What to expect

A comfortable bus tour and then cruise around the Bay for a close-up view of the infamous Alcatraz Island.

You’ll be able to enjoy fantastic views and photo stops at famous locations. You’ll see the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and admire a stunning 360-degree view of the city from Twin Peaks in Golden Gate Park. You’ll catch a glimpse of seasonal flower displays, windmills overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and (if you’re lucky) grazing bison! You’ll learn about the early settlers of the area and pass by the famous Victorian homes in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.

After your bus tour, you’ll hop aboard a boat for a cruise around San Francisco Bay, with close-up views of Alcatraz Island and its prison, also known as “The Rock”. You’ll learn about the many failed escape attempts and the prison’s chilling reputation. Despite the Island’s dark history, it is a beautiful part of the Bay and adds to the breathtaking San Francisco skyline, giving you a relaxing panorama at the end of the day.

Important Note: This cruise DOES NOT land on Alcatraz island.
