terrific visit to a fascinating time in SF. Very well done. Great politics, not just the wonderful hippie time. AV extreme!

there was very little about SF, you could just sit in a room and watch a movie about 60s.

I enjoyed the multimedia presentation. brough back many memories. This would be a good tour for tourists.Different fro the conventional tours. Would have like a daytime tour as the city is chilly in the evening.

If you are here from out of town and want to learn more about the history of San Francisco's counter culture, this is a really fun way to do so.

It was ok, not what I had expected. The constant up and down of the screen was making me lose focus and I began to get bored.

My guest and I enjoyed the experience but I think would have enjoyed it
more if: 1) It was shorter, 2) there was air movement on the bus - it was a beautiful warm day and it was too warm on the bus.
3) More recorded stories as told by the...continued

The bus drives through several notable areas on the way to and back from the Haight-Ashbury area. At different times during the tour, screens will cover the windows and a video will show what was going on in the world during the sixties. Lots of...continued

The timing of the multimedia pieces and the...continued

This is definitely a different kind of bus tour. While driving around town you'll be listening to snippets of great 60s music and watching of a little 60s history on the movie screens that descend over the bus windows for a great majority of the...continued

This was definitely a "trip"! Fun, clever, and a great history lesson. this is not a city sightseeing tour, but you do get to see sights pertinent to to the hippies and beats.

This was great fun!! It really was like going back in time and reliving some fond memories. The videos, the sing alongs, the 3-D glasses, and especially the hostess - very, very cool! I'd do it again. Is there a magic bus for the 70's also?

We were on the Magic Bus Tuesday July 30th. We had a great time! We learned a lot about the 60's as we traveled around San Francisco making our way to Haight-Ashbury. Our tour guide was groovy :) Full of lots of enthusiasm, lots of facts, and...continued

What a great adventure! Appreciate the education and magic. Mind opening, even for those with preconceived open minds. A great positive environment to help shake the doldrums of daily negativity. Immerse yourself.
