San Francisco, California
This was a very exciting tour for our family to take. We were very happy with the overall package. There is a great insight of the way off life for both the inmates and the correctional offices that served there.
We were lucky enough to meet an author there that had spent time on the rock as a child due to her father working there. I did not realise that the families of the correctional services officers lived on the island as well.
She gave me some insight of the morning of the escaped 3 men that were never found.
Excellent bookshop and souvenirs available.
We also finished of our day after Alcatraz with a simple 10 minute walk to fisherman's wharf for dinner.
Overall a excellent experience.
New York City, New York
It is one of those sites that you have to visit once in New York. Very hard to get a clear day so expect smog conditions through summer. great view of the new freedom tower and statue of liberty in the far right background.
it is quicker to walk the stairs if you are able to from the 80th to the 86th floor. It takes only 3-5 minutes compared to 20 minute wait for the elevator due to the crowds. Expect a crowd. It is very busy up there on the 86th floor.
