In the afternoon, guests will embark on their tour of the San Francisco City. Your guide will show you the city from a local’s perspective, taking you to hidden spots that you wouldn’t normally see on a big bus tour. Of course, you’ll also make photo stops at iconic landmarks and attractions such as Coit Tower, Union Square and Chinatown, and other places you request to see.

If option selected, on the following day after touring San Francisco, take a ferry to Sausalito, a beautiful, charming town on San Francisco Bay that stretches into the wooded hillsides. Sausalito is full of unique boutique shops and galleries showcasing artwork from local artists. Once your finished touring Sausalito, hop on the ferry back to San Francisco.

If you are looking to just cruise along the San Francisco Bay, select the Bay Cruise option offering incredible views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the stunning San Francisco skyline.
