Amazing to hear and see the history, we learnt heaps. thoroughly recommend this trip!
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.
it was great the office we went to in the morning to catch the bus was walking distance.Every thing worked out just fine.Thank You.
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!
Had a great time .. This was the way to see the city. Between this and the trolleys we saw and or visited pretty much everything we had on our list for the 4 days in SF. The tour guides were pleasant and informative. Willy was a blast!!! Alcatraz was a definite. You must do. Well worth the money!!
Incredibly interesting. The audio tour through the cell block is a must if you go there.
It was well organized, and included everything we wanted to see in San Francisco.
We were a little skeptical about booking with Viator at first but it worked out amazingly for us, There was some confusion at first as to what pier we needed to be at, Once that was sorted the trip began, It was a boat over to the Island and then a quick brief - Then you were pretty much left to your own devices with a headset to walk around the prison area with, The sound effects and detail were absolutely fantastic - Almost real in fact - It was very airy too. You could spend as much time as you wanted on the Island which meant nothing was rushed - We were their for about 4 hours and didn't get board once - Id definitely go back too, What an experience. Glad we can say we have been there - done that and got the T.Shirt Literately - Highly Recommended - One of our West Coast trip highlights.
this was the second time I have done this tour and I have enjoyed it both times , I would recommend it to anyone
Found the tour was efficiently organised and an enjoyable experience!

Excellent tour. Very organized and pleasant staff.
Alcatraz what an experience then to have the flexibility of the 48 hour hop on hop off ticket is the way to see the sights and get your prospective of San Francisco. Highly recommend
We totally enjoyed our tour. Both days we had the singing tour guide, whose knowledge of the City combined with his vocal interpretations enhanced our tour and provided musical references which enable us to continue to remember the information provided. Bravo!

Alcatraz trip was brilliant and the audio guide superb, it really brought the place to life.
We were not prepared, clothing wise. for the bus tour. Part was on an open sided bus and the wind off the ocean especially over the Golden Gate Bridge was cutting so be prepared.
The tour covered most of the City but was a bit rushed and the guides varied in quality of presentation so it is pot luck on who you get.
Best to study the City before you go so that you make the most of the stops. The bus ticket lasts 2 days so is good value.
The hop on hope off tour together with alcatraz tickers was excellent and we'll worth the money. The bus route takes you to all the interesting parts of the city while the guide explains the history and what to look out for. Would be next to impossible to do by yourself via public transporter car.
Great trip, well organised and friendly. Tour was informative and interesting and our guide was very funny also! Would highly recommend this tour : )
The whole experience was brilliant... Good guides,good sights,good fun......excellent!!
Il tuor audio, con lingua a scelta, è davvero incredibile....con suoni realistici....sembre di vivere la vera prigione!!! Amazing!!!!
