The date booked is for your Alcatraz Cruise. Alcatraz ticket redemption instructions will be noted on the voucher.
From US$110.00
Low Price Guarantee
A hop-on hop-off bus pass bundled with an admission ticket to Alcatraz offers one of the best values for San Francisco sightseeing. With pickup and drop-off locations at the city’s most popular attractions, including Union Square and the Golden Gate Bridge, this bus loop makes it super easy to get around. Plus, an Alcatraz admission ticket gives you access to the famous prison site, which is infamously difficult to book at the last minute.
What to Expect
Begin your tour at any of the 20 bus stops around San Francisco. A double-decker bus lets you choose from covered seats at street level or sitting on the open-air upper deck.

Hop on or off the bus at any stop, including top attractions such as Union Square and the Palace of Fine Arts, or ride the entire loop for an informative sightseeing tour. This experience additionally includes walking tours of Chinatown, North Beach, the Barbary Coast, and Fisherman’s Wharf.

Choose between a panoramic night tour to see the city lit up at night, or take a Sausalito trolley tour to explore the quaint seaside town. A ferry ride and admission ticket to Alcatraz is also included. Check in at the supplier office the day before your tour to get your Alcatraz admission ticket. Additional bike rental and entertainment deals are also included.

Had a great tour guide in Leo. Funny and extremely knowledgeable

A great way to learn about the history of SN Fransisco as well as unusual points of interest. Learn and laugh for two and a half hours. Leo is a legend.

Good value

Really enjoyed Alcatraz trip, one of the highlights of our California tour. The big bus tour was interesting, the guides were knowledgeable. This combo ticket included a smaller bus tour of Sausalito and the guide on this was very entertaining!

Hello! I picked mine up on the same day but my tour time was 3:50. As long as your tour time is later on in the day it shouldn’t be a problem. Have a great time!

I booked my tour through Viator. As you are going soon, you may have problems booking Alcatraz as it is rather popular. We booked ours 6 months in advance even though we went in winter. Hope you are able to experience... More
