Start your day with a visit to Alcatraz, and in the afternoon see San Francisco with a local guide on an Insider’s Tour. Tell your guide what interests you, and then head out to visit the famous and some of the not-so-famous sites of the City by the Bay.
What to Expect
Start your full-day program with a morning trip to Alcatraz! Make your way to Pier 33 to pick up your Alcatraz tickets and board the boat that will take you to the island prison.
Your Alcatraz tour begins with a 45-minute audio presentation called Doing Time: The Alcatraz Cell House Tour, featuring recordings of actual guards and inmates who lived and worked at the facility.
In the afternoon, you’ll meet your guide and join the San Francisco City Insider's tour. Admire the city’s impressive architecture and equally impressive hills, as you see its top attractions.
The half-day sightseeing tour is led by a friendly local guide, who will ensure that you see both the famous and the not-so-famous delights of San Francisco.
You’ll have around 4-5 hours to visit the most interesting locations in San Francisco, traveling in a small and intimate tour vehicle. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a fun and comprehensive sightseeing tour without the crowds.
Marvel at the views of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, ride through bustling Chinatown, take in the extraordinary panorama from Twin Peaks, and drive down Lombard Street. For a bit of culture, visit the Palace of Fine Arts, and learn about the famous Beat generation in North Beach.
The possibilities are endless! The tour can be customized, so if you have any places you’d really like to visit, just let your tour guide know.
