We had a wonderful time. All our booked tickets were waiting for us, no hassle at all. Mr. Richmond at the main office was great and made us feel welcomed. The tour guides were all fantastic. If we ever go back to San Francisco we will use them again and will not hesitate to recommed them to our friends and family.
I had wanted to visit Alcatraz for decades and this trip delivered all that I hoped it would - All elements of the trip fell into place like clockwork and thoroughly enjoyed the trip to The Rock. The HO HO Bus was excellent - all drivers had there own style of dlivering commentary and all were great in there own ways - we have done HO HO Buses in a number of cities and have never been disappointed with the service given - this was easily worth the money I paid and will definitely use these type of Buses again.
this is one of the top tours our clients choose when offered a day in SF
TOUR OF ALCATRAZ WAS INTERESTING AND INFORMATIVE. ALL TOUR BUS DRIVERS WERE VERY UPBEAT, COURTEOUS AND A PLEASURE TO HAVE MET. GOOD VALUE FOR THE MONEY.
Hop on hop off tour was just what we needed with short time in San Francisco, we got to see all the major areas without having to worry about public transport. The Alcatraz option was great as the trips were all sold out so it was well worth having this booked in advance, cost was very reasonable too.
Best decision a ever made.We found out things about San Francisco we didin't know and saw places we didin't know existed. And very friendly service.
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.
