Discover the best of the City By The Bay with a whirlwind tour. San Francisco envelopes the Pacific Ocean as well as being surrounded by Silicon Valley and wine country! The city itself is home to 43 hills, micro-climates and, of course, the Golden Gate Bridge.

The very best way to appreciate San Francisco is atop one of the many hills, particularly Coit Tower and Land’s End where you can achieve some fantastic panoramic views. San Francisco hosts more farmers markets than any other city in North America, all supplied by local farms, and as a result is a haven for foodies. For those looking to divulge in some top quality wine, a trip out into the surrounding vineyards of Sonoma is a must. San Francisco is a land of opportunity for people of all tastes and is not be missed from anyone’s bucket list.
