The bus was a few minutes late - and there was no greeter or sign at the stop - so it was a little disconcerting. The 3-D programs and wallpaper were really cool. 'Hope you like incense! Being a local, I was checking this out as a potential...continued

I took my two 20-something sons on the bus and they enjoyed it. I wasn't as impressed, however, as the film skipped around alot and didn't stick to a real timeframe of the 60's, so it was discombulated. There was a lot of down time when the...continued

The wrong intersection is given as the meeting point. It is only a block off so I was able to find it, but it started things off a bit stressful. It was unique and creative. Glad I did this, but not sure I would go out of my way to recommend it...continued

We really loved this experience. My husband and I grew up here and were especially moved by the music, the film footage, the perspective on these amazing, turbulent years. Several times we felt close to tears. The "theater" part was surprisingly...continued

This bus experience is designed to recreate SF of the 60's/70's. I has a hostess dressed up like a hippy. It's painted with graffitti. It has a bubble machine and inside walls painted in 3D. We were ready to enjoy the experience, having lived...continued

Really fun and different, a little too different for family members who are not used to multimedia.
The only thing that was not good was the freezing temperature of the bus. Come on, turn the heat on, the day we rode it was 53 degrees and after...continued

The bus was a little late, and there was no one there to meet us, so we weren't sure we were in the right place. Other than that, I thought it was a very clever and fun event. Great for out-of-town visitors too!

A very unique experience - and great to have the opportunity to relive the 60s through a filter including history, music, culture, trends, and the thinking at the time. Worth doing!

The video and narration were well done. The music was great. It is a bit more than your average tour bus, but it is not a multimedia performance. A little incense and candy, but no acting, preforming.

As a local who lives in Nob Hill and gets around quite a bit by bike and foot, I found this mostly boring. The fun part was meeting other enthusiastic locals who dressed up. Unfortunately this was not capitalized. I had been by all the places on...continued

It was a very interesting and informative tour. If folks are expecting to see a lot of SF, they will be disappointed. For much of the tour, the bus windows were covered with screens showing video of the history of the hippie movement. That was...continued

the hostess was nice and there was a nice tie in (and discount seats) to Hair! musical revival which we then saw that night

Very interesting...Good review of history of the time....the tour guide was terrific. Did feel like time travel...and for others who didn't live through the time, good to learn about 'Peace' and 'Love'...and backlash as well. Definitely recommend.

Fantastic tour of SF in 60s. Bus totally converted to a big comfy "hippie" home, the guide was full of energy & played the role well. Everyone loved it. You MUST do it! And I live in bay area not a tourist!

We had a wonderful time. It was good memories for me and an education for my wife from India and our 7 year old granddaughter. The guides were nice and informative, an enjoyable experience.

It was a wondrous nostalgic groovy trip back to the '60's. The whole era was well presented historically. Made very enjoyable through the voices, music and graphic scenes of the time.

The Magic Bus time capsule ride would have been more...continued

This was alot of fun. The tour guide was in charactter the whole time and it brought back lots of fond and crazy memeories. It takes some time to get used to the screen being so close (like sitting in the front row at the movies) but once getting...continued
