Feel like a true firefighter as you slip into authentic firefighter gear to keep warm, then travel around San Francisco in old-fashioned style.

Motor through the Presidio and then see Fort Point before crossing over the postcard-perfect Golden Gate Bridge for a fire truck tour like no other. Enjoy amazing photo ops of San Francisco Bay, the city skyline and the bridge’s twin spires—fog-wrapped or glistening in the sun—as you make your way to the bayside village of Sausalito.

This was one of the top experiences of our trip! The guides were extremely friendly and informative. They offered to take photos of the guests and they added to the experience with hospitality. This tour was amazing, taking us to various locations in the city that we did not know about. Being a firefighter family, this was an amazing experience!
Wonderful fun!

Awesome Way To Tour The Golden Gate & Beyond

They had me at “vintage convertible fire truck!” Seriously so much fun - a brilliant way to tour bits of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and Sausalito. Johnny Biceps drove and the tour guide was a super knowledgeable, sweet as sugar & so charming.” We loved wearing our Fire Coats (the temperature fluctuated significantly). It was truly a highlight of our trip to the Bay Area. Fun for all ages and you should absolutely make this a must when visiting San Francisco!

My Mum and I went on this trip yesterday and could not have asked for a better experience. The fire engine was a unique way to see the city, and we loved that Deborah included some history and facts about SF fire fighters. Thanks to Deborah and Johnny for an amazing intro to SF. It was amazing!
