What to Expect
Trip Itinerary Overview:
The first part of this new and custom tour: After a complimentary pick-up at your hotel in San Francisco, you will depart south and cruise along California State Route 1, on the dramatic and rugged coastline of the Pacific Ocean to visit a family owned ranch of horseback riding at historic stable, located just south of San Francisco and North of Half -Moon Bay.
Meet-up with horse trainers, saddle up and embark on this thrilling horseback ride to enjoy a one-hour escorted ride, an amazing experience suitable for the whole family— even for first-time riders or beginners! No prior horseback riding experience is required, as you will be supervised by professional trainers.
We will also drive you to Pacifica State Beach and old town, this is a popular destination for locals and surfers where you can have breakfast or a brunch before heading back to San Francisco to visit Alcatraz island. Your Alcatraz prison tickets, ferry and horseback ride are all included.
Depending on Alcatraz tickets available and the season, the trip itinerary may not be available unless both Alcatraz and the horseback rides are available, please book weeks and months in advance so we can assist you in the best way possible.
The second part of your Alcatraz and horseback ride combo adventure will take you to legendary Island, also known as the ‘The Rock’. Your personal tour guide will drive you to the Alcatraz Ferry building, a terminal for Alcatraz ferries that provide transfers from San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz and return. This is the only ferry line allowed to access Alcatraz Island and it’s all included in the tour prices. These ferries and prison tickets are often sold months in advance, so the sooner you book, the better.
Don’t worry about traffic, parking, sold-out tickets and crowds; we take care of that on your behalf. This is a worry-free tour package with entrance fees and tickets included. Your private driver will redeem your Alcatraz trip voucher, get you the required official prison tickets to Alcatraz and help you to check in on the next ferry to Alcatraz Island. Unlike all other tour companies, we are with you all the way and take care of these details and reservations.
Once you disembark on the island, you will be offered Alcatraz’s award-winning self-guided audio tour, included in your tour price, so you can tour the Alcatraz Prison at your own pace and in your preferred language in addition to English.
After visiting Alcatraz, you will return to Pier 33 by ferry where you can explore San Francisco Fisherman’s Wharf – home to the city’s top hotels attractions, museums, and seafood restaurants.
We offer complimentary meet and greet in the lobby of your hotel or at your designated pickup location. Your private and personal tour guide will be holding a placard with our company’s logo and your name on it. We will drop you off at Alcatraz ferry terminal at the end of the tour. However, there will be no drop off after you’ll return from Alcatraz to keep the cost down, you’ll need to return to your hotel on your own.
Please hand over your voucher to your private tour guide who will take it from here, you’ll be in good hands.
Requirement: Must be at least 7 years or older, and under 200 lb to ride a horse.
