NORTH AMERICA TRAVEL SERVICE

California | San Francisco

Experience the rich cultural life of San Francisco, one of the world’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities. The many hills of the city afford visitors plenty of perfect views over San Francisco Bay. The entrance to the Bay is spanned by the famous Golden Gate Bridge. Take a walk across it - well over a mile - and enjoy a gull’s eye view of the shipping traffic passing far below. Visit Golden Gate Park, over 1000 acres of lawns, lakes and a riot of flora. No visit to San Francisco can be complete if it doesn’t include Fisherman’s Wharf and Union Square.
