  • Liz .

    Come up from the North Beach side, the stairs from the ocean/embarcadero side are rough!

  • Liz .

    The view is spectacular! You need to pay in the gift shop and get a stamp for the elevator to get up top.

  • Fodor's Travel

    Visit just before sunset (it's $7 for the elevator to the top) when the Transamerica Pyramid, framed by the tower's arches, is bathed in a golden glow.

    Fodor's Travel · August 21
  • Yulia D.

    Huge line, takes about 1hr to get to the top, so come at 9:45, right before the opening

    Yulia Dzhebrailova · August 17
  • Marco E.

    Just another small step, and you are there... It is worth the effort!...

    Marco Ermini · August 16
  • Nicole H.

    360-degree views of downtown. - cool but touristy. Si van a coit tower, pasen por lombard street - la calle famosa swirly (and the street I live on)

  • The Ritz-Carlton

    Since it was established in 1933, Coit Tower has been an emblem of the San Francisco skyline offering a 360 view of the city, the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.

  • Justin S.

    Earn your view by starting at Levi's Plaza and climb the Filbert Street steps up Telegraph Hill. Be kind to the neighbors and neighborhood.

    breathtaking view on the top! remember to take the elevator!

    Stacy · April 26
  • Bre R.

    There are stairs to the east of the tower; take them down (or up). The foliage smells amazing and you can peak at the expensive cliff side homes.

    Bre Roz · April 14
  • Ross H.

    Don't forget to buy a ticket before you start queuing!

    Ross Hopkins · April 8
  • alyssa b.

    There are possibly 20 parking spaces, so prepare to wait for parking or take a cab/walk up the hill. Well worth the visit.

    alyssa burns · April 3
  • Linda A.

    Absolutely worth the walk/climb. The views are amazing. Closes at 5pm and last elevator up at 4:20. Make the time to also see the murals in the lobby - incredible!

    Linda Aldred · March 22
  • Felipe B.

    Great views. However, they close at 6pm, so sometimes during the year you won't be able to see the sunset from the top of the tower.

    Felipe Bubolz · March 15
  • Eric C.

    Go to the top stupid

    Eric Clifford · March 15

    Stunning views of the city from the top of the tower. Ask the attendant to open up the glass windows for taking photographs of Oakland Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge and downtown SFO.

    Abhishek · February 22
  • Reginald P.

    You've gotta spend the 8 bucks and go up the elevator. It's a good view of the bay!

  • Lydia B.

    Do not drive to get there! Use your legs! Beautiful sightseeing all around the tower. You can start from the market and walk along the pier before heading to the tower

    Lydia Berkennou · January 26
  • Jay

    $8.00 for the elevator up. If someone says the stairs up are free...well there are stairs but just for the staff for emergency purposes.

    Jay · January 4
  • 🍉🌽🍍Tay D.

    Sweet view of the city ! Take the stairway walk up here for great path to health.

  • Jason F.

    It's 8$ to get in. The views are nice but nothing special. Dirty windows ruin your photos.

    Jason Fontana · December 1, 2014
  • Max B.

    Beautiful 360 Views of the City and surrounding area. Going up the tower is not free though. Costs 5$.

    Great place to see the fireworks they shoot from Pier 39 with the bay as a backdrop

    Carmen Ibarra · October 16, 2014
