Visit the Conservatory of Flowers, Arboretum/ Botanical Gardens, Shakespeare Garden, and Japanese Tea Gardens. Circle around Stow Lake, viewing Strawberry Hill, and learn some very interesting haunted ghost history.

Later, continue on to the beach and peddle along oceanfront bike paths as you admire the sweeping sand dunes that shore up the city. Heading back, pass the Bison Paddock, Spreckels Lake and more. At the tour's end, riders can take the opportunity to visit 2 world-class museums which are located nearby: the California Academy of Sciences and the DeYoung Museum.

The following day, depart from Pier 33, and board the official boat to Alcatraz island which doubles up as a sightseeing cruise through San Francisco Bay. Upon arrival on the island, watch an orientation video and pick up an audio headset to begin the 2.5-hour award-winning self-guided tour.
