Overview
Even if you have just a half day to spare, you can see San Francisco’s top sights on this guided bus tour. Travel in comfort from the windmills of Golden Gate Park to the Victorian mansions of Pacific Heights to the panoramic views of Twin Peaks. Put the guidebook down and let a driver and guide do the navigating. Upgrade to include a sightseeing cruise on the San Francisco Bay.
What to Expect
Choose from a morning or afternoon to suit your schedule, and get picked up from Union Square or Fisherman's Wharf in a comfortable bus. Head west toward Ocean Beach for a scenic drive through Golden Gate Park, where you can visit the Japanese Tea Garden (own expense) or simply stroll among the park’s museums and greenery.

See the Victorian and Queen Anne mansions that define San Francisco architecture, and travel along the historic Barbary Coast while hearing tales from California’s gold rush days. Admire the historic Palace of Fine Arts, snap panoramic photos from the top of Twin Peaks, check out one of America's original Chinatowns, and gaze at Alcatraz Island from Fisherman's Wharf.

For a waterside perspective on the City by the Bay, upgrade to include a 1-hour narrated San Francisco Bay cruise that takes you up close to the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the Embarcadero waterfront.

Not really a tour

We were driven around the city in a bus with loud music playing. The driver gave no information on what we were seeing. We had designated stops for photo ops which was nice, but I learned nothing about the city. Very disappointing. Would not recommend.More

Tour Driver Dripping with Anti-LGBTQ Disdain

Gray Line must have heard other complaints about the driver we had, yet they allow him to continue to lead their tours. It was highly offensive. The tour itself was not all that informative either.More
