How is COVID-19 impacting my upcoming travel plans with my Go San Francisco pass?
Attractions in San Francisco are starting to open and we're working closely with them to ensure a seamless experience during your visit. We advise you check the individual attraction website for the latest opening news.
In light of the outbreak, Go San Francisco has automatically updated passes to be valid for two years from the purchase date. If your travel plans have been disrupted, but you are planning on exploring San Francisco within the next two years, we suggest you hold on to your Go San Francisco pass and do not activate it until your next trip.

Passes and attractions
What is a Go San Francisco pass?
The Go San Francisco pass is an attraction pass that gives you combined savings on San Francisco's best things to do. You can choose from three different passes, all tailored to different types of travelers. Check out our pass comparison page to see which is the best option for you.
How does the Go San Francisco pass work?
There are three pass types to choose from - All-Inclusive, Explorer and Build Your Own. The All-Inclusive pass offers unlimited entry to Go San Francisco attractions for a select number of days. The Explorer pass lets you choose a select number of attractions to visit within 60 days. With the Build Your Own pass you can create your own attraction pass to use within 60 days. Once you've chosen your pass type and purchased, it's ready to use. Simply download your pass to the free Go City app and you can start exploring the city and making huge savings. There's no need to choose your attractions before you buy with the Explorer and All-Inclusive pass. You can pick and choose as you go - just be sure to check the attraction page to see if you need to make a reservation before.
How does the All-Inclusive pass work?
The All-Inclusive pass is perfect for sightseers who are only going to be in the city for a short time and want to see as much as they can.
With this pass, you can choose the number of days you want to sightsee, with 1, 2, 3, or 5 days available. You'll have unlimited access to all the attractions for the duration of your pass. Make sure you check out the attraction line up here for the All-Inclusive pass as they vary from pass to pass.
Once activated, your pass will be valid for the number of consecutive calendar days (not 24-hour periods) indicated on your pass. For example, if you have a three-day pass and you visit your first attraction on Monday afternoon, your pass will be valid for the remainder of that Monday and the following two calendar days (Tuesday and Wednesday). We suggest starting early on your first day to maximize the number of attractions you can visit with your pass. Don't forget to check the opening times of each attraction you plan to visit too so you don't miss out on anything.
The more you see, the more you save – with the All-Inclusive pass, you can save up to 57% on attraction ticket prices.
Want to visit an attraction again? You can. With an All-Inclusive pass, you can visit each attraction once per day for the duration of your pass.
How does the Explorer pass work?
The Explorer pass is perfect for sightseers who are visiting a city for longer and want to take their time seeing the sights without much of a time constraint.
With the Explorer pass, you can choose the number of attractions you're interested in seeing, either 2, 3, 4, or 5. Once you've activated your pass by visiting an attraction, you'll then have up to 60 days to visit the rest. There is no need to choose which attractions you'd like to see before you purchase the card, you can pick and choose any of the Explorer attractions as you go. This allows you to change your mind and wait and see what you feel like in the moment.
The more attractions you choose the more you'll save, and you can save up to 57% on attraction ticket prices with this product. Make sure you check out the attraction line up here for the Explorer pass as they vary from pass to pass.
How does the Build Your Own pass work?
The Build Your Own pass is perfect for sightseers who know exactly what attractions they want to visit and want plenty of time to visit them in.
You can select as many attractions as you want, and you'll have up to 60 days from first activation to visit them in. With the Build Your Own pass, you'll save 20% on attraction admission prices when you select two or more. The Build Your Own pass has its own line up of attractions which you can view here.
