Details: San Francisco guided sightseeing tour
Welcome to the city of the Golden Gate Bridge, steep windy roads and the formidable Alcatraz! Follow your guide down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, through Haight-Ashbury, the district known as the center of the Hippie movement in the 60’s, and up onto Nob Hill, known for its affluent residents and spectacular views of the bay. Wander around the specialty shops and restaurants in Union and Ghirardelli Squares and go up Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill for fantastic views of all of San Francisco. Then head to Fisherman Wharf’s Pier 39, with its fashionable shops, high-end restaurants and street performers. Hear the Sea Lions before you even see them as they sunbathe on the boat docks of the pier. And explore the Golden Gate National Park for an up-close view of the famous bridge and to learn about the history and appreciate the beauty of this Bay City.
Details: Fisherman's Wharf
Fisherman’s Wharf is San Francisco’s #1 visitor destination for a reason. Several reasons, actually. Aquatic Park. The Maritime Museum. The famed cable cars. And, of course, Alcatraz. And that’s just for starters. There’s also specialty shopping, world-class dining, and all forms of entertainment—including the area’s most noted performers, the sea lions of Pier 39, whose barks can be heard from blocks away.
Details: Alcatraz Island excursion via ferry
The island of Alcatraz has a rich and storied history, and you'll hear about it all on this tour of one of America's most famous (and infamous) islands. Before becoming the prison of popular lore, Alcatraz previously served as a lighthouse and a military base. But you don't want to hear about that...you want to hear about the prison! Check out the previous cells of such notorious prisoners as Al Capone, Robert Franklin Stroud (the "Birdman of Alcatraz"), and James "Whitey" Bulger. Decide for yourself whether Clarence Anglin, John Anglin, and Frank Morris really drowned in their intricate escape attempt made famous in the film Escape From Alcatraz.
