Alcatraz Combo Tour

Discover the most iconic sights in the Golden Gate City on this unmissable combo tour: visit the infamous island-prison of Alcatraz and enjoy a complete guided tour of San Francisco!

San Francisco Tour

After meeting in Union Square at 9 am, you'll climb aboard one of our luxury coaches, which will take you on a sightseeing route from the bay to the ocean, taking in the sights of San Francisco on a four-hour journey.

The bus includes an award-winning audio guide, telling you everything you need to know about the famous neighbourhoods the tour stops in: see Chinatown, the San Francisco Presidio, Nob Hill, the Civic Centre and much more. You'll hear interesting anecdotes, fun facts and essential information, feeling like a true San Francisco expert after your tour.

The bus tour then winds its way up the 928 feet of the Twin Peaks (locally known as "Eureka" and "Noe")  which stand above the city, from where you'll enjoy a three hundred and sixty degree view of the city: a perfect moment to take those photos sure to make your friends back home jealous!

Then we weave back down to see the Sutro Baths, an emeblematic San Francisco landmark which was the largest indoor swimming pool in the world upon opening in 1896, and used the seawater from the bay itself. Your half-day tour will come to an end with you being dropped off at Pier 33 to board the boat to Alcatraz.

Alcatraz Tour

"The Rock", as it's popularly known, has retained its spine-chilling allure after all these years, and with this Alcatraz and San Francisco city combo tour, you'll get tickets to the iconic sight included in the price! 

See America's toughest prison, said to be impossible to escape from... It was to Alcatraz that America's most notorious, violent and troublesome prisoners were sent, with famous inmates including Al Capone, "Machine Gun Kelly" and Robert Franklin Stroud, perhaps better known as the "Birdman of Alcatraz".

It's since become notorious. Said to be haunted, Alcatraz has been the subject of a number of paranormal investigations, as well as starring in films, the most famous being Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage's 1966 cult classic "The Rock".

Will you be able to escape from the inescapable island?
