This tour went well but mostly because the lady at the ticket booth was freakin amazing. We had no tickets, no real information and the operator hadn't updated the reservation with the info I emailed, but the lady had it sorted and we were on the boat within 10 minutes. The tour itself was self guided and low key taking as much time as you like. Guided tours can be added upon arrival and likely give far more detail but the kids enjoyed this and we had very little complaining considering all of the walking. Kids are 12, 10 and 9 and they seemed to enjoy it, boat rides are always fun.


We loved our tour of Alcatraz. We spent a lot of time there. Our time to get on the boat was 1 PM but we were able to get on earlier. I think we were there around 11:30 and they let us on the boat then. Make sure to go to the ticket booth and use your vouchers from, this app to get your actual tickets and bring your drivers license with you. We did not end up going to the wax museum. We spent a lot of time on the island of Alcatraz, and we retired and just wanted to go back to our hotel and have a meal. We would highly recommend this Alcatraz tour. It was a lot of fun and very informative.


The fact that the actual prison is at the top of the island and there were escape attempts was wild.


Was amazing place to visit there is a lot history here x boat journey was amazing the narrator was clear and had a lot information


I dont recommend this package.we did not able to.hop.on the cruise as scheduled because we are not on the list ,they advice as to contact the 3rd party but nobody answered.it is not a coincidence because we are 8 person disappointed on this package with same issue ,better directly get ticket from alcatraz website..its like we are scammed.


Although the guides were knowledgeable and shared a lot of additional information about Alcatraz, I enjoyed the audio guide tremendously that I could pause where I felt the need to.


My husband had never been to Alcatraz so we we’re excited to tour the facility. The self guided audio tour was great. The only issue we had as senior citizens was the walk up to the cell block. After several rest breaks we made it and enjoyed the tour.


If you missed getting your Alcatraz tickets early on and they are no tickets available on the official website this is the cheapest combo ticket you will find. Alcatraz is a must see in San Francisco. Madame Tussauds on the other hand is ok. In my opinion, it kind of lost its spirit with all the additional venues next to the oroginal in London.


The trip to Alcatraz was well organized from the ferry ride to the tour. Going back in history listening to the former correctional officers and inmates share their stories from their time at Alcatraz was interesting.


Was a smooth transition from Pier to Alcatraz. We learned a lot and the highlight for us was learning about the Indigenous Occupation in 1969.
