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.

Excellent!!
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 :)
thank you

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.

A great way to see plenty of a fantastic city. Each tour guide has their own unique style which makes it fun. Alcatraz was an amazing piece of history to learn

Loved San Francisco ... even though it was cold ... the tour was excellent ... got to see so much ... even through the fog, which did lift around mid day ... and including Alcatraz was so worth it ... the ferry ride across was lovely ... and the tour around Alcatraz was very moving and informative ... definitely recommend this tour!
