City Tour & Alcatraz Admission
3.5-hr San Francisco city tour plus ferry and admission to Alcatraz island, including award-winning Alcatraz audio tour. Limited availability and advance booking is recommended
From USD 108.72
Once a federal prison and now a national park, historic Alcatraz sits in the middle of the San Francisco Bay and is a must-see sight. Secure a hard-to-get ticket to the island for an audio-guided walking tour and visit other iconic San Francisco sights including the Golden Gate Bridge, Palace of Fine Arts, and Chinatown on this stress-free tour. All entrance fees are included.
What to Expect
In the morning, make your own way to Pier 33. Your Alcatraz and San Francisco tour starts with a ferry ride to Alcatraz. Upon arrival get a brief orientation on the maximum-security facility from a park ranger and pick up your self-guided audio tour. Listen to commentary from former staff and inmates as you explore the cellblocks.

When your audio tour concludes, hop back on the ferry to Pier 33.

Next, head toward your designated meeting spot on Post Street for a tour of San Francisco. Hop aboard an air-conditioned coach and cruise along the city’s waterfront, taking in views of Alcatraz and the San Francisco Bay on your way to the Golden Gate Bridge (weather permitting).

Spend the morning visiting the historic Palace of Fine Arts, a monumental structure from the 1915 World’s Fair; stop for pictures at the panoramic viewpoint on Twin Peaks; and explore neighborhoods including North Beach, Chinatown, the Presidio, and Fisherman’s Wharf.

Your tour ends back on Post Street.

Wonderful tours. Poorly organized.

The tour of Alcatraz was absolutely stunning. The city tour was exceptionally well done. We got great photos and enjoyed the day. Definitely worth the price! We were both quite surprised by how disorganized the day was. We checked in two different locations before ever...More

Disorganized but interesting

The Alcatraz tour was phenomenal and I could have spent all day there! Getting there was abysmal at best though. I originally booked with Gray Line Tours because they offered hotel pick-up and drop-off at the hotels at which I was staying. That was a...More

Behind the scenes tour is amazing!

A couple of years ago, they launched a behind the scene tour and it’s worth every penny. If you do the day or night tour, it’s a self-guided audio tour but the behind the scene tour is with a guide – you get to learn...More
