Well worth paying extra to get this tour. The island has a really interesting history not to mention the breathtaking views you get to see as well.

Like a few other reviewers only went to Angel Island as part of a joint ticket to Alcatraz. Total trip was about 5 and a half hours (both Alcatraz and Angel ISland). Enjoyed Alcatraz but Angel Island was totally unexpected and really enjoyable. Fantastic views...More

Leave on a ferry from the Embarcadaro or from Tiburon for the short ride to the island. Nice hike around island to the immigration center for a historical look at immigrant arrival to California. Beautiful vistas.

...been visiting Angel Island and taking family/friends there for sixty years.

Yes. Nice place to camp in or near San Francisco. Check Reserve America punto com, or use search engine to find site. I tried to include URL, but site would not allow it. Hope this helps
