We will be in San Fransisco from 6th to 9th September flying from New York after a three day city break on route to Las Vegas which because of flights amounts to 2.5 days. Would like to do as much as possible in the short time we have. We would like to do a boat trip seeing the Goldengate Bridge and Alcatraz, do these have to be separate or is there a combined trip? Are the Cable Cars like the Hop-on-Hop-off Buses you get in most major Cities. i.e pay a price for one-two days and go on and off when you please or are they the means for getting around the city as in normal bus routes in other cities. We are staying at the Argonaught, Fishermans Wharf and have been told the queue's for the Cable Cars can be long and very time consuming. Is there a tour we could do to see the best of San Fransisco.
Also what is the weather likely to be like begging of September?
Thanking you in anticipation of any replies
