Take this guided walking tour and see the best that San Francisco has to offer! Visit the famous Fisherman’s Wharf, take in fantastic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, and visit Washington Square in North Beach. You’ll also see key attractions such as Lombard Street, Coit Tower, and have the option to visit the legendary Alcatraz Island. After your tour, receive a ticket to ride the famous San Francisco cable car and continue to explore the city on your own!

Join a small-group walking tour of Fisherman’s Wharf and North Beach in San Francisco. To begin the 2-hour tour, your local guide will first take you to a location with a fantastic view of the marina and the Golden Gate Bridge, where you’ll stop for a great photo opportunity. Then, explore Fisherman’s Wharf and continue to Lombard Street, known as one of the world’s most crooked streets.

Next, take a scenic walk towards North Beach. The best way to explore this San Francisco neighborhood is to take a walking tour. Here, see Washington Square and the Saints Peter and Paul Church. You’ll start to see why North Beach is known as the Italian neighborhood as you pass the numerous Italian restaurants and gelato shops.

Leaving North Beach, get the insider’s tour of the back alleys and all the secrets they have to offer. Your tour guide will show you a hidden staircase and path that winds its way up to Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill, where you’ll take in breathtaking 360-degree views of the city. End the tour at Levi’s Plaza, where your guide will provide you with a cable car ticket so that you can continue to explore San Francisco at your leisure.

Alcatraz Option
If you select the Alcatraz option, your tour guide will accompany you to the Alcatraz ferry landing after your walking tour for you to visit 'The Rock' – the former penitentiary famous for having housed such ruthless criminals as Al Capone (Scarface) and Machine Gun Kelly. Take the ferry to Alcatraz Island, one of San Francisco’s most popular attractions, and take the award-winning audio tour to learn about the famous escape from Alcatraz, the prison's notorious inmates and much more!
