With this two-day package, visit Alcatraz Island, see the redwood trees at Muir Woods National Monument, and enjoy a comprehensive city tour of San Francisco’s top sights.
Part One: The first day of your 3-in-1 sightseeing package begins by venturing over the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods National Monument, an isolated canyon north of the city that’s home to a grove of coastal redwood trees. Enjoy the tranquil, shady atmosphere as you stroll among 1,000-year-old trees that tower 260 feet (79 meters) tall. Depending on the conditions, you may experience Northern California’s signature fog while you wander in and out of the Mother Nature’s redwood alleyways.
On your way back to San Francisco, enjoy a drive through the seaside town of Sausalito, a Mediterranean-like village that sits across from the city on San Francisco Bay, known for its sophistication, boutiques, and waterfront eateries.
After exploring Muir Woods, enjoy all of the famous San Francisco attractions and landmarks from an open-top double decker bus! Learn about the City’s fascinating history from live guides or your own audio headset. The hop-on, hop-off tour allows you to jump off at 17 different stops which interest you most.
Part Two: Known as the Rock, Alcatraz Island is just a 30-minute ferry ride across the bay from the Embarcadero. Now operated by the National Park Service, the island prison was once home to such notorious inmates as Al ‘Scarface’ Capone and the ‘Birdman’ Robert Stroud. When you arrive on the island, grab an included headset for the 45-minute Cell house Audio Tour, which guides you through the cell block, cafeteria, and other areas as you listen to stories from the inmates themselves, as well as other residents of the island. You can step inside a prison cell to get a feel for what it was like to be incarcerated there, and enjoy views of the bay, Angel Island, and the San Francisco waterfront.
Your Alcatraz tour is self-guided; when you’re finished, you may return to the city on whichever ferry you wish.
