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

It was full of gassy elderly women.

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.

I recommend to all -- lots of fun! Really took me back to the 60's. The "trip" was excellently organized - our guide was the best -- saw so much of San Francisco -- never a dull moment -- it's a must do!

I was there in 1967 and threw some zingers at the 'hippie girl' hostess.
She smiled because she knew 3 of them were coming up in the presentation. This is a tour unlike any that you've ever had on a bus.

Very interesting insight to 1967 Summer of love. (which I lived through)The screen rolls over the windows and because it's so close to seating it's a bit out of focus. Nice selection of music. Well thought out bus route & neighborhood info....continued

We had a great time during this tour. Its unique. Our puppy was welcome too! Only thing, the bus was late. There may have been a good reason for this but I was not made aware.

Magic Bus first of all needs to tell people that the pickup is where all the other buses meet their passengers. That was an unnecessary sorce of confusion. They also need to watch the clock and not be late again. The bus was kinda fun BUT would...continued

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

Video show and driving by historic locations was clever and for any "old hippie" this has to be sentimental, especially the theme of "what happened to the 60s dream of world peace and loving one world family" ? The pleasant nostalgia and the...continued

A spirited, whimsical journey into the Haight-Ashbury Summer of Love era with insights about Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendricks among others. Host Artemis is contagiously energetic and well-informed. Had a wonderful time.

Loads of fun - very informative. You see so much of San Francisco. Host and bus drive excellent - bus driver must time his drive to the movie - he did excellent. Nice stop in Golden Gate Park to stretch legs. Would definitely recommend to...continued

The tour is on a school bus that has been re-outfitted with seats running length-wise down both sides looking out at the windows. Window shades move up and down so you see alternating views of the SF streets and then movies on the screens. There...continued
