Helpful, Courteous Staff and Extraordinary breathtaking views.

The cruise was exceptional. The crew assisted by volunteering to take pictures at the perfect moments. My phone had died and they allowed me to charge it at the bar and then took photos on their phone and air dropped them to me at the end of the cruise. Wonderful photogenic experience. My only tip for improvement, it was hard for me to find the exact pier. Locals may know that Pier 39 is famous for the sea lions that hang out on the dock, but I was new to SanFran and didn't know I was looking for actual living sea lions. I was standing by a statue of of seals on the boardwalk and waited for 20 minutes before I realized the seal statue may not be what they had meant. I asked 3 people and called the company to find out where to be. Leave yourself plenty of time. Also, seals and sea lions are different animals, so please be more specific in describing that the boat leaves from the pier next to where the actual living sea lions sunbathe.

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.

Great Experience. Wonderful Staff. Very Accomodating. A+++

We had more than a pleasant time on this excursion. The staff members were very friendly and welcoming, plus the experience of being on a catamaran and sailing around the by was unsurpassed. We were pleased that jackets were available (which was an extra bonus) as most people may not realize how cool it can get being out on the water for 90 minutes. The snacks were great, too. Really neat to see Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge up so close!

Fantastic 2 day tour, cycling the wine valley was incredible

Honestly only planned to do Alcatraz. After realising we had left it too late to book alone, we were recommended to book as a combined tour. The cycling the wine valley was not our first choice as a few trips failed to get confirmed. However, the cycling through the Napa Valley and wine tasting was incredible. Great tour guide who was alot of fun, great people and great wine. Would do again if we go back.

Awesome! A must do on your vacation! Wheelchair accessible!

It was super fun and we learned a lot from the audio narration around the bay. It is everything you want to see starting at pier 40 1/2 but right next to pier 39 (shopping and food) to the coast around the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. For a great activity worth the admission for a great hour cruise. It’s a must do family activity! I’m also in a wheelchair so it is very safe and accessible!
