Voucher information: Sorry, but we will need you to print a paper version of your booking voucher (we're working on changing this). At this time no refund can be given for customers without a printed version of their voucher.

Your voucher will be valid for 3 months from the date chosen at the time of booking.

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.

On Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and New Year's Eve, the last Hop-On Hop-Off Tours will depart at 4pm (instead of 5pm).

Don’t forget to arrive at least 20 - 30 minutes before your departure times to avoid getting caught in any last minute delays.
