Full description
Set off on a half-day excursion to California's wine country in the morning and enjoy a scenic bay cruise around San Francisco Bay in the afternoon. Benefit from the convenience of a full-day combo tour. Start your day heading North to enjoy a scenic drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. Next, we drive through the beautiful seaside town of Sausalito, the Mediterranean-like village harbored across the San Francisco Bay and famous for its sweeping views on our way to Wine Country. As the vine-covered hillsides come into view, visit 2 popular wineries for wine tastings and an exclusive estate tour at 2 favorite local winery venues. At each winery, enjoy up to 3-5 tastings of their signature blends. Experience the inner workings of the wineries and their family history in Napa & Sonoma Valley, as an expert wine host walks you through the fermentation process, barrel aging, bottling, and of course tastings of some award-winning varietals Next, stop for a quick break at Fisherman's Wharf to enjoy some of the outdoor crab stations and get the chance to buy clam chowder in San Francisco's famous sourdough bowl. Finish your day with a 1.5-hour cruise at sunset sailing under both the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge in one spectacular cruise along San Francisco's entire urban skyline. Along the way, explore San Francisco's stunning landmarks like Alcatraz Island, Coit Tower, Ferry Building, Transamerica Pyramid, Palace of Fine Arts, and many more. Learn about this city's unique natural history, architecture, and Native American culture through our audio tour. Other interesting aspects of the multilingual audio tour include details about the building of both bridges, the geology of San Francisco Bay, and the architectural techniques developed to protect San Francisco from earthquakes. Cruising under both of San Francisco's incredible bridges surely will be the highlight of your journey.
