Are you one of the 16.5 million tourists who visit San Francisco each year to enjoy its countless attractions and soak up the atmosphere of the city so famously celebrated in song? If so, you’ve made a wise choice that will reward you with unforgettable experiences galore. Without stops, this tour would take only two hours, but we’re in no hurry in laid-back San Francisco — take your time and see and savour the sights at your leisure. The tour sets off from Washington Square Park in the North Beach neighbourhood. We walk across the park and three blocks up Filbert Street to Coit Tower for fabulous views of the Bay Bridge, Alcatraz, Pier 39 and the Golden Gate Bridge. Next, we walk down the Filbert Steps, eventually arriving at the New Waterfront, then proceed to Ferry Building Marketplace before taking the obligatory — and fun —cable car ride to Chinatown and Little Italy. Don’t forget to use the information in the travel guide and check out City Passes that allow you to avoid queues and grab great discounts. The off-line mapping will save you money too.

Fisherman’s Wharf and Hidden Hillsides

Are you one of the 16.5 million tourists who visit San Francisco each year to soak up the atmosphere of the city celebrated in song? If so, you’ve made a wise choice that. Without stops, this tour would take a mere 90 minutes, but we’re in no hurry — take your time and savour the sights at your leisure. The tour starts at the famous Pier 39, where the local sea lions are a great attraction. From here we’ll take a cable car to the Cable Car Museum, then set out for San Francisco’s ‘crookedest street’ (Lombard Street), so called because of the one-block section with no less than eight tight hairpin turns. We get there via the rarely-trodden Russian Hill walk where we’ll see some really elegant homes. Next stop is Ghirardelli Square, then we head to lively Fisherman’s Wharf where you can take some fab photos of former prison island Alcatraz. Don’t forget to use the information in the travel guide and check out City Passes that allow you to avoid queues and grab great discounts. The off-line mapping will save you money too.
