Alcatraz was AWESOME!!! Did not care for Ripley's. Pair up Alcatraz with something else like the Aquariam

Alcatraz is awesome. Lots of history. Ripley is OK. The Maze is not that hard. Great time overall. Special thanks to the Ripley manager for giving me the tickets to Alcatraz early then It was supposed to (9:45 am) so we didn't have to run to catch the Alcatraz ferry (10:00 am).

Ripleys was great but I definately recommend it for older children we have three small ones and they looked at alot of things but were not to interested in spending to much time reading the items. Alcatraz was awesome but again not super easy with small children. I would love to go back to both again without the little ones. If you are looking for something to do with little kids check out the discovery museum by the bay that was awesome.

We loved Alcatraz - make sure you wear layers - it was cold on the boat and outside on the Island even though it was July. Ripley's was interesting if you like weird trivia. The kids went through it very quickly though.

We loved the tour and time spent on Alcatraz. Ripley's was fun to see all the interesting items. We lived in Bay Area during 1989 earthquake and to see the car crushed during that event at the entrance brought back a lot of memories.

There are some neat things to see at Ripley's. It is a place to visit once.

We bought this tour because the tickets to Alcatraz as a stand alone tour, were all sold out. We knew our 14 year old son would get a kick out of Ripley's. Ripley's was interesting from his perspective but he didn't love it. He ripped through it in about half an hour. From his parents point of view, it seemed more of a 2-dimensional, old school freak show. Alcatraz, on the other hand, was superb! The self-guided audio tour is narrated by a former guard with input from some former inmates. It was absolutely fascinating. The 3 stars are for the Alcatraz part of the tour. If you can skip Ripley's, your life won't be any worse for having done so.

Alcatraz tour was really worth it. We had a good time and the audio session was very educational. Did not think the Ripley's Believe it or Not admission was worth the price.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this

Too expensive. We payed 250 $ for 4 people (2 adults and 2 children) It is not worth seeing the museum.
