Amazing all day tour in San Francisco!

This all-day tour was a fantastic way to get to know San Francisco as someone who has never been there previously. At Alcatraz, we took the garden tour with Mr. Dick Miner. He did an amazing job with the history of Alcatraz in general and not just the garden topics. His own personal life experiences with Alcatraz were very captivating. After Alcatraz, our tour guide was Ethan I believe. He was also great, he had great jokes and was very friendly. Nobody in our group had obligations after the tour, so Ethan was very flexible with where to go and how much time to spend at each location. His countless recommendations for additional places to spend time and even diverse restaurant suggestions were spot on. The restaurants were great and we visited many of the extra places he recommended. Our favorite location was the "oh wow" right before the Presidio. Muir woods was also very peaceful and beautiful to experience. This package is highly recommended for all ages. We do recommend not having anything planned for after the tour.

Ro was an amazing tour guide, his down to earth, fun and charismatic personality really gave the tour a personal and fun experience. The pick up was exactly where it said it would be and on time, we were called out into our groups and off we went. Muir Woods and Alcatraz were both excellent places to visit neither of them were too busy either

Robbed!!

The tour was decent. Muir Woods was beautiful, but we could’ve just drove there and spent more time had to pay separate to get in anyway. Alcatraz the same. The main problem was that our car was broken into while parked. Stole our sons medications. Spent the rest of the visit getting prescriptions filled. It would’ve been nice to have had some kind of warning about how corrupt the city is. Maybe instructions on were to park, or pick up in a better area. I’ve parked on dark streets in New York City without ever having problems. I don’t usually do tours, and this is why. My advice, visit the places yourself and ride a streetcar for the tour.
