It was excellent and very informative...The top of the bus is extremely cold at night....bring a coat...we went in August.

Second visit to Alcatraz, this time with my daughter celebrating MOther's Day. Did nit get to see a demonstration of the opening of the cells but other than that the tour was good. Weather was chilly during our visit so did not spend much time outside. Definitely worth the visit but book tickets in advance or else chances of getting in are slim to none.

We loved our tour. The Big Bus tour was great. Jim was a great tour guide. We stayed on the bus through the whole tour because we liked Jim so much and were afraid we wouldn't get him back. The night bus ride was just ok. It would have been better if it was actually dark when we went on it, but it was a good experience all together. The Alcatraz tour was awesome.

What can we say San Fran was an amazing city. The Bus was very informative especally the night tour.
Alcatraz was an eye opener and extremly interesting. A tour not to miss if travelling to San Francisco

This combo was fantastic to spend a whole day sight seeing in San Fran! There were so many options / routes to take on the bus and we even took the night tour too, to see the city lights! All our guides were entertaining and full of knowledge!

Our trip to Alcatraz was incredible! We joined a free walking tour first which included a number of stories about attempted escapes and movie facts. Then we had our own self guided tour which was so informative and real.

Overall, I'd recommend this tour to any family member or friend and even go again if I had the chance to come back!

Thank you for a great and unforgettable day!

Turned out to be very reasonably priced for all the options you got. Loved the sightseeing tour, saw lots and was given the opportunity to alter day due to rain. Trip to Alcatraz was wonderful, an unforgettable experience. All really wellorganised, easy to find and well worth it. A must do in San Francisco!

Bus passing every 15-20 minutes so little to no wait between pick ups, Alcatraz was amazing, if I go back I’ll do the night tour!
