Die Alcatraz Tour an Tag 2 war sehr spannend. Alles lief unkompliziert und trotz der Menschenmenge schnell ab. In ein paar Minuten erreichten wir mit der Fähre Alcatraz Island, wo wir nach einer kurzen Einführung (Regeln, zB darf dort nicht gegessen werden) den Audioguide bekamen. Was uns überrascht und positiv begeistern hat war aber auch die Radtour an Tag 1. Adam!! Er ist ein sympathischer Typ, der sein Herz an San Francisco verloren hat, und uns auf seiner Tour genau diese Begeisterung mitgegeben hat! Adam, hat sich gut um uns gekümmert und immer dafür gesorgt, dass unsere (große) Gruppe sicher durch den Stadtverkehr kommt. Vielen Dank für den informativen und herzlichen Nachmittag, Adam!!

Bellissimo tour in e-bike Non si fa fatica Si gira per quartieri meno famosi Ottime le spiegazioni (lingua inglese/americana) pronuncia un po’ strana ma cose interessanti Ti lascia la bici fini alle 19 Per andare a vedere in autonomia Golden bridge / sausalito imperdibile Giro Alcatraz ben organizzato In se il carcere è suggestivo Ma non emoziona

Tag 1 Fahrradtour: Sehr coole und interessante Tour. Unser Guide hat sich sehr viel Mühe gegeben. Insgesamt waren ca. 4 Stunden unterwegs. Nach der Tour durften wir unsere Fahrräder noch behalten alles auf eigene Faust erkunden. Wir sind zur Golden Gate Bridge und zurück gefahren. Mit den E-Bikes hat das alles super funktioniert. Die Fahrräder selbst schon ein bisschen älter, aber liefen zu 100%. Tag 2 Alcatraz: Wir waren eine Stunde vor Abfahrt dort und haben die Tickets geholt, Boarding ab 10:30 Uhr. Alles inklusive. Alcatraz muss man erlebt haben. Einfach unglaublich dort. Die zwei Tage Ticket kann ich nur empfehlen!!
