Experience the best of San Francisco on this small group tour. See the Golden Gate Bridge and Twin Peaks. Roll through North Beach, Pacific Heights, Haight-Ashbury, Castro, and the Embarcadero. Visit Alcatraz and learn more about the infamous prison.


  • Discover the city's hidden gems and diverse neighborhoods
  • Hear entertaining and informative commentary from a professional guide
  • Take a ferry ride to Alcatraz Island and view the Golden Gate Bridge


Enjoy having an itinerary that is open with no two tours being exactly the same, but with standard stops at classic landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge and Twin Peaks. Leave big buses behind and explore places like street-art alleys in Mission, mosaic stairways in Sunset, the laid-back vibe of Presidio, the Beaux-Arts City Hall, or the famous “Painted Ladies” at Alamo Square. Stop at a local market to have a nice lunch and do some people watching. End the tour at the Alcatraz ferry landing. Take your ferry tickets to 'the Rock' and explore the island at your leisure before returning by ferry to the city.
