What to expect

Day 1 - Alcatraz Island and Aquarium of the Bay:

Pick up your tickets at Pier 33 and board the ferry to Alcatraz to see amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island and the San Francisco city skyline from the north.

When you land on the island, you’ll be equipped with an audio tour titled “Doing Time”, in which you’ll hear interviews from former inmates and learn more history about Alcatraz. Learn the history of “The Rock” with a 3-hour tour of the island and prison.

Then, cross the bay and enter the Aquarium of the Bay, getting up close and personal with San Francisco's underwater neighbors! See over 20,000 live animals, ranging from 8-foot native seven-gill sharks, eels, rays and jellies, all of which can be found in the San Francisco Bay.

Day 2 - Yosemite National Park tour:

Yosemite is a magnificent wilderness a few hours’ drive from San Francisco and a must-see to complete your trip to Northern California.

6.15am – 7.10am: Pick up from select San Francisco hotels

7.00am – 10.00am: Heading east across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, you'll have great views of the San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz Island, Fisherman’s Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge. En route, you’ll cross through the Central Valley, the largest agricultural region in the United States and known for specialty fruits and nuts. You’ll make a stop at a local grocery store where you can pick up some local produce and grab lunch for later.

10.00am – 11.30am: Continuing into the mountains, you'll arrive in California Gold Country. Your guide will provide history, stories, and practical information as you enter Yosemite’s glaciated valley.

12.00pm: Here you'll stop for a photo at Tunnel View. At 4,500 feet above sea level, this viewpoint gives you a spectacular view looking east into the valley.

12.45pm: From the drop-off location, you’ll have approximately 3 hours of free time to explore the valley as you choose.

3.30pm: Regrouping again in the late afternoon, you’ll head back to San Francisco, stopping for a short break before arriving back in the city.

8.30pm – 9.00pm: Arrive back at your lodging
