“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This is one of a kind street. It has amazing views of the city which means plenty of photo ops. We walked up and down. Do it, dont be lazy.

“Another great drive down Lombard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This is a street not to be missed. With an outstanding view of the bay and city, crazy views of the steep streets, and a curvy drive down to the bottom of the steepest stretch - there's nothing like it anywhere else. It's an iconic part of San Francisco and you owe it to yourself to see it!

“The wonkiest street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

San Francisco has plenty of steep roads, but this beats them all.
Very scenic with well kept flower beds. Walkways down both sides from which to watch motorists switchback 8 times before reaching the bottom.
We took the Powell/Hyde tram which stops at the top before taking the walk down.
Another SF gem.

“A fun thing to do, if one has the time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

It's a fun thing to do whilst in SF. Combine it with visiting Castro, Haight-Ashbury, the Mission and taking the old cable car and so on, and it makes a nice addition to a day well spent.
