DAY 1 – ALCATRAZ ISLAND
The Aquarium of the Bay is at Pier 39, and you may spend as much of your day there as you like. When it’s time for your Alcatraz Cruise, make your way to Pier 33 in Fisherman’s Wharf to pick up your Alcatraz tickets from the Group Services Window and meet the ferry. You may pick up your tickets any time the day of your tour, but they MUST be claimed no later than 30 minutes prior to the tour departure. You will need a valid ID and your paid voucher to pick up the tickets.
Departing for Alcatraz
Board your ferry and ride across the San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz Island. See the San Francisco Skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Angel Island from the ferry! Depart the ferry at Alcatraz and follow your guide up into the prison.
On Alcatraz Island
Enjoy the audio tour “Doing Time” with commentary from inmates and guards that experienced the prison when it was operational. You may take as much time as you’d like on the island; the ferries return to SF approximately every 30-40 minutes.
BONUS: If you are departing for the Alcatraz Night Tour, you’ll have access to areas of the island that are not open to the public on the day tours.
DAY 2 – SILICON VALLEY
Morning: Pick up from San Francisco hotels at 7:30am. First you’ll head into the Computer History Museum where you will learn the history of tech in California and see some of the world’s first computers! Your admission is included in the tour.
Noon: You’ll be dropped off to explore the Google Campus and explore the gift shop. You can also “check in” at the famous Facebook Thumbs-Up sign! Then, head to the newly built Apple Visitor’s center to see their interactive campus display and play with the newest iphones, ipads, and more!
Afternoon: Enjoy a tasty meal in downtown Palo Alto before heading back into San Francisco
