a good singer but very little interaction with riders. They need to change photo. The couple that started it made the tour and to still show their photo seems to be false advertising.

This was such a great tour, the driver and guide were lovely and we got to see many places that the hop on / off tour didn't reach such as the Presido, underneath the bridge and around the headland. The commentary was really interesting and it was obvious that they guides loved San Francisco.

At one point they announced that they were running a little late to start their next trip. I assumed this meant that they would try to curtail the tour but they didn't and arrived back with just 10 minutes to spare before starting the next one.

This is really worth doing

Fantastic way to see San Francisco. Stunning views, funny and informative narration by our excellent driver John. Passersby wave with delight as the fine old Mack fire truck makes its majestic way across the city. Our kids loved it.

Our family of 4 (with a 5 yo fire engine enthusiast and a 23 mo toddler who was initially a little scared) had a wonderful time on the tour. Exciting ride on the shiny fire engine for the entire family. Driver Johnny and tour guide Deborah did a brilliant job! Highly recommended.

Oh my goodness. This was hands down the most fun tour we have ever been on. We had never heard or seen anything about this, but walked by the Cannery, found a brochure and decided to try it. It was definitely the highlight of our recent trip. We were laughing, singing and doing the 'Queen's wave' all the way! John and Vicki absolutely made this tour so delightful. We will remember it and recommend these tours to all. What a great way to see the Golden Gate Bridge and other historic sites. We love, love, LOVED it!

This tour is super fun for families, couples, singles and kids. Highly recommend it!

Make sure to hang on to your hat going over the windy bridge!

Very nice time. The guide was very entertaining and personable. They will take pictures of your group for you. We had a lot of fun. The one thing to note is, if you just put the address 650 Beach St into Google Maps, it sends you about 4 blocks away (I have submitted a correction request). Search for San Francisco Fire Engine Tour and it will show you the correct location. My family (1 college kid and 1 middle schooler) fully enjoyed the trip. We also had an unexpected bonus where one of the tourists on the truck had to render first aid to a bicyclist who was hit by a car (not our truck) at Ft Point.
