This is a one-of-a-kind premier city tour that lets you travel the streets of San Francisco in style aboard our authentic Classic Cable Car! During your adventure you can disembark at 3 key locations for up close and personal guided walking tours. Your total experience is our #1 goal! You will be treated like a VIP by our professional staff. We also offer complimentary blankets for your use during the tour!
Hop aboard a motorized Cable Car in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf. As the historical vehicle makes its way down Columbus Street through North Beach and Little Italy, listen to live narration about San Francisco and its notable sights. Cruise through Chinatown, Nob Hill and Union Square on your way to your first stop on the walking tour at Civic center/City Hall. With its Beaux-Arts monument to the City, it showcases the beautiful movement that epitomized the high-minded American Renaissance of the 1880s to 1917.
Once aboard the Cable Car again you will head through the lower Haight district on your way to your 2nd stop on the walking tour at Alamo Square Park. You will get the chance to be up close and personal with the world famous “Painted Ladies” as seen in the opening credits on the show Full House!
All aboard as we now travel through Golden Gate Park, The Richmond district, Sea Cliff and down the coastline as we get ready to jump off at our last but certainly not least stop of the day, The Golden Gate Bridge! The Cable Car arrives at the Golden Gate Bridge, an engineering marvel built across San Francisco Bay during the depression opening in 1937. You’ll step foot onto the famous suspension bridge and listen as your guide shares stories of its art deco structure. Re-board the Cable Car and head back over the Golden Gate Bridge and onward toward the Presidio!
Traverse Pacific Heights, one of San Francisco’s most affluent neighborhoods, and take advantage of photo ops as you pass by the home featured in the blockbuster film ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’! Before we drop-off back at the starting point, the historical vehicle makes its way past Ghirardelli Square, home of the namesake chocolates! Keep your cameras ready as you won’t want to miss any of the one-of-a-kind photo opportunities on the San Francisco Experience City Tour!
Passengers will meet their tour guide at the flag poles between Pier 35 and Embarcadero’s Public Park. See map in our Contact Us page for additional guidance. Tour Guide will be wearing an orange jacket and holding a flag, both adorned with the Hornblower Classic Cable Cars logo.
