Two Day San Francisco City Tour and Alcatraz Island Tickets.

Why We Love This Tour

“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!”

Overview

See San Francisco and Alcatraz Island – all in just 2 Days!

The sky’s the limit on this San Francisco City Tour with Alcatraz tickets. Take a fantastic tour of beautiful San Francisco, and use the hop-on hop-off buses to catch a ride up to the pier for your Alcatraz cruise (included)!

Your package also gives you access to several additional San Francisco tours (including a loop over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and back, and even a night tour by open-top bus to see the city’s lights)!

This comprehensive package has everything you need to navigate the city and see all the sights. But act now – Alcatraz is the #1 attraction in San Francisco and tickets sell out fast (especially in the summertime)!

 

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!

Lots of Sights in Little Time!

“We had a blast going through the town and you see a lot of sights in about half a day!

The ride across the Golden Gate Bridge is just marvelous and the guides and the drivers do a great job.

A big shout out to our driver Ray, our guide Doug and the trainee Coco who did the first 12 stops today for the first time. Great job everyone!”

Team Blake!

“I just got back from SF and I have to say although I stayed there for a very short time, I had a blast and Blake was a big part of it. We “Team Los Angeles” as he named our group had a great time on the bus. Blake was very informative, fun and enthusiastic. He made jokes, played games and he even sang a few songs. Some of them made up 🙂

I want to mention and thank our driver too but I can’t remember his name.

Anyways, If you get on Blake’s boss you won’t regret it. Team Blake Rocks!”
