Overview
Visit the former prison cells of Alcatraz Island and then motor through San Francisco streets in your very own GPS-guided GoCar. This combo experience includes a ferry ride across the bay for an award-winning audio tour of the notorious penitentiary. You'll also receive a fabulous lunch from Get Fresh SF where you'll have your choice of a sandwich, wrap, or Asian bowl. On the same day or another day, take a 2-hour drive in your private GoCar, preloaded with more than 50 must-see attractions and landmarks including the Presidio, Crissy Field, Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park and Lombard Street — the crookedest street in the world!
What to Expect
Make your own way to Fisherman's Wharf, then board the ferry and ride across San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz Island for a 45-minute self-guided audio tour of the former prison grounds. There is no restriction on the amount of time you spend on the island; simply re-board the ferry whenever you wish to return to Fisherman's Wharf (departs every 30 minutes).

Once back on mainland, re-energize with a wonderful lunch made by Get Fresh SF including a sandwich, wrap or Asian bowl of your choice, chips, fresh fruit – and a drink or fresh fruit smoothie.

After lunch, let GoCar take you off the beaten path through many of San Francisco’s iconic parks like the Presidio and Crissy Field on the way to the Golden Gate Bridge and back. Snap some amazing photos along the Pacific Ocean and see the Golden Gate Bridge up close from above and below. You can even park and take a stroll along the span of the bridge if you choose. On the way back explore the boutique shopping districts of Chestnut and Union Street and fill the trunk with the latest fashions or stop for a bite to eat. Finish your tour where tour buses can’t go by winding your way up Russian Hill to take an exhilarating ride down the world’s most crooked street, Lombard Street.

The GoCar tour is approximately two hours drive time at a slow pace and has several fun, informative detours and stop options along the way. If you want to extend the tour you have the option of taking the Downtown/Chinatown loop at the end of the tour

Tour Highlights:
• Golden Gate Bridge
• Pacific Ocean
• Lombard Street
• Fisherman’s Wharf
• Crissy Field
• Fort Point
• The Legion of Honor
• Fort Mason
• The Marina
• The Presidio
• Palace of Fine Arts
• The Crooked Street
• Russian Hill

Above is only a suggested route. Your tour’s length may vary due to circumstances such as departure time and location, traffic and your itinerary. If you do take additional rental time, this will be billed in 1-minute increments at our retail rates. You may visit all or some of the tour’s highlights. If you are unsure of which tour to book, just book according to the amount of time you think you’d like to spend. We can customize a tour especially for you, with the sights you want to include, when you come into our shop.
