Ferry Ride & Admission to Alcatraz

Ferry Ride & Admission to Alcatraz

Alcatraz Island offers a close-up look at the site of the first lighthouse and US built fort on the West Coast, the infamous federal penitentiary long off-limits to the public, and the history making 18 month occupation by Indians of All Tribes. Rich in history, there is also a natural side to the Rock—gardens, tide pools, bird colonies, and bay views beyond compare.

Alcatraz is most famous for the 29 years it operated as a U.S. penitentiary. Learn how Alcatraz evolved from an army post that contained an army prison, into U.S. Penitentiary Alcatraz.

Alcatraz's fame due in no small part to Hollywood movies which have created their own not particurarily accurate Alcatraz, with underground tunnels and haunted dungeons - which are not based on reality. 
 

Visit Golden Gate Park

Visit Golden Gate Park

We’re proud to welcome more than 13 million visitors each year to Golden Gate Park, one of San Francisco’s greatest treasures. From a vast, windswept expanse of sand dunes, park engineer William Hammond Hall and master gardener John McLaren carved out an oasis–a verdant, horticulturally diverse, and picturesque public space where city dwellers can relax and reconnect with the natural world. The rest, as they say, is history.

Within Golden Gate Park’s 1,017 acres you’ll discover gardens, playgrounds, lakes, picnic groves, trails, and monuments, plus an array of cultural venues, events, and activities.

Japanese Tea Garden

Japanese Tea Garden

The Japanese Tea Garden provides visitors from around the world with an opportunity to experience the natural beauty, tranquility and harmony of a Japanese-style garden in the heart of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.   
Originally created as a “Japanese Village” exhibit for the 1894 California Midwinter International Exposition, the site originally spanned about one acre and showcased a Japanese style garden.  When the fair closed, Japanese landscape architect Makoto Hagiwara and superintendent John McLaren reached a gentleman’s agreement, allowing Mr. Hagiwara to create and maintain a permanent Japanese style garden as a gift for posterity.

Today, the Japanese Tea Garden endures as one of the most popular attractions in San Francisco, featuring classic elements such as an arched drum bridge, pagodas, stone lanterns, stepping stone paths, native Japanese plants, serene koi ponds and a zen garden.  Cherry blossom trees bloom throughout the garden in March and April.

Tour & Tasting at a Local Winery

Tour & Tasting at a Local Winery

Wine tasting in the Livermore Valley wine country is a must-do on many visitors' lists while in the San Francisco area. The laid-back and approachable atmosphere in the East Bay's Tri-Valley region, just 30 miles east of San Francisco, highlights the welcoming, warm, and relaxing experience of local California. With the first grapes planted in the 1840s, the region occupies a prominent position in California wine history.

With more than 55 wineries in close proximity to each other, it's easy to plot out stops and make a day of tasting, enjoying the weather, and seeing beautiful countryside. Here are just five of the many wineries in the Livermore area of the Tri-Valley in Northern California to explore.

Let our tour host help you choose a winery that best suits the needs of your group.

The Cable Car Museum

The Cable Car Museum

The Cable Car Museum was established in 1974. It is operated by the Friends of the Cable Car Museum as a nonprofit educational facility.

Located in the historic Washington/Mason cable car barn and powerhouse, the museum deck overlooks the huge engines and winding wheels that pull the cables. Downstairs is a viewing area of the large sheaves and cable line entering the building through the channel under the street.

On display are various mechanical devices such as grips, track, cable, brake mechanisms, tools, detailed models, and a large collection of historic photographs.

The museum houses three antique cable cars from the 1870s. The Sutter Street Railway No. 46 grip car & No. 54 trailer and the only surviving car from the first cable car company, the Clay Street Hill Railroad No. 8 grip car.
