City Tour & Escape from the Rock Cruise
The next best option is the Escape from the Rock Cruise. This 1.5-hour tour sails under the Golden Gate Bridge and then circumnavigates Alcatraz twice.
Hear sound effects and intriguing stories about Capone, Billy Cook the Killer and Clyde Johnson’s Alcatraz escape attempt. Through the tour's engaging narration, go back in time to the days when this maximum-security prison was the most feared institution in the American penal system.
Please note: the City Tour & Escape from the Rock Cruise does NOT include a ticket to Alcatraz.
Great Tour on time and prompt. Courteous staff, clean tour bus and all great allover.
Had a wonderful, knowledgeable tour guide!! Such a talented man who knew so much about San Francisco. I would highly recommend this tour!
We had a great time and learned so much about San Francisco.
Fabulous day! Antonio looked after us and showed us all the beautiful spots in San Francisco.
Very professional tour company with extremely educational tour guides. Great tour for first time visitors but lots of information that locals may not be aware of either. Highly recommended.
This was an excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide and excellent driver.
It was an amazing day. We had a very informative driver and then we finished off with the tour of Alcatraz. Our 13 year old daughter found Alcatraz very interesting and we enjoyed the recorded commentary. We definitely recommend this tour to others.
Amazing great tour worked perfectly for our trip .Loved Alcatraz. Well done !
The trip was worth the money. Very enjoyable
very good but a bit of a palaver with the bus to the ferry terminal. We awaited for ages to be driven round the corner. if we had known it was so close we would have walked.
