Don't forget to take a ride on the cable cars in San Francisco. At the base of the cable car route at Market and Powell is the turn-about. Watch the driver manually turn the cable car around on this huge disk in the ground, and align the car on the track for its next journey up to the hilltop. These little cars hold passengers from all over the world as it traverses back and forth across the hills of San Francisco - what a treat!

Take cable cars like movie stars do, it is nice feeling to be on it especially if you are travelling with friends. Chet and selfie.

I have seen San Francisco in many films and have always wanted to go on a Cable Car - which I did. Loved how the cable cars are turned round on a turntable at the end of the line. Great value at $7 for a journey too.

There are two cablecar lines. Try to take both of them if you can, but be sure to take the one that goes up (and down, of course) Nob Hill. Amazing to watch the driver if you sit inside the car right behind his area...Very special remembrance of this wonderful city!

Very enjoyable riding from Union Square / Powell station to Fisherman Wharf.. The queue was quite long in the morning, we q'd for like 45 minutes. You can see the manual operation of the car when it turned back at the destination. Going up and down hills and passed through the scenic location, Lombard street and Chinatown... You can buy tickets at the Muni kiosk at Bart station downstairs.
