An interesting contrast between the bleak prison and the freeing beauty of the woods. You'll experience a walking audio tour of Alcatraz, a stroll among the awe-inspiring trees of Muir Woods and a short stop in picturesque Sausalito. Three don't-miss attractions all in one day!
Tour guide Randy is AWESOME. Helpful, funny without being obnoxious and spot on with his other city recommendations. I travel frequently domestic and abroad and I can say that Randy is one of the best guides I've had the pleasure of listening to. Alcatraz was a bucket list tour for my husband and I and if you are going to San Francisco - BOOK EARLY - and do the Muir Woods Alcatraz tour. This is a MUST SEE while in this part of our great country. Kudos to Randy for making the experience even better!
A great visit to Alcatraz starting first with a visit to Muir Woods and Sausalito both of which are really beautiful. Alcatraz itself is still in marvellous condition and the audio tour really completes the picture. Very interesting tour and worth the money and time whilst in the lovely San Francisco Bay Area.
Very good trip to Muir Woods. Driver was very informative. Took us to a great photo spot of Golden Gate Bridge before bringing us back to the city. Got us to the Alcatraz queue on time. The only slight annoyance was the need to phone 24 hours beforehand to confirm the booking which had already been confirmed and paid for beforehand. Also there was a lot of waiting around before the trip started.
Our bus driver/guide made our trip to Muir Woods a lot of fun. Very nice and relaxing ride as well as some fun and informative commentary.
This was a great tour ,loved it!
This tour combo was great and I would recommend it to anyone. If you are going to Alcatraz, which I thoroughly recommend, book it way in advance or else you might not get to go. We went to the Muir Woods and Sausalito in the morning, and then to Alcatraz in the afternoon. The walk to Pier 33 for the ferry to Alcatraz is a little bit of a walk from the drop off point of the first two adventures, so be prepared to walk a ways. But other than that everything was great. The audio tour at Alcatraz is a must.
Great excursion!! The Muir Woods was not familiar and turned out to be realy l enjoyable for three generations! The ride to it is even exceptional as curvy, narrow switchbacks for 5 miles with great views. The Sausalito was basically a great luncheon spot unless you moved really fast but all we needed. Had ask driver for idea and he pointed to a great little sandwich shop that would never have noticed with really good food to take across to the park and eat! Alcatraz was the jewel of the day! SO glad I had called ahead almost 4 months to insure an inside tour. Tickets are really hard to get but didn't know this before. Worth every penny and walking tour was well done with narration at different cells etc. by taped convicts, as what they did daily routines, which cell was their's etc. AND they have a tram to scale the 13 floor hike for us older folks!!! At beginning and end we were at our hotel. What more could we ask? There were 9 of us.
Sausilito and Muir Woods where marvelous ,the boat trip was a bad experience as the Boat was overloaded,we had to stand up all trip long and the boat didnt seem to be safe ,so old,rusty and not comfrtable.
Terrific trip! I would highly recommend this trip to others!
