Cal-Train to SF tourist spots

Jump to last reply

We're weighing the option of staying near Palo Alto and taking the train into the city for a couple of tour days. If we do this - how tricky is it to get our family of 5 to the tourist sites from where the train lets off? How safe is this option? Since it would be June, I expect us to be ready to depart from the city before dark as we're East Coast and our bodies and brains will be 3 hours ahead of the clock then.

In the city we want to do the Alcatraz tour and we are thinking of a city tour company that does the 3 to 4 hour tours.
