What You Can Expect

The Summer of Love Magic Bus Experience

Roll Through San Francisco on This Groovy Trip

Take a psychedelic trip through San Francisco on the multicolored Magic Bus! Board the decked-out party bus in central San Francisco, where you’ll be greeted by peace-loving, costumed guides. 

Roll through the crowded, colorful streets of Chinatown, where Buddhism and other ideas of Eastern philosophy influenced the city’s intellectuals in the 1960s. Nearby, see the favorite haunts of Beat Generation poets like Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, including the famed City Lights bookstore and Vesuvio café.

Continue on to the Haight-Ashbury district, the heart of the city’s counterculture movement in the 1960s that remains a favorite hippie hangout. Travel back to the Summer of Love with the help of 3D glasses and time-warping window projection screens while your guide shares stories about this crucial moment in American history.

Cruise through the lovely meadows and gardens of Golden Gate Park, home to 'Hippie Hill' and the site of many celebrations and demonstrations during the 1960s. Stop at the Victorian-era Conservatory of Flowers, near where more than 20,000 people gathered for the Human Be-In event in 1967 and where the first Earth Day was held in 1970.

At the end of the groovy and informative 2-hour tour, you’ll be returned to the original departure point with peace, love and history in your heart.
