$49 for the Magic Bus Tour for Two (Up to $100 Value)

Upon boarding the multicolored Magic Bus in Union Square, riders are instantly transported back to 1960s-era San Francisco, a time and place of profound social change, upheaval, and, of course, love. The route first winds through Chinatown before a stop at City Lights Books in North Beach, where beatniks such as Jack Kerouac hung out while writing poems. A jaunt through the financial district leads to the iconic crossroads of Haight-Ashbury, which serves as a fitting harbinger to the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. Throughout the two-hour trip, scenes from the past come to life when video screens lower over the bus's windows, providing a visual narrative packed with historic sights and images.

About Magic Bus Tour

With Janis Joplin's raspy vocals slicing through its speakers, and a costumed guide at its helm, the Magic Bus cruises into the 1960s as it captivates riders with a groovy comparison of San Francisco's past and present. Over the course of a two-hour trip, iconic neighborhoods and city landmarks pour through the bus's windows, which, at various stops, get covered by retractable video screens that flicker with historic images. Tour takers sing along to classic tunes as the bus rolls through Chinatown, Golden Gate Park, and Haight-Ashbury, famous for its role during the Summer of Love, and later, during the notorious crossing guard strike of 1982. Aside from public tours, the Magic Bus opens its tie-dyed doors to private parties and corporate charters.
