hey all,
I've been looking on the net for a good tour of Alcatraz, in San Francisco. I found a website that talks about one tour.. The address is below, but I was just wondering if anyone knew this tour, has done it or has done another one that they can recomend.
the website is:
any help would be great. Thanks

Hi When we visited Alcatraz, we booked our tickets on line with The website lets you pre book your tickets which l would recommend as it gets really busy - you print off your voucher and you take it too you simply head to Fishermans Wharf and get your tickets and join the queue! It costs $16.

Enjoy SF - its a wonderful city!

I agree. The website does look OK very fine but the cost is bigger. But, with that tour you get a bus trip around the city with pertinent stops. I took my big bro on it and we loved the narrative and ability to get off three time for 10 minutes. sitting o high up is super for city views. Overall, if you are considering the citywide tour, buy these tix. Note: buy in advance esp. if coming in the summer. They sell out a week before.
