What to expect

Enjoy fantastic views and photo ops at famous locations on this four-hour narrated tour of San Francisco. You'll see the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and admire a stunning 360-degree view of the city from Twin Peaks. As you move through Golden Gate Park, you'll pass seasonal flower displays, windmills overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and (if you're lucky) grazing bison! The tour will teach you about San Francisco's early settlements, from Native Americans to Spanish missionaries, and the era of the gold rush. Then, drive by iconic Victorian homes in the historic Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.

The city tour will end at the waterfront, where you'll board a boat at Pier 39 for the Escape the Rock cruise. The cruise provides an up-close look at the infamous prison island that has seen many unsuccessful escape attempts. You will circle the island twice to see it from all angles, along with the stunning city skyline. You may even catch some porpoises swimming by!

Please note this tour does not land on Alcatraz Island.
