Experience the best of San Francisco with this 2 day combo package.  You'll see the Bay City's most famous neighborhoods, visit Muir Woods National Monument and tour the world-famous Alcatraz Island and prison. 

On Day 1, take a small group minibus tour led by local guides with intimate knowledge and unmatched enthusiasm for their home city.  The air-conditioned minibusus have large windows for full view of the city, with plenty of standing room and seating for everyone.  You'll stop several times with lots of photo opportunities.  Highlights include Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach, Chinatown, City Hall, the Mission District, Castro, Twin Peaks, Haight Ashbury, Pacific Heights, the Presidio, Golden Gate Bridge and more!  Following the city tour, you'll enjoy free time in Sausalito. 

Afterwards, you'll travel via minibus to Muir Woods National Monument, one of the oldest and last living coastal redwood forests in the world.  You'll have over 75 minutes to enjoy this incredible monument.  Considered by many to be the highlight of their entire trip, this breathtaking redwood forest is sure to leave you with memories that last a lifetime!  Your guides will handle the details and the hassle of making all the reservations to access the site and trails ($15 admission fee to Muir Woods not included, payable on the day of the tour).

On Day 2, you'll enjoy a morning tour of Alcatraz.  There are many tours that circle around the island and show you the highlights, but this official tour takes you directly onto the island and includes an amazing self-guided audio tour of the prison cellhouse.  Tickets for Alcatraz are in high demand and often sell out well in advance, so be sure to book early!

If you'd like to take the Alcatraz tour on Day 1, followed by the city bus tour on Day 2, please order Alcatraz plus Famous San Francisco Minibus Tour and Muir Woods Shuttle - 2 Days - January & February.

Please Note:  This is a multi-day tour.  The city bus tour with Muir Woods shuttle takes place on the date you enter for your reservation, and you will tour Alcatraz on the following day.
