Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour begins at Fisherman's Wharf, where you meet your local guide and board your minibus. Over the course of the day, you get a look at the city's diverse neighborhoods and geography, stopping at several locations to take beautiful photos and learn about the history of the city and current events through the eyes of a local.

You will travel through North Beach, also known as Little Italy, where sidewalk cafes line busy streets. You will get to see the markets and souvenir shops of Chinatown; visit the art and landmarks where the Summer of Love began in the Haight-Ashbury; see the 'Painted Ladies' victorians, known for their appearance in the 'Full House' intro; and get a glimpse of Pacific Heights, one of the city's most affluent neighborhoods where large homes have excellent views of San Francisco Bay (the house from 'Mrs. Doubtfire' is also here), among others.

The adventure then continues across the Golden Gate Bridge to the picturesque enclave of Sausalito for a lunch break, before heading to Muir Woods National Monument, where you have an hour to stroll through the majestic forest of ancient redwood trees.

Your tour ends with return to your starting point at Fisherman's Wharf.

Just a great trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. We learned a lot about the city and saw things we wouldn’t have seen. Our guides name escapes me and that’s a bummer. (He was super tall)
