Full description

This live narrated 60-90 minute tour of San Francisco includes the most vibrant neighborhoods of the city, such as the Financial District, Chinatown, Nob Hill, and Embarcadero. Departing from Fisherman's Wharf, the tour covers all the major attractions of San Francisco during the evening hours, with spectacular views from the top of an original open top double decker Bus. Exact highlights may vary according to the season, weather conditions, and San Francisco's famous traffic, Chinatown, and Union Square, San Francisco’s shopping Mecca. You will also go to Treasure island, across the Bay Bridge, to get spectacular views of the skyline of San Francisco. On your return, you will see the ferry building, Alcatraz Pier, Pier 39, and more on your way up Embarcadero. Depending on the time of the year, it may not be entirely dark on this tour, but you will either see the city glittering at night, or in the lovely light of dusk.

Overall great experience. My family and I really enjoyed the tour around San Francisco and learned a lot about the history of the city. Bring a jacket, it can be a bit breezy at some moments. Stopped on Treasure Island for some photo opportunities. They provide free headphones for the audio. Would highly recommend this tour!

We took part in the Night Tour at the beginning of March, so it was a bit fresh. Of course, you can prepare for this very well. The tour itself was great and very entertaining, along the route we could see all of San Francisco's major sights, including a great view of the nightly skyline from Treasure Island. Our tour guide (unfortunately I can't remember the name) made the tour very interesting and talked to us in between with anecdotes.

Buyer beware.

I bought my ticket on line at 5:58 pm but the site to redeem the voucher was closed at 6:00pm. Also the office is not easily identifiable when you get there. Luckily the Big Bus company that was practically next door was able to honor my reservation and settle with Skyline later. Otherwise I would have lost my ticket without recourse.
