Three Day Itinerary for
San Francisco County​


Arrive at San Francisco International Airport and transfer to downtown
(approximately 14 miles; 30 minutes away).

Depart for a three-hour deluxe “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” city tour
including a visit to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Seafood dinner at one of many restaurants along the waterfront or at one of
the trendy restaurants in the SoMa (South of Market) area! After dinner,
enjoy a musical show, an American Conservatory Theater performance or a
comedy club, and a nightcap in one of the many rooftop cocktail lounges.


Take a tour to Muir Woods, a forest of giant California redwood
trees - some of the biggest trees in the world. On the way back,
stop for lunch and shopping in the beautiful little town of
Sausalito. Return to San Francisco by ferry or by bus; or take a
walking tour of Chinatown with a dim sum lunch.

Free afternoon to shop! Explore Union Square's department stores,
small boutiques and art galleries; visit the neighborhood shopping
areas South of Market or Union Street; take a five-minute walk from
downtown to the Embarcadero Center, a three-level, four-building
complex of 150 shops.

Dinner cruise on San Francisco Bay. Enjoy dinner and dancing to a live band
as you cruise past The City's famous skyline at sunset.


Enjoy a quick 10-minute ferry ride to the center of the San Francisco harbor
to the infamous former prison island - Alcatraz. The visit includes an taped
tour of the prison (once home to such famous criminals as gangster Al Capone
and Machine Gun Kelly).

Upon returning to Fisherman's Wharf, have a lunch of San Francisco
specialties such as cracked crab and sour dough bread. After lunch, shop at
the many complexes in the Wharf area such as PIER 39, Ghirardelli Square
and The Cannery and enjoy the musicians and street performers. Take a jeep
tour of the area, or rent a bike and ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to
Sausalito and ferry back to San Francisco.

San Francisco has over 3,000 restaurants! Take your choice: For instance, an
authentic Chinese banquet in Chinatown - the largest Asian settlement
outside of mainland China, an elaborate Korean barbecue or an Italian feast
in The City's Italian section, called “North Beach”
