Alcatraz Tours reviews
Alcatraz. It is amazing!! The self guided headphone tour is very comprehensive. The island is beautiful and the information is more than I would have expected. There are views of the Golden Gate..... more »
Truly enjoyed the sunset boa tride, the seagulls and of course the night tour of Alcatraz. The national park guides and after tour talk was amusing and informative. more »
Big Redwoods and an excellent horseback ride on the beach for our whole family! Even though the wooded trails were a bit wet for us to ride due to the fog, but the experience was amazing, and we all enjoyed it very much. The horses looked happy, well cared for- these were some of the best-behaved horses we’ve ever interacted with, and the staff was very friendly. It didn’t take us too long to reach a laid-back beach, so peaceful and beautiful. After the horseback ride , our fun and very nice tour guide drove us to Santa Cruz where we had Lunch in a restaurant located on the Wharf. We ordered a seafood platter, it was fresh and yummy, and the views made it the perfect location for our family. For me personally, the highlight of our adventure was our tour of a beautiful forest of big redwood trees in Santa Cruz mountains. I’ve been to Muir Woods before, but this state park was less crowded and the redwood trees are much bigger and older in this forest. On the way back to our hotel in San Francisco, the tour guide made a quick stop at Apple new headquarter in Silicon Valley. We visited the visitor center and the store (while our son was sneaking out to fly his drone over Apple new campus “it looks like a spaceship from the sky”.) We highly recommend this outdoor adventure and this business. Kelly Sp, Baltimore, Maryland
Alcatraz night tour is a must-do but book your tickets WELL in advance! We booked our Alcatraz night trip with Alcatraz tours in February, but we were not visiting San Francisco until late May. This was the right thing to do as all Alcatraz night tours got sold out in March! The ferry trip to Alcatraz island was quite nice and took us less than 20 minutes to reach Alcatraz island. We really enjoyed this night execution of the prison, no, it was not creepy at all. Dress appropriately/ bring layers; it gets cold and foggy out there.
