Extranomical's San Francisco local-based tours include:
San Francisco City Insider's Tour
Those who want to explore San Francisco from a local’s perspective can join a San Francisco City Insider’s Tour. Highlights include, but are not limited to, the world-famous “international orange”-painted Golden Gate Bridge, the 360° view from Twin Peaks, bustling Union Square, majestic Palace of Fine Arts, international neighborhoods like North Beach (Little Italy), Chinatown and the Mission District and much more. With more stops and photo opportunities on this San Francisco city tour as well as more time at each attraction, this tour is great for those who want to discover hidden sights not included in other city tours or guide books.
Fisherman's Wharf Walking Tours
View the world-famous cable cars and Lombard Street, the 'crookedest street in the world' where the twists and turns in the road look more like a snake than a street. Get a taste of the Italian neighborhood, North Beach, and see Saints Peter and Paul Church, famously known for Marilyn Monroe’s and Joe DiMaggios’ wedding photo backdrop. The tour guide will also lead the way to a hidden staircase and path that winds its way up to Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill, where guests will be able to take in breathtaking 360-degree views of the entire city.
Muir Woods Expedition
For those looking for some fresh air just outside of the city, Extranomical offers a half-day Muir Woods Expedition. For two hours, guests will gaze up into the forest's canopy, surrounded by the tallest tree species in the world, the Coastal Redwood Sequoia trees. Stroll along the mostly flat valley floor along Redwood Creek, or get an aerobic workout climbing the paths up the valley slopes to look out over the tops of these magnificent giants. This tour also includes an optional stop at the Golden Gate Bridge or Sausalito. Guests are welcome to explore this cute seaside town of on their own and take the ferry back into the city. This tour has some of the best views and photo opportunities!
A Sausalito trip, with a ferry ride back to San Francisco, can be added on to either the San Francisco City Insider or Fisherman's Wharf Walking Tours. Optional add-ons for all San Francisco tour packages include bay cruises or cable car tickets, as well as a popular Alcatraz side trip to visit the most famous prison in U.S. history.
