One of the most popular tour companies in the city, Dylan Tours offers a 2.5 hour San Francisco and Sausalito Tour. You will visit famous neighborhoods such as North Beach, the Mission, the Castro, Pacific Heights, and more. You will then cross the Golden Gate Bridge and be dropped off in lovely Sausalito, where you can take the scenic ferry back to San Francisco.
The open-air bus allows lots of opportunities for photos as it takes you around the city, though the tour stops at Fort Point to allow everyone a chance to get a close-up photo of Golden Gate Bridge. The local guides and small group size really set this tour apart.
You will learn all about San Francisco’s unique history and culture as you venture through some of the most iconic areas of the city. They also have a combination ticket to Alcatraz.
