San Francisco


San Francisco in Northern California sits at the northern end of the San Francisco peninsula and is known for its hilly streets and often foggy climate.  

With its modern public transportation system and historic trams and streetcars it is easy to get about in this city. A popular mode of transport for locals is by bicycle and our North American team have sourced some great ways to see the city, some modern some historic.


The city of San Francisco was first settled by a Spanish exploration party in 1769 and, similar to Los Angeles, was ceded to Mexico in 1821.  

Following the Mexican-American war in 1848 the city became part of the United States. Unfortunately San Francisco sits close to the San Andreas and Hayward faults and many historic buildings have been lost during the many earthquakes but the historic centre of the city is around Market Street and the waterfront.

If you are visiting the iconic Golden Gate Bridge why not add in a visit to Fort Point which is situate at the foot of the bridge to discover the history of the bay. See the city from an original Cable Car or visit the San Francisco Cable Car Museum.


You can tour and explore the city in many ways with 365 Tickets. We have something for everyone be it bus tours, boat tours, bike tours, segway tours and even GoCar tours! Or you can use our range of passes and travel and tour Cards to explore to your heart's content.


Unsurprisingly the sea features heavily in San Francisco's attractions. Visit Pier 39 for a 7D Experience, a mirror maze and The Aquarium of the Bay.  Many Boat trips leave from here too including Adventure Cat Sailing. For the chocolate lovers try a visit to the San Francisco Chocolate Factory in Ghirardelli Square.

For Museum lovers we can offer tickets for the California Academy of Sciences and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.  Also try the Exploratorium, a visit to the SS Jeremiah O’Brien or the San Francisco Maritime Museum. The city abounds with many different museums and Art galleries.


The famous prison of Alcatraz sits off the coast of San Francisco. Why not try a visit and see how the notorious prisoners were kept!

The beautiful Sonoma and Napa Valleys can easily be reached from San Francisco with their wineries and beautiful countryside. It is also possible to visit the beauty of the Yosemite National Park from a city base too.

If nature is not your thing how about a visit to the home of computing Silicon Valley.
