Avoid relying on expensive ride services with this affordable hop-on hop-off San Francisco bus tour. Jump off at more than 15 stops to explore sites and neighborhoods that interest you most. Your pass includes four walking tours, and you can upgrade to add a night tour, a Sausalito trolley ride or bike rental. You itinerary is up to you, so you’re never waiting on a tour group.
What to Expect
The bus tour route starts at Fisherman’s Wharf, but you can board at any of the stops. Just exchange your voucher for a ticket, and get ready to explore the City by the Bay.

Highlights include Pier 39, Union Square, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Golden Gate Bridge and Lombard Street. Plan your day’s itinerary based on your own interests. You won’t be stuck in one area—unless you want to.

There are four walking tours included with your pass. Explore Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach, Chinatown, or the Barbary Coast with a guide who knows the must-see highlights of each area. It’s possible to fit all tours into one day if you plan accordingly.

If you’ve upgraded, take a Sausalito tour, and enjoy a one-hour bike rental.

Your experience ends on the day your pass expires. If you have the time, two-day passes are also available.
