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.
If you’re a foodie and like to eat (and who doesn’t!) – and enjoy culture, walking and shopping in one of the world’s most famous food & walking cities, consider taking a Food-Tasting & Cultural Walking Tour during your next visit to New York. It’s one of our favorite things to do when visiting Manhattan – it’s also popular with the locals! What better way to explore NYC’s diverse areas, learn about its history, culture and architecture (tour guides are friendly and extremely knowledgeable), taste local specialties (come with an appetite; we guarantee you won’t leave hungry)… and walk it all off! It’s also a great way to meet new people who share your passion for food and fun!
