Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the San Francisco Hop-on Hop-off Ticket and Alcatraz Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
It was well organized, and included everything we wanted to see in San Francisco.
We were a little skeptical about booking with Viator at first but it worked out amazingly for us, There was some confusion at first as to what pier we needed to be at, Once that was sorted the trip began, It was a boat over to the Island and then a quick brief - Then you were pretty much left to your own devices with a headset to walk around the prison area with, The sound effects and detail were absolutely fantastic - Almost real in fact - It was very airy too. You could spend as much time as you wanted on the Island which meant nothing was rushed - We were their for about 4 hours and didn't get board once - Id definitely go back too, What an experience. Glad we can say we have been there - done that and got the T.Shirt Literately - Highly Recommended - One of our West Coast trip highlights.
this was the second time I have done this tour and I have enjoyed it both times , I would recommend it to anyone
Found the tour was efficiently organised and an enjoyable experience!
United States of America
Excellent tour. Very organized and pleasant staff.
Alcatraz what an experience then to have the flexibility of the 48 hour hop on hop off ticket is the way to see the sights and get your prospective of San Francisco. Highly recommend
We totally enjoyed our tour. Both days we had the singing tour guide, whose knowledge of the City combined with his vocal interpretations enhanced our tour and provided musical references which enable us to continue to remember the information provided. Bravo!
Alcatraz trip was brilliant and the audio guide superb, it really brought the place to life.
We were not prepared, clothing wise. for the bus tour. Part was on an open sided bus and the wind off the ocean especially over the Golden Gate Bridge was cutting so be prepared.
The tour covered most of the City but was a bit rushed and the guides varied in quality of presentation so it is pot luck on who you get.
Best to study the City before you go so that you make the most of the stops. The bus ticket lasts 2 days so is good value.
The hop on hope off tour together with alcatraz tickers was excellent and we'll worth the money. The bus route takes you to all the interesting parts of the city while the guide explains the history and what to look out for. Would be next to impossible to do by yourself via public transporter car.
Great trip, well organised and friendly. Tour was informative and interesting and our guide was very funny also! Would highly recommend this tour : )
The whole experience was brilliant... Good guides,good sights,good fun......excellent!!
Il tuor audio, con lingua a scelta, è davvero incredibile....con suoni realistici....sembre di vivere la vera prigione!!! Amazing!!!!
Fantastic trip on the bus then Alcatraz.
Must mention our tour guide Marquis. He was the San Francisco rapper with great music! Made our tour hugely entertaining.
The Alcatraz tour was very interesting and informative and we enjoyed every minute of it. The CellBlock tour was excellent and the guides were very helpful.
Wonderful. Great way to see the city. Alcatraz was a great take in.
the bus was easily accessible and the guides were informative of each of each of the stops and the neighborhoods that we drove through.
Have visited Alcatraz while in San Francisco previously and it didn't disappoint! This visit though, we were able to walk around the gardens and within the recreation area. It is definately a favorite.
Would recommend this package - good deal for the $$ and gets a person to where they want to go or not and just stay seated and enjoy the view :)
This tour was almost my entire reason for visiting San Fran and it didnt disappoint. You really really need to book your trip to Alcatraz. We went in July 14 and there was only standby if you hadnt booked, people were queing for over three hours to get on a ferry. the next bookable tours were September! You get the trip across and the tour of Alcatraz then time for you to do your own thing before you come back. There is no set return time so you can spend as long as you like up to the last ferry. Our party was myself, hisband and two teenage girls and we all really liked it.
Excellent. Great way to guarantee Alcatraz tickets, ours were for 2:40 so got to do a full loop on the bus - wear warm clothes if you are on the top deck going over the Golden Gate. Alcatraz is a must do.
