Full description
Book a combo package with a visit to Alcatraz and a city tour on an eco-friendly Tuk Tuk and see more of San Francisco than you ever could on foot. Climb the city’s highest hills in a small but mighty vehicle. Marvel at the sparkling San Francisco Bay and the city skyline, enjoy the sights and smells of Fisherman’s Wharf, the green spaces in Golden Gate Park, and the grandeur of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The one-of-a-kind, fully guided, and narrated Tuk Tuk experience takes you on a 18+ mile loop around San Francisco and through more than 15 neighborhoods. Some more highlights include: Dungeness Crab Stands and picturesque fishing harbors, The Palace of Fine Arts, a stop at Fort Point located underneath the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park: De Young, Academy of Sciences, Conservatory of Flowers, Haight Ashbury, Alamo Square and the Painted Ladies, City Hall, Davies Symphony Hall, War Memorial Opera House, Asian Art Museum, Union Square, Dragon’s Gate in Chinatown, and Lombard Street — the most crooked street (depending on traffic conditions).

The Alcatraz portion of your tour will either lead or follow your Tuk Tuk tour depending on your Tuk Tuk tour departure time. Your trip to Alcatraz will begin at Pier 33, where you’ll board the ferry at the Alcatraz Landing for a 10-minute cruise across the San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz Island. This former federal penitentiary was home to the likes of Al Capone, George "Machine Gun" Kelley, and Robert "The Birdman" Stroud. In addition to housing the famous prison, Alcatraz Island also provides some of the most spectacular views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.

The National Park presents a captioned orientation video with historical footage, self-guided walks, exhibits, and ranger-interpretive talks on topics such as "Famous Escapes”. Also featured is the award-winning audio tour of the prison cell house including actual interviews of former guards and inmates. The audio tour is available in 6 languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. After the cell house tour, there is time to visit the Alcatraz Museum, the bookshop, and explore the island. Stay as long as you like. Ferries depart every 30 minutes back to San Francisco.
  • Heated seats and warm blanket for chilly days on the Tuk Tuk

We found it a shame that the tuk tuk driver barely stopped, that we could take our own photos, such as at Mrs Doubtfire House, or that you couldn't get off in Lomboard Str no specific time for the departure by ferry to Alcatraz, it is only called "in the afternoon" - that leaves a lot of leeway and is bad for personal planning if you have other things in mind ...
