Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Alcatraz and San Francisco City Tour Combo

Escape from the Rock Cruise

Following pickup at your San Francisco hotel, board an air-conditioned coach for a cruise along the city's waterfront. Admire views of Alcatraz and the San Francisco Bay, stopping for photos at Twin Peaks, Golden Gate Park and the Golden Gate Bridge (weather permitting).

Other attractions visited on this tour include some of the city's famous Victorian homes, Chinatown, the Palace of Fine Arts, Fisherman's Wharf, the Presidio and North Beach.

After touring the city, board the scenic ferry to Alcatraz. Arrive at Alcatraz, a former federal prison that's now a National Park and get a brief orientation to the maximum security facility, which operated from 1934 to 1963. Pick up your 2.5-hour self-guided audio tour, available in ten languages, and start exploring. Listen to commentary from former staff and inmates and learn about the stints that famous inmates like Machine Gun Kelly and Al Capone served. When you're finished looking around, hop on the next ferry (ferries depart every thirty minutes) and head back to Pier 33.

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 was the highlight of our trip to San Francisco! It was the most amazing tour I have ever done. What really made the tour so great was the headsets you wore as you walked through the prison. It directed you where to go and totally explained what you were looking at. If you miss this tour you are missing such a great experience.
The City Tour was just ok. It did take us around the city to see a lot of places, but we were not thrilled with our tour guide. He was very opinionated and was just a matter of fact type of person. Had he been more laid back, the tour would have been a lot more enjoyable.
