San Francisco, California
We bought this tour because the tickets to Alcatraz as a stand alone tour, were all sold out. We knew our 14 year old son would get a kick out of Ripley's. Ripley's was interesting from his perspective but he didn't love it. He ripped through it in about half an hour. From his parents point of view, it seemed more of a 2-dimensional, old school freak show. Alcatraz, on the other hand, was superb! The self-guided audio tour is narrated by a former guard with input from some former inmates. It was absolutely fascinating. The 3 stars are for the Alcatraz part of the tour. If you can skip Ripley's, your life won't be any worse for having done so.
