In the morning, make your own way to Pier 33. Your Alcatraz and San Francisco tour starts with a ferry ride to Alcatraz. Upon arrival get a brief orientation on the maximum-security facility from a park ranger and pick up your self-guided audio tour. Listen to commentary from former staff and inmates as you explore the cellblocks.
When your audio tour concludes, hop back on the ferry to Pier 33.
Next, head toward your designated meeting spot on Post Street for a tour of San Francisco. Hop aboard an air-conditioned coach and cruise along the city’s waterfront, taking in views of Alcatraz and the San Francisco Bay on your way to the Golden Gate Bridge (weather permitting).
Spend the morning visiting the historic Palace of Fine Arts, a monumental structure from the 1915 World’s Fair; stop for pictures at the panoramic viewpoint on Twin Peaks; and explore neighborhoods including North Beach, Chinatown, the Presidio, and Fisherman’s Wharf.
Your tour ends back on Post Street.
