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?
