The Ca Academy of Sciences is amazing. There is so much to see and do. We spent hours there and still didn't even come close to seeing everything. My only complaint about buying my ticket through this site is that you cannot skip the line. You still have to go to customer service or the ticket booth and get tickets. The staff member told us they have told Viator that many times and they still haven't changed it on the website.
WOW. This pass made getting around so easy. We rode busses when we tired of walking and even got on a Cable Car. The lines for the Cable Cars could be daunting but we got on. The California Academy of Sciences was a hi light and was very enjoyable. The best was the Planetarium was great.

Incredibly interesting. The audio tour through the cell block is a must if you go there.
Visit to Alcatraz was interesting. Quite busy but guided audio kept people moving within the building. Hop On, Hop Off bus was interesting but the loop was pretty long to consider it transportation in the city. Fair warning about parking in the open lot near the local tour operator's office where you catch the bus....our vehicle was broken into and multiple electronics were stolen. Put a damper on our last day of vacation to say the least! We hear after the fact that this happens quite a bit...so don't you think the city should have more security patrolling the lot?
It was a very nice trip. Not quiet 5 stars, but I did enjoy it. Nice and helpful friendly staff, I as able to do almost everything I wanted too. I just missed riding the trolleys and seeing the sea lions.
The tours were fun
The tour was great. Only drawback was that we had to phone from England before we left to confirm. Even low we had paid in full. Also you have to go to Alcatraz on the first day plus pick tickets up from office 8.30 in the morning, which was a rush as we only arrived in America the night before.
The tour was good but the bus was delayed so we couldn and #39;t jump off and visit anything without having to ride a city bus back. When buying the ticket it would have been nice to know what sites were included in the downtown tour. I ended up having to upgrade.

Buses are supposed to come every 20 to 30 minutes. We waited a hour for most of the pick ups. We talked to other people who told us the last bus usually never appears in the evening. One evening we waited 90 minutes on a bus. We where just about to give up when it appeared.
I already provided details but it was poor and it had nothing to do with the tour. My bad experience pertained to purchasing my tickets.
The Academy of Sciences was wonderful and will worth seeing everything. I would highly recommend it to anyone of any age. However, I had called to add our granddaughter to our reservations and had payed for her ticket adult price when we got there our tickets were fine but they wouldn't honor our granddaughters ticket so I had to pay for her again 29
The science academy was good but shows were not that amazing. The aquarium was good. Overall a good place for 1 day visit
We loved the Academy of Sciences in San Francisco! Great facility with so many cool exhibits.
An excellent buy. So handy to be able to take public transportation MUNI and streetcars for 7 days without having to figure out fares, etc. It rained most of the time we were in SF but we spent the rainiest days touring the Exploratorium the Thursday night Adult tour, the California Academy of Sciences give yourself an entire day and the Aquarium of the Bay. When the sun finally did peek through, we took advantage of the Blue and Gold Fleet Bay cruise. We never got to ride the iconic cable cars as line ups were way too long. Next time .....
