The historic cable car

Cable car, San Francisco

San Francisco is a city with many steep streets. This is the reason why cable cars were built, as carriages used to have problems to go up the steep slopes of the city.

If you have the opportunity of visiting San Francisco, do it in the most comfortable and cultural way: with the official tourist bus or on board of the historical cable cars of the city. While the panoramic bus will give you the chance of enjoying the best views and hearing the explanations of the audio guide, with the cable car you will enjoy a unique experience immersing yourself in the San Francisco of the 19th and 20th centuries.

On the one hand, we suggest you to use the San Francisco City Tour tourist bus, which will ride you around the city. You will be able to enjoy the San Francisco City Loop and the Scenic Night Tour route and for the same price you will have the possibility to reach Sausalito with the Sausalito Loop. In addition, you will have the opportunity of getting on and off the bus as many times as you want with the hop-on hop-off service that we offer as well as you will be able to visit all the points of interest.

On the other hand, you cannot miss the benefits of getting on one of the famous cable cars, considered nowadays an historic monument. Beside the fact of being an amazing experience, you will be amazed by the work of the drivers, who use their technical skills to drive them.

If you also want to know the interesting history of this icon of San Francisco, take the official tourist bus San Francisco City Tour and go to the stop 15 (Financial District). Within a walking distance of 10 minutes, at 1201 Mason Street, you will find the famous Cable Car Museum, where you will see how they work, why they are still operating and everything related to the cable car world in the city of San Francisco.
