The Alcatraz was the highlight of my trip. However the city tour section could be improved by better time management. Overall, the experience was quite worthwhile and satisfying.

After having visited Alcatraz on our own, we had a 1.5 hour car tour of SF city. Even if fast, the tour allows the visitor to have a better idea of the city and of things to visit. Brendan is very knowledgeable about all locations and gives very useful tips on sighseeings.
