  • Alcatraz Island and Ripley's Believe It or Not! combo package
  • Visit two of San Francisco's most popular—and very different—attractions

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour unlocks 3 Ripley’s attractions, plus shop and restaurant discounts.
Your experience starts by redeeming your voucher at Ripley's Believe It or Not! in San Francisco at least one day before your booked date. When you do this, you'll receive your voucher for Alcatraz Island and your ticket to Ripley's.

The Alcatraz tour starts at Alcatraz Landing at Pier 33, just down the Embarcadero, where you'll board the ferry for the ride across San Francisco Bay to the island. When you arrive, pick up a provided headset for the self-guided audio tour of the cellblock, featuring commentary by prison inmates and staff. You can stay as long as you wish until closing time, and return to the Embarcadero on any ferry.

At Ripley's Believe It or Not!, your ticket provides access to three attractions: Ripley's Marvelous Mirror Maze, Ripley's Impossible LaseRace, and the Odditorium. In the Mirror Maze, navigate the corners, dead ends, and never-ending reflections to find your way out of the challenge. In the LaseRace, work through the web of lasers, going over and under as fast as possible to reach the end. In the Odditorium, explore the collection of human and animal oddities, from shrunken heads to bizarre artwork.

Your package also includes the Ripley's Guide Book, filled with pictures, games, and facts to take home.

Great Package Deal
, Aug 2019
Had a great time at both places. Alcatraz tickets were sold out so I figured I'd give this a shot. Walked in got out ticket voucher and went through Ripley's and the next day off to Alcatraz. Had no issues and a great trip. Thanks Viator for making this part so easy.
Alcatraz sold out so bought package with Ripleys. It worked out well. Enjoyed both.

So, Alcatraz tickets are sold out several months in advance. These companies buy them (Viator in this case) and package them with other tourist attractions with a markup. We paid $99 each for this package. This includes the kid price as there is no discount for them. The good news is that there wasn't any tax on it. It wasn't a bad deal actually since my kids wanted to see them both though. Just be sure you are going as there are no refunds. My kids are 10 and 12 and while I quite enjoyed Alcatraz, I think that they were a little bored with the self guided headphone tour. There were a lot of steps and a lot of people. It was nice that you could leave on any of the departing boats. Outside of the prison, they have a bit of a museum setup with some people who have been imprisoned, but then made big contributions to society. Again, my kids weren't fully on board. It was neat seeing this island as a city really and learning about the escape attempts of course. The boat can be cold on the open areas. Ripley's is the same format wherever I have gone. Lots of interesting unusual items that Ripley collected over his very adventurous lifetime. Kids always enjoy it. The mirror maze and the laser game also came with this package which was nice. I found this package easy to use. We went to Ripley's in the morning and got our tickets then went to Alcatraz, took time for lunch and sat for a bit, then back to Ripley's. Overall, a decent deal as long as you are interested in both of these (there are quite a few other combination packages and prices vary by demand). I'm not sure younger children appreciate Alcatraz so there is that to consider, but Ripley's is interesting and fun for all ages.
Alcatraz is amazing - Ripley's is a joke

This was the only way we could see Alcatraz "last minute". It's 60 bucks for the two of us. We paid 200 for both attractions because all non ticket holders had to wait until August. You are paying a premium and it's NOT WORTH IT. Alcatraz is an incredible place to visit but a waste of money.
Overpriced Package

Basically the only reason to purchase this package is if you forgot to request Alcatraz tickets in advance on the official website and you don't mind paying a premium of about $60 per person. Ripley's is way overpriced for what it is and frankly we only did it because it was included but I would put the value of it at about $5-10 per person. If you had unlimited access to the laser maze it would be a little more worth it because that was kind of fun but disappointing that only one person at a time could do it and it was so short. Having to go pick up tickets 1-3 days early was also an inconvenience -- don't mind picking up tickets at Ripley but since our boat was at 12:30 p.m. we could have easily done it 30-60 minutes in advance and still had plenty of time to make the boat.

Bought tickets through this site b/c the Alcatraz site had appeared to have sold out. After spending 200 to get tickets to Alcatraz and Ripleys - which I didnt need, two days later I checked Alcatraz website and lots of tickets had opened up for 35! These tickets through Viator are expensive and very inconvenient. You need to pick up your tickets somewhere else and not on the day of. Keep checking Alcatraz site - dont waste your money!

This was a great experience. Alcatraz was incredible. Would definitely recommend this for people to see.
Não caiam na armadilha para turistas de comprar qualquer pacote conjunto com Alcatraz

A visita à Alcatra vale muito a pena por S 35,00,. Comprem com antecedência de 3 meses para fugirem das pegadinhas de pacotes conjuntos.
