Emily S.

The city bus tour and Alcatraz Island experiences were top-notch! Our morning tour guide was incredibly experienced and knowledgeable. However, there was a slight hiccup in the coordination between Extranomical and the Guided City Tour team. When we arrived in the morning, the on-site coordinator didn't have our names for the afternoon tour, and we had to make a last-minute phone call to Extranomical to get the afternoon check-in details. Despite the minor bump, everything else was fantastic.

Olivia M.

The experience with Extranomical was worth every penny, and we highly recommend it to anyone visiting San Francisco. Our guide was not only knowledgeable but also enthusiastic, approachable, and thorough. She effortlessly handled detours and unexpected obstacles with grace. She even managed an interruption from a participant's mobile phone call like a pro. What stood out the most was her authenticity and genuine care for ensuring that her guests had a top-notch experience.

Benjamin H.

We had an absolute blast on the full-day tour of San Francisco and Alcatraz. Our bus driver, Jack, was the friendliest person ever, and Michelle, our tour guide, knew San Francisco like the back of her hand. They took us to so many incredible sights and different areas of the city. It was truly enjoyable and unforgettable.
