Description

Explore San Francisco with a birds eye view of the city by the bay. Cross the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Learn about the city from our entertaining live tour guides as they provide you with rich history and insider tips. Become a Local Expert on a Big Bus Tour.

Hilly streets lined with colourful Victorians, eclectic districts from the piers of Fisherman's Wharf to the sunny streets of the Mission, and picture-perfect landmarks from the Golden Gate to the Haight—San Francisco's a treasure trove of must-see sights. Get a lay of the land and take in the City by the Bay on a convenient double-decker bus, hopping off whenever you want to stretch your legs and get a closer look.

Snag a seat up top on the open-air top deck of a double-decker bus or in the comfortable interior. Take in views of the city as you cruise up and over the trolley tracks of Pacific Heights, feel the breeze off the San Francisco Bay as the tour drives long the waterfront from the Embarcadero to Fisherman's Wharf. Gaze up at the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge, look to your left to see the expanse of the Pacific Ocean and then to your right to see the breath-taking San Francisco Bay and city skyline.

You can choose to just sit back and admire the passing scenery, or hop on and off wherever you want to explore more in depth, whether that means scoping out the shops of Union Square or hunting down delicious Italian cuisine in beatnik-friendly North Beach.

We took two different buses during our day in San Francisco. Our first bus was with Peter and driver Curwin (?). Peter was an awesome tour guide with so many entertaining and interesting facts about the city. It is astonishing how great the bus drivers are at maneuvering this huge bus safely through traffic all over the city! Our second bus was also very good, with some different commentary about the city. It’s a great way to see all the highlights of the city in one easy trip and then you can visit whatever interests you. It also makes the city come alive by learning more about it. Peter was excellent at sharing history and fun facts about San Francisco. Thank you!

Could have been great but buses should be checked for its integrity before each day starts. One of the buses we took suddenly stopped in the middle of the freeway. Our time was wasted waiting for the next bus to come to pick us up. And we couldn't go to the next nearest stop since we were in the freeway heading to Golden Gate Bridge.
