Dylan’s Famous Tour with Alcatraz Day Tour – The best way to see it all in 1-Day!

Explore the city’s famous neighborhoods on a comfortable minibus tour of San Francisco. Spend over an hour in Muir Woods National Monument, and experience one of the last remaining, coastal redwood forests in the world. Then enjoy a relaxing lunch break in Fisherman’s Wharf, complete with the sights and sounds of Pier 39’s celebrated sea lions. In the afternoon, you will board the ferry for the Official Alcatraz Day Tour. This infamous former federal prison was once home to Al Capone, George “Machine Gun” Kelly and is a must-do while visiting San Francisco. 

Please note this tour will sell-out throughout the year, especially during the spring and summer seasons. We highly recommend booking early to guarantee your spot!

This tour is the best way to “see it all” if you have only 1-Day in San Francisco.

*Alcatraz—Used as a federal prison between 1933-1964, Alcatraz housed some of the most dangerous criminals of the time, including Al Capone, James “Whitey” Bulger and George “Machine Gun” Kelly. Featuring unbelievable views of the San Francisco peninsula, a visit to the island is essential when in town.

*Muir Woods — Muir Woods National Monument is home to some of the oldest and most beautiful trees in the world. Many of our guests consider this stop to be the highlight of their trip.

Fisherman’s Wharf— One of San Francisco’s most popular destinations – from old shipyards, to Boudin’s Bakery and the smell of fresh clam chowder, Fisherman’s Wharf has it all.

North Beach— Voted as one of the USA’s “ten great neighborhoods”, North Beach is best known as the home of Little Italy. From delicious restaurants to authentic sidewalk cafes and bakeries, you will feel the charm of San Francisco as soon as you arrive.

Chinatown— Boasting the largest Chinatown in the United States, this 24-block mecca is bustling with energy, amazing food, and unique and colorful shops that give this area its charm.

*City Hall— This beautiful Beaux-Arts monument epitomizes the high-minded American Renaissance of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The site of Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn Monroe’s marriage in 1954.

*Pacific Heights— Offering one of the most scenic outlooks in all of Northern California, Pacific Heights is home to Billionaire’s Row, featuring the estates of politicians, tech titans and other San Francisco celebrities (includes Mrs. Doubtfire house!)

Presidio— Former military base, now a beautiful park that includes Crissy Field, Fort Point, Lucasfilm’s (George Lucas) headquarters and the Walt Disney Museum.

*Fort Point— Located just beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Point gives you a front row seat to the Bay and is a great photo stop. This former military fortification was used during WWII.

Golden Gate Bridge— Declared “one of the 10 wonders of the modern world,” the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most recognized symbols of San Francisco. Simply stunning!
