The Bay tour as well as the trip to Alcatraz is a pleasant way to spend a lazy afternoon. We enjoyed it and the weather was perfect.

Love the Bay. Bay bridge is lit up at night....Love watching the fog come in and envelope the bay. This place is iconic no matter what country you come from. You will recognize it right away and feel at home right away.

Great bay to take a boat ride or ferry, j took the ferry the from Sausalito to city great views of golden gate, Alcatraz and the city. San Fransisco is a beautiful looking city from the Bay, very much worth the effort to take a boat or ferry trip on travels.
