Excellent Alcatraz tour
Moumita_S, Feb 2020
Alcatraz audio tour was very good. I had no problem collecting the tickets at tours section in Alcatraz landing. The Aquarium of the bay was too small. I would suggest to give it a miss if you don’t have small kids.
Alcatraz - Great. Aquarium - waste of time

My wife and I wanted to visit Alcatraz but by the time we decided to purchase tickets, it was sold out for the day. We purchased this package and figured we'd visit the aquarium as well. Alcatraz was all that we expected and had a great time and it was definitely worth visiting. I would give Alcatraz 5 stars. We were not as impressed by the aquarium. Their entrance fee is $30 and had paid that, I would have been extremely upset. We went through the entire aquarium in no more than 30 minutes and it was lackluster to say the least. I would give the aquarium itself 2.5 stars and that's only because I did not pay for it separately.

We weren’t able to get into the aquarium due to high crowds . I want a partial refund . The audio tour was over crowded

Great tour.well worth the money and very informative. Will definitely attend again when family or friends come to town. Alcatraz island is often cool in temperature so please bring a jacket. The Aquarium was small but beautiful. A great end to our tour and a great place to warm up. Many beautiful fish and animals.
Must see

Had a great time taking the self-guided tour at Alcatraz. The ride took about 15 mins and was on time and organized. The Aquarium is absolutely amazing! You won’t be disappointed.
Great adventure

We purchase the aquarium and Alcatraz combo and loved the adventure. The aquarium was small, but had some great displays. We would do this again.
Alcatraz was prachtig maar combi ticket te duur
Omdat we geen ticket voor Alcatraz konden kopen moesten we een veel te duur combiticket kopen. Het Aquarium was wel mooi maar waren we anders niet naar toe gegaan.
