What You Can Expect
Likely to Sell-out! Alcatraz regularly sells out weeks in advance. Book ahead of time to avoid disappointment.

Alcatraz sold out?
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.

This tour was amazing!
This tour was amazing . Our guide, Adolpho, was great. He was so informative and gave us time to see alot of San Francisco. We also enjoyed our Alcatraz tour, even though we didn and #39;t have tickets to get on the island due to tickets being sold out, we still enjoyed the boat ride around the bay. Awesome
Fantastic city tour dreamt tour guide and the Alcatraz tour must not be missed
A great day in San Fran!
Die City Tour ist leider nur vom Bus aus. Man sieht zwar viel, hat jedoch keine Möglichkeit tolle Bilder zu machen. Alcatraz ist sehr interessant, hier hat man die Zeit vor Ort zu seiner freien Verfügung und auch so lang man möchte. Jedoch werden Menschen Massen durchgeschoben.
Great and informative. A must do.
This tour is a must for anyone visiting San Francisco - don't leave it till you get there to book Alcatraz as you will probably miss out - these tickets go so fast when you are there, we booked this a few months before we travelled. The city tour was really interesting and it took you all over the various area's and up to twin peaks for some amazing ariel shots of the city. Would definitely recommend this tour to you. The bus company used is Greyline Tours - they were so helpful and nothing was any trouble. Very informative and friendly staff.
FANTASTIC!! Telling all my friends and family to book Viator tours wherever they travel
It was truly amazing
