My wife and I booked this tour mostly for the Alcatraz tickets. I will say the walking tour was very informative and fun. We did see places on the boardwalk that we would have never tried to discover on our own. Our tour guide was great. We were very happy this tour wasn't just overpriced Alcatraz tickets. Worth the extra cost. :-)

Walking tour was nice and informative. Guide took pride in her presentation. Alcatraz was fun too. A little crowded but glad we went through. Thx

Dara was phenomenal as our walking host! She was enlightening and humorous making it very fun and we learned a lot!!! Alcatraz was so good! Ranger John was excellent and the audio tour was fantastic!!!

Like many others, we booked this tour mainly for the Alcatraz tickets. However, we always enjoy tours from locals, and this one was a winner! Dara was an informative and entertaining guide who showed us the highlights as well as the hidden gems of the Fisherman’s Wharf area. She recommended several places to eat in the area (Boudin’s was AMAZING!) and offered loads of knowledge about the Bay Area history, Alcatraz, and local lingo and culture. Even if you are lucky enough to find Alcatraz tickets on their own, we recommend going this route instead by experiencing Dara’s tour as part of your time at the Wharf.

Chet kept a good pace for our tour, giving us background info, interesting stories and enough overview in case we wanted to go back and see the museums, buildings and landmarks in more detail. I’d recommend this your to anyone visiting SF and residents as well.

Guide was knowledgeable about the area and led us directly to the Alcatraz meeting point. I would recommend.
