Up for a visit to the famous Alcatraz prison? And a bike tour through the main neighborhoods of San Francisco? Great, because this combo tour will allow you to do both!
San Francisco Bike Tour + Alcatraz
At the selected time, you must go to Pier 33 in San Francisco, where the boat will be waiting to take you to Alcatraz Island.
After a 15-minute cruise, you'll have two and a half hours of free time to tour this former prison where Al Capone himself was incarcerated. During the visit, you'll enjoy an audio guide in English to discover the history of this prison also known as The Rock.
Paranormal events, deaths, and an infamous escape are part of the past of Alcatraz, which was active between 1934 and 1963. You'll discover all the details as you walk through its courtyards, cells, and wards - it'll give you goosebumps!
After the visit, you will hop back on the boat and return to Pier 33.
San Francisco Bike Tour
Do you want to enjoy San Francisco in a different way? At 11 am we'll meet at Taylor Street and we'll give you the electric bikes to start getting to know this beautiful city while we do some exercise.
The bike ride, 25 kilometers (15 miles), will take us about four hours. We'll first bike through the North Beach neighborhood, famous for being home to San Francisco's Little Italy. We'll look back at how the Italian colonies settled in this area of the city while taking in iconic landmarks such as St. Peter and Paul's Church and the Coit Tower.
We'll then walk through the Design District and Mission District neighborhoods to admire the facade of Mission San Francisco de Asis, one of the oldest buildings in the city, built by the Spanish in 1776.
The progressive culture of the Castro neighborhood, the hippie atmosphere of Haight Ashbury, the Victorian houses of Alamo Square, and the government buildings of Civic Center will also be featured on our tour. Also, we'll cross the legendary Golden Gate Bridge to visit Sausalito, an area full of green spaces.
Lastly, we'll finish the bike tour at 3 pm, leaving the bikes at the starting point.
