Honestly, it's a very cute street, but streets around are way too busy and filled with tourists. We stopped on our bike ride, took one or two pics then left.

Well worth seeing if shorter than imagined. Very steep road, with lots of steps when walking down the path at one side.

Definetely worth walking down this peculiar path. Suggest to take the cable car up and walk down. More relaxing. Great houses along the path

Lombard Street is definitely worth paying a visit if you calves can cope! The views from the bottom are good.. the views from the top are great! The in-between is hard on the legs but worthwhile! I wish we had ordered an Uber and asked...More

Rather over rated as a tourist attraction. At the end of the day it is a street with lots of bends in it!

We thought we were driving in the direction of the bottom, but it ended up being the top! It was pretty fun driving down the street. It’s historic, and a famous street so I would recommend it!

Left Coit Tower and headed straight to Lombard. If you can handle to extreme hills, it's worth the walk. Be careful of the intersections at the top and bottom as traffic will be high, and many people stand everywhere with little regard to their surroundings.

Ok, it is just a short one block long brisk street that winds down a hill. Interesting, but there were so many people blocking the roads to take pictures it made the experience less than enjoyable. I feel sorry for the residence who live on...More

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period

The bus tour does not stop directly here. However it was only 4 blocks away from the nearest stop and we walked it. It is a very steep walk mind but that’s San Francisco!
