Straight to the Gate Access: Golden Gate Bay Cruise

474 reviews
It can be challenging to see top San Francisco sights in one day. This San Francisco Bay cruise from Fisherman's Wharf lets you see top attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito from the water in a short amount of time. The open ticket can be used within a year of purchase, allowing you flexibility, especially with multiple departures per day.

Wide selection of exotic teas. Most of them very expensive. Sometimes they give out samples which makes it easier to make your selection. When we went by we got NO samples...

Excellent tea selection and the ability to taste any of them. Easy to find in the heart of Chinatown. Polite and knowledgeable staff.

I purchased green tea at Vital Tea Leaf in Chinatown. They have a wide variety of green tea and lots of other teas as well. Green tea is good for one's health. The staff also made sure I understood how to make the absolute best green tea. Helpful tips. This is a good place to shop if one likes tea.

We recently visited Vital Tea Leaf during our recent trip to San Francisco. We were given the opportunity to sample various varieties of tea as our host energetically described how the right blend of tea can cure baldness, alcoholism, bad breath, and whatever else ails ya. A very entertaining guy. We tried many tea blends although we did pass on the one labeled Duck S**t. And of course we ended up spending $40 on a box of tea that would sell for $4 at the local supermarket. But well worth the trip.

Our small family took a food tour of Chinatown and North Beach, a tea tasting at Vital Tea Leaf was part of the tour, and it was one of my favorite parts of the entire experience. Now, I love tea--I have several cups every day--but I have never been a big fan of Chinese tea, and green tea in general. While the tea we tasted was good quality tea properly prepared, it wasn't my personal favorite. However, what made the experience so good was the friendly and knowledgeable woman who provided the service for our entire group. She explained each type of tea she was brewing, the method used to brew it, and the conditions and ailments that the tea was well-suited to treat. She did this in a whirlwind fashion, talking nearly non-stop while brewing up several (seven?) different teas and serving our group of 12 while dealing with an occasional non-tour customer. It was pretty amazing.
