San Francisco

Tuesday 20th:

Without doubt, San Francisco is one of America’s most beautiful cities.

We are here for two days and will pack as much in as possible. However, whilst we are here we will definitely tour all of the major attractions of the city...

  • Union Square

  • Twin Peaks

  • Chinatown

  • Union Street

  • Cow Hollow

  • Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf


Slide4 l.jpg

The Octagon House, Union Street

The beautiful Victorian Architecture of Union Street

Union Street

Also known as Cow Hollow, Union Street is affluent, fashionable and the place to find the residents of Pacific Heights eating, drinking and socialising.

Before the Gold Rush, this area was a green dale where hundreds of cows grazed – hence the name.


Slide5 l.jpg

Twin Peaks

At 913 feet, this is the highest point in San Francisco and will provide us with some spectacular views...


Slide6 l.jpg

Lombard Street

As you will know, San Francisco is built on some very steep hills. For this reason Lombard Street was built with many sharp curves. In fact it has the claim to be America’s“crookedest” street!


Slide7 l.jpg

Golden gate bridge

Without doubt its most famous landmark, the Golden Gate Bridge is made out of gold. Just kidding! It is over 3km though, and when built, was the longest suspension bridge in the world!


Slide8 l.jpg

Fisherman’s Wharf

What used to be a busy shipbuilding and industrial site is now a hugely popular tourist attraction with plenty of opportunities for souvenir shopping.

It is from here that trips to Alcatraz depart and it is also the home of Pier 39...


Slide9 l.jpg

Pier 39

The focal point of Fisherman’s Wharf is Pier 39 which is famous for its colony of sea lions.Pooh! It’s a bit smelly!


Slide10 l.jpg

The View of Alcatraz from the Cable Car

Alcatraz

Lying in the SF Bay is Alcatraz – one of the world’s most notorious prisons. It was supposed to be inescapable and housed prisoners like Al Capone.

We will spend Wednesday morning in Alcatraz.

Yosemite National Park

It’s hard to imagine a more beautiful place than this. Following the spectacle of the city of San Francisco we are taken away from it all in the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park...

Yosemite National Park - located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of central California - is a setting so spectacular and awe-inspiring that it is often referred to as the "Crown Jewel" of the National Park system.

They beckon visitors to explore, climb, photograph and experience their grandeur.

Death Valley is one of the hottest places on earth.

Death Valley is a treasure trove of scientific information about the ancient Earth and about the forces still working to shape our modern world. It is home to plants, animals, and human beings that have adapted themselves to take advantage of its rare and hard won bounty. It is a story of western expansion, wealth, greed, suffering and triumph. Death Valley is a land of extremes, and much more.
