Discover the best sights of San Francisco city with a half day guided tour - or make the most of your stay in the beautiful bay city and choose to do the San Francisco city and Muir Woods and Sausalito full day combination tour. Starting with a meet up at any of the two meeting points, or a pick up from your hotel in San Francisco, the city tour is four hours long. Hop aboard the comfortable tour bus and enjoy a fully narrated tour that will show you San Francisco's most popular landmarks in only half a day! Get to see the Golden Gate Bridge, the famous Fisherman's Wharf, Twin Peaks, and so much more! You'll even have some time to get off the bus for some photo opportunities. During the tour, get a chance to learn about the city's origins and culture, including San Francisco's early settlers from the Native Americans to Spanish missionaries. If you choose to continue on with the combination tour, you'll be taken to the meet up location of the second tour. You'll then travel across the Golden Gate Bridge and all the way to the rugged coastal mountains of Marin County.

What people are saying about City Tours in San Francisco
Easy to redeem and the sights around San Francisco are amazing. Chose the Escape from the Rock, Exploratorium, and SFMOMA. The boat for the cruise was nice but the audio could barely be heard. Exploratorium made science really interactive and it's good for kids, teens, and yound adults. There was so much to see at SFMOMA as well. Can't wait to go back to SF!
It’s easy and convenient to redeem. You can save a lot pf money. The kids enjoyed it so much...We took advantage of the Hop on Hop Off with a bonus day, California Academy of Sciences and Madame Tussauds and the Dungeon. We were able to see and experience the must visits places and attractions of San Francisco in just two days...
Purchasing this was a breeze. Obtained e-tickets after payment immediately. Just need to show the QR codes in the e-tickets to gain entry into selected attractions. Visited the California Academy of Science, Exploratorium and took the Big Bus San Francisco Tour. Saved a lot as compared to buying separate tickets. Highly recommended!
Very easy to redeem. They just scanned your QR code and off we went. We chose Fisherman Wharf walking tour, hop on hop off bus and escape of the rock cruise. For the hop on hop off bus, suggest you started at the first stop. The queue is so long and the chance you get seats along the way is not high as many people do not get off the bus until after they crossed the Golden Gate Bridge.
Extremely worth it! As a frequent visitor to SF, I am well aware of the individual cost of many of the attractions listed on the pass - if you're able to combine 3 items that are more value for money (i.e. exploratorium, some of the more expensive museums, the go-kart experience -see pic for reference!) you're basically getting a super good deal.
Good way to save money if you know what activities you're interested in and you can just book on the day. Many GoCity activities don't let you book in advance. We saved money on activities we went on with pass. I wouldn't pay full price otherwise, as some activities not worth the full price cost. We chose 3 activities although depending on number of days you're in SF you may choose more.
