I had a tourist multi day pass and usd it to go up and down market street and up to Embarcadero and the Fishermans wharf. Much faster than the cable cars, and easier to get as they come along frequently.

Wow. I loved catching the F line historic streetcars when in San Francisco. We caught them from 3rd Street along Market and rode to the end by Fishermans Wharf. They are cheap to ride ($2.50 per trip using the Muni app or clipper card) which...More

Market Street from the Ferry building to the Castro certainly goes through some neighborhood changes. Sit back and enjoy the ride on what transportation was like during a bygone era and the cars are originally from different parts of the USA.

Visited here with a friend and wasn't sure if I'd like this and I was surprised by the history/ the story and the fun. San Francisco collected so many great trolley cars from all over the WORLD!

Great to use around SF, didn't have to wait long, drivers were really helpful. Bought a 3 day Muni ticket was well worth it.

Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
