This San Francisco and Alcatraz combo tour takes in perhaps the most famous landmark, and certainly the most famous prison, in the Golden Gate City. That, and a complete tour of San Francisco itself, and a round-trip boat to 'The Rock' means you'll see all the must-see sights in the city.
The Rock' as it's popularly known retains its spine-chilling allure after all these years, and with this Alcatraz and San Francisco city tour combo, you get tickets to the iconic sight included in the price!
See America's toughest prison, said to be impossible to escape from... It was to Alcatraz that America's most notorious, violent and troublesome prisoners were sent, with famous inmates including Al Capone, "Machine Gun Kelly" and Robert Franklin Stroud, perhaps better known as the "Birdman of Alcatraz".
It's since become notorious. Said to be haunted, Alcatraz has been the subject of a number of paranormal investigations, as well as starring in films, the most famous being Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage's 1966 cult classic "The Rock".
Can you plan your escape from the inescapable island?
We begin in Union Square, and climb aboard one of our luxury coaches, which will take you from bay to ocean, running around the city on a four-hour journey.
The bus includes an award-winning audio guide, telling you everything you need to know about the famous neighbourhoods the tour stops in: see Chinatown, the San Francisco Presidio, Nob Hill, the Civic Centre and much more, all with a historian in your ears, packed with interesting anecdotes, fun facts and essential information.
The bus tour then winds its way up the 928 feet of the Twin Peaks (locally known as "Eureka" and "Noe") which stand above the city, from where you'll enjoy a three hundred and sixty degree view of the city: a perfect moment to take those photos sure to make your friends back home jealous!
Then we weave back down to see the Sutro Baths - a San Francisco Icon which was the largest indoor swimming pool in the world upon opening in 1896, and used the very seawater of the San Fran bay, before ending the half-day tour back at its start point in Union Square.
The day begins with the Alcatraz Tour. Using their voucher guests should pick up their tickets at the Gray Line Tours booth of Pier 41. They can be picked up as early as 72 hours beforehand, or as late as 8 am on the day of the tour.
From here the self-guided tour of Alcatraz takes place, leaving from pier 33. But be sure to be back in time for the city tour portion of the day, starting from Union Square at 2 pm. There is a shuttle which leaves from 2800 Leavenworth (10 minutes walk from Pier 41) at 1:15 pm.
A valid I.D. document is needed for the Alcatraz tour.
