Full description

See the highlights of San Francisco from the comfort of a double-decker bus on this tour. Pass through well-known neighborhoods such as Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach, and Haight-Ashbury. Take the iconic Golden Gate Bridge across the water for views of the city and Alcatraz Island. 

Start your trip from Fisherman’s Wharf. Enjoy the vibrant crowds and colorful atmosphere at Pier 39. During the right time of year, you can catch a glimpse of the sea lion colony by the waterfront.

On the way to the North Beach neighborhood, take a photo of Lombard Street. Watch drivers wind their way through the most crooked street in the world. Enjoy the Italian influences in the area. After World War II, it became a center for the Beatnik subculture. 

Check out the bright blue tower of the Ferry Building with the Bay Bridge behind it. Swing into the Financial District with its modern architecture. Keep an eye out for cable cars in traffic and shoppers on your way to Union Square. Snap photos of the City Hall in the Civic Center.

Climb the city’s hills and experience the charms of the famous Victorian houses. They add a pop of color to the ride. Look for signs of hippie culture and murals the closer you get to Haight-Ashbury, a hotspot of the Summer of Love.

Descend into Golden Gate Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world. Take a breath of the fresh sea breeze rolling in from the beach nearby. Drive by the Conservatory of Flowers and de Young Art Museum. The path through the park takes you right to the water.

Cross the 1.7-mile long span of the Golden Gate Bridge. Spot Alcatraz Island in the bay on the way to North Vista Point. Hop off for a selfie with the bridge and San Francisco as your backdrop. From there, take another trip over the water to return to Fisherman’s Terminal.
