Valerie is a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and extremely enthusiastic. Our driver was the best ( unfortunately I don't remember her name). She also knew the history of the city as well. The two of them were outstanding

This tour was well worth the early start. We were first to arrive for the day at Alcatraz before it got busy. We watched the short film upon arrival and then had an audio guide for the prison cells. It provided a chilling recount into life at Alcatraz. Our tour guides, Joseph and Joan were fantastic! Lunch was well organised and the drive in the Cable car (which was really a bus) provided an overview of the sights in San Francisco. We stopped for many photo opportunities and Joseph was very informative. I would recommend this trip to see Alcatraz in detail and also to see San Francisco's major sites.

The tour of Alcatraz was more than expected. The history and information provided was excellent. The tour in the "cable car" was interesting, informative and entertaining. The tour guide and driver couldn't have been more helpful or enthralling. What a duo ! And the sites we saw and the things we learned of San Francisco was superb.

The boat to Alcatraz left on time and we had plenty of time to tour the facility. We were given a hearty box lunch, then we boarded the trolly for an extensive trip around the SF area. It was slightly chilly so we were given blankets for our legs. Robin and the bus driver were extremely knowledgeable and personable. Robin was happy to take our pictures. We could have never seen all the sites without doing this tour. It was def worth the cost!
