I’m so happy with our decision to get the City Pass! It’s easy to use and helped us choice our itinerary. Viator has so many options for tours. It’s a one stop shop! I’ll be recommending it to family and friends.

No vaccine no entry
John_F

Only if you are vaccinated should you buy this because the state of California requires a vaccine to enter and remain inside place of business. Anything open or outdoors doesn't require anything so only get this if you have had the vaccine and can prove it

San Francisco is just waking up and opening up. Be patient and have fun.
Norman_E
, Jun 2021
I love CityPASS for making our favorite attractions affordable. We used ours just ahead of California's restrictions being withdrawn on July 1, and folks at the various attractions asked fun questions about whether or not we had reservations, what CityPASS was, and the websites for the attractions did not have accommodations for CityPASS users when we tried to make reservations. I understand that the US is just waking up from the pandemic and we were patient and folks at attractions were also patient with us. Updating websites regarding restrictions, COVID requirements, etc. would have been helpful. Potential CityPass users: be a good guest and carry a mask. Not every city, business or restaurant is as accommodating of non mask users as the places you frequent at home. Bus schedules? Us the Maps app in your phone to find bus routes to the attractions you are getting to. Apple or Google did a good job of setting their individual apps up. When selecting the mode of travel, just select the bus icon over the car or walking icons and bingo, there is the bus route.

Poor service
Karla_M
, May 2021
I am very disappointed with the service. I bought 4 tickets for San Francisco and only one of the attractions had a link to make a timed reservation. We showed up at the aquarium of the bay to be turned away because they were sold out. We couldn’t find the instruction on where to take the cruise also included in the ticket and spend about an hour trying to talk to customer service to get an answer. I called and got disconnected twice and had to start all over again. At the end I never got an answer. I was told to call the tour operator and they put me on hold for over 30 minutes and never connected with anyone. I tried the chat feature and they told that they will check and let me know by email which has not yet arrived and it has been more the 12 hours . In conclusion you are better off buying your tickets directly and getting your reserved time that using the city pass.

Science Museum was good. De Young art museum was great. Legion of Honor Art Museum was killer! Don't waste your time on Aquarium of the Bay. MUNI is not straight forward. I tried to use an app called TRANSIT to navigate it but was less than successful.

The City Pass is a great Value for a trip of more than two days. You can go every where with just a little Bus schedule study time. Learn to by-pass the big crowd at the end of Powell st. , by catching the Cable Car a few blocks up just past Geary st. on a concrete platform in the middle of the street. Just hop on and show them the City Pass Booklet it's like a magic pass to all of YOUR TRANSPORTATION NEEDS.....P.S. Don't forget all the cool Things To Do included in your City Pass..... BO

From easy use of the transportation system to enjoying the many museum and special views of the area the Harbor Boat Ride, the City Pass provided access to some of SF most popular and unique sites. Good value if you are planning on really exploring the area!

Just for the Muni pass it pays for it self. Acuarium of the Bay is not that interesting. It's small. Exploratorium is fun. California Academy it's great! Blue and Gold cruise it's great too, just a bit bumpy and the turn around of the boat behind Golden Gate Bridge, was pretty scary! We felt it would turn over!

Worth every dollar. We visited some places that werent on our itinerary but the passes were in with the CityPass. I would highly recommend the Science Museum which has a tropical rain forest and underwater tubes and aquariums that have to be seen to be believed. The Exploritorium was interesting but would be better if you have a couple of kids with you to explain everything to. It also saved us a fortune on transport as the cost is 2.25 dollars whether you are going one stop or several stops. Highly recommend, saves a lot of money in the long run.

Awesome! Brings you to all the nice attractions. Best thing is that public transport is included. Must-have if you go to San Fransisco for a weekend. Tip: if you want to go to Alcatraz, book your trip upfront, because you can't buy tickets for the same day.
