Description

Your day begins near Alcatraz Landing, where you’ll meet your guide and get your tickets. Before you hop on the ferry to the island, we’ll give you some insider tips and tricks for navigating Alcatraz, noting what to look out for and even offering a few local recommendations for where to get a bite to eat when you return. Your all-inclusive Alcatraz ticket means your roundtrip ferry to the island (with views of the Golden Gate Bridge) is covered, and once you get there you’ll have your own official audio guide to help put it all into context.

While we’ll be leaving you here to enjoy your Alcatraz experience, it’s not goodbye from us. Before you board the ferry we’ll explain where to meet for your deep dive into the history and culture of Chinatown later that afternoon, and how best to get there.

Starting near the Dragon’s Gate, we’ll take you back to when the district was a warren of brothels and opium dens where sailors came looking for a good time. You’ll learn the ways the area has improved over the years as we take in district landmarks such as Waverly Place, Portsmouth Square, and St. Mary’s Cathedral.

We’ll visit a traditional apothecary, tempt your tastebuds at some of the city’s best bakeries, and - a real highlight of the tour - journey inside the legendary Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory to learn all about the art of fortune cookie making. Not only will you discover a thing or two about the iconic after-dinner treat, you’ll also receive a special custom-made cookie as a little gift from us! Your tour comes to an end in Chinatown but don’t worry - before you go we’ll discuss the eight great cuisines of China and let you know where best to try them, and share some of our favourite places for dim sum.

Eddie our guide was great. The Alcatraz tour was self guided, but it was nice to be able to spend as much time as I wanted in the island. The Chinatown tour was great. Eddie took us to many different sites and was extremely knowledgeable about the history of SF and Chinatown. I would definitely recommend this tour.
