Full description

Take a guided walking tour through Fisherman’s Wharf, taste some classic San Francisco treats, and visit Alcatraz at night, the best time to experience the former high-security prison. Begin your experience in the afternoon near Ghirardelli Square and weave your way through Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39. Explore the lesser-known paths and see San Francisco's legendary cable cars. Nibble on fresh local bread and Ghirardelli chocolate as you watch the playful sea lions.

Sail to Alcatraz and enjoy the popular attraction with very few people, as tickets are extremely limited. Get a short introductory tour with a park range. Hear stories from former inmates, correctional officers, and the children that once called Alcatraz Island home.  Wander the island on your own time and spot the city's lights shimmering in the distance before returning to the ferry.
