    San Francisco is a functioning city and therefore political events, demonstrations and celebrations can disrupt the route at any time, especially during the summer and at weekends.

    Don’t forget to arrive at least 30 minutes before your departure times to avoid getting caught in any last minute delays.

    Wheelchairs can be collapsed down and stored on the bus but the buses are not equipped with ramps and therefore passengers would need to walk up 2 steps.

    On Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and New Year's Eve, the last Hop-On Hop-Off Tours will depart at 4pm (instead of 5pm) and the Night Tour will not be running.

    Don’t forget to arrive at least 20 - 30 minutes before you walking and night tour departures to avoid getting caught in any last minute delays.

    Cruise passenger information: Make a right on Embarcadero St. after exiting Pier 27. Walk about 2 blocks to Pier 35 which is Stop no.19 on the Official city tour. This bus will bring you Stop no.1 at Jefferson and Mason, from where you can walk a distance of a block to the Skyline sightseeing office.

    • Awesome way to see the city in 2days

      This was well worth the money. We purchased the 48hr pass incl night tour. We saw things we wouldn't have seen without this tour. Great experience and super effortless...

    • (Grff - I put San Fran HoHo review in the Isango customer service entry by mistake. Please put that entry here, and instead say:) The customer service rep I spoke with to do a customer ordering arrangement not available via the web went way beyond what I'd expected or hoped for. She even went so far as to follow up on her "weekend" to ensure I was all set! She certainly set a high bar for other businesses to observe in their support models.

      Now I'm spoiled!

    • I would recommend the big bus for a great way to see the city and learn some history of the city,
