Frequently Asked Questions

What are "consecutive calendar days"?

"Consecutive calendar days" are days in a row.

If you have a 3-Day card, and you visit your first attraction on a Monday, your card will be valid on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Start your day early to get the most out of your card!

How do I "activate" my card?

Simply visit your first attraction!

How many days should I buy?

Most travelers visit between 2 and 3 attractions each day depending on individual preference. Our most popular card is the 3-Day card.

Is my card valid all day?

You can enter attractions until 5:30pm with the Go San Francisco Card.

What is your refund policy?

We know sometimes travel plans change, even at the very last minute. That's why, if you don't end up activating and using your pass within a year of the purchase date, we'll give you a full refund. No questions asked.

Here's the best part: unlike our competitors, this built-in cancellation insurance comes with every card purchase — free of charge.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to initiate a refund anytime within 1 year of your purchase, please call our Customer Care Team at 800-887-9103. We'll tell you how you can return your non-activated card or pass.

How many attractions can I visit in one day?

On a Go San Francisco Card, you can visit as many attractions as you want in a day from 9:00am-5:30pm.

Can I visit an attraction more than once?

In most cases, you can visit each attraction once per day. Some attractions are valid only once during the life of the pass. Please reference your guidebook for specific information on each attraction.

What is the age cut off for child cards?

Child cards are for children ages 3-12. Most attractions do not charge for children under 3 years old. However, there are some exceptions (especially children's museums and attractions geared toward very young travelers). If you have a child under 3 years old, please check with the attraction directly in advance. You may be charged at the gate.

Do I need to make reservations to visit the attractions?

Attractions that require a reservation will display this symbol on the guidebook page.

Some attractions require a credit card to hold a reservation. In these cases, your credit card will not be charged unless you do not show up for your reservation.

What happens if an attraction is closed or a tour is cancelled due to weather or other problem?

While we do our best to ensure that all attractions are available, events happen that are out of our control. The great thing about a Go San Francisco Card is that there are so many attractions to choose from. If an attraction is closed, or cannot be visited for some reason, we know you'll find a fun alternative in your guidebook!

What do I do if my Go San Francisco Card is lost or stolen?

Unfortunately, it cannot be replaced if it is lost or stolen. Please treat the card like cash.

May I use a Go San Francisco Card to visit Alcatraz Island?

If you purchase a 3-day or 5-day Go San Francisco Card directly from Alcatraz Cruises, you may visit Alcatraz Island (subject to reservations and availability). View more Alcatraz information.

What’s the catch?

There’s no catch. Go San Francisco Card has a partnership with all of the participating attractions to make your visit to San Francisco as memorable as possible and to help you save time and money.

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Francsico Card:

We love to do and see as much as we can wherever we go! We bought the 7 day for our week in San Francisco and with some advanced planning we saved over 60% on all the things we wanted to do. The card has a great variety and number of attraction options in the SF Bay Area. There really is something for everyone and the Welcome Book had coupons for even MORE savings. AWESOME! I wish we had known about The Go Card 10 years ago when we vacationed in SF with our kids!

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Francsico Card:

This one the single best thing we did for ourselves. We booked the bigger tours before we left home and decided we would do these rain or shine. The others we did at our leisure. The fact that we turned into pumpkins between 4pm and 5:30 didn't bother us because we learned to pace ourselves! Great deal! We purchased a five-day pass for a seven-day trip. If we were younger or more resilient, we could have gotten the 6/7 day card!

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Francsico Card:

I bought two tickets for a day out in SF. It saved us so much money (every attraction is expensively, overpriced). This allowed us to see many things for one low price. If you are visit SF for the first time buy the multiple day pass. I have been to SF plenty of times and still only got to see 3 attractions although we were there from 9am to 9pm. We enjoyed every minute

Timing Can Be Tricky

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Francsico Card:

Was worried I would not use it enough to get my money worth but even only attending half of what we planned I broke even. If you plan well you can save so much more. Boat rides great but many were the same type so we only went on one. Sciences Academy a big one and trolley good tour but get on at the beginning not Union Square, too busy. Don't bother with Go Cars, no tour included and too busy of an area to feel comfortable driving. Liked the flower Conservatory and many people were renting the bikes but we walked the Golden Gate. If you are planning Six Flags you may want to consider use for parents who do not go on rides.

Great Vacation Product - Must Have
By Mike the Planner Verified Reviewer from Somerset County, NJ on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Francsico Card:

We had 5-day card for family of four in SF. If you are willing to keep things moving, you will more than double your value (city bus tour, Science Museum, SS Jeremiah OBrien, 2 harbor cuises, USS Hornet, Aquarium by the Bay, AT&T Park Tour, a full day at Six Flags, Charles Schultz museum in wine country). Also did a 5-day card in San Diego two years ago. Just as easy and well worth it. As long as you research ahead of time, you won't be surprised by unexpected (vendors no longer included, parking, etc).

