FOR SPOUSES — NOVEMBER 19, 08:00-16:45


Your day begins with a San Francisco City Tour, taking in the sights of Union Square, Chinatown, the San Francisco Opera and Fisherman's Wharf, with views of Twin Peaks and the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. Once you’ve enjoyed the sights and sounds of Fisherman’s Wharf, you will board your ferry to Alcatraz Island, the most notorious prison in US history—and now a National Park. Participants will enjoy a walking tour of the federal penitentiary, once home of the likes of Al "Scarface" Capone and "Machine Gun” Kelly, and the subject of many Hollywood blockbusters. After a short ferry ride back, you will enjoy a delicious lunch, followed by a shopping excursion to some of the City’s finest boutiques in Union Square.

The Global Infrastructure Initiative is an invitation-only event, limited to the most senior leaders in the global development and infrastructure sector. Participants include leading policy makers, planners, investors, financiers, builders, owners, and operators. Read more about McKinsey's Capital Projects & Infrastructure practice
