The Double Decker and Alcatraz Combo Tour is a 5-in-1 packing providing you with the experience to see San Francisco’s best sights. It includes a fully narrated tour of the Golden Gate loop, including the bridge, views of the city’s skyline, the mansions of Pacific Heights, and Fisherman’s Wharf. Downtown, you’ll see Union Square, crooked Lombard Street, and even the largest Chinatown outside of Asia, all atop a double-decker bus.
You’ll want to get tickets a few weeks in advance so that you don’t miss the cellblocks of Alcatraz, “The Rock,” which was the home of Al Capone and other infamous mobsters. Featuring interviews with inmates and guards who actually lived there before the prison closed in 1968, Alcatraz is all the rage.
This is a hop-on, hop-off tour allows guests to shop and eat along the way. The Japanese Tea Gardens or Postcard Row is where the most famous of San Francisco’s “Painted Ladies” can be viewed- and, if you’re a Full House fan, you may recognize the sights from the show’s credits. For night owls, there’s even a special night loop.
One trip on the Double Decker and Alcatraz Combo Tour and you will have officially conquered San Francisco- well, kind of.
