It also both the oldest surviving mission in California and the oldest intact building in San Francisco.

After seeing the beginnings of the city, you’ll climb one of San Francisco’s legendary hills and get panoramic views from the top of Twin Peaks. Along the way you’ll pass the Victorian houses known as “The Painted Ladies” and spot cable cars making their rounds of the city.

After about 20 minutes in the park, you’ll re-board the bus and drive west to the Presidio before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.
