San Francisco: Bus Tours
San Francisco has taken a leaf out of London’s book with ‘hop on, hop off’ double-decker open topped tour buses. These bus tours around San Francisco are an ideal way to see the city, as you can get off to visit the sights rather than simply driving past them. All the bus tours around San Francisco visit the notable beauty spots and main points of interest in the city. You can also get tours that include a ferry out to the prison on Alcatraz or a cruise around the Bay. Another bus tour idea is to visit the wineries in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. This is a great way to explore the wine country without worrying about driving back to San Francisco. The winery tours are an all day excursion. Leaving from San Francisco, the bus tour will take you across the Golden Gate Bridge through the Marin countryside and on up to visit some of the vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. While there you can taste and shop at the wineries, have lunch in one of the restaurants and visit some of the area’s historic villages.
