Recently did an Alcatraz & Streets of San Francisco tour package. The first day I visited the wonderful folks at the Taylor Street tour center. The manager and entire team made my experience so special. The staff is super knowledgeable. We departed for this tour on brand new Beyond electric bicycles for a tour that showed us all of the highlights of the city. We never got tired because the electric bikes had multiple settings! Highlight of this tour was seeing the views of the city of San Francisco from Dolores park! Next day we headed to Alcatraz Island and had a really fun time learning about the history of the island. This 2 1/2 our audio guided tour made our experience to this historic landmark very memorable. Cannot wait to come back again!

Made my reservation for this tour since it was the only way to get Alcatraz tix on short notice. Glad I did. The e-bike tour with Steve was more than I expected. The ride was easy with the electric bike and saw many parts of the city with a history lesson. Never would of seen this much on my own. Was definitely an afternoon well spent. The ticket information for Alcatraz was seamless too. Do recommend this tour and company.

One and this is VERY IMPORTANT, if you plan on visiting Alcatraz I strongly suggest that you order tickets online at least 2 months, YES 2 MONTHS before your trip. I waited about 5 weeks before this trip and could not get tickets, I tried all the different tours they had to offer, but no tickets were available when I was going to be there.
My daughter had found out that if you were to go very early the day you want to visit Alcatraz ( she got there at 4 am ) and got in line. By doing this you may, not guaranteed, may be able to purchase tickets for that day. While in line she found out that there were some folks that had got in line at 2 am. One other thing before they will allow you in line your entire party has to be there. so one person can't get all the tickets.
The trip is worth the trouble to get tickets. You may stay on the Island till the last boat leaves. They have audio head sets that you wear and it explains the history and famous prisoners that have stayed here.
They also go into the history of the Island, one it was an Military installation when it was first established

The electric bike helps you up the hills, so it's not too strenuous. You don't need to be in great shape to do this
