      Horrible Day
      Brent_S, Dec 2022
      I bought the 4 attraction pass but when I checked out, the date was a day off. I messaged customer service and they claimed I had 2 years to activate the pass and then 60 days to use the four attraction passes. The next morning, I tried to open the pass and the app had the passes in the past & cancelled tab. I ended up having to pay the full price for the tours I had reserved on my credit card

      We were in San Francisco for 4 days. We bought the 5 attraction package. It was amazing on all the attractions that we went on. We had such a great time. We also saved so much money with this Explorer package.

      Easy to use and accepted without difficulty. You can’t book in advance though and hope that spots are available when you show up. But the value is great.

      Karen_P, May 2021
      Had a hard time processing the order. The website claimed something went wrong but was still processed through the bank. So 325.00 was still taken from my account. When I called to cancel the order I was told I may not be refunded terrible experience and very frustrating during vacation.

      Great experience considering that one of the excursions costed about as much as the pass itself. Loved passing through the Golden Gate bridge on the Big Bus tour.

      Interesting sights. I was disappointed in the size of the Bay Aquarium. Needs the Bay Aquarium and the Academy of Science Aquarium combine in one place.

      cathy.hillard, Sep 2015
      This was an amazing pass. After initially being given incorrect info re redeeming pass it turned out well. We were time poor but in one day did the bridge to bridge tour , the duck tour , Madam Taussauds and the Dungeons. Captain Milke on duck tour was amazing, highlight of trip. I didn't care for the dungeons but my daughters loved it. There were many other choices too,such great value.

      Cynthia H, Jun 2015
      This pass is good if you have enough time to choose the other four things we only got two others in with all the other tours we booked. Well worth the value.

      Melissa S, Jun 2015
      This was the way to go we saw all the top sites with this and saved about 35. Do look and compare with what you want to do and pick the pass tht works for what you want to see, but in general if there is serveral things you are wanting to do this or either of the other 2 passes are worth it.

      Great deal! We saved a lot of money getting this pass. Beautiful place to visit. If we ever get to go back we will definitely get this pass.

      Jennifer R, Feb 2015
      Our trip was fantastic but the Explorer Pass was terrible if you wanted to use it for the muni/cable cars. We picked up our passes on Saturday at Macy's and specifically asked about using them for public transit. We were told we had to get tickets at the Powell Street cable car ticket office at Powell and Market. Of course we went there and were told they did not recognize the Explorer Pass. We ended up spending more money to buy the day pass. The main reason we got the Exploer Pass was for the cable car/muni access - VERY FRUSTRATING! GET YOUR INFORMATION STRAIGHT, E.P. people and please make sure the venues who issue the passes know how to properly advise customers!

      Nicole K, Aug 2014
      Decide what you want to do before buying the ticket. A lot of the places we weren't interested in. But we found four that we did like the look of. Check as some of the attractions offered have "free" days anyway . Yes it did save money , but didn't allow front of the queue . So compared to the New York city pass it wasn't quite as good. We would promote the academy of science , really worth the visit .
      The pass is a great deal however we...
      Leah L, Jul 2014
      The pass is a great deal however we went to the San Fran visitors center on a Saturday and they were closed and we were unable to get the muni pass to use the cable cars which was a disappointment. You should put the hours on the information booklet so people know when you can use that option.
      Response from Host, Jul 2014
      Thank you for your feedback, we have heard back from the tour operator concerning your review, their response is below: We are disappointed to hear that you were unable to pick up your cable car ticket at the Visitor Center. The Center is open 7 days a week from May - October. It is closed on Sundays and holidays from November - April. However, you may pick up your cable car ticket in Fisherman's Wharf on the days that the Visitor Center is closed. The hours and directions for each ticket location are clearly noted in the accompanying guide and we encourage visitors to contact our customer care department if they encounter any disruptions like this during their trip so that we can resolve issues quickly to get you on your way. Our phone number is also noted in the accompanying guide.

      Brandon B, Jul 2014
      On Saturday we tried to retrieve the muni pass. The visitor center is the place that we were supposed to redeem it. (there was a secondary place but it states it is only open on Sunday) Once we parked and walked over to the address for the muni pass, we found out the visitor center was closed! The night before we tried to use it at the believe it or not attraction, and the attendant told us we could only use it before 5:45pm! All in all, we were only able to use 2 of the 4 activities and we were very upset with that. They need better disclosures or ways to get things like Muni passes.
      Response from Host, Jul 2014
      Thank you for your feedback. We have heard back from the tour operator concerning your review - their comments are below: We have taken note of your feedback to clearly state hours and directions for the muni (cable car) ticket. We have redesigned the accompanying guide and this information is now clearly stated. We are also sorry that you were told that the pass was only valid until 5:45 pm. That is not the case - it can be used any time that an attraction is open - so we will be retraining the ticket agents at the attraction you specified. We encourage visitors to contact our customer care department if they encounter any disruptions like this during their trip so that we can resolve issues quickly to get you on your way. We sincerely regret that things didn't go the way you had planned during your trip.
