Take the award-winning 45-minute Cellhouse audio tour and hear the tales of those who lived in Alcatraz. The tour brings history to life through the recounting of tales from correctional officers and prisoners

After your Alcatraz Island visit, enjoy a break at Fisherman's Wharf and fuel up on seafood and the infamous Sourdough Clam Chowder bowl. Then, travel north into the vine-covered hillsides of the Sonoma California Wine Country.

Stop at 2 selected wineries and enjoy some wine tastings on an exclusive estate tour. Experience the inner workings of the wineries and learn of their history in the Napa and Sonoma Valley. Be guided by an expert wine host through the fermentation process, barrel aging, bottling, and tastings of some award-winning varietals. At each winery, enjoy up to 3-5 tastings of their signature blends.
