I have read just about everything I can on tours and timing......here is my question for you.....arriving in October on a Monday evening around 9 pm, too late to do anything but go to the hotel. Tuesday morning, take the tour to Monterey, Carmel and the 17 mile drive....this is 11 hours. Wednesday morning.....we would like to take the tour to see the Muir Woods and Sausalito......here is where it gets tricky.... part of this tour can be either Alcatraz or the city tour, both are 8 hours. We leave the next day at 1350 and could possibly do either Alcatraz or the city tour that morning, but really don't know if there would be enough time. So, what I thought might be a good idea, would be to go ahead and do Alcatraz with the tour and then maybe hire a cab or private tour guide, if there are any, to do some city sights on the way to the airport. What does everything think.....or alternative suggestions welcome! Thank you!
