Mr. Toad's Tours
Mr. Toad specializes in small, personalized tours that offer a better overview of the bay area than the Full House intro. Instead of the modern vehicles frequently sighted touring urban landscapes, Toad tours take place in pre-1930s vehicles that run on propane, the power behind grills and floating cities. The nimble rides can easily navigate the hilly cityscape along the route. The Hop Around the City tour is a beautiful jaunt around town, highlighting cinematic and historical landmarks like Little Italy, the Embarcadero's piers, Mrs. Doubtfire's house, Chinatown, and the Golden Gate Bridge, to name a few. Tours depart from Fisherman's Wharf at the corner of Mason and Jefferson—see the sidebar for tour schedules. Call ahead to book your tour and arrive twenty minutes early to avoid missing the send-off, subsequently ruining everything forever.
