For one month only, see San Francisco at its seasonal best!
Feast your eyes on the festive lights and drink in some holiday cheer on board our delightful electric vehicles! Getting in the holiday spirit comes naturally as you view the beautifully adorned Christmas trees, skating rinks, twinkling bridge lights, and illuminated houses and streets throughout the city. Even the cable cars are festooned with lights!
Our 2-hour Holiday Lights outings include yummy hot cocoa, candy canes, fuzzy Santa hats and plenty of sing-along holiday karaoke tunes on board.
Your Holiday tour begins at Fisherman’s Wharf, snakes along the waterfront and heads to the edge of the Presidio, where you’ll see breathtaking views of the glittering Golden Gate Bridge. Then it’s on to the Palace of Fine Arts, then onward to the decorated Union Street.
Next up is Union Square, the center of the San Francisco’s festivities, witness for yourself why Macy's spectacular window decorations have become so famous! We then head up to Nob Hill, stopping at the Fairmont Hotel to check out their winter wonderland lobby and completely edible two-story gingerbread house (actual house-sized!).
From there, the tour takes you to City Hall, where its exterior glows red and green to celebrate the season. Then, at the Embarcadero, savor (and photograph!) the Bay Bridge light show. San Francisco has a gift for you: the buildings at the Embarcadero Center are outlined in twinkling lights like giant presents! Check out the massive Christmas tree at PIER 39 before arriving back in Fisherman’s Wharf.
Your festive holiday tour guide picks you up in Fisherman’s Wharf.
