San Francisco family holidays can form part of a longer California road trip, but there’s more than enough family fun in Frisco alone.

Our team of USA experts can put together the perfect tailor-made San Francisco family holiday, taking into account your children's age and interests, and weaving together all the best that this splendid city has to offer, either as a standalone trip or as part of a wider California family itinerary. In addition, you will benefit from all Original Travel's exclusive additional services, which elevate a good family holiday to a great one. You can expect fast-track security and check-in at the airport, lounge access even if you're flying in economy class, and the services of our clued-up local Concierge when you're in San Francisco, from family-friendly restaurant recommendations and reservations to any last minute changes of plan. In addition, it's a long flight to San Francisco but our Sharky & George fun packs, full of games and quizzes for three to ten-year olds, shuold help keep them busy.

So, what are the highlights on any San Francisco family holidays? You'll want to start with a threesome of Frisco's most iconic family experiences: the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz island prison and Pier 39. Combine two of these by taking the children to buzzy Fisherman's Wharf, home to local 'sea-lebrities' the sea lions of Pier 39, who love nothing more than basking in the sun. From there, we can arrange a guided bike ride along the waterfront (past the Walt Disney Family Museum) across the epic Golden Gate Bridge and to Sausalito from where you can take a half-hour ferry back to Pier 39.

Then there's Alcatraz, the island that has been both a Civil War fortress and the most famous prison in the USA. Head over by boat and your guide will keep you and the children on tenterhooks with tales of daring escapes and gory ghost stories. For added spook factor, we can arrange a night-time tour.

Next, you can ride the city's famous trams, take a trip up wiggly Lombard Street and if you have sports mad children, we can book tickets to see a baseball or American football match. Not done yet? We can tailor-make a trip to combine your San Francisco family holidays with some of the other highlights of the Sunshine State of California.
