Day 1 San Francisco

Enjoy an easy pickup at (or nearby) to your hotel. Meet your know-it-all guide. Start your Bay In a Day with Alcatraz. We will drop you off at Pier 33 and you will board a ferry to Alcatraz Island. Your Alcatraz Tour begins with a 45 minute audio presentation "Doing Time: The Alcatraz Cellhouse Tour," featuring recordings of actual guards and inmates who lived and worked on the Island. Once your Alcatraz Audio Tour is finished, explore Alcatraz Island as long want on your own, but don't forget that you have to get the ferry back to San Francisco!

We will have time to grab some lunch along the waterfront after your Alcatraz tour is completed. Meet up at the Zephyr Hotel by 1:40 so we can re-board the vehicle for our afternoon exploring more San Francisco attractions.

In the late afternoon, enjoy a trip to the Palace of Fine Arts. After, we'll all journey across the grand Golden Gate Bridge, enter Golden Gate Park, see the Bison Paddock, enormous Dutch windmills and Spreckels Lake; arrive in Haight-Ashbury, see the Grateful Dead House, Jimi Hendrix Red House and Victorian homes that survived the fire of 1906. Pass through the storied Castro and its rainbow crosswalk and Mission districts. See the Mission Dolores. Catch views of awesome public buildings: SF City Hall, War Memorial Opera House, Pioneer Monument. Pass Nob Hill on our way to Union Square. There's a lot to see here! Grace Cathedral, the Fairmont and Mark Hopkins hotels and the Pacific Union Club. A close-up look at Chinatown. See North Beach, the Italian neighborhood of San Francisco. You will see Little Italy cafes, Washington Square Park, St. Peter & Paul Church, Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower. Jump off the tour here and have dinner if you like! Or continue on with your guide and get dropped off at your hotel.

I recommend this tour!

Posted by: Mark on 2018-02-21

This was one of the best tours I have been. The tour guide had so much knowledge about the history and the architecture of San Francisco and he made my tour so memorable by giving so much information about each and every tourist attraction in SF. I would highly recommend this 1 day tour, especially for those who don't want to miss the major tourist attractions and want to see all the beautiful places in 1 day.
