San Francisco is known for having a culture all its own, marching to the beat of its own drum. For visitors, its famous neighborhoods, attractions, and landmarks offer an ideal opportunity to explore the city's history and dive into its culture head first. Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, Fisherman's Wharf, and the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood are all popular destinations at the core of the San Francisco experience. The city is also known for its amazing food-taking fresh, local ingredients and preparing them in surprising and delicious ways at the cutting edge of culinary experimentation. You'll also find incredible music within the city, ranging in tenor from their stunning symphony and opera to rock and roll playing in local pubs. For our stay, we'll set up shop at the San Francisco Marriot Fisherman's Wharf.

Guided Tour of San Francisco
Monday, August 27, 2018
2:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. | $75.00
There is no better way to discover San Francisco than the Great Pacific City Tour. Our guide will make the city come alive while showing you all San Francisco has to offer. We'll visit Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown's unique and wonderful shops (both on the
main streets and along the little alleys), and Nob Hill, where the railroad barons built their mansions. We'll also experience "painted ladies" (beautiful Victorian homes), North Beach, exotic cabarets, coffee houses where the beat generation met, and wonderful Italian food and pastries. Look forward to Haight Ashbury, the focal point of the Summer of Love. Then there's the Financial District, home of the Pacific Stock Exchange, and Pacific Heights, where millionaires' mansions gaze in haughty splendor out over the Bay. Of course, there's Golden Gate Park--one of America's largest urban parks. And as if that weren't enough, there's the Civic Center, the Presidio, the Pacific Ocean, the Golden Gate Bridge, and so much more!
Price includes guided city tour, taxes, and gratuity.
