San Francisco Bay in a Day Experience

This comprehensive San Francisco city guided tour explores all the top attractions of the city including your choice of either Alcatraz Island prison or the Coast Redwoods of Muir Woods.

Your “city insider” guide knows where to go so you get the most from your visit to San Francisco. Don't just sit on the dock of the bay—see all of San Francisco’s attractions like The Embarcadero. Fisherman’s Wharf. Pier 39. Coit Tower. Financial District. Palace of Fine Arts. Chinatown. Nob Hill. The Castro and Mission districts. And the not-to-be-missed Golden Gate Bridge. (Make sure you have enough memory for all those selfies!)

To complete this San Francisco city tour, you’ll head out to explore the city’s majestic parks, rugged coastline and diverse neighborhoods. Enjoy historic Presidio. Pause to enjoy cliff-side views of “city by the bay”. Be blown away by the beauty of Golden Gate Park.

What made the Haight-Ashbury, Mission and Castro districts what they are today? Learn the stories. Laugh out loud at the surprising, sometimes crazy, things that have made San Francisco one of the world’s most beloved cities.

Extranomical brings you exclusive experiences and attraction entries you won’t get on other San Francisco city tours. Enjoy a less-well-traveled spot for admiring the Golden Gate Bridge.

Get a good night’s sleep! Including the morning excursion to Alcatraz or Muir Woods, this San Francisco city tour goes from dawn ‘til dusk. Why go home without seeing it all?

Note that traffic in San Francisco can be tricky. But don’t worry: We’ll tweak the itinerary as needed to give you the best possible tour.

Part 1 – Begin at your hotel:

Enjoy an easy pickup at (or nearby) to your hotel. Meet your know-it-all guide. As you settle into your seat, meet the other guests. Ask them where they are from.

Tour SOMA, the financial district, San Francisco’s Waterfront and the Ferry Building. Enjoy a quick stop and get some coffee and breakfast pastries.

Cruise along the Embarcadero to Pier 35 (Alcatraz drop off).

Part 2 - Special morning attraction:

If you have booked your Bay In a Day with Alcatraz, we will drop you off at Pier 33 and you will board a ferry to Alcatraz Island. Your Alcatraz Tour begins with a 45 minute audio presentation "Doing Time: The Alcatraz Cellhouse Tour," featuring recordings of actual guards and inmates who lived and worked on the Island. Once your Alcatraz Audio Tour is finished, explore Alcatraz Island as long want on your own, but don’t forget that you have to get the ferry back to San Francisco!

Alternatively, you can book your Bay In a Day tour with a visit to Muir Woods. Sit back and relax as we journey to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area where the Giant Coastal Redwoods of Muir Woods await. Hug a tree! Think deep thoughts! On the way back, we will make a stop in the (usually) sunny, sea-side community of Sausalito. Charming!


For our Muir Woods National Monument visitors, you have the opportunity to grab lunch in Sausalito! It is probably the best choice for lunch. Pick a table by a window! Then head back to San Francisco and start your city tour.

For our Alcatraz Visitors, you will have time to grab some lunch along the waterfront after your Alcatraz tour is completed. Meet up at the Zephyr Hotel by 1:40 so we can re-board the vehicle for our afternoon exploring more San Francisco attractions.

Part 4 - Late afternoon:

Start the afternoon portion of the tour with a trip to the Palace of Fine Arts. After snapping some pics there, we’ll all journey across the grand Golden Gate Bridge.
Enter Golden Gate Park from the Ocean Beach - cool!. Here, you’ll see the Bison Paddock. Enormous Dutch windmills! And Spreckels Lake. Beautiful! Take a 20 minute break here and explore.

Put some flowers in your hair as you arrive in Haight-Ashbury—epicenter for the Summer of Love. See the Grateful Dead House, Jimi Hendrix Red House and Victorian homes that survived the fire of 1906.

Pass through the storied Castro and its rainbow crosswalk and Mission districts. See the Mission Dolores; it was founded in 1776. Then roll by public murals—some old, some still fresh!

Catch views of awesome public buildings: SF City Hall. War Memorial Opera House. The Pioneer Monument. Take more pics!
We take it nice and slow as we pass Nob Hill on our way to Union Square. There’s a lot to see here! Grace Cathedral. The Fairmont and Mark Hopkins hotels. And the Pacific Union Club.

A close-up look at Chinatown and its amazing street life. Sometimes the traffic is crazy, but we know the best ways through it...

See North Beach, the Italian neighborhood of San Francisco. You will see Little Italy cafes, Washington Square Park, St. Peter & Paul Church, Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower. Jump off the tour here and have dinner if you like!
