Why so crooked?
San Francisco is a city of steep hills and crooked streets. One of the most famous and prettiest is a section of Lombard Street near the top of Russian Hill. It's paved with red bricks and lined with gorgeous homes. Back in 1922, at the suggestion of property owner Carl Henry, this block's impossible 27% gradient was transformed into a switchback with eight sharp turns. Cars can only drive one way downhill at a suggested 5 miles per hour.
Main departure -Union Square/Downtown San Francisco-478 Post St. (between Mason & Powell St) across the street from the Westin St. Francis Hotel. OR shuttle from Fisherman's Wharf location 30 minutes earlier -2800 Leavenworth in the Anchorage Square building at the Corner of Leavenworth & Jefferson St.
There are some great views seen along your drive. If taking pictures from the bus, turn your flash off, set your camera on manual focus, use the fastest shutter speed possible, and zoom as far as you can.
This tour involves a minimal amount of walking but does require that you are able to get on and off the bus without assistance or with the aid of a traveling companion. This tour is not wheelchair accessible.
