Alcatraz and Silicon Valley 2-day Tour

Visit Alcatraz and Silicon Valley, two of the most iconic places in San Francisco.

Alcatraz Island is the #1 attraction in San Francisco, and you can see it for yourself! Make your way to Fisherman’s Wharf on day 1 where you can pick up your tickets for your Alcatraz Tour. You’ll take the ferry out to the island, with amazing views of the San Francisco skyline, Golden Gate Bridge, and Angel Island.

Upon arrival, you’ll learn a brief history of “The Rock” and then head up to the prison. You’ll be equipped with an audio tour titled “Doing Time”, in which you’ll hear interviews from former inmates and learn more history about Alcatraz. You may explore for as long as you want (the ferry departs for the mainland approximately every 30-40 minutes).

The next morning, get ready to see where it all began! This tour will take you through the origin stories of Apple, Google, IBM, and many previously unrecognized technologists that paved the way for the advent of the hardware we use every day.

We’ll start the day with a visit to the Computer History Museum: see some of the first mega-computers and commercially-produced machines, as well as classics like Pac Man and Atari to stir up some childhood memories. We’ll visit the Google Campus/gift shop and check-in at Facebook, and head over to the newly-built Apple visitor’s center for an interactive exhibit of the new campus, and opportunity to test out the newest gadgets.

Then, grab some lunch in Palo Alto (at your own expense!) before heading back to San Francisco.
