Everyone loves the ride on an open top Double Decker bus, which you can enjoy with the 1-Day Hop-On Hop-Off Tour! Choose to either stay on the bus for the 2.5 hour City Tour or hop on and off at any of the stops with many family friendly activities along the way, such as Pier 39 with its famous sea lions, the Exploratorium, Chinatown, Walt Disney Family Museum, Aquarium of the Bay and the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park.

Once you hop off the bus, you can visit Madame Tussauds Wax Attraction where you can get closer to fame than ever before. Cozy up to George Clooney on the sofa, jam on stage with Jimi Hendrix or Beyoncé, and go behind the camera with Steven Spielberg. Hang out with Mark Zuckerberg, take a ride with E.T. or meet some of the greatest U.S. sport icons of all times.

And to make this day even more fun, experience the thrill of a rollercoaster and the excitement of a state-of-the-art laser blasting game all at once at the 7-D Experience. The 20 seat theater, massive movie screen and the newest 3D technology will keep your senses reeling as you RIDE, BLAST and COMPETE your way into other dimensions!

Very polite, friendly, and knowledgeable guide. A couple was late, so he waited patiently for them. Counted everyone on the bus to make sure no body is left behind. Good guidance for eating and site seeing

Does what it says on the tin

This is a simple way of seeing San Francisco, which personally I didn't think met the hype. Very informative and reasonable value for money. However, it wasn't clear we needed to get the online voucher printed and then scanned and reprinted for tickets to be...More

Do not take this tour!

I was horribly disappointed by the entire experience. The first two buses we caught (one at Union Sq at 9AM) did not have guides, as advertised on the website. Half of the headphone jacks didn’t work, so we ended up sharing headphones. The buses were...More
