Lots of walking and lines at some places super long. A lot of homeless people asking for money are all over on the sidewalks. Very busy part of town....need to see it once to appreciate the atmosphere.

On our first trip to San Francisco we walked around fisherman'swharf. Very crowded with other tourists, and really didn't see anything too special. We enjoyed Pier 39 much more.

There is nothing spectacular about Fisherman's Wharf except it's long opening hours and convenient location. This is a great place to buy souvenirs, set off on tours, get food and have a wander to its piers but I wouldn't spend much time here knowing how...More

The tourist heart of the City but wonderful. A must visit when in San Fran. Visit the ferry building for fresh oysters and nice wines.

Not much here really! Overcrowded, full of tourist tat shops, walk up to pier 39 for a better experience but be sure to pop into Boudins Bakery on the way if only to smell the sourdough baking!

Very touristic place, overpriced mediocre food. We enjoyed the sea lions in the back and that's all we can say. Crooked street on walking distance, 25 minutes. Be aware that it quite an uphill walk!

I believe its Pier 39 near the boats for Alcatraz. There's some rides and shops and if you walk behind the stores along the water, you will catch the seals basking on some wood floats.

I think the city pass is a combination of public transit (bus) and cable car. Might be worth a couple days, but most things are walking, biking distance
