We thoroughly enjoyed our day. Started with a bus tour in San Francisco - driver was excellent with his knowledge. We had a gap of over an hour - had lunch then went to the ferry for our ride then did the
audio tour. Very interesting and would recommend anyone coming to San Francisco to book.
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
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!
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.
We had Doug as our tour guide who was excellent, very knowledgeable about everywhere we went and was a great example of a friendly Californian.
Fantastic tour! Booked this as we only had two full days in SF and wanted to include a much as possible. Our tour guide Aaron was brilliant, full of information and local knowledge. We saw so much on the tour, far more than we expected, yet it did not feel rushed because we had lots of stops. Showed us lots of places we would go back to for longer if we get the chance to return to SF. You have to exchange the voucher from bus company for Alcatraz tickets at the pier. We had a good few hours at Alcatraz and it was every bit as good as we had hoped. Highly recommend this tour and especially Aaron. Thank you.
Brilliant day. Well organised. Really interesting.
Be aware that timings are flexible through the day. Our day finished quite late which was fine for us. Don't make early dinner reservations!!!
DO IT! It is well worth it. My wife and I enjoyed both of these tours immensely! To see the city before enjoying the sites, and seeing Alcatraz for the first time in person was just amazing. We were even able to meet and purchased a signed book of one of the last of the inmates that lived at Alcatraz and it too was worth reading for a far in-depth look at what is was like to be imprisoned in this place. San Francisco was one of most enjoyable trips we have experienced and we have been to many places. If you would like to see the city for what it is now and what is was like in the very beginning, take this tour. AND do Alcatraz. Its well worth it!!!
This was a very good tour. You just have to make sure you sit on the correct side of the boat/bus to get the best photos. Obviously in the USA that means on the right hand side, well worth the money!
The SF city tour was very good and informative.
Alcatraz tour was excellent as well.
Both are worth doing.

An excellent self guided tour of Alcatraz preceded by the tour of San Francisco with a tour guide/bus driver was a great way to spend a day in San Francisco and to see many of the sights and to learn about the history of the city as well.
Great and well-informed guide for the bus tour. Great way to see many of the big sights in SF!
Although we were unable to complete the tour to Alcatraz, the bus part of the tour was phenomenal. We saw parts of San Francisco we ddin't know existed. The bus driver was named Joe. He was super. He had a great voice for a tour driver. He was well versed in the area, knowledgeable and kind. We can't say enough about him and the tour.
Fantastic tour with just right amount of info and dropped off in nice time to swap voucher for tickets. Well organised and not too rushed. Lucky we saw the Golden Gate just before the fog came over. Note if you are there June-August there is a good chance of fog covering the bridge till 2ish!
