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.

Alcatraz is Great; City Bus tour, not so much.

We purchased a bus tour and Alcatraz Island visit, it was the only way to get the Alcatraz tickets. The bus tour guide was informative but it is not a great way to see the city. Your are on a nice bus driving in the city, all you can do is peer out of the windows. Photos are nearly impossible to take, we did stop at Lands End, the Golden Gate Bridge out look and at the buffalo pen in Golden Gate park. I would prefer a Segway tour combination or some other tour options.

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.

Very enjoyable for both adults and teenagers!

We all loved this tour (two adults and three teenagers). It was a fantastic way to experience a lot of a wonderful city and to link the sights with so many great movies. Our guide was very knowledgeable and good fun too so it didn’t matter whether we knew all of the movies or not. The stops were a lovely touch and Fort Point was amazing. Bring something warm to wear for this part! Thank you very much for many wonderful memories!
