Description

Take a look back through California's history with a pair of outings to some very different Bay Area icons on two separate days. A drive up to the wine country of Sonoma County lets you explore the home of the region's most sophisticated industry, while a trip to Alcatraz shows you one of America's most famous prisons.

Sonoma County & Sausalito Tour After a stop for some pictures of the Golden Gate bridge as you head out of town, your guide lets you in on a few secrets of winemaking in the Sonoma Valley. Visit a local winery to see the region's signature business firsthand and learn about the process behind perfecting the famous taste.

Next, you head to Sonoma's historic town center. Get some free time to explore the downtown and the old Franciscan mission before you complete the tour in the waterfront town of Sausalito, with some great views of beautiful San Francisco Bay.

Alcatraz Day Trip A ferry ride across the bay brings you to the island that held one of America's most legendary prisons. Once you've arrived, you can explore at your own pace to get a firsthand look at the former federal penitentiary and feel the dark mystique that still looms over the Rock.

While you look at the rows of old cell doors, a 45-minute audio presentation brings back the voices of inmates and guards from the prison's active days. Learn the stories of inmates like Al Capone and “Birdman” Robert Stroud whose incarceration made the prison into a kind of cultural icon.
