We went on the evening cruise 5.55pm I think it was, It was great as when we first arrived it was still day light so we got to see all the sights in the day light as well as at night. The tours are very interesting & well worth a visit.
Some of my favourite photos from our 3 week trip to Cali are of S/F. It is now my favourite city I have ever visited. Have an amazing time.
I'l add some photos if I get chance.

I concur with the previous posters that you absolutely do not want to have a car in SF. You don't want to drive in that town, and it will cost you 40 bucks plus per night to park it at your hotel.

We like the Sheraton at Fisherman's Wharf. It is reasonably priced and close to a lot of public transportation and sight seeing options. It has a little outdoor pool, too, although it is usually too cold to swim.

I agree on the City Pass for a first trip. . .It takes you to most of the major sites for a great discount.

I have to agree--the Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf is a lovely hotel, and a fantastic location

WRT Alcatraz, plan in advance, as tickets go fast (many are sold to tour groups in advance). Don't exect to get a ticket day-of, especially on a weekend.

If your baseball fans try to see a SF Giants game at AT&T park. It is a gorgeous park every seat is great!! I love it there. Be sure to try the garlic fries if you go they are amazing. Also I would recommend not staying in the fishermans wharf area it is too touristy. For shopping for your wife either Union Square or Union street. Have a great time.

Enjoyed the Pumpkinmen
Never liked the idea of using a snorkel after someone else

The Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf has a great location, and is close to Ghirardeli Square. Save room for ice cream
