Full description
Meet outside Fisherman’s Wharf at your chosen tour time. After a brief roll call, you’ll board the bus and travel to your first stop. Over the next 7 hours you’ll be treated to stories about the neighborhoods, diversity and geography of the area. You will exit the bus at several stops for photo opportunities and exploration, enjoying lunch in Sausalito and then spending over an hour in the beautiful Muir Woods National Monument.

In the afternoon you will be dropped off at Pier 33 for the official Alcatraz audio tour, returning to Pier 33 at approximately 6:00 PM. This is where the tour will officially end.

Here are the places you will explore (photo stops noted by *):
