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.

Don was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the city and it’s history and kept us chuckling as we went. And our driver, Aloha, navigated the streets like a champ! Thanks for an awesome tour! We highly recommend it! ~Doug and Sondi

I bought the 2 day delux package which included the night tour. Don was the tour guide and he made this the best tour of the entire package. Very much enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it

Before we even boarded the bus, Susan was engaging everyone waiting for the tour. Once we started, she was non-stop funny and the details she shared about San Francisco were extremely interesting. She can hold her own with any standup comic and she does it...More