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Francsico Card:

We had the 2 day card. For us it worked perfectly. You really need to plan ahead to get the most from your card and start your day early. The next time we visit SF I want to get a 3 or 5 day card to do and see even more. It was easy to use, no hassles at any of the attractions. When you add up the cost of each attraction and compare it to the cost of the card, you make that up in just 1 or 2 attractions, the rest is gravy. The "go card" is sometimes on social media sites like groupon or living social, so it is good to keep any eye out for it. You can't go wrong with the Go Card. I want to give a big shout out to Phil, who was our tour guide on the open top bus tour. We were on the 2pm tour on May 10th! Not only was he knowledgeable, he was hilarious. My husband and I were laughing throughout the tour and we even referred to a lot of the funny comments he made along the tour during the rest of our stay. Go Phil!!!

Family of 3, ONE DAY Itinery and savings
By inthehaze Verified Reviewer from Pasadena, CA on
Pros:
Savings, Walking Distance

Hectic Schedule, Ends at 530pm
Best Uses:
Wax Museum, Sky View Tour SS Jeremiah O'Brien Bay cruise Exploratorium Aquarium
Bottom Line:

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Francsico Card:

Here's how a family of 3 (w/10yr old child) spent 2 days in SF. One day we used the City Go Card, the other day was our "free day". Drove up from Pasadena and checked into our Fisherman's Wharf area hotel on a Thursday evening, on a clear August weekend. Purchased our Go Cards (for Friday) from [@] and spent the evening on the Embarcadero and walking the city. Friday we began the Go Card activiities. Enjoyed the hotel buffet breakfast (7:30 - 8:30). Mom likes to sleep and relax in the morn so I took my daughter to the Jeremiah O'Brien Liberty Ship (9-10am). We then all drove to the Exploratorium (free parking), 10:30 - 12:30, a MUST DO if you have children. Drove back to our hotel, dropped off the car, grabbed a quick lunch and walked over to Pier 39 for a SkyView Double Decker 2 hour city tour (1-3pm). The Golden Gate is amazing but beware, cold cold cold in some places. Next was the bay boat cruise, which again was cold. Around 5:30pm we walked over to the Wax Museum. About 7pm, we entered the Aquarium, with the must see underwater aquarium. This was the last activitiy using the Go Card. Afterwards we ate dinner on the pier. The next day (Saturday) was our "free day" we spent walking the Golden Gate park and beaches. But if you're interested in the math, the amount we WOULD HAVE spent without the cards totalled about $307. The Go Cards were [$]. Would I recommend the Go Cards? We'll, if you or your travelling companions are not used to being on a schedule, and are lookie loos, taking their sweet time everywhere, no I wouldn't. Times for tours are strict and yes, you can take the next one, but that limits your activities for the rest of the day. The card is supposed to be valid from 9-7pm, BUT reading the fine print, most places accept the cards only from 10 - 5:30pm. Why didn't we choose the City Pass, which features Cable Cars and Muni Transport? Well, the avg. wait time for a Cable Car is about 1 1/2hrs!! Would loved to have done a ride but we were time limited. Plus most of the activities are within walking distance from each other. The 5 other CP activities are included on the Go Card anyways, which is surprisingly much cheaper. We had a great time and would be happy to answer any questions. Can't wait to go back and cross the GGate Bridge, and visit Alcatraz!

If you have the stamina for a marathon
By Asian Verified Reviewer from Fairfield, CA on
Cons:
Time constraint,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Go San Francsico Card:

GO SAN FRANCISCO CARD You can save a lot if you can squeeze many activities in a day. I'd recommend one to get a one day go card while one still has the energy to do a lot. Otherwise, it could really be tiresome. The pressure of getting your money's worth could get on one's nerve. I'd recommend this itinerary for one day of sightseeing: *skyview tour *bridge to bridge cruise *ride on the historic cable car *drive GoCar on the crookedest street *if time permits,do any: S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien U.S.S. Hornet Aquarium of the Bay Wax Museum One piece of advice: start early at 10 AM with the skyview tour so you can catch the 12:30 bridge to bridge cruise (schedule good as of May 2012). The Golden Gate bridge becomes so foggy in the afternoon that one might not get a good view on late afternoons. Also, since redemption of tickets is only until 5:30, I'd suggest one to get the tickets for the wax museum and aquarium of the bay before then and just come back later. Anyway, the wax museum is open until 9 PM and the aquarium until 8 PM.
