Alcatraz & San Francisco - West Coast Baseball Tour Part V

Posted by Glenn Dunlap on Mon, Jul 30, 2012 @ 10:30 AM

Major League Baseball teams and stadiums are located in some of the greatest cities that our country has to offer. So it only stands to reason that we allow our guests time to explore these cities while on our baseball tours. That's been one of our basic features since we began Big League Tours in 2006. The other part of that, is we give you the flexibility to see what you want to see, to make the trip what you want of it and not be forced to do things you aren't interested in. 

San Francisco is one of those great cities. And explore it we did. From the moment we touched Alcatraz - main corridordown, we began our exploration. We stayed right in the heart of Frisco. Our guests were given Metro Passports and could ride anywhere in the city for free as much and as often as they wanted. 

We also like to help our guests plan out their free time if they'd like us to. Knowing that Alcatraz tours sell out days or weeks in advance, we asked our guests if they'd like to take that tour and booked it for them. Here's a shot from inside the infamous prison, with our headsets on taking the audio tour. 

Our guests were able to spend time at Pier 39's restaurants and shops, Ghiradelli Square,San Francisco Trolley Car Chinatown, and other parts of downtown San Francisco. They were also able to venture to the north part of the city and see the Golden Gate bridge up close. 

Another thing you have to do in San Francisco is ride a trolley car. Here'a a view of the ride that we took from Ghiradelli Square back to our hotel near Market Street. As you can tell from the picture, the sun was out and things had cleared off this afternoon. We had a lot of fun standing on the platform and getting a unique experience this city offers. 

If you are looking for baseball vacation packages that offer you the advantages of group tours but the flexibility to explore on your own, we hope that you'll consider traveling with Big League Tours. We truly offer the best of both worlds!
