The Pier 39 pass was really great! Had alot of fun and saved some mony at the same time! There is something to do for everbody there.
the trolley ride is excellent there is a great atmosphere here at pier 39
A cheap way to experience the main activities in San Francisco.
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.
Everything was great except the Hop On Hop Off Tour. When I went to the Blue and Yellow shack to collect my tickets, they didn't tell me that I had to redeem those tickets (HOHO Tour) for paper tickets. When we tried to use the coupon we found we had to get paper tickets. No one was sure where to get them. I asked at B and G and they sent me one place. There was no booth there. Then I saw another B and G booth. Those people sent me somewhere else. Those people sent me somewhere else.. Finally someone told me it was the Gray Line who would redeem the coupons for tickets. By then it was too late for the tour and I left San Francisco the next day. So I didn't get to see the city itself, or some of the districts that I truly wanted to see.
I only took advantage of the Bay Cruise portion, which in itself was worth the money. But I recommend for anyone getting the pass to make sure you pick it up at the start of your trip, otherwise you may run out of time later.
The weather could have been better, but it is a beautiful city. Having the Pier 39 pass made it very easy to see the main attractions of the area.
Great idea, got to see a few things without having to line up and wait for tickets.
boat trip was good - a must if in san fran aqarium was small (and had no octupuss) would not bother again much better ones else were trollybus was ok but was same as open top bus so you only need to one or the other
Pier 39, whilst its one of those places you pretty much have to go and say yep went there when I was in San Francisco - this pass probably isnt worth the purchase.
I live in Dallas, our Aquariums, in my opinion, are much better than this one. The trolley tour was a waste of time. If I'd known better, I'd have chosen a different trolley tour. We just went around the banks and chinatown...no painted ladies, no haight-ashbury. It was pretty disappointing for someone who's never been to San Francisco.
