The guides of City by the Bay Tours lead guests on jaunts around San Francisco, while recounting tales of local history, culture, and culinary delights. During a 3.5-hour tour, air-conditioned minibuses carry up to 25 day-trippers on morning and afternoon excursions past San Francisco's notable landmarks and noteworthy neighborhoods. Routes wind past George Lucas's studios and Golden Gate Park, as knowledgeable guides give overviews of San Francisco's history, pausing for a detour that winds through Haight-Ashbury, a famed intersection known for its kinship with hippie culture and Wall Street. Trekkers observe the spot where Otis Redding penned "(Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay" and suffer scrunchy remorse after breezing past the street from Full House's opening credits. Guides launch urban expeditions seven days a week, with tours running twice per day—from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Pickup begins 30 minutes prior to each outing.
