San Francisco, California

My Rating

My Review
A highly recommended tour. We had to ring and confirm our tour the day before which presented no problems - our hotel did that for us. The luxurious coach collected us on time and took us to the company's central office, near Fishermans' Wharf. Here we confirmed our tour and departed on the same coach as picked us up. The driver was extremely knowledgable and courteous. The tour started at 10am and took us all around San Francisco, stooping at points of real interest. 25 minutes at the Golden Gate and time at Twin Peaks which gave a great view over the whole of the city. After the tour, we were taken to the pier for the boat to Alcatraz included in the price. This proved to be an extremely interesting visit to the former prison. On arrival, we were given an audio headset which delivered a super commentary on the history of the prision, the daily routine of prisoners and the more infamous inmates. We departed on the last boat out of Alcatraz at 4pm arriving at the Wharf at 4.30pm. We were given a choice of what to do next, either do our own thing or collect a bus at 5pm which would have taken us back to our hotel. A highly entertaining day and extremely good value. Thank you.
