Many tourists visiting a new city like to head straight to the places they have seen in the movies or read about and then look for other things on offer. When Dermott arrived in San Francisco for the first time, he decided to see what else was on offer apart from the Golden Gate Bridge.
Half-way down the Californian coast, San Francisco is one of north America’s most exciting cities and Dermott joined an Intrepid guide for a local’s eye view, as well as taking in iconic sights. Public transport is plentiful in San Francisco making getting around easy – particularly the cable cars that climb the city’s steep hills.
