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!

Alcatraz is unreal the feelings you get walking around and listening to the commentary make you feel like you have a real insight into what went on inside the place. On Off bus worked well as able to complete a full trip and work out where you want to get off next round. Cable car is also well worth the ride but if later in the day expect to wait a while

I wasnt overwhelmed by San Francisco, either its architecture, bus tour or its food, but the visit to Alcatraz was a highlight of the holiday and cant be recommended strongly enough.

I received a telephone call informing of our arrival time for the Alcatraz tour and an email. The staff offered suggestions for the on and off city bus tour and how to see everything we wanted to. We ended up buying an additional day. That included tickets to the Aquarium. It was a great trip! well worth the price.

I recommend the Big Bus sightseeing and Alcatraz.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

The day tour of the city was very informative, it would be hard to see all the different neighborhoods without the bus tour. The Alcatraz portion was amazing! It's great that you have a reserved time to go out to Alcatraz, but can take any boat back you want, leaving you to decide how much time you want to spend. The night tour was wonderful, tour guide Dave, was absolutely the best.

I signed up for the Big Bus tour because in truth it was our only way to get Alcatraz tickets. I was pleasantly surprised I used the Big Bus to take the tours around the city, even the night tour, and entire family enjoyed it. Bring your blankets for the night tour, it gets cold! The tour guides were fun and made the trips enjoyable! We would consider this in any big city!
