Overview

Visit Alcatraz and go on a beer-themed cycling tour through some of the city's hippest neighborhoods. This full-day excursion combines San Francisco's history; a ferry ride to Alcatraz and an audio tour of 'The Rock', with its modern craft brewing scene; a bike tour of the city's breweries and bars. With a local guide and a small group limited to 12 people or less, you'll enjoy personalized attention. Use of a bike and helmet is included, as well as one pint of craft beer.
  • San Francisco combo Alcatraz and bike tour
  • Enjoy a ferry across the bay to Alcatraz Island
  • Explore the former prison on a 2.5-hour audio walking tour
  • Discover neighborhoods like the Mission and SOMA during a 3 to 4-hour small-group bike tour limited to 12 people
  • Stop to sample craft beer at three breweries or bars, such as 21st Amendment or Southern Pacific Brewing Company
  • Learn about San Francisco’s ever-changing urban culture from an informative guide
Make your way to Pier 33 and board the ferry for the scenic ride to Alcatraz. Be sure to bring a government-issued ID and some layers, as the ride can get chilly. During your 15-minute ride, snap photos of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge and the city's receding skyline.

Arrive at Alcatraz, a former federal prison that's now a National Park and get a brief orientation to the maximum security facility, which operated from 1934 to 1963. Pick up your 2.5-hour self-guided audio tour, available in ten languages, and start exploring. Listen to commentary from former staff and inmates and learn about the stints that famous inmates like Machine Gun Kelly and Al Capone served. When you're finished looking around, hop on the next ferry (ferries depart every thirty minutes) and head back to Pier 33.

Back on the mainland, eat lunch anywhere in the Embarcadero or Fisherman's Wharf area (own expense). Find your way down to the cycling tour departure point, in the heart of Chinatown.

Embark on a 3 to 4-hour bike tour with a knowledgeable local guide through several of San Francisco's most vibrant neighborhoods. Learn about each neighborhood's history and culture while you stop for beer tastings at three popular watering holes. Bars visited may include Local Brewing Co, Thirsty Bear Brewing, Zeitgest, Southern Pacific Brewing Company, Toronado, Magnolia Brewing Company and 21st Amendment. Your first beer is included; feel free to purchase additional drinks and snacks at any of the stops.

Your tour ends at its departure point.

Our visit to The Rock was capped with a conversation from a former inmate, Bill Baker. Had a picture taken with him and he signed his book, "Alcatraz, #1259".......a book that is hard to put down. Incredible visit and tour and would highly recommend to anyone going to San Fran......but book the trip well in advance.

Alcatraz admission was easy and fast! ...so Excellent.The brewerys tour was nice but the beer was free only at the first brewery, we had to pay at the other two ones. Considering the price of the overall tour, in my opinion, this is not fare.

The Alcatraz tour was great. We had no issues and enjoyed our trip. But, when it came to the bike Tour we were having a great time until the 2nd brewery. As everyone finished beers and chatting my husband and I went to buy our souvenirs and use the restroom. When we came out I watched as the tour guide and the other guests walked off with their bikes and thought ok time to go. We walk around the corner to see they had all left us!!! We were standing there in shock on our bikes like wow. We had literally just been talking to the tour guide as well as other guests and somehow he forgot to do head count and took off without us! Luckily we had asked the tour guide where the next brewery was going to be so we googled the location and headed that way on our own. 10 minutes later the tour guide calls my phone and leaves a very confusing voicemail which I still have. Mind you we were riding bikes so I didn’t hear my phone ringing. Once we stopped at a stop sign he called again and directed us in the direction we should go although we already had navigation. My advice to anyone going on this tour is to ask the tour guide which breweries he will be taking you to ahead of time just in case you get left behind. If that had not happened I would have given this tour a 5 star. We had fun anyway because we are easy going people but I can imagine this experience would have scared most people especially if we had not have had a 20 minute conversation with the guide about which brewery we would be visiting next. I recommend you take the tour BUT save a list in order of which places your group will be stopping.

An interesting tour of downtown San Francisco and a few of its craft breweries. We had to cycle back in the dark so they should consider providing either headlights or starting earlier this time of the year. A highly enjoyable way to spend a sunny afternoon with our adult children.

Awesome tour. You get to see the city up close and personal and visit a variety of breweries with loud local character. Alcatraz lives up to the hype. Well worth it!

My husband and I had a great time! Great way to see the city and Alcatraz all in one day. We wished the bike tour was a little more informative about the city, but overall it was a fun trip.

This tour was awesome! Went to places we wouldn’t have known existed and got in some exercise to burn off our beer. Had such a great time.

Thoroughly enjoyed our brewery and bike tour. I was worried about riding in traffic and the hills but we kept to easy areas near the wharf and it was easy to navigate the traffic with our guide. The breweries were fun and had great beer. We got to see some areas of SF that we otherwise would not have known about. Alcatraz was fascinating - only wish we'd had more time to explore it. Only complaint was that the meeting point for the bike tour was unclear on website and we initially went to the wrong location.

Alcatraz is a must see in San Francisco. Very fascinating, the only slight downside is waiting in line to get on the boat, but that is unavoidable. The audio tour is very interesting and I enjoyed having free time to wander. The bike tour was fun and there were surprisingly few hills! The only downside here is that you have to get to the venue on your own but our tour guide was knowledgeable about the city and it was nice to get off the beaten path and see different areas
