    This was my Wife's must do and it did not disappoint. The self guided tour was our option as the audio can be stopped at any point for you to spend longer in areas that interest you most. Also preferred to hear from actual Inmates and Guards which gave the experience a very intimate feel to it. Book in advance to avoid disappointment.

    We were looking for something to do with a young teen and 16-year-old in the city and found out about Dear San Francisco on TripAdvisor. We are so glad we followed the advice of reviewers. Everyone had such a great time and our seats on the stage were totally worth the additional price. Across-the-board, everyone said it was their favorite thing that they did in San Francisco. I will be telling all of my friends about this show!

    I would love to give 5 stars but the seat just stay at the same position with only shaking. I would recommend to make a moving seat like a floating seat as that will definitely give the best experience. So far, I am happy with the ride.

    Slides are on a nice quiet street. Great attraction for kids. The slides are fast and kids were sliding on piece of cardboard. Friendly neighbours on the street.

    Our guide, James-Katherine was great. Helpful, (but not too much) and seemed to truly be invested in our having a good time!

    The clues are not obvious and definitely require investment of thought but the pressure as the time ticks down can make you not very thoughtful or a so servant as you want to be. There were 6 in our group and that was a lot for a small space, but very fun and would do it again for sure.

    First off, this venue is in the Palace of Fine Arts, which is an incredible site and tourist destination SF. It's just gorgeous. Palace Games is in the back, a little bit hard to find, but incredible location.

    We booked the Edison Room and private game room for my daughter's birthday party. The whole experience was outstanding. The escape room itself was super interesting and challenging. While the kids were in the escape room, the parents were in the game room watching them work via CCTV. It was super entertaining and fun for us to watch them work out the clues and work together. It was an awesome bonding experience for them, and super fun. A few of my daughter's friends told me that this was the best escape room that they've done.

    The staff was truly exceptional. They were so accommodating, easy to work with and nice. AND the game room! Fantastic room: nice decorations, a sink, microwave and ice machine, plenty of table space and seating. It was very comfortable.

    The party was a smash success. We will be back to try their other rooms, and a few other parents/ families also want to come back. Thank you Palace Games for an awesome, memorable experience!

    We did the King Arthur escape room and it was amazing! Our game master Nana was very helpful, and she enthusiasticly guided us through the solutions we had the most trouble with after our game was done. It's nice to beat an escape room, but it's so much more fun when someone takes the extra time to explain things. We found the puzzle to be challenging in all the right ways and managed to finish successfully. This was our third and best escape room. Can't wait to return.

    The promo material for this tour sounded good but only touches the surface of how much of San Fran you can see. We were on an 830 a.m. departure so we avoided any traffic issues which means you see more.
    Tara had great banter, good information on city history (current and past), and a good musical soundtrack. Nice to get some reviews on hidden food gems as we travel past or shops not to miss.
    This is an excellent tour to get the vibe of the city and see some of the more remote locations while the compact city highlights are easily accessed through public transport, including the cable car.
    Great vans, a slice of history and definitely turns heads, especially on Lombard st!

    Absolutely brilliant! Red was amazing and we saw whales, porpoises, seal and a seagull (which was my son's favorite...)!

    The driver had a blast driving and I loved the view, the air and the stops wherever we pleased. The staff was friendly and accessible.

    Very professionally run. Friendly, timely, good equipment. We felt safe and we had fun. Kids were kept happy. We were the only ones on board, but I'm sure a larger group would also be well cared for

    I have just got back from our day trip to Yosemite National Park. It is a long day, but worth the effort. Our tour guide Jud was fantastic, knowledgeable, approachable and invested in our day. Put it o your list of things to do when visiting San Francisco.
