June 6 is D-Day, but on the F-line that day, “D” stands for “delightful.” Market Street Railway and San Francisco City Guides are once again collaborating on a guided history tour of Market Street and The Embarcadero aboard the fabulous open-top “Boat Tram*” (Blackpool, England, Car No. 228) that offers unobstructed views of the sights and sounds of a Saturday in the City.

Join tour guides Harlan Hirschfeld from City Guides and Paul Lucas from Market Street Railway on one of our priceless “museums in motion” for their informative ride along the F-line where you will learn interesting historical facts about famous Fisherman’s Wharf, traditional North Beach, the scenic Embarcadero, colorful Ferry Plaza, the busy financial district, world famous Powell & Market, classic Civic Center, imposing Mint Hill and the lively Castro.

The tour runs from 1:30-3:30 pm, starting and ending at our San Francisco Railway Museum, 77 Steuart Street across from the Ferry Building.

Sign up today for $40 per person. (Market Street Railway members receive a 25% discount, so please consider joining us before you buy your tickets…you can get the discount on two tickets!) Seating capacity is limited, and we’ve already sold a bunch of tickets, so don’t delay.

Your ticket purchase provides the funds required to charter the streetcar from Muni, so all ticket sales must be final. All proceeds go to support Market Street Railway and City Guides in their work to keep San Francisco’s transit history alive.
