Explore some of San Francisco's most vibrant areas with a local guide! From North Beach to Fisherman’s Wharf, this 3-hour walking tour (paired with an hour-long cruise) uncovers the city’s history, its hidden gems, and some of its most iconic attractions!
For many, the beating heart of San Francisco is the legacies that lie within the generations of people - artists and activists, inventors, and survivors. Follow along on a dive into the city’s artistic roots starting from Jack Kerouac Alley. Move up Columbus Avenue - the main strip through the predominantly Italian neighborhood where your guide will uncover the hidden gems lying just beneath the usual hotspots.
Further North, climb two blocks to "The Crookedest Street in the World", before heading to the chocolate empire of Ghirardelli Square. Pause to savor a piece of chocolate (complimentary, of course), then wander on down to Fisherman's Wharf. Your guide will show you how to navigate the popular area before heading to Pier 39 to meet San Francisco’s resident sea lions.
You’ll round out the afternoon with a cruise across the bay, taking in some of the city’s best sights from the water. Your boat sails past the waterfront neighborhood of the Marina District, onto the Presidio, and travels under the Golden Gate Bridge. A loop of Alcatraz Island is a welcome addition to the hour-long jaunt - the closest you can get without Alcatraz tickets. Afterward, you’ll return to Pier 39 where you can spend the evening exploring the area for yourself.
