  • See some of the city's most vibrant and colorful districts like Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf
  • Finish off your sightseeing adventure with a ferry ride to the history-packed Alcatraz Island

This ticket will whisk you around the city of San Francisco for a sightseeing odyssey in an air-conditioned motorcoach, before taking you on a cruise across the San Francisco Bay to the infamous Alcatraz Island. Wander around the eerie former prison with an engrossing audio guide, and hear stories from former inmates, would-be escapees, prison guards, and more.

Hop aboard a comfy air-conditioned sightseeing coach at San Francisco's famous Fisherman's Wharf, and wave to the lumbering sea lions as you set off on an adventure across the hilly Northern California metropolis.

Drive through a colorful collection of San Francisco's most picturesque neighborhoods, rugged coastal scenery, and distinct districts like Chinatown, Union Square, Cliff House/Ocean Beach, Fisherman's Wharf.

You can hop out to stretch your legs and take some photos at iconic locations such as Civic San Francisco City Hall, Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Twin Peaks (weather permitting).

After snapping the appropriate amount of Golden Gate Bridge selfies and posing with daisy chain necklaces at Golden Gate Park, it's time for a healthy dose of dark tourism! Board a ferry and whirr across the Bay for a brief stint at the one and only Alcatraz Island.

With waves crashing, birds circling, and sharks patrolling unseen, you know you're in for an atmospheric experience! A 45-minute Cell House audio tour will immerse you in the dark history of Alcatraz, the gripping stories of audacious breakout attempts, and the daily grind behind bars at Al Capone's former home.
