People tend to check in during these times:
Tourist? Save money by getting a one way ticket to 0fisherman's Wharf for $5. Then, return by the F street car for $2. You can see more of the city and save $3!
Don't tip the people who play lousy music and force you to listen to it while waiting for the cable car
It's touristy but must-do.
The line is super short during non-peak hours.
Keep your camera close by for great photo opportunities in the hills of SF - great views of the Bay
You're gonna wanna ride a cable car aren't you? Sigh. Watch them turn them around here. It's cool for at least 30 seconds.
A painful tourist trap. I recommend going to Embarcadero to head to Fisherman's Wharf, and THEN take the cable car back; typically less of a line...enjoy!
One of the best places to visit!
As "touristy" as it is, you know you have to take the Powell Street Cable Car! Have your camera at the ready! The fun ride provides you with amazing views! It is a must!
Take this one of a kind San Francisco ride from downtown all the way to Ghirardelli Square (and fill up on some chocolate)!
If its your first time in SF a ride on the cable cars is a must. However, plan to take your ride in the morning or the lines get too long.
Come see the show of a lifetime at Westfield San Francisco Centre! We are rocking through the decades and celebrating the city in a free 3D light spectacular!
Great music performers
Great place to people watch!
Hold on tight. You are in for a fun ride!
If you like old mechanical devices this is a must see. A manual turn-table. Take one of the Powell/Hyde cars to see Lombard St and Alcatraz from Russian Hill.
Make sure to take the Hyde car. It's the one that stops at Lombard St.
Ride a cable car in San Francisco. When San Francisco constructed its cable car system 125 years ago, no one was trying to build a historic landmark or a tourist attraction
Be prepared for long lines on weekends. Much better to try to hop on at a popular cross street where many people are getting off.
Great tourist stop in downtown
Chilly Night @SF
Exit BART here at the turnaround which is the starting/ ending point for the San Francisco cable cars which take you right to Fisherman's Wharf.
Don't wait in the long line. Get your ticket and walk up one block to get the next train.
Tho is very nice!!!!!!!!!
Typically free when you stand on the car instead of sitting
Make sure you pay te weekly $27 unlimited pass, otherwise you will be payin $2 per ride, you can buy the pass at Wallgreens.
Must-do! Sadly way to many tourists....
The cable car is so popular. We waited for two hours...
An hour of wait for the cable car... go to ross instead ;)
Don't wait in line at the turnaround like the other chumps. Walk up the street a block to O'Farrell. Shorter line and the cable car always picks up more passengers from there on the way up.
It's a very praised attraction so be ready to wait...
$6 one way
Give yourself extra time. Long lines, you'll be waiting.
My friends and I like to call this spot, "The center of Everything"
Stop and watch the tap dance guy, but don't forget to tip. Freeloaders suck.
Folks will try to encourage you to get out of line and walk up the street to catch the car. If you do so, be prepared to tip them. Otherwise, don't bother.
U.u trem bala
Say hi to Oliver he's the best monday - friday operator around.
Don't wait at the stops along Powell unless you're willing to stand there all day. We waited 5 minutes at the end turnaround.
Pegue a linha Powell-Hyde para descer no topo da Lombard St. Desça a rua, apreciando suas curvas peculiares e pegue a linha Powell-Mason, na Columbus Ave. para voltar ao centro.
Não preciso deixar tip aqui, né?O local já diz tudo!
Passeio único. Típico de São Francisco. Para quem não tem paciência de esperar não pegue pois é bem demorado. Vale a experiência.
Unbedingt eine Runde fahren
