What you can expect
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. Tour package also includes a ferry trip to the picturesque seaside town of Sausalito and a hop-on hop-off trolley tour that goes over the Golden Gate Bridge.
Board your ferry at Pier 33 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.
Either before or after 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 of 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 seaside town and then south to 2 vista points at the Golden Gate Bridge. Hop off and walk over the Bridge before getting back on to catch the return ferry ride back to San Francisco.
