Dara is a fantastic tour guide. She showed us all around Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. She gave us a lot of information on the history of the city. She's friendly and knowledgeable.

It was a wonderful experience for the first time!!
See the inside of Alcatraz and learning history about the island itself.

Is there a lot of walking involved?

A mile of moderate walking is included in our tour of Fisherman’s Wharf. Please ask for a private tour if mobility is a concern.

What are our options in Sausalito?

There’s so much to do in this city across the bay if you choose our Sausalito upgrade. While strolling around the shoreline, admire the colorful houseboats. Take a break for lunch or go shopping in the stylish stores. Take the ferry back to Fisherman’s Wharf when you’re ready. Another excellent opportunity to photograph the bay and skyline is on the ferry ride. We recommend allowing two hours to explore Sausalito because the travel is around 25 minutes each way.

Is it possible to do both upgrades?

Sure! However, you should do them on different days. After your Fisherman’s Wharf tour, take a Golden Gate Bay Cruise or a ferry to Sausalito. Then put your ticket for the other upgrade aside for an other day. Don’t be afraid to ask your guide for advice on how to plan your trips.

Will we be able to see Alcatraz?

While your guide will talk about Alcatraz on the tour as we see it from afar, we recommend our Fisherman’s Wharf Walking Tour with Alcatraz Ticket if you want to visit the island and tour this famous monument.

What is the policy on rescheduling?

We are aware that plans can be altered. You have the option to change your tour up to 24 hours before to departure. Up to 24 hours prior to the commencement of your tour, you can get a full refund. We would have incurred hard expenditures within 24 hours of your excursion, so we are unable to enable free rescheduling or cancellation.

What if it starts to rain?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather, we will give you the option to reschedule or receive a full refund.

Are gratuities included in the price?

Tips are always welcome, but they are never expected. They’re an excellent way to express your gratitude and tell your guide that they did a fantastic job.
