Description

from Classic Cable Cars
We are San Francisco’s original cable car tour and charter operator. Some of our cars are originals dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. All of our other vehicles are built from the ground-up using the original cable car blueprints and constructed of solid oak and brass. Hornblower Classic Cable Cars is one of the newest ventures for Hornblower, the company that opened its marine operation 35 years ago.
