    What to Expect
    This 2-day hop-on hop-off San Francisco bus pass gives you access to four bus routes for two days. Please note this pass is only valid for 48 hours after your first use. The routes usually run from 9am to 5pm. This pass allows you to plan your own time in the city, and provides transportation to and from the spots on your itinerary.

    While aboard the double-decker bus, listen to interesting information about the history and culture of popular places. Drive through many of the city’s main districts, including Embarcadero, Union Square, Chinatown, the Financial District, North Beach, the Marina District, and Haight-Ashbury.

    Some sights you can see along the way include Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, Lombard Street, Golden Gate Park, the Ferry Building, the Presidio, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Japanese Tea Garden, the de Young Musuem, the War Memorial Opera House, and San Francisco City Hall. If you decide not to get off the bus route at all, it’ll take you about an hour or a little more to drive around the entire bus route.

    Kirk, the driver and tour guide was fantastic. He was informative and funny. He slowed down at popular spots to take pictures. I really wanted to see Lombard Street and the Painted Sisters. To see Lombard street from the tour route, you would need binoculars. To see the

    Paid for 2 days, however due to the bus schedule change it meant we could only use 1 day. Was noted stopping at places we wanted to visit (China Town) and took long time to go round as no 2 way buses. Feel a little let down as we incurred extra expenses. Have hopped on and off

    I think we may have had the same man that has been mentioned by others. Absolutely awful. No meaningful information, just self opinionated rubbish on politics, Americas fabulous military history, and denigrating most other countries. We got off and walked, having sat downstairs

    This was my first hop on tour and it was a great way to see the city. The night tour was a great way to get some incredible photos! Guide was fun and made the tour. One trip (we did 2 days) without and it was just a bus ride. Would definitely recommend this.

    Nothing can compare to our Redwoods. These majestic monoliths soar up to ( over) 30 stories. Do not leave a trace.
