About Us


City Sightseeing was established in San Francisco in 1997, operating tours of San Francisco, followed by Muir Woods, Wine Country and many more.

In 2005 we introduced the first open-top double-decker bus to San Francisco under the City-Sightseeing brand. At the present time, we are the only company in San Francisco to operate Hop On - Hop Off tours and are the largest open-top sightseeing company west of the Mississippi.

City-Sightseeing operates in over 80 cities throughout the world. San Francisco and San Diego are the first two in the USA, with many to be added over the coming years.

We strive to offer the most fun and informative tours in San Francisco. Our tours offer the maximum flexibility, to allow you to customize your sightseeing experience, so you can spend your valuable time how you choose. We offer a very personalized service and our focus is on you, the customer. From the time of booking until your tour is complete, we aim to give you the best possible experience. Our reservation system is very simple to use, our staff are friendly and informative and are there to help you. Our driver / guides are professional and will ensure an enjoyable trip.

My boyfriend and I were in San Francisco a few weeks ago. We took your wine country tour. It was fabulous. Our tour guide Paul was great.
He provided us with knowledge of the wine country and San Francisco that we wouldn't have gotten any where else. He also made the tour very fun and interactive.
Thanks again to Paul for showing a great time in the wine country. If I am ever in that area again and need a tour, I will definitely come back to Travel SF

Dear Christian
Just a short note to say thank you for organizing my four recent trips.
They were so well organized and I had a great time and met some really lovely people - it was a very important part of my holiday and I'm very grateful to you.
By the way, the coach driver on my Carmel trip couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and he spoke to my cousin and they arranged for a convenient place to drop me off - it couldn't have worked any better.
Thank you so much, once again.
Best wishes

Hello. My wife, myself and another couple we were traveling with took your wine country tour last Sunday. I wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide, Paul, was one of the best tour guides we have ever had. He was not only extremely nice, but very knowledgeable and informative. Thanks so much for the great time.
Sincerely, Marty

just a short note to say thank you for our wonderful excursions in San Francisco. The trips organised by your company were entertaining, informative & very enjoyable. The staff at the Jefferson St ticket office were friendly and helpful as were all the guides and drivers. Thank you
once again for making it a wonderful experience in a city of friendly and entertaining people, we could learn a lot from the positive American way.
We have decided that when we return it will be for a longer trip and the sooner the better.

Just a quick note to Thank-You (and especially Fabian, our driver and guide) for the great time we had on 4 of the tours we took advantage of while we were in San Francisco last week (end of September).
We experienced the Bay Cruise, The Wine Country Tour, The Double-Decker + Alcatraz and the Muir Woods Tour. We had a great time. I can't imagine how it could have been better!! Fabian was exceptionally knowledgable, courteous, and helpful!!
Thanks again.
We'll be mentioning you to friends who might be heading your way!

Dear Sir / Madam,
I am writing to thank you for your excellent service provided to our party of six on a recent trip to San Francisco.
The city tour and the trip to Alcatraz was great. But even better that that was the quick, friendly and professional way that you dealt with our initial problem.
You will be glad to hear that 'our problem' (or 'kidnapping' as we referred to it for the rest of our holiday) was not with your company but with another. Namely the Gray Line, who claimed to be your company when they arrived at our hotel to pick up clients to bring them to the tour start point. Both times we asked they affirmed that they were your company.
Instead of our next stop being the city tour we found ourselves at the Gray line terminal in a queue to buy one of their tours. Luckily we had a number to call on our print out confirming our transaction with your company, which we insisted a Gray Line employee called for us to explain the situation.
Your quick staff told us to get in a taxi and head to their office, with the assurance that the tour would wait on us.
When we arrived at your office at Fisherman's Wharf your staff were great. They quickly got us organised and without being asked after their heard our story we were re embursed for our taxi fare.
We were glad to know we were in such good hands before we even set out for our tour which proved to be very full, organised and informative. If you only had one day in San Francisco this would be the tour to do. Like us if you had several days it was a great overview to get you going.
I would highly recommend your tour and your company to anyone who asked me. As I indeed have been since my return. Please feel free to use our story to warn other customers of the 'kidnap potential', and/or as a recommendation for your company.
Thank you very much,
yours faithfully,
Dr. Claire McGonagle
