    The best view tower i have been too. Great view to all sides of the city and the tickets are not expensive at all. GREAT!

    One of the most important signs in all the city of San Francisco

    It seems they close the walk-up free self tour at their whim. That sucks.

    The line was SUPER long so we didn't go up but the view was still worth it at the top and the flowers on the path up the hill were also super beautiful.

    The view you get from the top of the tower on a nice day is spectacular. That's ultimately what this place is about so if you have a nice camera you'll get some pretty amazing shots. $8 per person.
  • Chris P.
    Climb it. I dare you. But worth it.

    Nice to look at from afar, but going to the top is rather overrated. Go to Twin Peaks instead: Better view over the city, no entrance fees and no waiting queue.
  • Marcel F.
    A MUST-SEE when visiting San Francisco! You have to wait for some minutes but it's worth it! I recommend this on your first day because it will you provide you with a 360-degree great overview!

    The staircases to the bay bridge direction was an amazing walk. I didn't go up the tower but the walk was one of those bests moment in San Francisco for me.
