The tour was very interesting. The tour driver did a good job explaining things along the route. The hour and a half at Alcatraz was a little short. Saw the entire prison building but missed a lot of other sites on island. Would still recommend the sightseeing tour.

Great tour! Loved driving through the different neighbourhoods of San Francisco and soaking up all the history! Land's end history is really cool and so is the history of the Golden Gate Park!

Alcatraz was spooky and erie at night - would totally recommend it!

Great tour and one of the bucket list things ticked off. Recommend this to anyone. Great that you are the first on the island for the day. The audio tour of Alcatraz was the best I have ever heard. It is amazing and easy to hear and follow.

Totally worth it. I didn't have to drive around and find parking. We were the first one on Alcatraz Island as well. Our tour guide did a great job and was very friendly.
