Wow this sightseeing tour was amazing and we loved every minute. Jaime was a fantastic tour guide warm funny and so knowledgeable and our experience aboard Bernard was awesome and so much fun. Jamie took diversions to avoid heavy traffic giving us such good value showing us parts of San Francisco we would not otherwise have seen . We were so glad we booked this amazing trip in advance and really appreciated the early access as it was so much easier to access the Island and have personal attention from guides in the prison. Alcatraz is such an interesting place to visit and definitely not to be missed.
Great day out and a fantastic way to see the sights of San Francisco.
Full points to Jamie, our trolley driver/ guide for this tour. She was educational and entertaining all rolled into a ball of enthusiasm.
My only change would be an added hour to Alcatraz as there is so much to see, but that wouldn't work for everybody.
You should note the Lunch from Boudin Bakery is just that 'from', not in, as you eat across the road in the wharf area.
This tour was the perfect mix of sightseeing and a great introduction to the city. Alcatraz was great and having the comfort of the cable car was excellent. Our guide, Arturo, was super knowledgeable and a great person in general. I would recommend this.
Arturo was well-organized tour guide. This was my husband's favorite part of our vacation. The tour of Alcatraz was amazing, and the city tour afterwards was a great way to end the day. We were able to get a close view of the Golden Gate Bridge and briefly visit the Palace of the Fine Arts.
Absolutely brilliant. Jamie our tour guide and driver was friendly, helpful, funny and extremely informative. Loved Alcatraz and the top tip of not stopping for a no smoking, no eating briefing was golden! Well worth doing and highly recommend.
Jamie as cable car driver was top, the audio tour in Alcatraz a must!
The tour was great. A must do in San Francisco. The guide was very knowledgeable, right down to advising us to bypass the initial welcome and smoking instructions on Alcatraz Island in order to get ahead of the crowd. Very friendly and willing to assist on all questions. Also loves showing the trams
Well worth the visit but very cold in June, had to buy a jacket there. The cable car was terrific, took us everywhere, Jamie our tour guide was great. We saw more than we thought we would.
Great tour and Arturo was an excellent tour guide. Golden gate views were amazing and his tips on getting the most out of our visit to Alcatraz were very useful
This tour was amazing, Jamie was excellent and full of interesting facts and fun. Nothing was a problem and she went above and beyond in ensuring that we seen the sites of San Francisco

Really great tour to go on and enjoy the city and Alcatraz, very informative tour guide. Very enjoyable and informative.
I thought the price was a bit high. However, after taking the tour, I think it was well worth the money. The guide was excellent and enthusiastic. In addition to Alcatraz, we saw things that I would never had been able to do on my own. I would definitely recommend spending the and booking this tour. Would do it again.
Amazing tour. Art was very knowledgeable about San Francisco. A must-do for anyone visiting the city.
So, so pleased with this trip. We had Jamie as our driver and she was absolutely excellent. We met at Union Square at about 7.30am and were given a cereal bar whilst we started our sightseeing trip. Jamie was really funny and obviously extremely knowledgeable about the area. She dropped us at the Alactraz dock ready for us to catch the ferry about 9am. The ferry crossing was great, as was the audio tour of Alcatraz. As it was early in the day it wasn't too busy. It's such an interesting place with such fabulous views of the city. After the ferry crossing back to dock we met up with Jamie. She drove us down towards Pier 39 and we stopped to have a delicious lunch from Boudin bakery. She then took us over to the Golden Gate Bridge, lots of photo opportunities, then back to Union Square for about 3pm. It was a fantastic day and would highly recommend it to everyone
Our tour guide Jamie Jauffred was absolutely incredible! She made the entire day so much fun and I absolutely loved her attitude! I will definitely do this tour again and will make sure that Jamie is my tour guide!
Great tour had a wonderful tour guide Artorio loves his job and showing the sights of his city.New a lot about San Francisco and had a great personality.
The driver was excellent and although she was not a native Californian she was a wealth of knowledge of her adopted city and state it was enjoyable experience
Nous avons passé une excellente journée. Le tour de San Francisco en cable car nous a permis d'avoir un aperçu très complet de la ville. Nous sommes passé sur le Golden Gate et les arrêts photo nous ont permis de prendre de beaux clichés de chaque côté du pont. La visite d'Alcatraz est très intéressante. Dés la sortie du bateau commencer la visite et récupérer l'audio guide. Les commentaires en français sont très intéressants. Le chauffeur très sympathique a commenté la visite tout le long du trajet mais lorsqu'on ne maitrise pas bien la langue c'est parfois un peu difficile.
I hope I spell her name correctly. Jamie and Betsy were AWESOME. I was worried my husband might be bored because of how long the tour was going to be however, we both had a great time. Jamie was very informative, helpful, enthusiastic, and accomodating. If anyone is considering this tour through Viator, you will not regret it. You get your money's worth and see a lot of San Francisco, besides Alcatraz, that you would normally not get to see on your own. We will be booking through Viator again.
