3 nights independent tour
Price from: £399pp
San Francisco 3 nights
Day 1 San Francisco: On arrival make your own way to your hotel.
Day 2 San Francisco: To assist with your sightseeing, you’ll receive a 48 hour pass for a hop-on-hop-off sightseeing tour, which allows you to explore the city at your own pace and not miss a thing. Sights you’ll most definitely want to see are Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square, Chinatown, Lombard Street, the seals at Pier 39 and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
Day 3 San Francisco: No visit to this great city would be complete without a visit to infamous Alcatraz and your hop-on-hop-off ticket includes ferry tickets to the ‘Rock’ for an audio walking tour of the prison, once home to some of America’s most notorious criminals, including Al ‘Scarface’ Capone. It’s a fascinating experience to hear the first hand accounts and imagine inhabiting one of the tiny cells. Be sure that you’re back in time for the included guided bike tour which begins at 3pm and follows a route past piers, through Chrissy Field and longside Fort Point to the city’s gem - the Golden Gate Bridge. Pedal over the bridge then return and ride “the road less travelled” to San Francisco’s must-see monuments.
Day 4 San Francisco: Time for last minute sightseeing or shopping. If you haven’t already done so, why not wander around Chinatown, see the seals at Pier 39, ride on a cable car or watch the traffic weave along crooked Lombard Street or, head to one of the most photographed locations in San Francisco, Alamo Square, a visual treat of Victorian houses backdropped by downtown skyscrapers. Later, independently transfer back to the airport for your onward journey. Alternatively, why not extend your stay and explore more of California?
