San Francisco Short Break
from R 6,050* per person
Home to the epic Golden Gate Bridge, a supernatural looking fog that never seems to go away and probably the best chowder you've ever tasted, San Fran has the goods to make you never wanna leave. Obvs you'll want to see the famous bridge (a bike ride to charming Sausalito should be at the top of your list), but we suggest you also check out Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz and Lombard Street, 'the most crooked street in the world'. Make sure you savour your time here in Northern California - this short trip will fly! Please note: This trip is unguided, meaning you will not be accompanied by a Trip Leader.

DAY 1 San Francisco, California
Welcome to San Francisco. This Is. It. Drop your bags at the hotel, then it’s time to hit the streets. See that tram over there? That’s the famous San Francisco Cable Car. It’s your first day, so why not go and scope out the Golden Gate Bridge or hire a bike and ride to Sausalito? Whatever you choose, don’t forget to stop for selfies. On the way back, catch the ferry and have a drink to celebrate. You deserve it.
DAY 2 San Francisco
Rise and shine, then get dressed and scuttle over to the Crab Station at Fisherman's Wharf for a bowl of their infamous chowder. Rumour has it, it tastes like a warm hug in a bowl. After, walk off that full tummy and spot the seal colony next to Pier 39 (this place is so worth it for the noises they make alone). This afternoon, go exploring or hit up Alcatraz to end the day.
DAY 3 San Francisco
Today, get twisted: it’s time to check out one of the most iconic streets in San Francisco. Lined with colourful Victorian style houses, Lombard Street has eight spectacular hairpin turns – so sit back and watch the cars slowly twist and turn down the hill. While you’re outside, hike to the top of Twin Peaks and take in the view of Downtown San Fran. How ‘bout that view?
DAY 4 San Francisco
Barneys, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s – oh my! Spend your last day in San Francisco doing what any respectable person would do: shop away your feelings in Union Square, aka the crown jewel of all shopping districts. When you’re done, it’s time to jet off. One question remains: where will you go?
