San Francisco Night Tour by Bus

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Head to Fisherman’s Wharf to start your evening sightseeing tour by hopping aboard the double-decker bus and meeting your guide. Then set off around San Francisco to take in major landmarks and neighborhoods.

    As you listen to narration from your guide, travel along the Embarcadero, past Pier 39, and through Chinatown. Catch views of Alcatraz and the Bay Bridge, and see crooked Lombard Street. Admire the skyscrapers of the Financial District, cruise through Nob Hill, and then head toward the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Your tour ends back at Fisherman’s Wharf. Whether it’s light or dark outside depends on the time of year. Please note that the tour route may change based on traffic conditions.

    Great way to see the highlights of San Francisco . Then you can go back and see more of the highlights that you liked best. Value for money . friendly bus driver. Easy to get on and off.

    Decent route, informative guide. There is an opportunity to disembark for photos at Treasure Island. It can get quite cold up top, so bundle up even in the spring and ideally bring a hat of some kind to cover your ears from wind.
