I was desperate to visit Alcatraz, and I wanted to have a concise tour of San Francisco due to my limited vacation time. This tour was affordable and convenient. My tour was held over two days and it actually perfectly worked out! The first day, I got to visit Alcatraz. I spent a good few hours in the island. I spent the rest of my day at Pier 39 and around that area. The second day, I had a fantastic city tour. I enjoyed the Japanese tea garden very much. Shout out to the awesome bus driver, Josh. If your driver is Josh, you are lucky. His tour guide was terrific. I wished I had another tour with him in the PM. It seemed like other tourists in my group booked with him in the PM for a different bus tour. I got to talk to other tourists in my group during the tour, and I loved that part as well. I highly recommend this tour.

Very good tour. Our guide was very knowledgable about the San Francisco area. We enjoyed seeing Alcatraz especially the audio tour.

This tour was an excellent introduction to the wonderful city that is San Francisco and allowed us to decide on the experiences we wished to follow up on given we only had 4 days in the city. The guide was particularly helpful in answering any questions we had. The visit to Alcatraz was the highlight. We would have no hesitation in recommending this tour which represents excellent value for money.

Alcatraz is really worth to visit. The Self guided Tour tells a Lot about the History of the Island. The view from the Island towards the City is Some of the most spezial ones I ever saw. To See the City from there was really Nice.

Driver was great. I believe his name was Dan. He had a vast knowledge of the city and stories were interesting.
Only thing negative about the tour is the time allowed at the stops.....would have liked to spend some time in China Town.
Most stops only had 10 to 15 minutes to look around. That being said we did see a lot of San Francisco from the window of the bus.
I would recommend this tour if you are only in the city for a short time.

Tour on bus of SF was pretty good. Great bus driver who really highlighted some great facts and history as we drove by sites. Several stops at Golden Gate Bridge and Sutro Bath Ruins by coast were awesome for my teens on trip. Plus, the only way could get Alcatraz tickets; highlight of whole trip!

Excellent trip taking in most of sites of San Francisco including Golden gate Bridge culminating in a boat trip to Alcatraz. Full day but at a relaxing pace and break at Lands End. Very worthwhile if you only have a short time in SF which for us was the case as on a cruise. Much cheaper option than taking the cruise offering.
