This Alcatraz Island and San Francisco City Day Tour is for those that want to do more than see the City…they want to experience it! You will ride in comfort, walk the streets and float the bay as you visit the City’s top attractions PLUS experience why they call Alcatraz Island 'The Rock"!
Extranomical brings you exclusive experiences and attractions you won’t get on other San Francisco Alcatraz day tours. Your “insider” guide knows where and how to get the most from your San Francisco sightseeing adventure.
After a convenient pickup at most San Francisco hotels, we start this 1-day San Francisco Alcatraz day tour by exploring the city’s legendary waterfront, learning the stories of the Embarcadero, Levi’s Plaza and Fisherman's Wharf. We’ll even take a brief coffee break at the Ferry Building.
Then we make our way to Pier 33 where you’ll board the ferry to start your Alcatraz Island tour! Listen to an audio presentation featuring recordings of inmates and guards that worked and inhabited the island! Our San Francisco Alcatraz day tours give you some time to roam and explore this historic island prison.
After 2-3 hours on the “rock”, your day has only begun!! Take one of the late-morning ferries to San Francisco so you can join for the afternoon portion of your Alcatraz day tour.
Your afternoon “city insider's" tour is about to begin! After cruising along San Francisco’s waterfront and Marina District, we’ll visit the Palace of Fine Arts. That’s one gorgeous building. Then, the main event—a trip across the Golden Gate Bridge!
On this tour, you’ll also see the City’s rugged coastline. Pause to enjoy cliff-side views of “city by the bay”. Be blown away by the beauty of Golden Gate Park.
Our San Francisco one-day tour will take you through the culturally rich neighborhoods of San Francisco! You’ll learn about what made the Haight-Ashbury, Mission and Castro districts what they are and why they’re important to so many.
After a slow drive through Nob Hill and Chinatown, we'll visit the charming Italian neighborhood of North Beach. While there, we’ll point out Lombard Street, Coit Tower, Washington Square and more.
From start to finish on this San Francisco sightseeing highlights tour, you will laugh out loud at the surprising, sometimes crazy, things that have made San Francisco one of the world’s most beloved cities.
