You’ll receive admission to the Aquarium of the Bay, Magowan’s Infinite Mirror Maze and the 7D Experience, and you can choose one of two cruises—the San Francisco Bay Cruise Adventure or the Escape from the Rock Cruise.

Aquarium of the Bay:
Aquarium of the Bay is a unique educational and entertainment facility dedicated to the rich and diverse aquatic life of San Francisco Bay and its surrounding waters. Walk through 300 feet (90 meters) of clear tunnels that put you within inches of marine animals indigenous to the bay. Don't miss the otters, a family favorite!

Choice of San Francisco Bay Cruise Adventure or Escape from the Rock Cruise:
You may choose one of two different cruises on the bay.
  • The San Francisco Bay Cruise Adventure takes you along the city's waterfront, gliding past sea lions, under the Golden Gate Bridge, by Sausalito, past Angel Island and around Alcatraz.
  • The 1.5-hour Escape from the Rock Cruise takes you under the Golden Gate Bridge and circles Alcatraz Island, allowing you to see every angle of this notorious prison up close. You'll hear chilling accounts of harrowing escape attempts by inmates, as well as descriptions of the brutality of life on the island.
San Francisco hop-on hop-off tour:
Get acquainted with the city and enjoy limitless flexibility with a hop-on hop-off pass good for 48 hours. Listen to live commentary on two separate tour loops through San Francisco neighborhoods such as Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, Nob Hill, Downtown, Union Square and Chinatown. You have unlimited hop-on or hop-off privileges at any of the 15+ stops, including the Golden Gate Bridge, so you are free to explore San Francisco at your leisure.

Magowan’s Infinite Mirror Maze:
A delightful challenge for all ages, Magowan's Infinite Mirror Maze perplexes visitors with infinite hallways, dead ends and endless circles as your own reflection misdirects your pursuit of the way out.

7D Experience:
The 7D Experience is sensory extravaganza combining the most advanced 3D film attraction in the world with cutting-edge technology to deliver the thrill of a roller coaster and the excitement of an interactive laser blaster, all without leaving your seat. With a state-of-the-art digital surround-sound system, this experience is entertaining and immersive.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

great deal for everything that was included, we used all of the passes and had we paid for each attraction separately I'm sure it would have been more expensive. Highly recommend! The city tour was amazing!

I would recommend this you discounted coupon booklet which is a good savings. The tour buses are great, I would recommend going on this. I used the same tour company in NYC (disorganized) this one ran much much smoother. Absolutely loved this voucher.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2014

This was our first time in SF and the pass included many of the things we wanted to do. It incouraged us to do some things we probably would have skipped, but they made the vacation more fun, like the mirrows and 7D. Good value and easy to use.

4 star rating: Recommended January 2014

The price of the tickets was a good value. The Pier 39 Aquarium is well done and is interesting, particularly for kids, and the bay cruse gives visitors a different dimension of SF. We didn't have time to use the hop-on-hop-off bus tickets, but I have used them in other cities and found them to be a good value also.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2012

Very good value on most of the pass, great city tour on motor tram, very good harbour cruise under the Golden Gate bridge and around Alcatraz. The Aquarium didn't have much to look at though.
