Great tour! My husband and myself found the tour very helpful to plan where we wanted to spend more time! We certainly enjoyed the Alcatraz tour and would highly recommend it!
my trip to san fransisco was all i expected it to be and more. four fantastic days spent site seeing and eating.my legs were tired and my feet soree after all the hill walking.
Cannot remember our guides name, but was full of information and knowledge of San Fran. and the trip to Alcatraz was amazing, you get the chills walking in there. Would highly recommend this tour.
Enjoyed this tour of Alcatraz and the City, would definitely recommend it. Really enjoyed the audio tour at Alcatraz, realistic sound effects put you right there! They had interesting books in the gift shop of the famous prisoners! You could take your time because there were ferries every 15-20 minutes to take you back. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
This tour proved the perfect launch point for my stay in San Francisco. Everything I saw and did during my time in the city was based on the excellent advice the tour guide shared with our group. I would highly recommend it to any first-time visitor to the city!
A must do really. Get to see all the main sites around SF. Driver was friendly and helpful. Alcatraz you was very informative and worth doing.
Tour was excellent and very informative, smooth transition to Alcatraz tour. Excellent intro to San Francisco.
Another excellent tour, we saw a lot of the city in a quite small time frame. The driver was excellent and gave a good informative commentary on all the various sights and the staff at the tour operators offices were very helpful. The trip across to Alcatraz and round the Island was also very enjoyable. I think on your San Francisco tours site you should advise people that the weather, even during the summer, can be foggy with rather a fresh breeze. It was like this on our tour and even though the sun came out , the Alcatraz trip still proved rather chilly and warmer jacket would have been useful.
I did the city tour/Alcatraz package and it was awesome! The bus driver and tour guide were knowledgeable and friendly. The timing of the Alcatraz embarkation drop-off was perfect and the trip over and tour of Alcatraz were amazing. It does make for a long day, so I would recommend either buying something to eat during the bus tour at one of the few stops or packing something to bring along.
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable and shared with us his love of this great city!
Excellent tour , nice comfortable tour bus and v knowledgeable guide. A definite tour to do.
City Tour was very informative. The bus stopped at a number of sites--allowing you to explore, take pictures, etc. I am glad we did this on our first full day in San Francisco. It gave us information and ideas for some independent site-seeing after the tour was over.
Highly recommend going to Alcatraz!
From booking my trip with Viator (Peter G went the extra mile in customer service when I encountered a time problem) to the actual trip - fantastic.
