    Great experience to learn about how the prison was run, a great step back in time. We learnt a lot on the trip about the Indians, the life of the prisoner as well as it being a recognised bird sanctuary

    Golden gate was beautiful. We made it just in time for sunset and the view was stunning. Recommend to rent a car if you plan to visit as it can be hard to get a Uber.

    We wanted to experience a uniquely american activity so we booked tickets to a baseball game at Oracle Stadium. We got in quickly once our electronic tickets were scanned and found our seats easily. It was a beautiful day and the crowd was cheerful, at least in the beginning until the other team began to do better. There were over 30,000 people there but the queues for bathrooms and food were well managed and waits were short. The views were stunning. We thought there would be big queues to get out but we got out very quickly and the large number of people on the street outside
    quickly dispersed.

    Gale force winds dislodging your camera/phone from your hands, standing on the edge of nowhere with no bottom in sight all to get some of the best views of San Francisco. It was all well worth it. Twin Peaks is a must see.

    The Wine Merchant was an excellent place with a great selection to taste and purchase along with some cheese and meat plates. The bar keep James knew his wines and told us of interesting places to visit. Found some good things there worth the visit...

    On previous occasions in San Francisco I have driven down Lombard Street, this time I decided to exercise some eco-tourism and walked down. Driving it is more fun

    Good place for city views. We visited and couldn't find the proper place to park. We had to visit one at a time driving around.

    Honestly, Pier 39 is like a version of Blackpool. If you like Blackpool you will love it. We didnt. Shortage of decent coffee shops where you could sit down just for a coffee/pastry.

    Nice place to take photos and shop for souvenir. Be careful of pickpockets and it was beautiful at sunset.

    The Dilbert Steps are an excellent way to get to the Coit Tower. It’s a great part of older San Francisco. There are houses and gardens all along. Views amazing.

    The ride is beautiful on the newly designed bridge. You see so much, the SF skyline, Yerba Buena Island, and the whole landscape of the immediate East Bay. Love the lights at night. It's a modern miracle.

    The building is just astonishing and amazing to look at. Unfortunately the surrounded area is not the best, please be careful when visiting.

    Grace Cathedral sits prominently on the top of the Nob Hill area of San Francisco. Beautiful building …it’s very commanding!
