Full description
Smell the salty Pacific Ocean and feel the wind in your hair with a cruise to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and tour of San Francisco’s most distinct neighborhoods. See where Hollywood titans penned their most iconic scripts and a legendary baseball player (supposedly) married a Hollywood legend. Hear the story of an American secretly winning Italy's most prized pizza-making competition and climb two blocks to Lombard, known as the most crooked street in the world. Get a taste of local history at Ghirardelli Square, where chocolate staked its claim in San Francisco during the Gold Rush. Visit the bustling Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 to meet the real stars of the show, the local sea lions. Get spectacular views of the city and Alcatraz Island from the Bay with a cruise to the Marina District, where you can travel under the Golden Gate Bridge.
