Amigos Big Bus Chinatown Walking Tour


Chinatown Walking Tour:

$40+ Value. ~ 1-Hour

Included as an Optional Bonus with Alcatraz Packages

Surrounding the original town center and oldest part of the City, Chinatown will appeal to your love of both the old and the new. You’ll see the crowded and bustling open-air meat and produce markets of Stockton Street; visit side alleyways that will take you back in time; and discover lions, dragons, pagoda roofs, and dangling lanterns along the ever-colorful Grant Street.

Wear walking shoes. Be prepared to walk uphill (some inclines, but not San Francisco's craziest). This tour departs from the corner of Union Square, at Geary and Powell Streets. Stop 6 on the Big Bus map.

Tour operates daily:

• November – March at 1:00pm 

• April – October at 11:00am & 1:00pm

The Ferry ride from Pier 33 takes 10-15 minutes to get to Alcatraz. 

This is the infamous prison – where you can even go inside cells and experience the cold and stark surroundings firsthand. Alcatraz served as a federal penitentiary from 1933 to 1963, where notorious criminals like Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly, and Creepy Karpis were held. The award-winning 45-minute cell house audio headset tour will captivate you with escape attempts, riots, bizarre characters, and much more. Displays include prison life, guard controls, and how three men made their famous “Escape From Alcatraz.” 

Alcatraz remains extremely popular. 

  • Video History Presentation – No Charge
  • Audio Tour includes sound effects, interviews with prisoners and guards, and historic details
  • Bookstore with information in many languages
  • Visit the prison Recreation Yard, talk with Park Rangers, and walk the Perimeter Trail
  • Unlimited photo opportunities and great views looking back at the City or out to the Golden Gate Bridge

The Red and White Fleet Bay Cruise offers one fabulous view after another.

You’ll sail past the city skyline, including views of downtown, Fort Mason, the Marina district, Fort Point, and Presidio National Park. You’ll take in the imposing Golden Gate Bridge from below and creep up along the back of Alcatraz Island. Background views of Sausalito, Tiburon, and Angel Island add to the appeal. 

With the optional audio headset, you can learn about this city’s rich cultural history as you cruise past some of the area’s most famous landmarks. 

Offered in 16 languages. 

No Hotel Pickup. 

No reservations needed. 

Multiple departures daily. 

Current Schedule here.

Voucher valid for any sailing within 365 days from your date of purchase, just arrive at Pier 43 ½ at Fisherman’s Wharf 30 minutes prior to your preferred sailing time. 


Be sure to dress warmly for the outside decks. Depending on the forecast, consider hats, jackets, layers, and even gloves. San Francisco is known to have cool evening weather and being out on the water will only magnify things. But it’s more fun to be soaking up the views and the great atmosphere than it is to worry about being underdressed. 

Upon purchase, you will receive an email Voucher showing your purchase. The Voucher will need to be presented on your phone at the Red & White ticket window at Pier 43&½. 

Until further notice, you have to get a short-term reservation. This is usually for the next boat, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, they are limiting departure capacity. This means that you may have to wait for a second departure (which may not be available at the very end of the day).

Tours are free for kids under age 5.
