We loved this tour. The audio commentary was the best we have experienced.
Arturo was an amazing tour guide. Would definitely recommend this tour and would definitely take my visitors on it again. Thank you Arturo for being so friendly with my kids and I!
Arturo was our guy. Had lots of info to share. Enjoyed our trip to Alcatraz. Doing it first thing was the only way to see it. We had a perfect day for viewing the Golden Gate Bridge.
Excellent! Our guide was superb and gave us a marvellous experience. We did this on our second day of a 5 day stay and he introduced us to the city in the best way possible. He took us to the best spots to get the most amazing photos of the Golden Gate Bridge and other landmarks. Arturo's love of the city, his knowledge and above all his superb people skills all combine to make this an extraordinary experience - don't miss it!
Jamie was a fantastic tour guide and took us to many places in the city we would not have seen without her. This was the perfect tour for our entire family. We highly recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your trip to get a good overview of the city.
Great especialy the agent or driver. Very funny , very helpfull and exceed expectation. This was the best tour of the whole vacation and she made the dfference.
Good trip, sandwich lunch
Good trip. not quite what I expected having to queue for the boat to Alcatraz. Alcatraz was wonderful. The guide our driver was excellent and went out of his way to make the trip enjoyable. Loved the visit to Fort Point lovely scenery and the lunch was good.
This was fun and informative. Our guide Arturo was very informative during the tour around town and gave helpful information for the Alcatraz tour. Great and fun tour.
Jamie was our tour guide/driver. She was AWESOME! Very knowledgable and humorous! We really enjoyed the entire experience! Jaimie Rocks!!!!! My daughter and I rode up front and got a great view of everything!
This was THE best tour ever! Arturo did an amazing job getting us around in the not so great weather of San Francisco. The cable car was so cool and getting to Alcatraz early was priceless! He gave us insight on getting around on the grounds and fully enjoying the experience. Lunch was nice and the drive over the Golden Gate Bridge and fort area underneath it was especially a nice, uncrowded visit. The Palace of Fine Arts was an unexpected pleasure, such a beautiful area!
Overall it was totally a 5 star experience in a great city!!
Really enjoyed this day, it as well worth getting to Alcatraz early as by 10am you could hardley move in the prion block. To have that time with very few people around allowed you to move around freely, and take photos undisturbed. Then the afternoon city tour was great fun and our guide was wvery knowledgable and obviously loved his city - thoroughly recommend this.
Arturo was the best tour guide! Full of information and great stories about the city! He gave us tips to maximize our time on Alcatraz which proved to be very helpful During our other sight seeing stops in the rain he patiently took great pictures of all of us! I would take a tour with him again!
WE WERE EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH THE COMPLETE TOUR. THE WEATHER DID NOT COOPERATE, RAINED THE WHOLE TIME, BUT WHAT THE HECK YOU ARE ON VACATION. THE TOUR CANNOT CONTROL THAT.
Nothing short of outstanding. The trolley ride actually a bus that fully resembles a trolley was comfortable, timely and took us to sights beyond what the tour offered. Alcatraz is a must see. Really cool. Do yourself a favor and take the first ferry out to the island. You will not regret. Arturo was the trolley/bus guide and knew his city and planning very well, not to mention an extremely careful driver in a difficult terrain. We saw the bridge and many sights that ordinarily we would have missed. Arturo was very well informed and a nice gentleman. Highly, highly recommend. We were a small crowd, but this made the trip all the more worth it!!!
Excellent trip , we saw everything and spent loads of time making sure we got time to spend at each location. We had Jamie and she was fabulous. Highly recommend this tour xxx
This has got to be one of the best tours we have ever been on. The early access meant we were the first boat over, beating the heat and the later crowds. The audio tour was fabulous. Former inmates and guards did the information. They directed you step by step, and gave you a real representation of what it was like. Afterwards, there was plenty of time to explore the rest of the grounds, including the gardens. The cable car was fun. A lot of the information was repeated, as we did the Muir Woods and Sausalito tour, but was a neat way to get around town.
This was an AMAZING tour! We were on our Anniversary and first time visitors of San Francisco. From the first meeting and introduction, Jamie made my husband and I feel like family. She's sincere, professional, and passionate about her customers. She gave us the tour and history of the area and made sure we knew where to meet up after the Alcatraz tour. After the tour we enjoyed a great lunch and conversation with our tour guide. As far as Alcatraz? I highly recommend the audio tour because you can pace yourself and not feel like you're at the mercy of your a guide. Also, you can really feel the full affect of the history. Lastly, the lighthouse and it's history was the reason we chose this place. Be sure to take advantage of the shops there and near the on the pier. Mahalo Jamie for a memorable Anniversary! We are back in Hawaii and still talk about your tour!
Unbelievable. Jamie was amazing and she put up with my incessant questioning. She knows the town, the history, and the way to drive a cable car! I would do this again in a heartbeat. Worth every penny. Give Jamie a raise!!

It was a great experience for me and my guests from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I've been coming and driving around the city , but I have never experience my trip as a passenger and with a knowledgeable friend ,driver/friend Arturo. I will highly recommend this trip to my friends.
Fantastic Trip, Jamie our guide was brilliant extremely informative friendly and fun. It was great getting to Alcatraz early as we missed all the crowds. Would definitely recommend this tour as it was the highlight of our trip to San Francisco.
