    It was a great experience. I suggest purchasing tickets from the actual company that hosts the boat ride. Weather was perfect for the day.

    Take the audio tour. Glad I went but felt it was just okay and about an hour was enough. There is an actual tour with a guide that explores the history which I did not take because of timing. It left at 12 and I arrived at 10:30. I would encourage you to check it out as we were greeted by rangers when we arrived who spoke briefly about the property and they were great. Gift store pretty light on sizes and options.

    Our son is 12 and he really was fascinated by all the history. Get there supper early. There’s more people let on the boat than places to sit. It’s not comfortable to stand. The ride isn’t very long though.

    Hi Leah, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your tour and especially your 12 yo son. The ride is only 15min.

    Don’t book this, go directly to Alcatraz website.

    I booked 2pm Alcatraz access. The booking came back as 1:30pm and 240pm. So our family wouldn’t be able to go together. The local person didn’t respond when this issue came up.

    Alcatraz tour was super interesting. Bay City Cruise was a little confusing on how it worked. Wrong link was sent toe but we got it straightened out. Just know that you need your confirmation to go to the booth to get the tickets for the scheduled cruise you want.

    Over priced for what it is, don’t rely on iPhone audio tour, Wi-Fi is a joke and you can’t go back and get the AP equipment. Interesting tour but not worth the high price
    icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
    Dear Richard, I am sorry you had a problem with the audio tour on your phone. Of course you can come back and take the audio equipment. Please email us faycal@mustsee.world to figure out something for you. Thank you

    Had a great time! Be prepared for lots of walking, uphill and downhill. The additional SF Bay cruise was somewhat mediocre.

    Not really happy with the audio portion of the tour. I wanted to enjoy it but was unable to use my airpods with my phone. Their app requires your phone to be up against your ear which I was unable able to do for the entire duration.

    We love the Alcatraz tour. We weren’t happy with the bay cruise. There was no clear instructions were to where to go for the cruise. According to voucher, we were supposed to go to pier 39 but it’s actually at pier 41. We would have almost missed the cruise. We caught the last cruise for the day.
    icon Response from Host , May 2022
    Hello Enaxi, I am glad you loved Alcatraz tour. The Bay Cruise is from Pier 39. Pier 41 is next to it but it is Pier 39. Thank you for bringing that out here. Departure of the Cruise is just outside the Pier 39 not inside. Thank you
