"ABSOLUTELY AMAZING EXPERIENCE ON THE DAY IN THE BAY VIA ALCATRAZ TOUR!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Highly recommend this tour! Very professional, well organised, and a great introduction to the key sights of San Francisco! Special mention to the guide of our afternoon city tour, Doug. Doug easily made this day trip the best tourist experience we’ve had over the past month and a half while in America! Our tour guide Doug was incredibly knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and so passionate! The tour was incredibly informative and my partner and I were stunned with the depth of his cultural and historical knowledge and found his own advice, tips, and tricks to be very helpful! Would highly suggest taking this tour at the start of your San Fran stay as it familiarises you with the entire area and covers so much! Had such an amazing day and the whole trip was very worthwhile! Once again, massive thank you to Doug for making our San Francisco stay so memorable!

"Yosemite 2 Day Unguided Tour from San Francisco"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 28, 2018 NEW
Well organised and executed tour to Yosemite from San Francisco. We picked Extranomical over other tour options and weren't disappointed, dont be fooled by their outdated website. Narration during the journey was insightful and humourous (Jim in particular). Tour stops included key locations but also allowed plenty of time to explore from the village. Good value and well recommended.

Honest mistake done by hotel concierge. He booked us with 2 different tour companies. Extranomical Tours did not provide services.Refund sought. But was turned down. Felt ripped off.

"Unforgettable giant trees and yosomite valley"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 23, 2018
Took Yosemite trip on 11 nov. Driver GINO helpful and know legible. In the onward journey showed audio video info on tv regarding Yosemite. On the way back when everyone was very tired played soothing music. As a bonus saw golden gate bridge at night by a small detour on ANGEL ISLAND on way back. Gino gave proper stop for buying food on onward as well as return journey. Left san Fransisco at 6:30 and returned at 9:30. Spent 2 hrs in giant sequa Grove and 4 hrs in YOSOMITE valley. Unfortunately all falls except bridal was dry. Scope for improvement: provide map of walkway in sequa groove. Their is a slight detour and tourist tend to get confused. The walk in 1 mile down hill with 400feet loss of height. Thus on the way back it is a steep climb. Again on Yosemite valley as 1st timers we were lost as to what to do. WHILE THERE IS A FREE SHUTTLE WHICH RUNS ROUND AND ROUND A MAP SHOULD HAVE BEEN PROVIDED( AS DONE BY SOME COMPANIES) showing point of interest with corresponding g bus stops. MORE OVER AT SOME PLACES THE ON WARD STOP 3 WAS JUST ACROSS THE ROAD TO THE RETURN STOP 10. SO IF YOU KNOW THEN JUST CROSSING THE ROAD SAVES 20 MINS OF WAITING TIME
