We love San Francisco ! It is a beautiful city with so many sights to see. Yes, we really enjoyed our hop-on-hop-off experience but probably didn't make the most of it and only went on one route but that was excellent with the ear-plugs to give touristy details. We would have liked to have seen the Redwood trees but time was against us. Alcatraz was most interesting , going from another interesting area at Fisherman's Wharf. We enjoyed hearing about the prisoners and some of the very well known ones such as Al Capone we also learned about an escape and how it was done and did they get away ? This was a fabulous day! We hope we can return one day to see the sights we missed. From Danny and Yvonne

This tour was perfect. My family enjoyed every bit of it. The only downfall is that buses stop running at 5 p.m. so if you are out you will need to find your way back. Gray line was super accomadating though and very friendly. I would reccomend this to EVERYONE.

The day started really badly with pouring rain however as we were waiting for the ferry the sun came out and from that point on the day was brilliant. The prison block itself is quite a climb but if you don't feel up to that there is a small train which will take you to the top. We went on the early tour and although busy it was not crowded. The audio tour is one of the most professional I have ever heard and so easy to follow. It involves comments from ex-prisoners and warders and you almost live life in there. It also tells the story about the attempted escape and the actual escape. It was a quite amazing experience the only odd point was that m y wife felt sorry for the prisoners living in those conditions my view was entirely the opposite. It just shows how the excellent presentation makes you think.

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!

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!!

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.
