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.

Wonderful city tour combined with the Alcatraz tour was a great day!

Antonio was a wonderful tour guide and very accomodating. He took us to many sights and we were impressed with how much he showed us! He was very knowledgeable about the city and its history. I would highly recommend Antonio and his tour service. The Alcatraz tour was good -- the audio tour was excellent and was narrated by former prison guards and inmates. Very informative.

Excellent tour bus and Alcatraz was amazing

Really enjoyed both the tours. The big bus guys never let us down no matter where we go with them . Very accommodating especially when I couldn’t fing our tickets in union square . I did eventually but at least they let us in the bus out of the cold and dark . Cheers lads .
