Then be whisked off to the famed Twin Peaks to take in the breathtaking views and learn how to capture sweeping panoramic photographs, one of Jacobs’ specialties. Indulge in a local lunch before you criss-cross town with Jacobs, as he shows guests unique perspectives of famous landmarks including Lombard Street, The Painted Ladies, Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf. By sunset, head to the Golden Gate Bridge to capture the golden light shimmering off the Pacific Ocean and create perfect landscape photographs, confident of your own pictorial prowess. Advanced booking is required and is subject to availability to capture memories from the trip to last a lifetime. Experience is approximately six hours.
