It's got to be seen to be believed....

The City by the Bay is just about everyone's favourite American city. San Francisco delights in being different from its California neighbours. Even the climate, frequent fog in summer and rain in winter, belies the state's image for golden beaches and sunshine. Quaint small-scale streets, superb restaurants and extensive parks afford a European air and turreted houses line pretty tree lined avenues. If times allows, be sure to hire a bike and ride across the Golden Gate Bridge (call Bon Voyage to pre book your Bike Across The Bridge, spaces fill fast!)
A full day at leisure to experience the many sights of this delightful city.
