FOR SPOUSES — CITY TOUR AND ALCATRAZ

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.

FOR SPOUSES — CITY TOUR AND FERRY BUILDING MARKETPLACE

The San Francisco Ferry Building Marketplace is a food lover’s destination par excellence. At this historic waterfront landmark, a renowned food writer will guide you on a gastronomic tour, meeting local farmers and artisanal food makers, and sampling their delectable olive oils, cheeses, organic fruits and heirloom vegetables. You will learn about what makes farming different in this part of the world and how the farmers’ produce makes its way onto plates at California’s top restaurants. After tasting your way through the Ferry Building, you will depart on your San Francisco City Tour, taking in the sights of Chinatown, the San Francisco Opera and Fisherman's Wharf, with views of Twin Peaks and the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. The last stop on your adventure is Union Square for a shopping excursion to some of the City’s finest boutiques.
