Excellent all round tour, audio tour in Alcatraz was very clear and easy to follow. Views to and from the island are magnificent. Another bright and sunny yet windy and chilly day in SF. Sunset cruise very good as well, foggy and chilly as usual, impressive views of the almighty Golden Gate Bridge, generous and delicious buffet food.
Fantastic trip to San Francisco! Great job Viator. Exceptional service with booking with Viator. Never knew it could be so COLD in August. Make sure you bring more than a wind breaker. Locals said the real summer weather is in October. Bundle up just in case....it was freezing on the water at night.
Great value for money- we felt this was one of the highlights of our trip to San Francisco. Alcatraz was great and the sunset cruise was amazing! We'd had dinner but if you had a big lunch you could easily get away with having the appetizers as a dinner! Wonderful trip! :
This was a fantastic trip and very informative I would highly recommend this trip I would say this trip is a must if you are coming to San Francisco.
Tour was wonderful! Left on time and easy to board following the prompts. Plenty of time to discover Alcatraz and the evening cruise was also wonderful. The young man who entertained us with his singing and guitar was great! All that was advertised was delivered. I would highly recommend this combo tour to anyone who may be visiting San Francisco!
Our group consisted of myself, my husband and our two children... We loved it all! Alcatraz was a great self -guided tour, and the sailing at night had great food and great music
The boat tour to Alcatraz and the subsequent tour of the old facility was exciting. The best part of this combination tour was the sunset cruise. We sailed under and around the golden gate bridge at sunset.
We were lucky to enjoy the spectacular colors of the bay's sunset and a gorgeous full moon! The staff was friendly and professional. Marcus was the online entertainer who sang and played the guitar. He was outstanding. Our entire family ranked this cruise as the best part of our entire vacation!
We loved it! The Alcatraz tour was very educational and the sunset bay cruise was so relaxing. We enjoyed sipping on our alcoholic beverages and listening to the live guitar music as we sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset. It was the perfect way to end our day!
Of all the things we did while visiting San Francisco, these two tours were our favorites! Alcatraz is a must.... the self guided headphone tour was very interesting, not boring at all. The sunset cruise was wonderful. Absolutely beautiful sunset, great photo opportunities as well as good food.
Alcatraz tour was ok
I was very impressed with our sunset cruise however I would recommend to a friend.
I may even book another one in the future
We tried to book an Alcatraz twilight tour a month before we were to arrive in San Francisco, but it was booked so we looked for alternatives and came upon this tour and sunset cruise. It was fantastic and we got exactly what we wanted! I highly recommend this tour!!
Alcatraz is a must see for all SF visitors. Be sure to book months early to get a tour. The Sunset Cruise is a great evening ending activity for a view of the bay area as it lights up. Very relaxing! The appetizer buffet is delicious and a great presentation by the crew. Also you can meet lots of new people to visit with and find out about them.
Brilliant. My favourite day of my holiday. Alcatraz was so interesting and then to finish off the day with a lovely cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset was breathtaking. The crew were lovely the food was delicious and the perfect end to a lovely day...
This was well worth the money! We had such a great day with both the Alcatraz Tour and the Twilight Bay Cruise!
Loved it! Had a blast
The sunset cruise was especially great. The captain actually kept us out a bit longer so we could take advantage of the fireworks show that was not even supposed to be part of our tour. Gave us spectacular front row seats!
Loved it and so did all of our family
Perfect way to spend the day!!! On Alcatraz, Id recommend doing the audio tour first, then take your time enjoying the rest of the sites on the island. You wont be disappointed, Alcatraz is a must and you will have plenty of time to see it all. After visiting Alcatraz, we had plenty of time to explore the wharf area between piers 33 and 43.5. The cruise was wonderful. Our guide also provided the music as entertainment. He was both talented and knowledgeable. You will find an abundant assortment of food on the sunset cruise, so be hungry. The sites were too many to describe. A very special treat for us was seeing a whale under the GG Bridge. Yes, a whale. Highly recommend this tour combination.
Best day of our 4 day trip to San Francisco.
Sunset cruise was a highlight
The weather was very kind on the evening we sailed and we had some wonderful views of the Golden Gate Bridge. It really was a 'sunset cruise'. The food on board was very good and there was plenty of it. Having read previous reviews, we did not eat prior to boarding and were pleased we chose to do this. Overall a great experience.
