Best of San Francisco City Tour

Experience the best of the city by the Bay and all of the incredible Northern California sights in San Francisco. Tour the Golden Gate Bridge, Twin Peaks, Golden Gate Park, Fisherman's Wharf, the palace of fine Arts and many other unique sites in San Francisco on this half day tour.

Start your San Francisco city tour by walking through the city from the Bay to the Ocean and stopping for pictures at important landmarks. Visit well-known attractions and take in the stunning scenery, such as the Golden Gate Bridge, which was formerly one of the highest and longest suspension bridges in the world. You'll also visit Twin Peaks, two nearly identical hills in the middle of the city, so don't forget your camera. View the city from a different angle and take in some amazing scenery while taking in the 360-degree panoramic picture of this lovely city. Upgrade your tour to include a Bay Cruise to get a complete land and sea view of San Francisco!

As we journey through Golden Gate Park we'll point out seasonal flower displays, look for bison grazing, and ride past windmills with a beautiful view of the Pacific. Continue through the once-infamous Barbary Coast, where you'll learn about San Francisco's early settlements-from Native Americans to Spanish missionaries-and the gold rush's frantic days. As we take you through the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, take in the iconic Victorian homes of San Francisco.

This half-day guided tour comes to an end at San Francisco's beautiful waterfront (Fisherman's Wharf), where you can take in the stunning views of Alcatraz Island and San Francisco Bay.

San Francisco city tour
November 09, 2016
This was a very good overview of San Francisco, hitting all the high points if only from a distance (few actual stops for pictures or further exploration). The bus picked up at my airport hotel and delivered to the downtown area where we were distributed to several other buses for different tours (all done through Gray Line). After the tour we were again dropped off at the Gray Line station with some three hours before the return bus to my hotel. However the Gray Line station is quite close to the bay area with a lots of attractions, restaurants, etc. So got a lot of walking in after a the bus tour.

Great General Informational Tour
October 09, 2014
There is a huge amount to see and the time alotted is too short to do it justice. For a first time visitor, this was perhaps the best tour for us as it gave us a general view of what the city has to offer. The guide was outstanding - knew his stuff. Our greatest disappointment with our stop in San Francisco was that there was not time to do both this tour and to go out to Alcatraz.
