Twin Peaks Tours

star-4
2,098 Reviews
Twin Peaks
Rising more than 900 feet (274 meters) above San Francisco, Twin Peaks provides a panoramic view of the city and beyond. On clear days, from these two hills you can see for miles, taking in the Golden Gate Bridge, the Presidio, Alcatraz Island, downtown San Francisco, and Berkeley, Oakland, and Sausalito across San Francisco Bay.

The Basics
Most visitors take in sweeping vistas from the scenic overlook, but it’s also possible to follow short trails up the two hills of Twin Peaks—South Peak and North Peak—for unobstructed views. Many San Francisco city tours include a stop at Twin Peaks for photo ops, while some half-day tours combine a visit here with other Bay Area landmarks, such as Muir Woods and Sausalito, or a bay cruise. For an insider’s view, consider an urban-hiking tour that also takes in some of the city’s lesser-known stairways and hills.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Restrooms and a parking lot are available.
  • The scenic overlook in the North Peak parking lot is wheelchair accessible.
  • Bring layers, as you may feel strong winds standing at the second-highest point in San Francisco.
  • Wear sturdy shoes if you plan to explore any of the hiking trails in the 64-acre park.
 
How to Get There
Twin Peaks is located in a residential area of central San Francisco, about a 30-minute drive southwest of downtown. Unless you’re on a city tour, it takes a special trip to get here; you won’t just pass by on your way to other attractions. Drive up Twin Peaks Boulevard from either Clarendon Avenue or Portola Drive, or take a cab or ride-share vehicle.
 
When to Get There
The park is open daily from early morning to midnight. For extra-special views, go at sunrise or sunset. During summer it can be difficult to avoid the city’s fog; aim for late afternoon for your best chance of clear photos if you’re visiting during this time.
 
Nearby Neighborhoods
The two closest neighborhoods to Twin Peaks that are popular with San Francisco visitors are Haight-Ashbury and the Castro. Plan your sightseeing adventures so you can also explore these two districts, both known for their seminal roles in San Francisco’s countercultural history.

You're in a special city. Why take an ordinary tour? This is the ONLY convertible MINI Cooper tour in the country! This tour is totally customizable – you choose the length of the tour, what time you want to be picked up, and what you want to see. I love San Francisco and have spent 20 years studying and exploring the city. I’ll work with you to plan your tour so you can see the famous sites and the hidden gems other tours can't go to or don't know about. I’ve designed this to be the type of tour I would take if I visited San Francisco, but where you go is up to you. I make suggestions along the way, but how long you spend at any site is up to you. You're never rushed, and never have to wait for other people. It's all about you! Plus, it's fun! In the convertible MINI Cooper, you see everything up close and personal as we drive along. I love showing guests San Francisco, and talking about the history and culture of this unique and special city.
