Get two exciting San Francisco experiences in one convenient half-day excursion. Perfect for travelers short on time, this small-group combo tour includes hotel pickup. Hit the streets for an urban safari to landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge and Twin Peaks, then switch gears—and modes of transportation—and cruise to the notorious prison island of Alcatraz for a self-guided audio tour.
What to Expect
A custom-made safari-style truck with open-air seating picks you up at your San Francisco hotel. You’ll then travel through the city on an urban adventure visiting landmarks like the iconic Art Deco Golden Gate Bridge, Sutro Tower, and the history-rich Golden Gate Park. Along the way, listen to insightful and amusing commentary from your guide while getting a sense of the character of the city’s diverse neighborhoods.

Then, catch a ferry from Pier 33 to Alcatraz. During the 15-minute cruise, see the city skyline and Fisherman’s Wharf from the water. On the island, spend as much time as you like (budget about 2.5 hours) exploring the former federal prison known as The Rock at your own speed with an audio tour. When you’re ready to return to the city, take one of the ferries that leaves every 30 to 40 minutes.

Great intro to SF

Eric provided an outstanding introduction to the vibrancy of SF and it’s history. His personal knowledge and warmth presentation made the morning educational and exciting. With the added extension of Alcatraz the day was well spent.
