Alcatraz sold out?
City Tour & Escape from the Rock Cruise
When Alcatraz is sold out, book the next best option and upgrade your city tour to include the Escape from the Rock Cruise. This 90-minute bay cruise sails under the Golden Gate Bridge and then circles Alcatraz twice allowing you to get up close and see every angle of this mysterious island.
You’ll hear chilling accounts of harrowing escape attempts by Alcatraz’s notorious criminals as well as their descriptions of the brutality of life on the island. This special San Francisco bay cruise featuring sound effects and intriguing stories about Capone, Billy Cook the Killer, Clyde Johnson’s Alcatraz escape attempt and many more, will take you back 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 well worth the money. The 3.5 hour coach tour was very enjoyable and seemed to fly by. We stopped at landmark locations and had plenty of time for photos. The driver of the coach was very informative and gave us useful information. The trip to Alcatraz was great too.....the ferry there and back was very punctual and the audio tour was good. This is the 2nd trip I have booked through Viator and I wouldn't hesitate to book with them again. Very happy customer :-)
Great tour they take you to so many great places to see I got some terrific photos, would recommend this tour
