The One Day in San Francisco Tour with Alcatraz

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your tour begins in the morning at Fisherman's Wharf, where you'll meet your guide for a drive around San Francisco. Over the course of the day, you'll get a look at the city's diverse neighborhoods and geography, stopping at several locations where you can hop off the bus to take photos and look around a bit.

    Head across San Francisco Bay via the Golden Gate Bridge to get to Muir Woods National Monument, where you can marvel at the ancient redwood trees for an entire hour (entry fee not included). We will drop you off for lunch in Fisherman's Wharf prior to your Alcatraz tour.

    Back in the city, you'll board a ferry from Pier 33 for the ride across the bay to Alcatraz Island, home to the former prison of the same name. Enjoy the prison's fascinating audio tour as you explore the cellblock, and then return to Pier 33 on the ferry to end your day tour.

    Although I have been to San Francisco many times, this was my daughters first trip. We only had two full days and two part days, so we thought a tour would be a good way to see more in less time, and we were right....More

    Hi have you pre-booked a tour you won't be able to get a ticket on the day go to the website alcatrazcruises and pre-book a ticket. The queue for Alcatraz is long so the likelihood of getting a ticket on the day is zero.
