A great day. Starting so early meant that the experience of Alcatraz was enhanced by being in the first group on the island and understanding the isolation and beauty of this this place. I had no idea of it's chequered history and will return to spend more time exploring. 2 hours was not enough time. The Cable Car was a great way to see the city and I really enjoyed not walking up and the hills. Lunch was tasty and the tour of the bakery was impressive. Again, found it fascinating to hear the story of this family and business. A fabulous day and still some time to go back and explore more thoroughly places that we passed. Good recommendations from the drive.

Good combination of sites to see, tour length appropriate. We signed up (family of 6) mainly to get first of day boat to Alcatraz, but rest of tour was an added benefit. Lunch was included (sandwich/drink/chips/cookie) which was from local baker and was very good for a box lunch - better than expected. Bakery "tour" seemed boring, we just walked around the pier while we waited and enjoyed that. Guide was very good.

Arturo was our guide for the early VIP tour to Alcatraz and San Francisco. He was professional friendly informative and funny. We thoroughly recommend this tour as it's best to beat the crowds into Alcatraz, which is an experience we will remember as pretty much wow!!! Thanks Arturo.

The audio tour at Alcatraz is very well done. I was glad that I chose the early tour because it was not as crowded and so it was easier to see the exhibits and follow the tour. The rest of the cable car tour was very well done as well. It included more sites than I expected. The tour guide was very good at helping to keep the tour a relaxed and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend this tour - especially at this beginning of your visit to San Francisco - to get familiar with the city and all it has to offer.

Excellent tour, thoroughly recommend for the first boat to Alcatraz and a good tour of SF. Not cheap, but worth the money.

This was a fabulous trip - took us on to Alcatraz early and then we had a wonderful time exploring the city. We had expected more from the bakery part of the tour, as this aspect did not quite live up to how it was represented. Tour guide was accommodating and fun, cable car was great and food provided was plentiful and tasty.

This was by far my favourite tour Viator offered me!!
Seeing Alcatraz was an amazing experience and totally wish I had more time to spend wandering around Alcatraz!
Our tour guide, Arturo, was absolutely fantastic, had a lovely personality and went above and beyond my expectation! Thank you again Arturo!!!
