Lombard Street

1000 block of Lombard Street, between Hyde and Leavenworth Streets, San Francisco, 94109

The Basics

Some San Francisco tours include a Lombard Street stop or drive-by, but most tour vehicles are prohibited. Opt for a more niche experience like an urban hiking tour or a Segway tour if you want to visit Lombard Street with a guide. From the top of the street, look toward North Beach for a view of Coit Tower and San Francisco Bay.

The Best Way To See San Fran
Honestly the best way to see the streets and sites of San Fran. Our Segway guide Nic was absolutely superb. Made us all feel very comfortable stepping onto the segway and had a fun and bubbly personality which made the tour enjoyable all the way round . If you want to see the all get major tourist attractions and have fun whilst doing it (and avoid walking those steep hills) book this tour you won’t regret it . Great fun. :-)

The audio tour was excellent as we knew where we needed to turn and heard interesting information of where we were at during the tour. This was a great way to see and learn about San Francisco.

1-Hour Golden Gate and Lombard GoRide Scooter Tour
Four of us headed out into the streets of SF headed for the GG bridge. We had a blast! Our biggest surprise was how courteous the drivers of SF were to us. Not once did I feel unsafe bc of a reckless or discourteous driver around us. We must have taken a wrong turn because we ended up on Lombard Street. We were not prepared for that but laughed the whole way down and survived! The crew was helpful with preparing us for our journey. They were patient, friendly and gave us some time to practice in their parking lot. Rental tip: show up a bit early to do the online waivers and make sure you scan the correct code as they are different for the cars and the scooters.

Advanced Lombard Street and Hills of SF Segway Tour
The tour day was our last day in US and scheduled to fly in the evening. So we had 2 minds one is having relax day without no tour the other is want to join the advanced segway tour. And we were so relieved that we didn't make a mistake by skipping this tour. So much pleasant times with Melanie and took the privilege to ask for photos as many as we want. Melanie was kind enough to take many photos of us and provide the knowledgeable stories about San Francisco. It was our third time to ride segway and the most exciting as we could ride on the road and hills. Thanks Melanie to make our day wonderful.

2HR Golden Gate Bridge and Lombard Loop GoCar Tour
Such a great way to cover a lot of the city! It was easy to drive and got us around quickly. The guided tour was perfect, we did the 2 hr tour and saw a lot, I wish we had time for the 3hr since it goes through golden gate park! I will definitely do this in other cities too! So so fun!

Advanced Lombard Street and Hills of SF Segway Tour
This was our 3rd time riding Segways (1st time in SF Golden Gate Park, 2nd time in Boston). This tour was the best by far! Yes, it required previous riding experience, but our tour guide Melanie gave us a refresher on the finer points (like stopping and going up/down hills :) It was so fun going down Lombard street, and we had experienced some beautiful city views at some of the stops. Melanie was a great tour guide and kept us throroughly entertained! We'll definitely be back for more tours!

2HR Golden Gate Bridge and Lombard Loop GoCar Tour
Seeing everything from a go car rather than being in a bus or personal vehicle was so much fun. I loved that the historical facts were prompted by your gps location. Driving down Lombard Street was an awesome experience. Seeing the Golden Gate Bridge From the base of the bridge was fantastic.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Lombard Street is a must-see for first-time visitors and families.

  • This is a residential area, so be respectful of the private homes on both sides of the street.

  • Wear shoes appropriate for walking down a steep grade.

  • Hyde and Leavenworth streets at either end of Lombard’s switchbacks are busy San Francisco roads; blocking traffic while trying to take pictures is not recommended.

How to Get There

For the most quintessentially San Francisco experience, take the Powell–Hyde cable car line, which runs north from Union Square, to the top of Lombard Street. Alternatively, Muni bus 45 stops at Leavenworth and Union streets, a few blocks away. If you want to drive down the one-way street in your own car, you must go west to east from Hyde to Leavenworth; take the switchbacks slowly.

When to Get There

Lombard is a public street and has no opening or closing hours. If you want to avoid catching too many other visitors in your photos, go as early in the day as you can. On busy summer days and weekends, the line of cars waiting to drive down can stretch for blocks, so try to be flexible if you’re visiting during this time.

Fisherman’s Wharf

The crooked portion of Lombard Street is about eight blocks from Fisherman’s Wharf, so it’s easy to explore both in the same day. If you visit Lombard Street first, it’s a downhill walk to the wharf. Enjoy views of San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz Island along the way.
