On this fun-filled historical city tour, hop aboard the Magic Bus that will transport you to 1960s San Francisco. Become a part of the Beatnik generation, see Haight-Ashbury in the Summer of Love and visit San Francisco's Chinatown, from which eastern philosophy spread in the 1960s. Discover the iconic neighborhoods as they are now with your own eyes, and see the past come alive with retractable projection screens that cover the windows, giving you a look back in time.

Board the brightly colored Magic Bus in central San Francisco and begin your journey through time as you are transported from Union Square to Chinatown, a culturally vibrant pocket of San Francisco that is home to the largest population of Chinese in America. Chinatown was a significant part of America's exposure to Eastern philosophies in the 1960s and beyond.

Next, visit North Beach, where you will see the City Lights bookstore. City Lights was the epicenter of profound social change in San Francisco, where many famous Beat-generation poems were published and Beatniks like Jack Kerouac hung out.

Continue your Magic Ride and watch modern San Francisco blend with the past as you travel through the Financial District and up central Market Street en route to the crossroads of Haight and Ashbury streets – the home of the Summer of Love.

After you've experienced the famous Haight-Ashbury district through the bus's windows of time-altered perception, your next destination is the lush gardens of Golden Gate Park, where you'll stop at the Conservatory of Flowers. Hear how America's largest urban park hosted the Human Be-In event in 1967 and the first Earth Day in 1970. If the weather is nice, you may join a drum circle!

The '60s-era video, music and costumed staff of the Magic Bus will have you feeling present in the past as you are immersed in one of the United States' most memorable cultural movements. It's not just a sightseeing tour – it's a trip!

    Water Tours San Francisco
    $70
    Take the ultimate sunset cruise, California-style! Relax as you enjoy amazing views of San Francisco and a light appetizer buffet during this casual two-hour cruise of San Francisco Bay. The sailings are timed to coincide with sunsets; the Sunset Bay Cruise departure time and route will differ to the Twilight Cruise which sails during the winter months.

    Sunset Bay Cruise:

    With live commentary by the captain and cool background music, this cruise is a wonderful way to explore San Francisco Bay at twilight during late March through early November.

    As the sun begins to set over the Marin Headlands, you'll cruise past Alcatraz, Angel Island and the shorelines of Tiburon, Belvedere and Sausalito. Watch the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean as you sail west toward the Golden Gate Bridge. On your way back to Fisherman's Wharf you'll see many more famous sights, including the Presidio, the Marina District and Fort Mason.

    During your sunset or twilight cruise, head to the light appetizer buffet to enjoy spinach puff pastry rolls; roast beef sliders; crudités and an antipasto patter; chicken curry wrap; sliced fruit and gourmet cheeses and a cookie platter. You can purchase more drinks at the full bar on board.

    All cruise vessels offer indoor and outdoor seating, and restrooms. There is no assigned seating or formal dress required, come as you are for an evening of relaxed sunset sailing! Vessels operate on bio-diesel, a renewable energy source.

    Twilight Cruise:

    In the winter, the cruise changes its itinerary to make the most of the spectacular city lights view of San Francisco. As the sun sets over the horizon, you'll sail past San Francisco's modern skyscrapers, historic landmarks, the infamous island of Alcatraz and both the Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge.

    Your evening of breathtaking San Francisco views will be accompanied with live guitar entertainment, hearty buffet of sandwiches, salads, dessert, and a beverage from the bar.

    Whether you are enjoying the skyline views from the ship's heated indoor spaces or out on the outdoor viewing decks, the city lights are an unmissable San Francisco attraction.

      Vampire Tour of San Francisco

      Ghost Tours San Francisco
      $25

      The Vampire Tour of San Francisco is a walking tour of Nob Hill, conducted by Mina Harker from "Dracula." The script contains approximately 85% true San Francisco history with fun vampire lore and humor mixed in. The tour is not frightening, so it is suitable for all ages. Learn many fun and some surprising facts about San Francisco's history and how vampires played an important role in that history. The walk is very easy, with no climbing up and down hills, and is wheelchair friendly.  The tour is conducted on the first Saturday of each month, and on Halloween night.

