Day 2: In San Francisco • Guided City Tour of San Francisco • Visit Sausalito • Bay Cruise
Today proceed on a guided city tour of San Francisco with a walk on Lombard Street, the most crooked street in U.S.A. Then drive past the Civic Centre. Stop for a photograph at the Twin Peaks from where you can view the Golden Gate Bridge, painted an 'International Orange'. Later, drive to San Francisco's most popular destination, the Fisherman's Wharf through Ghirardelli Square known for its historic waterfront and considered the city's most popular tourist destination. Spend a dollar or two at Pier 39, a festival marketplace with more than 110 stores and numerous fun-filled attractions.
Later we visit Sausalito, a picturesque town nestled within a small harbour in Richardson Bay. Boutique shops, trendy restaurants, and quaint hotels dot the city's main street as it stretches along the curvature of a coastline dominated by sweeping panoramas reaching across the way to San Francisco.
Enjoy a cruise on San Francisco's famous bay. The Bay Cruise is one of the must-do's in San Francisco. After boarding the boat tour at Pier 39 in Fisherman's Wharf, on your right will be the famous San Francisco sea lions. Heading West towards the Pacific Ocean, there are incredible views back towards San Francisco, first of Fisherman's Wharf and Aquatic Park, and then Fort Mason, Marina District, Pacific Heights, Crissy Fields and the Presidio. The highlight is cruising underneath the Golden Gate Bridge, an experience never to be forgotten. After views of the Pacific Ocean, Baker Beach, Seacliff and Marin County, we head back towards Alcatraz, completing a full circle of the famous prison, followed by some excellent views of the Bay Bridge, San Francisco Downtown, and the San Francisco Hills.
