We took a half day tour of the city with a trip to Alcatraz included in the afternoon. This was a fantastic way to see San Francisco, the tour takes you to many parts of the city that you just don't see on one of the "hop-on, hop-off" tour buses. Our tour guide Aaron was funny and enthusiastic, you really got the impression that the tour company genuinely cared about ensuring that your experience is the best ever. The bus had open sides but rugs and jackets were provided if you got too cold. Highlights were the view from Twin Peaks and lunch in the Castro at a beautiful deli. Aaron was very knowledgeable about the city and gave plenty of advice as to where to dine, and how to get around for the duration of our stay. Highly recommended for first-time visitors like us.
