What You Can Expect

San Francisco Hop-on Hop-off Ticket and Alcatraz Tour

San Francisco Hop-on Hop-off Ticket and Alcatraz Tour

This 2-day combo sightseeing experience allows you to tour San Francisco at your own pace to see its most famous attractions. Your hop-on hop-off ticket is valid for two days, so you can use it to get to Pier 33, where the Alcatraz ferries depart.

With your included admission to Alcatraz, enjoy the ferry ride across San Francisco Bay, admiring the city skyline and Golden Gate Bridge. When you arrive at “the Rock,” explore the cellblock independently using the provided audio tour, which includes narration from former prisoners and guards. See where legendary criminals like Al Capone and Machine Gun Kelly spent their days in lockup, and learn about the history of this National Historic Landmark District.

Back in the city, your hop-on hop-off bus tour provides convenient transportation to major attractions across 13 stops (see the Itinerary section below for the full list). In the summer, enjoy the fresh air from the open top of the double-decker bus; in the winter, clear screens shelter you from the weather while still providing panoramic views. The total loop is about 1.5 hours, but you can hop on and off wherever you wish to check out Golden Gate Park, Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf and Union Square. Perhaps visit the California Academy of Sciences, go shopping or have lunch in Cow Hollow, admire the War Memorial Opera House or climb Telegraph Hill to Coit Tower. Whatever you don’t see on the first day, you can still do tomorrow!

This was an amazing trip to take, the ferry across to Alcatraz was short and smooth, they explained all the things you could see ant when in the prison block you had audio to tell you the stories, it's great to understand and visualise what it was like when it was in use.
The hop on off bus was great also, it helps to get off and see different areas of San Francisco, the ride across Golden Gate Bridge was great, overall it's great to discover many things and it's history, suitable for educational for children.

Great visit to the island. Bring jacket as it cold there even in the summer months. Eat before you go as there is only water available and you cannot bring food. Loved the audio tour. Worth it!
