Description

Hilly streets lined with colorful Victorians, eclectic neighborhoods from the piers of Fisherman's Wharf to the sunny streets of the Mission, and picture-perfect landmarks from the Golden Gate to the Haight—San Francisco's a treasure trove of must-see sights. Get a lay of the land and take in the City by the Bay on a convenient double-decker bus, hopping off whenever you want to stretch your legs and get a closer look.

Snag a seat in the comfortable interior or up on the open-air top deck of a double-decker bus. Take in views of the city as you cruise up and over the trolley tracks of Pacific Heights, feel the breeze off the water by the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero, and pass beneath the international orange span of the Golden Gate Bridge to reach an incredible viewpoint looking back at the city skyline.

You can choose to just sit back and admire the passing scenery, or hop on and off wherever you want to explore more in depth, whether that means scoping out the shops of Union Square or hunting down delicious Italian cuisine in beatnik-friendly North Beach. If you want to stretch you legs, you can join one of 4 engaging walking tours of Chinatown, North Beach, Barbary Coast, and Fisherman's Wharf.

Upgrade your ticket to include a bus ride through artsy Sausalito—the charming town just across the bay—or a night tour, which lets you admire the glittering lights of the city after dark.

Route stops include:

  • Fisherman's Wharf
  • Washington Square / North Beach
  • Ferry Building
  • Union Square South
  • Alamo Square
  • Golden Gate Bridge
  • Palace of Fine Arts
  • Marina / Cow Hollow

The first 3/4 of the trip were fine. Excellent driver and good tour guide. We had to rake a different bus back to Union Sq from Jefferson & Mason. NO tour guide. NONE! Ruined the whole trip by that one failure. What is the point of a tour bus without a guide. May have taken the SF Muni. A whole lo cheaper.
