What You Can Expect
Next, take a scenic walk towards North Beach. The best way to explore this San Francisco neighborhood is to take a walking tour. Here, see Washington Square and the Saints Peter and Paul Church. You’ll start to see why North Beach is known as the Italian neighborhood as you pass the numerous Italian restaurants and gelato shops.
Leaving North Beach, get the insider’s tour of the back alleys and all the secrets they have to offer. Your tour guide will show you a hidden staircase and path that winds its way up to Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill, where you’ll take in breathtaking 360-degree views of the city. End the tour at Levi’s Plaza, where your guide will provide you with a cable car ticket so that you can continue to explore San Francisco at your leisure.
If you select the Alcatraz option, your tour guide will accompany you to the Alcatraz ferry landing after your walking tour for you to visit 'The Rock' – the former penitentiary famous for having housed such ruthless criminals as Al Capone (Scarface) and Machine Gun Kelly. Take the ferry to Alcatraz Island, one of San Francisco’s most popular attractions, and take the award-winning audio tour to learn about the famous escape from Alcatraz, the prison's notorious inmates and much more!
Just what we wanted...to learn the background of what we were seeing. Enjoyed the history and sites. Thanks.
What a fantastic start to our holiday in San Francisco. We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour, learnt a lot about the area and got a feel for the place on Day One of our trip. Don, our tour guide was excellent. Having lived all his life in this lovely city he was extremely knowledgeable and gave some great tips of places to eat and visit whilst we were in the area. Brilliant and highly recommended.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. We learned tons of history on San Francisco. I would recommend having atour guide for part of your trip, then go out exploring on your own.
Don, our tour guide was fantastic!! We saw and learned so much about the San Francisco Bay area
Would absolutely do this tour again and highly recommend it. Well worth the time and money
This was a fun tour - we did it our 1st day in town to get a feel for the place. My mum and I were the only two people on the tour so that made it even better - a private tour at no extra cost. The guide knows and loves her city which is always so impotent and you get to see nooks and crannies that a normal tourist would never know about or simply walk past without knowing. Definitely a worthwhile tour if you want to ht the ground and get a feel for this great tangible city.
The tour guide was great! Knew the history very well and was very friendly.
Made you feel at home away from home.
Very good tour guide. Gave alot of history and details of the city. would do it again.
We had fun with uor tour guide. She answered our questions and was very knowledgeable of San Francisco. Although we walked a lot, still we had fun. We would likely do it again! Thanks!
It was awesome! We had the best tour guide, she was knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. Would do it again or make sure to tell my friends, if they ever go to San Francisco to take the tour. Well worth the money.
Tour guide, thankfully had a sense of humor and was very knowledgeable in her surroundings.
