It's hard to imagine a city that is packed with so many diverse activities. From the Golden Gate Bridge all the way to Sausalito, there is a wide variety of sights, sounds, history, and a uniqueness that makes this city quite special. Ride a cable car, visit Chinatown, experience the rolling hills, and see the colorful residences on streets that are at unbelievable angles.

Laying over in the city before or after a cruise?...this is a great way to see San Francisco! Upon boarding, you will receive a map and guide from either your sightseeing excursion driver or hostess. The map includes all the stops, sites you can see at them. Your driver or hostess, while not a guide, can answer many general questions you might have. You may book this excursion up to 3 months prior to your excursion date.

Most of San Francisco was destroyed in a devastating earthquake back in 1906, but it was quickly rebuilt and became a favored destination for immigrants from all over the world. This has led to an overwhelming selection of cuisines, shops, museums, and history. Maybe visit the fort at the Golden Gate that was established in 1776, or take a look at Alcatraz, one of the most notorious prisons in the world. You can visit the lovely town of Sausalito where much of the population lives on houseboats built in ways beyond imagination. There's a seemingly unending selection of activities. The fresh fish that can be found on Fisherman's Wharf, along with the street performers alone makes you feel as if you've entered another world.

With all this at your disposal, it's good to know that City Sightseeing has the best way for you to pick and choose your activities. We give you 2 different options to choose from a 24-hour pass valid on just the Official City and Sausalito Routes or a 48-hour pass valid on all loops (Official City, Sausalito, Parks and Beach, and the Night Routes). You decide which San Francisco Sightseeing Excursion suits your needs best! Maybe ride for a full loop and make a decision along the way. Since the buses are double-decker, you get a tremendous view and they run a continuous route so waiting to hop back on to your next stop is minimal.

So enjoy the city that was the birthplace of the Summer of Love and celebrate the diversity of the locals. San Francisco is just one of those cities that should be on everyone's must-see list, enjoy!

 HI ShoreExcursioneer, I booked you guys when I was in Roatan three weeks ago on May 14, to Tabayana Beach. As I was there a few years ago, I returned to the beach for a beautiful time. Your driver was on time, very personable and knowledgeable of the areas. In the future, I will try and book you guys wherever possible if available. Thanks for all your assistance.
