What to Expect
Jump aboard the bus at any of the 24 stops along the route, hopping off at any sites that pique your interest. You’ll see city highlights including Embarcadero Center, Japantown, Lombard Street, Union Square, the Golden Gate Bridge, Haight-Ashbury, Pier 39, Chinatown, and North Beach. Hear fascinating commentary about each spot along the way.

Your pass also includes two walking tours, option to buy 1 hour get 1 hour free bike rental (only available with the 48-hour pass), and an admission ticket to Alcatraz with round-trip ferry access from Pier 33. You can also take an audio tour of the prison before catching the ferry back to San Francisco.
