Summary of The Day: Today, discover the best attractions in San Francisco!
To begin, head to Pier 33 at Embarcedero Street to join the Alcatraz ferry ride. You can use local public transportation to reach here, either with the F Streetcar or Bart-Embarcadero Station.
The ferry ride from San Francisco to the island takes approximately 10-15 minutes. Once you arrive on the island, a brief presentation of the island's history and guide to touring the prison is given. An audio tour is provided on entrance of the cell house that gives a recorded commentary from former inmates, prison guards and prison wardens. It takes roughly between 2 and 2 1/2 hours to do the full tour and just enough time to grab a souvenir. The ferry leaves roughly every thirty minutes. Learn interesting facts about the island, such as that Alcatraz was not only used as a prison but also as a harbor defense fort during the civil war and before then, was America's first lighthouse on the West Coast. Experience the beauty, history and infamy of Alcatraz Island on the San Francisco Bay.
Afterwards, you'll head back to the mainland and join the walking tour at 2:30pm at the Buena Vista Cafe in Fisherman's Wharf at 2765 Hyde Street, San Francisco, CA 94109.
During this tour, you will explore the Fisherman's Wharf neighborhood of San Francisco. You will get an exclusive insider excursion and get the chance to take amazing photos of Lombard Street, Telegraph Hill, Coit Tower, and much more!
