So today I decide to make the most of that $42 bus ticket and do the whole San Francisco tour. Luckily not all the buses have live guides or else I think I would have gone made hearing the same facts over and over again.
So first hop off is the City Hall a pretty building but also another homeless hub, not that anywhere isn’t in San Francisco. I end up not spending much time and move on to the next interesting stop.
Next stop end up being another stop at the Golden Gate Bridge on route to Sausalito on the other side of the bay. I wander a away from the busy viewing point and get my own crowd free spot with slightly better weather than the day before.
My Sausalito tour is just a bonus extra to my bus ticket. It give me a nice view over the Bay area and a wee wander round a nice suburby town but not over the top exciting. After Sausalito its back to San Francisco to check out Fisherman’s Wharf which is the busy restaurant part of town and were all the boat tours leave including the one to Alcatraz that I will be taking the following day. Another draw of Fisherman’s Wharf is Pier 39 for the sole reason all the sea lions like to hang out there and who doesn’t like sea lions?
Similarly a ticket extra is a night tour of San Francisco which despite still being light for most of the tour they still sell as a “night tour”. It includes a trip over to Treasure Island which gives a different view of San Francisco which is very pretty cause the sun has finally gone down a bit.
