Holiday tours atop double-decker buses give passengers a Santa’s-eye view, enabling them to size up decorations from floor to ceiling, peek into chimneys to assess their structural integrity, and lasso in passing reindeer for fantasy-hoofball drafts.

  • For $15, you get one adult admission to a holiday-lights bus tour (up to a $29.99 value).

City Sightseeing shuttles passengers between San Francisco’s Yuletide-themed locales on a fleet of 20 double-decker buses. Patrons bundle up and converge around Pier 39’s festively glowing conifer for the 60-minute holiday-lights bus tour, boarding enclosed lower levels or opting for upstairs seating for open-air views of paragliding Christmas carolers. Scarlet motor carriages zoom to twinkling destinations such as Union Square, Ghirardelli Square, and Embarcadero while complimentary hot chocolate, Christmas cookies, candy canes, and bus stickers get riders in the holiday spirit. Passengers can arrive 15–30 minutes early for a photo with Saint Nick, which zips to PCs via email or digital carrier pigeon. Patrons will also receive exclusive discounts to local stores, restaurants, and attractions, which can be used before or after their seasonal outing.
