We loved the Alcatraz headphone tour. Definitely take the headphone guided tour. It has the sounds, lots of information and we felt like we were there. Later we took the sunset cruise which was beautiful. The Golden Gate Bridge is massive. If you get a chance go to Sausalito and drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. Also take a walk over th Golden Gate Bridge. You can see beautiful scenery.
Fantastic Trip from start to finish, we elected to do a late afternoon/evening tour and we where not disappointed, firstly we had plenty of time to wander around Alcatraz which is so interesting and so well done, before heading back to shore to pick up your boat for a wonderful trip to get up and personal with the Golden Gate Bridge they even lay on food and drink, which was plentiful enough that we did not need to go for a meal that evening. Great Value A Must Do
Due to an error of judgement in getting a bus to Alcatraz landing, my husband and I missed our scheduled departure. I was devastated, but thankfully the kind staff explained that it wasn't an issue and we simply went into the standby queue and made it onto the next boat across to the island. The audio tour is an absolute must.
The twilight cruise was done on a very cloudy day, but it was still a great time and the food was better than anticipated!
This tour was excellent, from the Alcatraz audio tour to the Sunset Cruise on the Harbor. I would definitely recommend this as one of the number one combo tours SF. You won't be disappointed.
This was well worth the money spent. Alcatraz although a bit run down was fascinating to visit. The sunset cruise was fabulous and so relaxing. Wish we had more time to go to some of the places we saw from the sunset cruise.
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...
