This is a super-convenient roundup of San Francisco's top sights, including Alcatraz, the most sought-after attraction in the city. A good choice if you're short on time! If the popular City Tour & Alcatraz Admission option is sold out, opt for the City Tour & Escape From Rock Cruise.
Likely to Sell-out!Alcatraz regularly sells out weeks in advance. Book ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
The schedule for the day depends on the availability for Alcatraz. You will be advised of the tour schedule either when you call to re-confirm your tour 24 hours prior, or upon arrival for the tour on your selected date of travel.
Alcatraz sold out?
City Tour & Escape from the Rock Cruise
The next best option is the Escape from the Rock Cruise. This 1.5-hour tour sails under the Golden Gate Bridge and then circumnavigates Alcatraz twice.
Hear sound effects and intriguing stories about Capone, Billy Cook the Killer and Clyde Johnson’s Alcatraz escape attempt. Through the tour's engaging narration, go back in time to the days when this maximum-security prison was the most feared institution in the American penal system.
Please note: the City Tour & Escape from the Rock Cruise does NOT include a ticket to Alcatraz.
GREAT TOUR ...... MUST DO IN SANFRANCISCO......
Excellent tour, well organised and very informative.
City tour driver was excellent and we learn't so much about San Francisco.
Gray Line bus arrived at our Hotel on time. The tour of the city and bridge area was great, and the driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
The boat trip around Alcatraz and the bridge was also superb. The only negative was the 2+ hours to wait between the bus tour ending and the boat trip.
Something to cross off my bucket list. I have always wanted to go to Alcatraz. I love things that have something historic about them. The narrator was very easy to understand. And the staff were helpful as well. Very interesting
A very informative tour and well worth the money. Loved it
I hardly recomend to do the tour. it give you a view of everything you need to see in san francisco.
Totally Awesome! Our bus guide was fantastic. Easy to book and we got to see more that we expected! Well worth it!
Very enjoyable trip
The city tour was very comprehensive and took us everywhere around the city. Highly recommended. The boat trip under the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz was also very good.
