5 HOUR PREMIUM CITY TOUR

San Francisco’s most comprehensive tour

Uses Separate Tour Guide from Driver. We Don’t Just Drive You Around Like Other Tours.

5 Hour Tour Itinerary

— But less than 1 hour in the shuttle! We Stop at all of these locations below:


  • STARTS AT: The Ferry Building

    The Ferry Building is the start of our 5 Hour comprehensive tour. Here you will meet up with your tour guide and the rest of the group. Please arrive 20 minutes prior to tour departure time. View map

  • Golden Gate Bridge (Drive-over and Stop!)

    We will drive over the Golden Gate Bridge on this San Francisco tour, stopping for pictures and allowing you to walk around the vista points of the city’s most treasured landmark. We will also provide you amazing detailed historical narrative about the construction process of the bridge.

  • Chinatown (Guided Walk)

    You will walk down the famous Grant Avenue exploring many authentic grocery shops and historic sites. Your Tour Guide will stop at various places to point out interesting facts along the way.

  • Palace of Fine Arts (Go Inside)

    By far the most tranquil and serene part of our tour. You will be taken to the center of the dome where our Tour Guides will give you a specific historical narrative about the images and statues that make up the design of the palace.

  • Grace Cathedral (Go Inside)

    Modeled after the great Gothic cathedrals in Europe and is a site rarely seen in America. We will go inside to view the inside of the church.

  • Alamo Square Park (Famous Victorian Homes)

    The park is an incredibly popular place because it is home of those famous Victorian Homes known as Postcard Row. Your Tour Guide will tell you about the history of Alamo Square Park.

  • Lombard Street (Guided Downhill Walk)

    We are the only city tour that lets you walk down Lombard Street – ‘the most crooked street in the world’. You will be able to take pictures from the bottom of the street while the cars come driving down .

  • Cable Car Barn Museum

    We are the only Tour Company that visits this amazing stop. The Cable Car Barn Museum is an actual working/functional facility that currently controls all of the functionality of today’s cable cars.

  • Ferry/Bay Cruise (25 Minutes)

    This 25-minute relaxing Ferry Cruise sets sail in the afternoon so you can relax and enjoy the views of San Francisco Bay as the suns begins to go down. See the Golden Gate Bridge and avoid the traffic coming home.

  • Sausalito – via Ferry Cruise (One Hour for Exploring)

    On the Ferry Cruise you will see Alcatraz, Angel Island, Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge from inside the bay. The Ferry Cruise we take is provided by Golden Gate Ferry and offers both indoor seating or an outdoor coastal experience.

  • ENDS AT: The Ferry Building

    Now is a perfect time to consider checking out the shops inside the ferry building after your tour. Consider booking a dinner reservation at the famous Slanted Door restaurant far in advance.
