We toured the immigration facilities on the west side (?) of the island. I had never heard anything about this place and found it fascinating. The CA State Park service has done an amazing job recreating what the newly arrived immigrants found. The rangers were...More

Most people make this trip because it's the only way they can get to Alcatraz. We were part of that group but enjoyed the visit anyway.

I'm glad we took this tour before we went onto Alcatraz. The ride around the island was very informative. I'm not a history buff, in fact history is my least favourite subject, but I did enjoy the commentary, read the information boards and looked around...More

If you are a history buff or you are looking into your family history, this is a must visit place. People talk about Ellis Island in New York all the time but, you don't hear much about as Francisco's Angel's Island. Definitely a must see.

Alcatraz was sold out so we had to book Angel Island as a combo tour. Beautiful island with lots of history but the bees and flies were very bothersome. Also we were in a time crunch and this trip cut short our allotted time to...More

The Tram we rode was designated for the people that were part of the Alcatraz tour only. Granted that tour is seasonal for the summer months and maybe the Trams are used for other reasons outside of that time. But all the... More
