Overview
On this San Francisco tour, drive down the very steep and crooked Lombard Street, and around neighborhoods such as the Mission, the Castro, and North Beach without worrying about getting around or parking. Venture down streets other bigger bus tours can’t go, and get in the loving spirit the City by the Bay is well known for as you spot famous musicians’ homes while listening to classic 1960s songs.
