Excellent tour. Alcatraz well worth a visit. Tour guide David was really good, informative, amusing and friendly. Went to the best viewing areas and the cable car was great fun. Lunch from Boudins was huge and good quality.

We really enjoyed this tour. The trolley was great fun. Alcatraz lived up to our expectations. The tour guide was great, helpful, friendly and knew everything about San Francisco, even the quirky stuff which we all enjoyed. He also offered throughout the day to take photos of all the couples and groups.
Lunch was really good. If your visiting San Francisco do yourself a favour and book this trip.

The Alcatraz trip was all we expected, however the San Francisco weather misty restricted the views that we had hoped for.

Alcatraz was the best we had 1 1/2 hrs to see this on a tour and not enough time had to rush to meet the ferry for the rest of the tour. See it on your own. With no time limit. It was awesome. Cable car alright.

A great trip, definitely worth visiting Alcatraz early as it gets very busy and you miss the important photo opportunities when more visitors arrive. Great fun in the cable car with Jeff, who was knowledgable and fun, definitely worthwhile, lunch provided was good quality and tasty, top marks

A must do for San Fran! Jamie the tour guide is fantastic. I did the Big Red Bus/Alcatraz tour 4 years ago and this beat it by a long shot. Jamie took us places I've never seen before and this program served Boudin's lunch. We'd do it again in a heartbeat if we come back.

The tour was fantastic. It absolutely hit all the high points of San Francisco and was fun and informative. Alcatraz was amazing. Our guide Arturo was top notch and made the tour a lot of fun. He was very knowledgeable about all pertaining to the beautiful city of San Francisco. Would definitely use viator again in the future!

We had a fabulous time! Our tour guide, Jaime, was incredibly knowledgeable about San Francisco's history. You could tell she is passionate about this city. We could never have covered as much ground on our own. Well worth the cost.

Would recommend this It is very informative and to see how they lived. Got to see a lot of San Fransisco on this tour. Views very nice but there was a lot of fog about. The only thing was that the weather was very cold but they gave us blankets for our legs to keep warm. Had a fun day on this trip.
