Treasure Island, San Francisco, CA

The Basics

Located in the middle of the bay between San Francisco and Oakland, Treasure Island is outside the range of most city tours. If you want to visit, opt for a nighttime tour, where you can admire the lights of the Bay Bridge and the twinkling San Francisco skyline. Alternatively, get a view of the island from a helicopter flight, bay cruise, or speedboat ride.

Activities on the island include walking or biking along the shoreline, visiting the Treasure Island Museum, wine tasting at one of the island’s low-key establishments, such as Winery SF, and checking out the monthly TreasureFest, where you’ll find food trucks, clothing and art vendors, kids’ entertainment, and live music.

The team greets you while boarding. You walk onto the boat with 3 levels of seating, it’s very clean!! Friendly staff, ready to serve! Just a wonderful experience, different views of the bay and a bit of history from the caption. It’s was foggy but all worth it. I would do this again and again! Thank you!!

Amazing trip to Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park and Giant Sequoias Day Trip from San Francisco
Denise is an extraordinary tour guide. She is such a wonderful person personally and professionally. She takes care of everyone in the group tirelessly. Yosemite national park itself is extraordinary and much more beautiful to your eyes than to your camera. The bus is a bit old (no power outlet), but it is still quite comfortable and clean. I personally think that the tour is slightly too long (aprox 15 hours) but thank you to Denise to make this trip memorable!

The whole trip was memorable! the crew was very friendly, the mini bar was great, the bathrooms and boat were clean. The weather was perfect, the ride was great it got a little rough at one point, but it was overall great. not too long not too short. Being able to see the Golden Gate up close like that with my boo was the best part for me😘. Will definitely be back !

My boyfriend had never been to San Francisco so we did a weekend trip together and both wanted to do the boat tour. It was fantastic. Amazing views, good historical background to things we were seeing and friendly staff. The ship was clean too. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to see the Bay from a new angle!

2-Day San Francisco Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour + Night Tour (Deluxe)
You can see many nice places from the top of the bus. We used it 2 days to see China Town, Golden Gate Park, Lombard Street, Golden Gate Bridge and Pier 39. I love San Franscico.
