“Nice Overview!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

We went to Telegraph hill to get an overview of the city, we were not dissapointed. Excellent place to take in the view of Lombard street and the bridges in one go. Hopefully the trees around the parking will be trimmed a little, and they might have by now, they were blocking some really nice views. Recommended! You may do this attraction for free or enter the tower itself for a fee.

“Parrots!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Do yourself a favour- take the 39 bus to the top, enjoy the amazing view and then take the stairs down. The steps down through the neighborhoods are a delight and if you hear lots of squawking look up - it may be the legendary Wild Parrots Of Telegraph Hill.

“wonderful view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Took the bus up on a beautiful day. Great views of San Francisco and the Bay. Can't believe that this hill is so close to the waterfront with how densely SF is developed

“View worth the Steps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

We walked from Embarcadero Street over and began the steps at Filbert. There are resting areas along the way. The views are spectacular. Coit Tower is closed for renovations, but it is still worth the hike on a clear day.
