A hop-on hop-off bus pass bundled with an admission ticket to Alcatraz offers one of the best values for San Francisco sightseeing. With pickup and drop-off locations at the city’s most popular attractions, including Union Square and the Golden Gate Bridge, this bus loop makes it super easy to get around. Plus, an Alcatraz admission ticket gives you access to the famous prison site, which is infamously difficult to book at the last minute.
  • Hop-on hop-off tour lets you easily visit 20 San Francisco attractions 
  • Get an Alcatraz admission ticket without booking months ahead 
  • Walking tour of Chinatown provides insight into historic San Francisco
  • Sausalito Trolley tour as an additional bonus
  • Deals on bike rentals and entertainment save you money
What to Expect
Begin your tour at any of the 20 bus stops around San Francisco. A double-decker bus lets you choose from covered seats at street level or sitting on the open-air upper deck. Hop on or off the bus at any stop, including top attractions such as Union Square and the Palace of Fine Arts, or ride the entire loop for an informative sightseeing tour. This experience includes a walking tour of Chinatown and the chance to take a Sausalito trolley tour to explore the quaint seaside town. A ferry ride and admission ticket to Alcatraz is also included. Check in at the supplier office the day before your tour to get your Alcatraz admission ticket. Additional bike rental and entertainment deals are also included.
