The visit was fantastic, but the tour guide was the most awful experience ever! When we told him we were from Mexico, he didn’t hide his dislike for us. All the time he was kinda angry and zero entertaining. The worst guide I have ever...More

Tour with Josh was great! His jokes were a little cheesy but I enjoyed his stories and music. We left at 2:00 PM not 1:00 PM. So plan accordingly. Sit on the RIGHT side of the bus for better views.

I took the ferry back across the bay. Blue and gold ferry as tickets were given out by tour guide as included in tour. Fantastic views of bridge and front view of Alcatraz

I didn't see any whales on our way back and really doubt you will. The captain did not say anything about whales. Yes, better for you to book a whale watching trip separately because their captain/crew are whales experts.

Yes , it is a good experience to view Alcatraz , the Bridge , and the shoreline from the ferry . You can choose what time to come back , but you must book in first . Sausalito is also worth taking a little longer to stroll... More
