It is a very good idea to go for a tuk tuk, we had known this transport system in Thailand, these tuk tuks are very colorful, too bad it is not electric.

"San Francisco city tour during cruise port stop"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 10, 2019
On October 4,2019 we visited SF for our 2nd time during a cruise port stop. We had booked a tuk tuk tour with another company but got an email about a 2 weeks before our scheduled stop that they were going to have to cancel due to equipment repairs. They suggested another company and even offered to check on availability with the new company. I called Lucky's to set something up if available. We met Bailey, our tuk tuk driver, at Pier 39 at 11:30 and were immediately whisked away (after quick introduction of everyone) on ONE OF THE BEST TOURS we have ever taken. IT was a beautiful fall day and we got so much closer to the action compared to our double decker bus tour in 2010 Bailey did a good job showing us the sights on our 2 hour tour. We would highly recommend a tuk tuk tour and thank you Lucky's for having a spot open that day. Our youngest, adult daughter had never been to SF and with the tuk tuk tour, she saw alot of the area and attractions.
