Did this on my 21st birthday and it was incredible. San Francisco looks amazing from above and as it was a bit foggy we got to fly under the Golden Gate Bridge rather then over it which was amazing!

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

We were dropped off at the Hilton in central San Fran but collected from near the wharf so I'd imagine if its not far off route they would be fine with it.
