"We believe that when walking you really experience the heart and soul of an area"
Glen Ellen, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
Wine Country Trekking, LLC is pleased to introduce its first urban trek, the San Francisco Bay and Islands Trek. This self-guided inn-to-inn walking vacation starts in the heart of San Francisco, traverses historic neighborhoods, crosses the Golden Gate Bridge, and visits Sausalito, Tiburon, and the bay wetlands before finishing on the San Francisco waterfront. It includes ferry rides on the bay, exploring Alcatraz and Angel Islands, fabulous lodging, and gourmet meals.
This active luxury vacation is a unique way to experience the vibrant history and beautiful bay of San Francisco, the “City by the Bay”. “Most visitors to San Francisco only see the city from a tour bus or taxi,” said Mary Guerrazzi, a partner in the company. “We believe that when walking you really experience the heart and soul of an area. This trek gives San Francisco visitors that opportunity that no other company offers.” As with all Wine Country treks, this vacation takes advantage of San Francisco’s world class dining by having travelers stay in first class lodging within walking distance of some of the area’s most famous and highly rated restaurants.
The trek is all on foot, with beautiful ferry rides on San Francisco Bay to explore the islands. Alcatraz Island is the site of the infamous prison known as “The Rock”, and Angel Island was the immigration entry point for the west coast, or the “Ellis Island” of the west. Both islands are parks as well, with beautiful 360 degree views of San Francisco and the bay. “This trek was inspired by our customers who love our active vacations,” said Mary Guerrazzi, “and asked us if anything was available with more time to explore San Francisco and the surrounding area. This trek allows our customers to enjoy San Francisco without any traffic, taxis, or tour buses while experiencing luxury on foot.”
The San Francisco Bay and Islands Trek, like all vacations, or treks, offered by Wine Country Trekking, is a luxury European style self-guided inn-to-inn walking vacation, an award winning concept that the company introduced in the United States. Building on the success of this concept, the company has added short vacations exclusively in the wine country, runner’s vacations, and now this one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore more deeply one of the greatest cities in the world, the “City by the Bay”, San Francisco.
