“This is a great way to see a LOT of the city in a short period of time – I highly recommend it! The tour at Alcatraz is one of the best audio tours I’ve ever experienced. They really take you back in time and make you feel like you were actually there. It is such an incredible experience, and the view of the SF skyline from the island can’t be beat!”

ABOUT YOUR ALCATRAZ TOUR
Alcatraz is a must-see for any traveler visiting San Francisco.
You’ll take the ferry out to the island, with amazing views of the San Francisco skyline, Golden Gate Bridge, and Angel Island.
Upon arrival, you’ll learn a brief history of “The Rock” and then head up to the prison. You’ll be equipped with an audio tour titled “Doing Time”, in which you’ll hear interviews from former inmates and learn more history about Alcatraz. You may explore for as long as you want (the ferry departs for the mainland approximately every 30-40 minutes).
The tour generally takes people about two and a half hours. Don’t forget your jacket – it can get chilly out on the bay!
