What to Expect

Experience the best of San Francisco on an afternoon packed with must-see sites. Featuring the Official Alcatraz tour in the early afternoon, hear some fascinating stories of 'The Rock' before embarking on a guided exploration of the city's highlights and learning all about its distinctive neighbourhoods.


Once a notorious prison fortress, Alcatraz Island (aka 'The Rock') is now a National Recreation Area. Collect your Official Alcatraz tickets 30 minutes prior to departure from the Prepaid Ticket Booth at Pier 33 to start your historic tour. Each person in your party over 18 years must have a Government-issued photo ID to board the ferry (passport or local country driver's license is recommended). Including a ferry and audio tour, spend the next 90 minutes discovering the history, beauty and infamy of the island as they shed new light on an abundance of fascinating stories still locked away.


After your tour of 'The Rock', meet your passionate local guide at Pier 33 to uncover San Francisco's magnetic charm and culture. During your tour of the city, be treated to stories of San Fran's unique neighbourhoods, learning the history, culture and architecture behind the views, and stop for many Instagram-worthy photo opportunities along the way. From our Fort Point stop, marvel at the gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge. 


Explore the famous Fisherman's Wharf, from beautiful old shipyards to Boudin's Bakery and the smell of fresh clam chowder, and see where the movie 'Mrs. Doubtfire' was filmed. Visit the home of the hippie movement, Billionaire's Row, the largest Chinatown outside of Asia, and take a moment to admire the picture-perfect Painted Ladies.


Learn all the best restaurant stops and at the conclusion of your tour at Fisherman's Wharf, you can make the most of this beautiful city with the rest of the evening ahead of you.
