What you can expect

Get an insider’s view of SF's eclectic city centre areas! Experience it the way a local would: by foot, muni and cable car! Meet your guide at the north end of Fisherman's Wharf and start your day by taking in the amazing views of the bay, Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Hear how SF transformed from a sleepy village to a booming port city when gold fever swept the nation in 1849. Stroll along the fog lined waterfront and drool over the stalls selling crab and clam chowder in sourdough bread bowls. See Pier 39 to admire historic ships and be awestruck by the colony of sea lions that have taken over its docks. At Pier 33 learn about the history of Alcatraz Island. Next is North Beach to soak in the aromas from the bakeries and restaurants that line the streets. Hear about the Italian families who immigrated here and built powerful banking and seafood empires. Experience first-hand the inspiration that many writers felt, such as Jack Kerouac and Francis Ford Coppola, while sipping on espresso in a caffe. Turn the corner and walk down a small alley and get transported to Chinatown. This densely populated area with its colourful facades, temples and dragon gate, has an interesting history that you will learn about along the way. Take in the sights and sounds while we stroll down the vibrant streets and into the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company where you can make your own custom cookies! Next up is a short walk through the financial district to the ferry building marketplace for lunch. Enjoy a leisurely meal and rest after all that walking and get ready for part 2! San Francisco has a world class public transport system that will get you anywhere in the city if you know what you're doing. Your guide will give you an orientation when we get on the muni for a brief ride to the centre of the city's main shopping district, Union Square. Come see where Tony Bennett really left his heart before we board a cable car for a ride to the crookedest street, Lombard, and finally conclude our iconic SF Highlights Tour!
