A must do tour guides are brilliant very informative and we met an ex prisoner who was doing a book signing The cell block audio tour is fantastic so much history and sound effects. A lot to see so requires at least half a day

We booked our Alcatraz night trip with Alcatraz tours in February, but we were not visiting San Francisco until late May. This was the right thing to do as all Alcatraz night tours got sold out in March! The ferry trip to Alcatraz island was...More

Even though the wooded trails were a bit wet for us to ride due to the fog, but the experience was amazing, and we all enjoyed it very much. The horses looked happy, well cared for- these were some of the best-behaved horses we’ve ever...More

My kids were like ‘why do we have to go there’ but afterwards said it was one of the highlights of our trip. The audio tour was so well put together and we all wished it had gone on longer. Amazing to see, hear and...More

Our tour guide, Mary, was excellent. She’s a native who knows her history and is a great story teller. The 4 hour tour is quite comprehensive and also affords some flexibility. You visit most major attractions.

The tour was very interesting and worth the time and money. One suggestion for handicapped is if there were more benches inside for breaks. Having the trolley up the hill was wonderful to have.

I think we booked our tour through Alcatraz Tours. You get the ferry round trip, the audio tour and as much time as you want on the island. Make sure to wear good walking shoes.
