The tour was fantastic and our driver (Arturo) was the best. From start to finish, Arturo showed genuine concern for all of the guests and went above and beyond to make sure we were all having fun. Alcatraz and the GG Bridge is a must for all visitors and the cable car experience can't be beat!

Artero was the best guide I have ever had, he knew the area as he grew up there so he alot of knowledge and shared stories that were interesting. I would recommend anyone who takes this tour to ask for Artero for there guide. we also had a handicap gentleman with us and Artero was so helpful. Thanks Artero you made our trip AWESOME!

Great tour!
We did the Alcatraz and San Francisco deluxe tour. Our driver was superb and hIs knowledge of San Francisco was amazing. The tour covered everything you could think of plus extra. I would highly recommend this tour and tour company it was very well run. An extra 1/2 hour on Alcatraz would have been perfect.

Great tour. It was nice to have a relaxing pace getting to Alcatraz Landing despite our driver being a bit late in picking up our group. We were indeed on the first ferry across to Alcatraz so the crowds at the site were reasonable. We had plenty of time to tour the facility before having to catch the ferry back to port. It was nice to have a tour of some San Francisco sights after Alcatraz. Our guide, Sneaky Pete did manage to squeeze in an extra stop to see a special sight at the Presidio, and it was great especially if you are a Star Wars fan!. Overall, a day well spent.

Early access. Only way to go! Be prepared to line up at ferry. That is the only negative. Enjoyed the self paced audio tour at Alcatraz. Sneaky Pete our trolley driver was fantastic. Great commentary, very entertaining and a bit cheeky!! Lunch from Boudins Bakery was delicious. Best sandwiches we have a had for while. Can recommend the vegetarian and the ham. Saw some interesting sights on trolley tour and it was great going across Golden Gate Bridge. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

I feel really lucky to have found this tour of San Francisco on a motorized cable car, and we had a brilliant guide. First stop is Alcatraz, followed by lunch, then the Golden Gate bridge etc. This was a great day out and I would definitely recommend as a unique way to see the sights of San Francisco.

This tour was great - tour guide was brilliant and the audio tour at Alcatraz was the best we have ever had. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Great day out!

Wish we had longer on the island. There were several unexpected side sights that cut us so close to missing the assigned ferry. We were lucky to get a talk by a former prisoner and then an impromptu talk about how they open and close the cells. So we did not get to finish the tour. But the island is impressive and informative! Just wanted more time here!
