Owner description: Since 1873, cable cars have run up and down the hilly city, though after the 1950s, these cars have been kept in operation more out of historic nostalgia. Seventeen miles of track remain and have been deemed a historical landmark.

Tip. to avoid long line at cable car run about terminal, walk at least two stops and wait for the coming cable cars.....Easiest way to reach the Marina District and the wharves, Lombard street is on its track too, a little pricey for one way ride to get rid of the hilly Powell and California Streets.

The cable car experience is exquisite and worth doing. We had an irate rude and angry driver who divided his time between glaring at customers, abusing them,calling one couple crazy and generally doing his best to spoil the experience. Someone needs to tell him he would not have a job without customers. With a proper driver this would be rated excellent

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.
