Step aboard Magic Bus and back in time! With bubbles in the air and a flower in your hair, feel yourself transported to the Summer of Love. Passing streets blend with historic projections on retractable window screens, creating a immersive experience so you can tune in, turn on and rock out! Our hippie hostess will guide you through time and space, sharing the cultural landmarks and secrets of San Francisco's hippie movement. Feel yourself transported to 1960s San Francisco aboard Magic Bus for a fun-filled historical city tour. Become a part of the Beatnik generation, see Haight-Ashbury in the Summer of Love and visit San Francisco’s Chinatown, from which eastern philosophy spread in the 1960s. Discover the landmarks and secrets of iconic neighborhoods as they are now with your own eyes, and see the past come alive with retractable projection screens that occasionally cover the windows, giving you a look back in time.

Board the brightly colored Magic Bus at 280 Geary Street in Union Square, San Francisco, just across from Macy’s and closest to the corner of Geary and Powell streets.  Your journey through time begins as you are transported from Union Square to Chinatown, a culturally vibrant pocket of San Francisco that is home to the largest populations of Chinese in America. Chinatown was a major influence on American exposure to eastern philosophies in the 1960s and beyond.

Next, visit North Beach, where you will see the City Lights bookstore. City Lights was the epicenter of profound social change in San Francisco, where many famous Beat-generation poems were published and Beatniks like Jack Kerouac hung out.
