Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Great experience. You can read and learn about lots of things. You can walk almost everywere and see how the prisoners lived there. Before you visit this place I recommend watching the film „ Escape from Alcatraz” (1979). How to get there? The best option is to buy an online tickets because there are limited places.

    there is something so magical and otherworldly about this place. we need to help those that are inhabiting the island and being taken advantage of. before they destroy the whole place.

    The island, as well as Treasure Island, is being developed. Hard to believe folks will want to live in apartments right above the traffic on the Bridge. But the views are lovely. Used to be a military installation, now you see it as you drive across the Bay Bridge.
