Explore San Francisco in one day on a small-group tour of Alcatraz Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, Land’s End, the Palace of Fine Arts, Golden Gate Park, and a long list of famous neighborhoods. Coordinated transport and tickets mean you can cover far more ground than you could on your own, with guaranteed ferry tickets to Alcatraz Island—a popular attraction that often sells out.

On this excursion it is a matter of being well organized. It was a great experience to visit Alcatraz; it was awesome . The city tour was good. We went to many places, but we didn't go to Downtown. I recommend it for the family.
