Tour San Francisco and see one of its most iconic landmarks in one day!

Alcatraz is a must-see for any traveler visiting San Francisco. Because of the flexibility and ease of these hop-on hop-off tickets, you have a perfect opportunity to add in a ferry cruise to the island*!

Taking the ferry to Alcatraz will afford you amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Alcatraz Island, and the San Francisco city skyline from the north. Don’t forget your jacket, though – it can get chilly out on the bay! You can use the double-decker buses to get to the pier for your cruise, and to get back to your hotel afterward!

*Tickets are not included in the base tour price. Alcatraz tickets are subject to limited availability.
