John was our guide for the walking tour at Fisherman’s Wharf. He was excellent. Very knowledgeable and gave good information. Scota’s was a restaurant at the Wharf that he recommended. It is a must! Everything was delicious. The Alcatraz tour - take the self- guided tour with personal recording device. It was robust with information of the history and facility told by the actual guards and inmates.

Some of the most memorable parts of my experience were the beautiful sightings of Alcatraz. Along with The bridge that we went to. The building filled with old arcades was also very amusing!

The walking tour was great, but the company has no control over the Alcatraz ticket time. We were supposed to be on an 11:00 ferry, but it was actually 12:00. Some other groups had been bumped to a 2:00 ferry. The company needs to get this straightened out.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
My sincere apologies for the delay you encountered. Since returning after COVID our normal time slot of 11 AM with Alcatraz has been bumped multiple times due to reduced capacity. We are doing our very best to make sure we are made aware of any time changes (that are out of our control) and can communicate that to our guests in advance. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour, despite the hour delay. We will continue to work with Alcatraz to ensure this doesn't happen to other guests. Thank you for your feedback. Best, Dara

My wife and I booked this tour mostly for the Alcatraz tickets. I will say the walking tour was very informative and fun. We did see places on the boardwalk that we would have never tried to discover on our own. Our tour guide was great. We were very happy this tour wasn't just overpriced Alcatraz tickets. Worth the extra cost. :-)

A Great Combo Package

Like many others, we booked this tour mainly for the Alcatraz tickets. However, we always enjoy tours from locals, and this one was a winner! Dara was an informative and entertaining guide who showed us the highlights as well as the hidden gems of the Fisherman’s Wharf area. She recommended several places to eat in the area (Boudin’s was AMAZING!) and offered loads of knowledge about the Bay Area history, Alcatraz, and local lingo and culture. Even if you are lucky enough to find Alcatraz tickets on their own, we recommend going this route instead by experiencing Dara’s tour as part of your time at the Wharf.

Chet kept a good pace for our tour, giving us background info, interesting stories and enough overview in case we wanted to go back and see the museums, buildings and landmarks in more detail. I’d recommend this your to anyone visiting SF and residents as well.

Guide gentils et professionel ayant des connaissances spécifiques à la visite à pied - aurait avantage à développer ses connaissances générales sur la ville et son historique. Visite d'Alcatraz agréable et intéressante - superbe prise de vues sur l'île et la ville.
