Description

When your cruise ship docks in San Francisco, combine a guided visit to Alcatraz and a city tour for the ultimate San Francisco experience. Take a scenic ferry ride to Alcatraz Island for an intriguing walking tour with audio commentary, and enjoy the picturesque beauty and iconic attractions of the world-famous city by the Bay.

Likely to Sell-out! Alcatraz regularly sells out weeks in advance. Book ahead of time to avoid disappointment.

Your tour begins by walking over to Pier 41 to pick up your voucher. Then walk over to Pier 33 to board the ferry. Enjoy a scenic ferry ride to the historic Alcatraz Island. Continue your shore excursion with an audio walking tour of the "Cell Block." This former federal penitentiary was also known as "The Rock" and housed gangsters such as Al Capone (‘Scarface’) and Machine Gun Kelly. Learn about one man’s famous escape from Alcatraz, hear stories about the prison's notorious inmates and much more.

After, you’ll have time to snag lunch (own expense) before your city tour portion of this excursion.

Meet for this San Francisco portion at the designated spot on Post Street. After being picked up from your driver/guide in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach, ride along the famous waterfront for views of the San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz Island. Enjoy a relaxing drive around the city and see San Francisco’s top attractions, like the Golden Gate Bridge, as you learn about the area from your knowledgeable guide. Weather permitting, you may also visit the massive Golden Gate Park, a lush green haven in the midst of urban city life, or climb up to Twin Peaks for stunning views of the sprawling city below.

Other attractions you will see on this San Francisco city tour include Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, Palace of Fine Arts, North Beach, Presidio National Park, and views of Alcatraz and the Pacific Ocean.

After your tour, find your own way back to your cruise ship.
