Nicknamed The City by the Bay, San Francisco is a must when visiting western USA. It’s packed with highlights from the towering Golden Gate, infamous Alcatraz, stunning parks and much much more! We have included a trip to Alcatraz where you can learn all about the prison first hand with an audio tour, recorded by a former prisoner who spent many years here. Once you’ve explored the cells and the island, you’ll head back to the mainland by boat. You will have plenty of time to take in everything that this enchanting city has to offer.

Arrival in San Francisco

Once you arrive in San Francisco, you’ll transfer to your hotel located in the downtown district. You’re a stone’s throw away from Union Square, Chinatown and the cable cars, which we recommend visiting once you have found your feet. The city is bustling and it’s easy to immerse yourself with the friendly locals at hand. Why not find a spot for dinner when you can take in the incredible views of the golden gate bridge.

Visit to Alcatraz

No trip to San Francisco is complete without visiting the infamous Alcatraz. Your tickets have been included and you can choose a free walking tour or to learn firsthand with an audio tour. The Audio tour is from a prisoner who will take you on a tour of his life inside the prison gates. Once you’ve explored the cells and the island, you’ll head back to the mainland by boat.

Visit to Alcatraz

The rest of the day is free for you to take in the rest of San Francisco. We’ve made sure you have enough time to take a walk through the huge Golden Gate Park or perhaps a cruise across the vast bay. Whether you choose to explore on foot or tackle the winding roads by bike you won’t be disappointed as this city has it all.
