Looking for a fun way to see San Francisco’s top attractions – take a Hop-on-Hop-Off Bus Tour. It’s a great way to see the city’s sights, especially if you have a limited amount of time and want to see as much as possible. One of the first things we do when we travel to a new city is to take a narrated double-decker bus tour – you can hop on and off at your leisure or just stay on board and then go back to the places that you want to spend more time visiting. All buses are air-conditioned and offer free onboard wi-fi.

This is a wonderful time of year to visit the City by the Bay. Choose a 1 or 2-day City Loop Pass.
