“A must .. great nostalgic way to get around”

Owner description: Since 1873, cable cars have run up and down the hilly city, though after the 1950s, these cars have been kept in operation more out of historic nostalgia. Seventeen miles of track remain and have been deemed a historical landmark.

In San Fran then of course the cable cars are a must.. It is really interesting that they have trolleys from many places so you can be on such different examples depending on where you are.. If you are brave you can ride them on the outside holding onto the external rails... amazing that they let you do this.

It has to be, it simply has to be! Worth the queue if there is one, just get on the end and be patient!

Whether you’re using them for transport or just to see what they’re like, riding the cable cars is a must in San Fran! Amazing experience and one of a kind- great way to see the city. Stand if you can for a better view

Planned to do this at the last minute. It was about an hour wait in line. It was a fun experience and am glad I did it. Took you to some hot spots in San Francisco. It aloud you to see bit more of the city. Which was good for me because I wasn’t in town long.
