What to expect

Alcatraz Island is the #1 attraction in San Francisco, and you can see even more on your day tour of "The Rock," followed by a full-day learning the history and future of tech in Silicon Valley!

Day 1 - Alcatraz day tour:

Take the ferry to Alcatraz and see amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Alcatraz 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 ferry and audio tour of the island and prison.

Day 2 Silicon Valley tech tour:

The next morning, get ready to see where it all began! An Incredible Adventures guide will take you back in time and drive you into the future on this educational tech tour of Silicon Valley.

You'll start the day with a visit to the Computer History Museum: see some of the first mega-computers and commercially-produced machines, as well as classics like Pac Man and Atari to stir up some childhood memories.

Visit the Google Campus/gift shop and check-in at Facebook, and head over to the newly-built Apple visitor’s center for an interactive exhibit of the new campus, and opportunity to test out the newest gadgets.

Then, grab some lunch in Palo Alto before heading back to San Francisco!
