On this San Francisco tour, drive down the very steep and crooked Lombard Street, and around neighborhoods such as the Mission, the Castro, and North Beach without worrying about getting around or parking. Venture down streets other bigger bus tours can’t go, and get in the loving spirit the City by the Bay is well known for as you spot famous musicians’ homes while listening to classic 1960s songs.
What to Expect

This groovy San Francisco tour meets at Fisherman’s Wharf. Once you greet your guide, hop aboard a ’70s-era VW bus, complete with shag carpet, beaded curtains, and hippie vibes. Your tour bus can hold up to only six passengers, so it’s an intimate experience with lots of personalized attention.

As you ride through San Francisco’s colorful neighborhoods such as Chinatown, North Beach, the Mission, and the Castro, your guide tells you all about the city’s history and culture.

Drive down Lombard Street and pass the homes of famous musicians such as Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. Learn about the city’s past and present during this guided tour as you rock out to classic 1960s songs in between your guide’s fun facts. Your tour also stops at the Golden Gate Bridge for a photo opp of one of the world’s most famous bridges.

Your San Francisco tour ends back at Fisherman’s Wharf.

Fun tour of the City!!

This was a fantastic way to see San Francisco. Fun being driven around in a vintage VW van. Our guide was knowledgible and friendly. Perfect amount of time for sitting in the van. Suggest taking the early trip - less traffic.

No, but you won't be disappointed at the things you will see. I'm sure you can ask the driver if it's possible to pass by otherwise you will see tons of other beautiful Victorian homes.
