Full description
Set off on a scenic bay cruise around San Francisco Bay in the morning, followed by a half-day excursion to California's wine country. Benefit from the convenience of a full-day combo tour. Begin in the morning with a sail around San Francisco; marvel at the city skyline, views of Alcatraz Island, and a new perspective of the Golden Gate Bridge from below. Discover the city's colorful history and world-famous landmarks with personal headphone audio in 16 languages. 

On the cruise, you may also experience up-close wildlife encounters including seagulls, pelicans, and sea lions, or maybe even harbor porpoises and whales. Then, take a break for lunch in Fisherman's Wharf. Treat yourself to a delicious clam chowder sourdough bowl or a world-famous crab dish. Next, enjoy a scenic drive over the Golden Gate Bridge and through the beautiful seaside town of Sausalito, a Mediterranean-like village famous for its sweeping views of the Bay. 

As the vine-covered hillsides come into view, you'll visit two popular wineries for wine tastings and an exclusive estate tour at Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards, Madonna Estate, or Jacuzzi Family Winery. Get to know the inner workings of the wineries and their family history in Napa and Sonoma Valley, as an expert host walks you through the fermentation, barrel aging, and bottling processes. At each winery, taste three to five of the award-winning varietals.