      We meet on the corner of California and Taylor Streets, across the street from Grace Cathedral, on the side of the street where Huntington Park is. The first stop is Grace Cathedral, which lasts about 20 minutes. You learn the history of Grace Cathedral, and how it came to be in its current location. There are steps and a cement wall about 3 feet high that the audience may sit on if they want to. The second stop is the Nob Hill Café, which is one block from Grace Cathedral. We are at the café for about 15 minutes, and there are chairs outside the café that may be used if no customers from the café are using them. Here you will hear a very creative story about the history of what used to be where the café is now. This is a large portion of the 15% that is not particularly true history, but is a lot of fun to listen to. The third stop is Huntington Park, which is across the street from Grace Cathedral, so again it is a one block walk. There are benches for the audience to sit on at the park. This stop lasts about 15 minutes and covers, not only the history of the park, but information about Alcatraz and the cemeteries that were removed from San Francisco a century ago. The next stop is the Pacific-Union Club, which is directly behind the park, and is about a 2 minute walk. If there is no event being held at the club when the tour is there, the audience is allowed to sit on the bottom steps of the club. This stop is about 15 minutes, and the history of the club, which includes James Flood, who was the original owner of the building, is very fascinating. Next we visit the Fairmont Hotel. This is one of the most famous hotels in the world, and one of the most haunted spots in San Francisco. The history of the hotel is very interesting, especially the ghost stories I have been told by the staff at the hotel. This is the only stop the audience goes into. The Fairmont is home to the Venetian Room, which has a wonderful secret, that I have been given permission to disclose to the audience when I bring them in. This is only allowed when the room is not being used for an event at the time we are there. We are at the Fairmont Hotel for about 15 minutes. The last stop is the Mark Hopkins Hotel, which is located across the street from the Fairmont Hotel. I tell the history of the hotel, including stories about Mark Hopkins and his wife. This takes about 15 minutes. Also covered on the tour are: The Big Four (Charles Crocker, Collis Huntington, Leland Stanford, and Mark Hopkins), the 1906 Earthquake and Fire, the tunnels of San Francisco, Emperor Norton, and several other not so well known secrets of San Francisco.

      Your tour professional will accompany you for 18 holes of golf. If there are more than 3 individuals in your group, the professional will play the front nine with one group and play the back nine with the other group.

      During your round of golf, your professional will be able to show the group any tricks, techniques, and game management/strategy advice to assist each member in your group in improving their game.

      At the end of your round of golf, you will be picked up from the course and transported back to your original departure point in the San Francisco Bay area.

      You can recommend a course that you would like to play or the local service provider can handpick a course for you, based on your skill level. Here is a list of just a few of the many courses you can choose from:

      • The Bridges Golf Club
      • Eagle Vines Golf Club
      • Hiddenbrooke Golf Club
      • Chardonnay Golf Club

      Theater, Dance, & Musicals San Francisco
      $21
      Brace yourself for a sultry Spanish night when the wood floor burns with pulsating sounds of footwork, song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping and guitar for a riveting display of this true Spanish art form Flamenco. Mother & daughter duo, Carolina's y Carole's, high energy and passion defines a new dimension in Spanish dance traditions. In the heart of North Beach, Pachamama is a small colorful nightclub, full of charm, known for its tapas and great selections of wine, beer and specialty cocktails.

      A Landmark Location since 1918, it housed one of San Francisco's most important speakeasies and became one of the most famous restaurants in the city. Peña Pachamama was formerly Amelio's, a famous fine dining establishment where Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe had their wedding dinner. The Kennedys were frequent guests. In the upstairs dining room Clark Gable and Carole Lombard rendezvoused.Robin Williams declared the wildly rhythmic nightspot "the kind of place even the Amish would dance." -SF Chronicle

      Peña Pachamama is known for its Latin American, Bolivian and raw food tapas and other dishes, plus wine, beer and specialty cocktails for purchase.

      "Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine

      “Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows… When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she's equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cook—with what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine "It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune
