Explore the history of one of San Francisco's most iconic landmarks—Alcatraz Island. After a ferry ride, travel back in time to the days of Al Capone and Robert Stroud at the site that housed the notorious criminals. Later, board a ferry for a trip to the picturesque seaside town of Sausalito.

Board your ferry at the harbor and get whisked away across the bay to Alcatraz Island, the site that served as a prison for some of America's most dangerous criminals between 1934 and 1963. Step inside the cellhouse for an audio tour that takes you back in time.

Though the prison is rooted in infamy, the island itself is stunning, with rare flowers, nesting sea birds, and 19th century buildings.

Following your trip to Alcatraz, enjoy a scenic ferry ride to the charming city of Sausalito overlooking Richardson Bay. Scope out the seals playing in the water, visit an array interesting art galleries and boutiques, or grab lunch at one of the area's spectacular waterfront restaurants.

Your tour also includes a hop-on hop-off trolley pass beginning in Sausalito. Sit back and relax as the bus takes you through the city and then south to 2 vista points at the Golden Gate Bridge. Hop off to stay in San Francisco, or loop back to Sausalito where you can catch the return ferry ride to town.

Bus route stops include:

  • Marina Plaza Harbor/Bay Model Visitor Center
  • Downtown Sausalito
  • Horseshoe Bay
  • Golden Gate Bridge North Vista Point
  • Golden Gate Bridge South Vista Point

The audio tour of Alcatraz was awesome! Our guide on the Sausalito tour, Patrick, was hilarious. It would have been a 5-star experience if it had not been so cold.

We were unable to do our Hop On & Hop Off portion of our tour package due to the inavailability of seats on two of the two buses we tried to board. Iobe driver kicked us off and the next driver said he had to take a twenty minute break. He also told us one if the buses broke down causing an oveoaf of passages. Our paid tickets were not honored.
