Tower Tours


Tower Tours offers a wide range of trips throughout the Bay Area and beyond. You can take a trip all throughout downtown San Francisco, head up north to the famous California Wine Country, take a boat to Alcatraz, or even go far inland to explore Yosemite!  One really nice bonus is that Tower Tours offers free pick-up from most San Francisco hotels.  See their full list of San Francisco tours. We recommend that you start with their Grand City Tour.

Their tours are not technically hop-on, hop-off tours since the buses don’t stop at all the main attractions. However, on some tours (such as their trip to the Muir Woods forests or Yosemite Valley) you can get off the bus to walk around for a while, experience the outdoors, and snap some pictures.



Reviews of Tower Tours

Tower Tours have received a 4 out of 5-stars rating on TripAdvisor for their high-quality service. As with many other highly rated services on this list, most of the complaints from customers are too random to even be worthy of mention. Most reviewers had a blast on this bus tour, so chances are that you’ll have a good time as well!  Tower Tours also offers combo packages and tours outside of San Francisco.
