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

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

interesting ride -some of the music could have been longer...

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.

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

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

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

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

It was well coordinated and I liked the use of audiovisuals. Learned things about the 60s that I hadn't known before!

Fun and casual. I wasn't fond of the incense smell (needed to open a few windows) though it certainly was reminiscent of the era. I also got a little carsick at the beginning. But a.. in all, we enjoyed the ride and the music. Gaia, the tour...continued

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!

This was a fun trip to take. Sadly there were only three of us on the bus so the experience was not as good as it could have been if more people had attended. I believe more people will attend as time goes on as yesterday was the start of the...continued

This was a super fun activity - especially for those of us who actually remember! Movies, flowers, pins, candy . . what more can you ask for in a MAGIC busride!

Brilliant idea that is well executed. Thanks to our bus hostess, we were treated to a kalidescopic view of one of San Francisco's wildest eras...the 1960s Sex, Drugs and Rock-N-Roll. Great fun and a worthy tribute to San Francisco's history and...continued

Great idea, poor execution. Would recommend taking one of the hop on, hop off buses instead.
