Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the San Francisco CityPass. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Short Version: Worth every penny, saves you plenty of money, especially if you are there a while.
The details: The one problem I will share was completely my fault which is this: Don't give yourself only three days for San Francisco! We didn't get to everything we wanted to including the MOMA which we had free admission to thanks to this awesome city pass. This pass gives you free transportation for a week! That alone could pay for itself if you are there for the full seven days. But on top of that, we were able to go to the Exploratorium (incredible hands on science museum), the California Academy of Sciences (another incredible science museum with a man made rainforest you can walk through and a planetarium all in one building), and a few other great attractions. Each attraction is around $25 or more so if you get to all of them you are once again getting your money's worth. I highly recommend this pass to anybody who is visiting San Fran for the first time and is planning on visiting some of these awesome attractions (if you are not, you can just get a metro pass for three days to get around the city).
It was easy to use, fast, and helpful!
Number one reason to use this city pass is; you can save your valuable time and energy during your vacation, because of you don't need to be in long, long line to purchase tickets, and then another line to enter. I was so lucky to have this city pass, so I can enjoy the tour with my 7 yrs old boy who didn't crank at all with long line and waiting. Tahnk you viator!!!
I would highly recommend it and use it again if given the opportunity.It paid for itself by the second day we were there. Never had to worry about carrying cash/change every time we boarded any type of transportation.
The CityPass saved me a fortune in just cable car rides alone! Easy to use with some excellent attractions.
It's a great and practical way to see San Francisco. Definitely a no no to drive or hire a car, especially with parking so expensive. We availed of the unlimited muni and tram rides. It was good! Highly recommended.
Great Value! Highly recommend if you plan on using the cable cars and buses to get around. Along with included entry into some fantastic museums you will get a very good deal by using this.
Good value, the trolley paid for itself, we used it all up.
The City Pass practically paid for itself with the MUNI access pass. The attractions offered covered a nice range of activities. I would recommend the City Pass to visitors to San Francisco.
This pass was well worth the money for the transport alone. We stayed on Van Ness Avenue so relied on transport alot to get us about. The cable cars are $6 for one trip and we were taking anything between 4-6 a day. Also we went to the Baseball park so by having the pass it allowed us to negotiate all of the transport easily without worrying about buying tickets etc.
We also visited the aquarium (which was average) and took the day cruise (which was great). Plus we used the discount voucher on bike hire. Unfortuately we ran out of time to go to the Califonia Science Academy.
I would say that we definately saved money using the pass and would recommend them if the activities are ones you are interested.
Pass is excellent for first time visitor to SF. Covers all the travel and highlights we could fit into a 5 day holiday.
The idea of this City Pass is fantastic for both Overseas and U.S. Visitors. It made life and getting around San Francisco so easy using the MUNI Transport System and the vouchers for various attractions were accepted with a smile and a VERY BIG THANKS.
The most obvious choice when travelling to San Franciso. Considering the prices of the cable car has gone up to $6 each ride this pays for itself. The Aquarium is awesome and for $5 you can up upgrade to the speed boat instead of the the boat tour. Worth every penny!
You just can't miss. We definitely used the transit pass enough to pay for the entire booklet (at $6 a cable car ride), meaning the other things were all icing. And what icing! Spent 5 hours at the Academy of Sciences, loved the Aquarium and Exploratorium, enjoyed the nearly obligatory cruise of the Bay, and made sure to take advantage of $20 off the incredible Go Car tour experience. Seriously hundreds of dollars of value for the $69 we spent per. Absolutely essential starting point for a SF trip!
This is the only way to get around San Francisco great value with all the extra freebies connected to city pass would use this again
Even tho we didn't take advantage of all of the vouchers, the city pass was well worth the price and we will buy one whenever we go to our favorite city!
Great value for money and a good way to see the sights of San Franciso'
We loved the advantages of the City PASS, like don't need to stand in line, etc.
Would recommend this City Pass to anyone. Paid for itself on the first day. A great way to get around the City.
Great deal - in one day the use of the pass to get around SF paid for itself. You can't go wrong with this one.
Excellent value for money especially if you are travelling with children. My 13 year old son loved all the attractions offered. Plus the savings were enormous if you take into account that every cable car ride costs 6 dollars per person!!
Getting on and off cable cars, and into the museums just by showing your city pass was just fun.
We had a great time with the city pass. I recommend this option to anyone going to SanFrancisco
