Awesome Museum, great for a rainy day in San Francisco

Really beautiful Museum - I live in San Francisco and haven't visited since the renovations. It's way bigger now and I love the new look. There is way more on display now than in the past. There were hotel workers striking next door making a lot of noise, but once I got past them and into the Museum, I couldn't hear them at all and really enjoyed exploring the Museum on a rainy day. I bought the ticket online and used the voucher on my phone to get my ticket. The instructions say to go to any available ticket line - I just picked the shortest line at membership, walked up, she looked up my voucher and handed me a ticket. Pretty easy, took about ten seconds. I didn't see any audio guides, but the agent said I could download the app on my phone and listen for free or they had additional ones I could pay for. I just used the app on my iPhone. Worked great!

Alcatraz way cooler than expected, bus a great way to see the city!

Our bus commentator (not on every bus) was hilarious and informative. When we were on a bus without the live person, the recorded info was great to listen to as well. Doing the combo tour let us see alcatraz when tickets were sold out everywhere! Alcatraz was also a welcome surprise. So much cooler than anticipated. We listened to the audio and hopped back on the boat. Took about 1 hour. We were cramming our days so didn't have much more time to spend than that, but definitely worthwhile!

I definitely recommend this to family and friends.

We had a rough start in the beginning trying to figure out how to use the GoCar, but San Francisco's drivers seemed rather patient with us as we were getting our bearings, so it felt very safe. The GPS guide was fun to follow too, and we learned a lot about San Francisco's landmarks along the way. My advice would be to go for the all-day package and start in the morning so you can have all day to spend time at all the sights for as long as you want and at your own pace.

Great way to see plenty of San Francisco!

The Alcatraz tour was really well organised and very interesting especially the audio tour of the prison. The ticket for the bus was definitely worth the money as we got to see lots of the city and Sausalito. The guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining. The only criticism was the occasional long waits to get on the bus as they were very busy but the operators did their best to get everyone on as quickly as they could. I would recommend this tour.

We loved the user-friendliness of the museum and loved Warhol.

Themuseum is simply stunning, and its staff superb. The collections are tastefully displayed and everything is user-friendly. The only downside I have to report is that the main food offerings were over the top expensive. My suggestion is to have more reasonably-priced items to eat and you will do much more business. This is why I gave a four rather than a five star rating for the museum.
