We booked this tour for the next day after our arrival and it being an afternoon/evening tour this was good so that we knew where we were going. The Alcatraz visit was fascinating and gave plenty of time to take the audio tour and look around afterwards at your leisure. The second part of the tour meant getting to a different wharf to catch the bay cruise but there was plenty of time to get there after the boat from Alcatraz had docked (your return time is open but departure time specific so be careful you don't overstay!). The cruise out under the golden gate and back around Alcatraz down to AT and T park (home of the San Francisco Giants Baseball team for non-Americans or lovers of the game) was great and the food of decent quality and plentiful. The musician on board was entertaining depending on your musical preferences but not to everyone's taste. We returned to the pier with the boat travelling directly into the sun setting behind the Golden Gate Bridge and it luckily being a crystal clear day the images were magnificent. I would highly recommend this trip.
Alcatraz was the highlight if my trip, made even more special meeting the last survivor ing prisoner who served time there. Could not fault the evening cruise under Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge. Had a singer to entertain on top deck and a very lovely spread laid out, with lots left. WONDERFUL!!
We all like it, we did the audio tour, the kids in our group went looking around after the audio tour.
Brilliant tour...great value for money and first rate email trail. Well worth it. My wife and I really enjoyed both day and evening tours.

Hubby had just returned form a deployment so I was looking to wow him when he returned... SCORE for the Sargent's wife! The trip to the "rock" was a blast, we enjoyed the little hike and the educational audio tour equally, the view was lovely! Got back in time for a little hot coco and "QT" before leaving on the sunset cruise which was a nice break for both of us. The night cruise was a great wind down to the day, a free glass of wine and a light bite to eat topped off with the live one man band and his guitar- it was a perfect day/night and we couldn't stop smiling and talking about it the day after. We recommend this tour 100%
We didn't get to go to jail because of the gov. Shut down but had a wonderful evening sail. The weather was great. We also enjoyed the food and there was plenty of it. Thank u for refunding the jail part of the tour. We know it was not your fault. We will use your services again.
My husband and myself loved this tour. Alcatraz was a 20 minute ferry ride. The audio tour was well explained with a lot of time to go through prison. The tour ends in the gift store. We waited a short time to take Ferry back to San Fran. Once back its maybe a 15 mins walk to the next Pier for our Ferry ride of Bay. There was time for us to have a snack and drink. Just be aware of the time of year you take the sunset tour of bay. It was dark by the time we got to Golden Gate Bridge so we didn't get a great view. On the plus side, we had wine, food, and great entertainment ! All in all a great tour !
The food on the sunset sail was really enough to be called dinner! Wonderful way to experience san fran!
Great fun, good learning experience on Alcatraz and a stunning sunset cruise
The cruise and Alcatraz was faboulous, I highly recomended it, and I could change the viator voucher without any problem, BUT, i looked up for the actual prices of the 2 thiings and together adds 88 dollars, so Viator cost me 11 dollars more that if I pucrchased the tickets myself. That is called a rip -off.
El crucero y la visita a Alcatraz son geniales, e imperdibles. Realmente los reconmiendo, y pude cambiar los vouchers sin ningun tipo de problemas, Sin embargo, cuando estuve allí vi los precios reales del crucero más alcatraz (exactamente los mismos que tomé), y la suma de ambos era 88 dólares, 11 dólares menos que el paquete de Viator, me sentí estafado.
The audio tour of Alcatraz was excellent. The cruise of the Harbour was so much better than we expected and so was the food - we certainly didn't need any dinner afterwards.
