Favourite 5 things to do in ( or around) San Francisco ?

So doing a feasibility study on a trip to New York for a few days then flying to Vegas to start a road trip through Death Valley to Yosemite to San Fran and down the Pacific coast highway before flying home

For each place / area , I will be asking for your 5 favourite / must do things
Starting with this one in San Francisco

So please put your favourite 5 things to do, in ranking order if possible
It would be useful if you could put an approx time required , and approx cost per person

If there is anything you think is over-hyped or a waste of money , please let me know

And anything that was a bit of a little known gem that you were really glad you did

Looking forward to all your suggestions

Top 5 as I see it right now.

1. Dylans ultimate tour.. cycle past Girardelli, over the bridge and down to Sausalito before a minibus trip up to Muir Woods and then a lift back in to San Francisco over the bridge... Done it, loved it.

2. Alcatraz. Iconic and unusually for me, I loved the audio guide. Loved it and doing it and going again at Easter. $159 for 4 of us

3. The love tour. 2 hrs in an air cooled, hand painted VW Camper, complete with Shag Pile Carpets and 1960s music as it tours SFO including Haight Ashbury. Doing it at Easter. $180 for 4 of us.

4. Powell Cable Car up to Union Sq. An absolute scream with a great comedy performance by the driver. $14 each for one way?

5. The Sealions at Pier 39. Free

Also really looking forward to the San Francisco evening ghost hunt walking tour of the Nob Hill area. $84 for the four of us.
