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!
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!
Alcatraz tour was amazing, very educational and fun just to roam about. Need a little more time in Muir Woods so you dont have to rush. Sausalito was beautiful, good shopping and great food.
The trip was a great way to see Alcatraz, Sausalito and Muir Woods. Our bus driver was great, and he shared many interesting facts about the area. We were a little confused about the timing of the trip, so be sure to confirm ahead of time to understand when to pick up your tickets. There was not a lot of time to visit Sausalito if you wanted to eat lunch, but the ferry was a great alternative. All in all, we were very happy with our tour experience.
Alcatraz was great, just remember to take you photo ID with you. Woods and Sausalito were also very pretty
