Must do this trip!
Maureen_S, Apr 2022
The huge surprise is that the indigenous peoples took over the island in the 60s and bargained for better treatment by the US govt! Touché 👍🏻👍🏻 The birds are phenomenal! Do take a quiet walk down the paths surrounding the prison and be amazed by the gardens and unusual birds. We were able to delay our bike ride until the next day and that was soooo great: we had a whole day to ride over the Golden Gate, into Sausalito (take ferry back) and to go to various places all over SF in the safe, bike-only lanes. Christian at unlimited biking also gave us great restaurant suggestions and adjusted our bikes perfectly to our comfort.

So fun and so much history!
MacyEstevez, Mar 2022
I loved the history of the buildings itself. I had no idea there was living corridors on the island with family and stuff. The island is full of birds and it’s so beautiful and fun to learn everything there.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Bike on over for some fun is what we say! Thank you for your business as we appreciate you!
The most memorable was...
Mercy_M, Nov 2021
The most memorable was learning about the prisoners such as Al Capone and others. Seeing their recreational center with the many steps and seeing where they played baseball. The most memorable was seeing the fake heads used by the two escape prisoners and the hole they made to escape through.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you for letting us help create those memories for you! We appreciate you!
Easy! Smooth! Enjoyable!
Marissa_K, Oct 2021
Super easy process. Well worth every penny! We really enjoyed Alcatraz. We were intimidated about bicycling across the Golden Gate Bridge but it was perfect!
Response from Host, Oct 2021

It was cool. I missed my first boat and they were perfectly fine with letting me on the next boat which was cool.
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Glad you could make it! Alcatraz is not always available to do so on stand by so you were lucky!
Last minute booking a great experience
Anne_L, Jul 2021
We booked late, and even though the tickets were expensive, it was a fantastic experience. All of the logistics were smooth, the island was fantastic — a must-see for San Francisco — and we appreciated the ability that get the tickets when everything else was sold out. Thank you, Viator! :)
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Another great experience! We loved having you! Thank you for your business!

Bernardo_V, Jul 2021
So complicated to figure out how to get the tickets , what was included, and how to print the tickets. Given the price ($120 each), it wasn’t really worth it.
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Items included are clearly stated in the sales program. It was a bullet point list of items. Step one: We send an email that says "AlcatrazVoucher" Step two: Guest Opens the "Alcatraz Voucher" file Step three: Guest Shows the voucher on your phone.
