What You Can Expect

City Sightseeing San Francisco Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Explore both sides of the Golden Gate Bridge with this unlimited 2-Day Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour

When you’re short on time with a lot of ground to cover, sightseeing San Francisco is easy by double-decker bus. This hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing tour covers sights, museums, eateries, neighborhoods and more. Use your flexible 24- or 48-hour bus ticket to enjoy panoramic views of San Francisco Bay and explore at your own pace.

Select a 24-hour pass along with your choice of three 90-minute routes: Downtown, Golden Gate & Sausalito, or Golden Gate Park. Or, if you’d like unlimited travel on all three routes, choose an all-inclusive 48-hour pass, which also includes a Night Tour of downtown San Francisco, a free 1-hour bike rental, a VIP pass for attraction discounts and more.

Tours depart from Fisherman's Wharf or Union Square, but you can join at any stop along the route. Experience Chinatown, Pier 39 and the Ferry Building on the Downtown Route; explore Ghirardelli Square and sample seafood across the bridge on the Golden Gate & Sausalito Route. See the Cliff House and Ocean Beach or visit museums on the Golden Gate Park Route. 

The continuous loop on the Night Tour is an ideal way to see the shimmering lights of San Francisco in the evening, with vistas from the top of Nob Hill, Chinatown, North Beach and the Embarcadero.

Our guide, Rodney, was awesome!! He made the bad weather disappear and brought history to life with his spot -on timing and footnotes.
Rode a second day and got another tour with same guide. Yay Rodney! Thanks for making a couple of cold, rainy days incredible.
My son's 12th birthday was one he will likely never forget. Thanks for all the pointers too!

Very good local guides, with plenty of information. Frequency of buses was an issue once you got off. Night tour was interesting.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

It was fun, great experience. We got to visit the attractions that I was really interested in. The bus runs about 45min to 1hr for pick-up. If you're lucky, you get to see some interesting people on the streets. The tour guides were entertaining and informative. I learned a lot about different parts of San Francisco.

We enjoyed the tours we took very much! The guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining as well! We happened to be in San Francisco during the 4th of July weekend with a very large crowd of others with the same idea!
Our buses were full and very happy to be where we were on top of the bus! With the best view!
Thank you for an awesome experience!

Enjoyed the guides very much-Jennifer and Ricoh the driver were a great team. Humor and knowledge nicely blended. We used the hop on hop off as our mode of transport all over from Union Square where we stayed-after taking the BART from the airport. The only negative was that the last tour left at you had to be careful to be on the last bus to get back before the buses were done. The night tour also did not leave till 6pm from the Wharf....kind of a distance at night. Overall-so well worth it! My hubby had never been to SF so we wanted to see it all....and we did :
