5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Purchased a 2 day card and on day one used card for the hop on/off bus to take us right round the city and then to go to places of particular interest. Day two went on wine tour to Sonoma/Napa which was great and arrived back just in time for a quick wander round Madame Tussaud's. If you book a wine tour separately it costs as much as the 2 day card, so great value. You're really getting all the other attractions for free!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

This was awesome We got the 3 day card and used it everyday and saved a ton of money with everything we did

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2012

This made the trip much easier and better. Definitely getting this again when I go back to San Francisco! So worth the money and highly recommend!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2010

It was so nice to have everything pre-paid. It made things feel less expensive and after adding up the total from our trip we saved bundles! I highly recommend this to anyone planning to go on vacation.

Great card!! Saved alot of money


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

The SF Go card was a good deal. We didn't take advantage of every offer, but we didn't really expect to. What we did use seemed to get us discounts that we couldn't have got otherwise, so on that basis I can highly recommend.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

Was disappointed that we needed to go down to the embarkadero physically to pick up the voucher and not sent to the hotel. we arrived early at 9am and had to go down a little earlier than we wanted to the wharf area. other than that, was very good value, took one cruise, Cal academy and all the smaller museums ripleys and wax museum at the wharf area. next day we did the hop on hop off bus tour which rounded out a good trip

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

Had a fantastic time. Would definitely book again.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

Purchased a 2 day card - needed more time to get the value from the card. The attractions we were able to visit or access were excellent.
