      Had an awesome time!

      Always on time. The room I had been given were awesome. One small thing I would have liked changed, was some free time given if you didn't like what you were going to see. The tour guide could have told us where the next meeting point wa...s and we could get our own way there. Read full review

    Dear Ada,

    The hotel Courtyard Marriott and Quality Inn Marina both locate in the Bay Area (Greater San Francisco). The hotels will be located about an hour drive away from downtown San Francisco.

    We usually get back to Los Angeles between 6:30 pm and 7:00 pm. Inclement weather, road conditions or traffic congestion may cause a 30-60 minute delay, however. If you want to end your tour ahead of time, please inform us by including a note in the reservation request section when placing your order online, but we will not be able to revise the tour price. Also you will have to arrange your own transportation and service fees after leaving.

    The current tour price for single travelers is $230.00 per person, with the service fees and mandatory tour fees payable during the tour.

    Thank you for your inquiry.
