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.
Would not have missed this trip to Alcatraz. It was very informative and very well organised.
The hop on hop off bus experience was not quite so well organised. Slight lack of information regarding times etc. We did have one very well informed and helpful guide. The star rating is mainly for the Alcatraz trip. I would rate the hop on hop off experience with a three star rating.
If you take this tour, make sure you ask for "Willie". He is one of the best tour guides I have seen, with his witty color commentary! Makes the ride fun!
San Francisco is a great city and this tour brings out the best of the city, and what it offers. Alcatraz was fantastic! Great views of the island, the city, and an audio tour of the prison. Would take tour again!
This is definitely the tour to book if you want to see San Francisco in a short space of time. The hop on and off was great and the guide we had the first day was fantastic (Willie) and gave us loads of detailed info on the city, it's history, best shops restaurants etc. .. The trip to Alcatraz w amazing but try to get a morning tour if possible as you will want and need to spend at least three hours , we had the afternoon trip and the last boat from the island was at half four so we felt rushed but still a brilliant thing to experience. Would use Viator again for booking trips when on holidays.
Alcatraz is a must see! The audio tour is incredible. This probably one of my all time favorite tours.
trip was excellent from start to finnish hop on hop off bus was great information about the city.
alcatraz was amazing would recomend this trip
Brilliant combo and the commentary on the buses is AMAZING! Especially Willy haha glad I got heaps of his tour on video :) Fully recommend this tour
Stress free! We bought these tickets ahead of time and had a wonderful time at San Fran. You take the Alcatraz tour on your first day after visiting the Tour bus main office where they hand you your tickets and give you the time of your tour. We got to see all we wanted.
Fantastic. Would definitely do it again and book through yourselves. Glad I booked it before I went as really busy.
Prebooked this tour before we went and glad we did as it was sold out when we arrived so tip is to plan ahead! We spent approx 3 1/2 hours on the island including boating time.
The boat over to the island was a smooth ride and very well organised. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would certainly recommend.
I would suggest if you want to watch the video that is shown as beginning of tour to wait until later as everyone on the boat seemed to go in there first thing and you could not see much or hear much of it!
Well organised tour. Had a fantastic time. Exceeded our expectations.
