  • As San Franciscan's we weren't sure if we wanted one of those "fake cable cars" for our wedding. To be honest, we had associated them with touristy, boozy parties and weren't sure if it fit the classic vibe we were looking for. However, after looking around, we quickly realized that a cable car rental was the easiest and most economical way to shuttle our bridal party and guests from our nearby hotel to our venue. Renting a classic cable car turned out to be one of the coolest parts of our wedding! Hornblower was so easy to work with and the cable car that picked us up was beautiful! It was such a fun way to get from point A to point B and because our guests were visiting from all over the world, it provided them with that little special memory of riding a cable car. It was also a really great way to "get the party started". For myself and the bridesmaids, the morning was filled with timelines and to-dos, but once the car picked us up we felt an immediate sense of nostalgia and c... Read more

  • This is one of the best choice we ever made for our wedding transportation! Everyone still talks about how amazing it was to be able to ride one of cable cars, and how it was their favorite part of the day. Our wedding was on the 23rd of February 2018, and from start to finish everything went so smooth. I talked with Jessica who helped us with providing more information and after a few emails back and forth, finally we booked the cable car. I am one of those people that literally research and yelp everything before i do anything. This company is the best, and Jessica has the best customer service and was so patient and informative. Also, our driver Chelsey was awesome!! She was also so patient, and did not rush us at our stops. Chelsey also kept me calm and collected, I think she could tell i was super stressing because i was just overwhelmed with the whole wedding. Also, i wanted to add this cable car is APPLE compatible !! How awesome is that?! We were able to connect our iPhones and... Read more

  • We had a blast! We surprised our wedding guests with a cable car tour of SF. Hornblower picked us up at Fisherman's Wharf where we had our brunch and whisked us away to the most iconic landmarks of SF. Our energetic driver, Nicole, pumped music, tooted the cable car horn and got us all in the mood to celebrate. We were partying so hard down the street, folks passed by waved and danced and took pictures of us! When we hit the Golden Gate Bridge and the wind whipped through us, Nicole gave us blankets! And the party kept rolling. Treat yourself and your guests to this fun filled ride.

  • Hornblower was a PLEASURE to work with! The cost of renting a cable car is definitely offset by the fact that 1. You can fill it up with people and make the transportation worth it, 2. The drivers and their flexibility with your needs for your day are WONDERFUL and so personable, and 3. You're in a CABLE CAR in San Francisco for goodness sake and you have it all to yourself! We used it as transportation from our hotel to ceremony, and ceremony to reception venue (amazing views on the way, by the way), and kept it for an extra hour after arriving at our reception to guests could get an eyeful and pictures if they'd like - and most of them took advantage of that. They were quick to respond and wonderful to work with and while my SO was initially hesitant to book something so seemingly cheesy, he quickly agreed that it was a GREAT choice, especially for all of our out of town guests for the weekend!

  • Jonathan and the team at Hornblower Classic Cable Cards were great! They were quick to respond, and super helpful in getting our itinerary organized. We had some changes to make throughout the booking process, and Jonathan was friendly and flexible in getting everything updated. The ride was great as well - our guests had a great time, and the driver made sure to help us avoid traffic and get to each stop on time. Such a great experience working with these guys!

  • We got three cars for our wedding. Two were to take the guests on a tour to kill time between the ceremony and reception. The other was for the wedding party to go around the city and take pictures. Our guests absolutely LOVED this! I have received many compliments and how fun and awesome the tour was. It made the day that more special for us and our guests. I would definitely recommend Hornblower to anyone who would like an extra special touch for their special day.

  • It was wonderful to have 2 cable cars to transport our wedding guests around San Francisco for sightseeing for 2 hours arriving at The Cliff House for our wedding reception. My only complaint is that there was no water for our guests on board when the Cable Car contact assured me that both blankets and water would be provided. I was very disappointed since we had some older guests on the cable cars (over 80 years old). There were blankets for all of our guests. Otherwise, it was a very nice treat to have all of our guests transported around San Francisco in motorized cable cars.

  • We used Hornblower Classic Cable Cars for our private charter on our wedding day. They were timely, had flexible scheduling and worked well with the coordinators on the day of the wedding. San Francisco is such a destination and we wanted our wedding day to feel as such and used the cable car to transport all guests from the hotel to the ceremony and from the ceremony through a tour to the golden gate bridge and finally to the reception; this definitely made for a very memorable wedding day!

  • Driver showed up on time and was very friendly. However the first thing out of his mouth was that he was a brand new driver, and this was his first trip! Not necessarily the thing you want to hear on your wedding day from the person in charge of navigating you/your entire wedding party around the city to take pictures, then arrive at the church on time (considering traffic). Might be best to leave the "newbies" to other non-wedding trips.

  • Just do it! The cable car is so much more fun than riding around SF in an enclosed van.

  • For out of town guests, it was a very fun service. We only needed transportation for a few miles, so for us, it was an expensive option. We could have used it to tour around a bit, but that really did not fit our timeframe or needs. Still, we did choose to use the service and it was a lot of fun. If a couple wanted to have an hour or so ride after the wedding reception, you would get a better value for your money.

  • Great vendor. Guests loved the cable car. Arrived on time and both booking agent and driver were friendly and professional. Not cheap when using just the one way transfer option, but still really glad I booked them. Fun touch for my SF destination wedding!
