Full description
Alcatraz Island is the #1 attraction in San Francisco. Don't miss out on the chance to see it! Taking the ferry to Alcatraz will afford you amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Alcatraz Island, and the San Francisco city skyline from the north. When you land on the island, you’ll get a short history of Alcatraz, and then head up into the prison. You’ll be equipped with an audio tour titled “Doing Time”, in which you’ll hear interviews from former inmates and learn more history about Alcatraz.

You may explore for as long as you want (the ferry departs for the mainland approximately every 30-40 minutes). The tour generally takes people about two and a half hours.

The next day, you'll go back in time while driving into the future for a day tour of Silicon Valley, California's technological epicenter! Want to see where it all began? You'll start the day with a visit to the world-famous Apple campus and then its off to the Computer History Museum where you'll get a chance to see some of the first mega-computers and commercially-produced machines. Next up, take a selfie at the Google Campus and shop at the company’s gift shop, then head over to Palo Alto for lunch and shopping at exclusive tech stores featuring kickstarter merchandise! In the afternoon, you can check-in at Facebook before “commuting” back to San Francisco.
