My family and I had a wonderful time!! This trip was worthwhile. I highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide Arturo was very knowledgeable with the area and places that he took us to visit! We really enjoyed getting to know him :-). The early access to Alcatraz was great. We were able to avoid any type of crowds. The audio tour at Alcatraz was very interesting. The bakery was really neat and the sandwiches were delicious. Overall a fantastic time!!

Great tour - included touring the city of San Francisco, Alcatraz, Boudin Bakery (including an ample lunch), Palace of fine Arts, the presidio and the Golden Gate bridge from both sides.

The driver was very informative, friendly and accommodating and provided a fun tour.

I enjoyed the whole day and would highly recommend

This tour was amazing, there were so many extras that we didn't realise would happen. Firstly the trip to Alcatraz was incredible, definitely make sure you pick up the audio tour. It is so well thought out and not too long! Lunch was delicious too! Our guide was brilliant, so knowledgeable. Do it!!

Amazing tour! wish we had a little more time to explore the Alcatraz grounds but overall an awesome experience for the whole family. My 11 year old had such a great time learning about the Alcatraz history. She even bought a book at the gift shop and had it autographed by the author! The tour guide was fun and very considerate to everyone's needs. Lunch was yummy too!!! Would do it again without question!

It was a very nice tour especially to start early with the first ferry to Alcatraz, but 1 hour and 40 minutes on this island is way to short; we had only time for the audio-tour in the prisoncomplex; furthermore the receipt on Boudins bakery was not clear; no one expected us there for any explanation and we had to find out ourselves what to do and see; the tour-guide on the cable-car was a very nice man and gave detailed explanation of what was to see all over the city

It was very well organised and showed us parts of the town that the bigger companies don't do. Highly recommended
