Scam!! I booked the Alcatraz cruise with inside access for usd 97. Save your money and book directly with Alcatraz cruises for half the price. You can literally google it and see the official providore. Don’t get scammed by this company who’s charging twice the price


I bought " Alcatraz Inside and One Day Bike Rental". As it was a last minute purchase, I paid excessively for it which was totally NOT worth the price. I had significant issues with BIKE rental which is via Unlimited Biking. They issue the voucher to redeem for biking which has A LOT OF RESTRICTIONS. I wouldn't of course be able to use the full day biking on the day of Alcatraz tour, plus they have only ONE store where we can pick up those bikes. I recommend re-thinking BEFORE buying them. REMEMBER the ticket has restrictions and might not work around your travel plans.


Nice tour. Bring some snacks. The cell block audio tour was spot on. I would like to see the audio tour expanded to the whole island.


The whole experience was amazing! The bus tour was awesome so much to see with enough time.. and what can I say about Alcatraz, it was simply amazing and so awesome!!!
