Excellent tour both of us thoroughly enjoyed both Alcatraz and Sightseeing tour. As a suggestion we believe that the time on Alcatraz should be an hour longer as this would allow more time to see everything. A number of people on our tour opted out of sightseeing tour to allow more time on Alcatraz. If time extended on Alcatraz there would still be enough time for sightseeing tour if trip over Golden Gate Bridge removed. We did not go over the Golden Gate Bridge as traffic way too bad.

Very early pick up in Union square by (motorised cable car) tour through streets to pier to board ferry to the island. very eerie place but very interesting. Then back on ferry to visit special bakery and have packed lunch on the cable car. Then journey to Golden Gate Bridge. When we went over it very sunny, by time we had parked on other side it was covered in fog! Very interesting sightseeing trip in unusual transport driver very very good.

This was a great way to see San Francisco and Alcatraz. The tour guide was friendly and informative. You get a tour of SF before going to see Alcatraz. You get plenty of time to see all of Alcatraz. After that you get lunch and a further tour of SF and the bay area. I suggest you book in advance otherwise you will miss out. Highly recommend.

Alcatraz was fantastic. Regardless of the crowds you are able to zone out using the audio tour and picture yourself as an inmate or a prison guard.
Cable Car sighseeing, our guide was knowledgable and friendly.
Had a fantastic time.

Excellent tour, first ones on to Alcatraz without to many people, tour guide on motorised cable car was brilliant, light breakfast of cereal bar and soft drink and lunch consisted of a boudin bakery sandwich, Doritos and water, the crossing of the Golden Gate Bridge was fab with plenty of time given for taking wonderful photos. Very informative tour with plenty of humor, our tour guide was Jeff, nothing to much trouble, credit to the company but beware of his cheesey jokes lol, would book it again. Just one small thing would have preferred an extra 1/2-3/4 hour longer on the rock to be able to wonder around after the prison audio tour.

Our tour was excellent, weather conditions were perfect. Our guide was very knowledgeable and went the extra mile. The lunch was very filling and you had a choice. The only downside was that we could have had slightly more time on Alcatraz, but it was a memorable trip, thank you.

An excellent tour, especially for the first connecting ferry to Alcatraz.(with this you are one of the first on the "Rock" at the start of the day) The tour guide on the day was very informative with the different place's and information give on the tour as we went around, the "lunch box" meal was great and very fulling. there are plenty of stop's for Photos etc as well, over all this tour was excellent over all and the lovely warm day made it even better..........Highly Recommended
