We really enjoyed this tour, but we felt a little eerie touring inside Alcatraz. Alot of places to see on Alcatraz. Very interesting and informative. Loved the Bay Cruise, appetizers and drinks. Windy and cold outside, so we stayed indoors.
well worth the money expecially if your only in san fran for a short time
Great time at Alcatraz, the twilight cruise was cold but if you sit inside first floor you can eat tons of appetizers and drink too. The views were great!
We loved the Alactraz portion of the tour. The audio guided tour is wonderful and extremely informational. The twilight bay cruise was very nice and a great way to see the city and the Golden Gate bridge up close at night.
The staff was very knowledgeable about the sights. the tour was lovely and the snacks were great. If it wasn't raining all day, and it was not night time, it would have been perfect! The staff was not only knowledgeable, but they were a lot of fun, as well!
Excellent value for the price. My Japanese visitors truly enjoyed the experience.
Great package. The Twillight Bay Cruise was perfect to end my trip to San Fransisco
We really enjoyed this tour of Alcatraz and also the cruise. Of course, we picked a time of year when it gets dark early, so we weren't able to see a whole lot, but it was enjoyable non-the-less.
A really great trip. Learned a lot and enjoyed the day despite having to think about what an ordeal a spell at Alcatraz must have been like for the prisoners and the guards too. Would say that a trip to Alcatraz when you visit San Francisco is a must
Both tours were amazing. Bring jacket for sunset cruise - it gets cold and windy.
The evening sail was awesome. The boat goes under the Golden Gate Bridge for a breathtaking view.
The Alcatraz tour was nice, you could use individual headsets for an audio tour inside the prison and it gave great insight of what happened there lots of information about prisoners there. Was great being able to enjoy tour personally instead of a speaker talking to a whole group. The Sunset Bay cruise was awesome. There was plenty of snacks and one free beverage with lots of seating at all three levels, my husband and I really enjoyed the scenery and the atmosphere, had a gentleman playing a guitar. Very romantic.

Very relaxing tour with great views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Lovely food provided on board and great musical entertainment. Would highly recommend this tour.
every thing was ready...every thing went smooth...had a great time...would recommend to others
Alcatraz was everything I heard abut and more. They make it sound like the walk up to the prison was awfull and it wasn't nearly as bad as it sounded. The cruise was fun as well. You need to eat before or after since it's just a lite meal but going under the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset was pretty cool.
Highly recomend both.
The alcatraz self guided tour is really well organised, this coupled with the bay cruise is excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
One stop shopping for any tour in San Francisco! HIghly recommend
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!
