About San Francisco
City Sightseeing San Francisco: endless things to do and see
The city's rich history includes the fort, which was established in 1776 by the Spanish at the Golden Gate and a mission named for Francis of Assisi on the site ; the destruction of much of the city by the 1906 earthquake and fire and its hosting of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition after it was rebuilt, several years later. Today, San Francisco is a popular destination renowned for its steep rolling hills, eclectic mix of Victorian and modern architecture and its famous landmarks which include the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, and Chinatown. Discover this abounding destination from the top of an English Double-Decker bus!
The city's restaurants and museums are world class and the mild climate makes touring from an open top Double-Decker bus a pleasure at any time of year. Don't miss the Golden Gate Bridge and a trip to Alcatraz Island. Ride a cable car, spend an afternoon in the alleys of San Francisco's Chinatown (the largest outside Asia) and enjoy an evening in North Beach - the Italian District.
In a city with a multitude, if there is one classic San Francisco view - it is the vista across the Bay from Pacific Heights and the northern waterfront. The presence of the Golden Gate Bridge sets this view apart from all others. Why not take a stroll around San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art which includes works by artists as varied as René Magritte, Jeff Koons, Piet Mondrian and Marcel Duchamp? Or perhaps pay a visit to the Great American Music Hall, the Financial District, the Civic Center or Fisherman's Wharf. A tour on one of our bright red City Sightseeing buses will enable you to do all of this and more.
