Description

Muir Woods and Sausalito:

Get picked-up from your hotel and spend 2 hours in Muir Woods, a beautiful valley filled with beautiful Redwood Sequoia trees. The main trail has a boardwalk and runs along the shadowy Redwood creek. Discover the park and walk through of some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world.

After this, head to the quiet and charming town of Sausalito - home of thousands of sailboats and hundreds of floating houses.

Alcatraz Island:

Then, get dropped off at Alcatraz and explore the Island in the afternoon. The Alcatraz Island was once a lonely maximum security prison which housed America's most wanted criminals for 29 years, and whose population, including guards and staff, never rose above 500. Since 1973, when Alcatraz has been open to the public, it has become one of the most popular destinations for tourists visiting San Francisco.

Once inside the prison, you will receive a headset for the audio presentation called "Doing Time: The Alcatraz Cell house Tour", which includes 45 minutes of recordings of actual guards and inmates who lived and worked on the Island. Also learn interesting facts about the island, such as that Alcatraz was not only used as a prison but also as a harbor defense fort during the civil war and before then, was America's first lighthouse on the West Coast.
