Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Enjoy the city's sights by night. Beginning at Fisherman's Wharf, our Night Tour of San Francisco takes you through the evening vibrance of the Embarcadero, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown and the Financial District before crossing the Bay Bridge for photos at Treasure Island. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so please aim to arrive 20-30 minutes before your preferred tour time. Please note that this is not a hop-on, hop-off tour.
  • Experience San Francisco landmarks illuminated at night
  • Gaze across the bay to San Francisco from Treasure Island 
  • Learn about the city’s history from a guide
What to Expect
Make your own way to the meeting point at Fisherman's Wharf area in the evening and board the double-decker bus for your tour. Hear live commentary from your guide about San Francisco’s landmarks and history as your driver winds through iconic neighborhoods of the city. You’ll pass through the Embarcadero and drive across the Bay Bridge to Treasure Island. Soak in panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay and stop at a viewpoint that offers a great view (weather permitting) of the downtown and waterfront. Your tour ends with return to Fisherman’s Wharf and an optional, complimentary shuttle back to Union Square. Tours run between 60-90 minutes depending on traffic.
