Fabulous views of the city, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate bridge. A real Kodak moment! It gets really crowded so you have to jostle to get a good shot, there was even a bride having wedding photos up here!

The thing we weren't prepared for when we arrived in SF (in the US Summer) was the fog!!! Really, really crazy. It's so hard to plan things around it, because you never know when it's going to be at its worst, when it will clear etc. We also had no idea how to get up there as the sightseeing buses... More

Always good to be able to see a city from a high point and this did not disappoint as you got a 360 degree view

Ended up here on the last part of a city tour and it was the best view of the city we could imagine. Great pics on a clear day.

If you're renting a car or taking a tour, Twin Peaks, on a clear day or evening, is one of the most beautiful FREE sights of San Francisco. On a clear day, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, Alcatraz and Angel Islands. On that same clear day, you can also see across the Bay to the... More

Great views but not much else up there. Wouldn't have minded a drink or a snack. Especially as our bus broke down up there.

If you can get up there as it is very busy, you will experience a really good view of the whole city. Whilst we were there we saw the fog roll in from both sides, it was amazing. It would have been nice to stay a bit longer but our schedule didn't allow it. Great place for photographs.

Must go fully prepared with a good jacket as it may be very windy and cold over there. Worth a visit as provides fine views of the city and golden gate bridge. Views of the pacific in the evening can sometimes be very interesting!

And Twin Peaks is where you get to see all of its magnificence at the same time. Rent a car (or something with an engine) if you are not quite the climber.
