What You Can Expect

Walking Tour of Fisherman's Wharf and North Beach with Cable Car Ride and optional Alcatraz Ticket

Cable Car

Discover the northeast corner of San Francisco on this guided walking tour of two top city neighborhoods. Starting at Fisherman’s Wharf, meet your guide and head to a spot that provides great views of the harbor, San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Stroll through the bustling wharf area, lined with crab stands and street performers, and on to Russian Hill, where you’ll stop for a photo op of Lombard Street, the famed ‘crooked’ street that slopes down a steep incline.

Continue walking to North Beach, sometimes known as Little Italy, where your guide will lead you past Washington Square Park and Saints Peter and Paul Church. See the neighborhood’s many Italian restaurants and cafes, and then follow your guide to some secret alleys and staircases that many visitors miss. Climb up Telegraph Hill to Coit Tower, where you can enjoy a spectacular view of the city and bay, and then walk down to Levi’s Plaza, where your tour ends and your guide will hand over your cable car ticket, which you can use to explore more of the area on your own.

Optional Alcatraz Upgrade:
If you choose the Alcatraz option when booking, you will visit Alcatraz in the morning and meet your walking tour guide at 2:30pm. Enjoy more views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city skyline during the boat ride, and when you arrive on ‘The Rock,’ begin your independent tour of this former prison. Put on the provided headset for a self-guided audio tour of the cell block, which was once home to legendary criminals like Machine Gun Kelly and Al Capone. Listen to commentary from inmates and staff, and then take the ferry back to San Francisco when you’re ready to leave. They depart every 30 to 40 minutes.
