Horrible, taken advantage of. Truly felt lied to.
Aug 2021
Do not sign up for this tour. The actual value of the tour is around 59 dollars. Please know this company probably buys tickets up and resells them at a premium. Do not know why the ferry and Alcatraz services allow this. It take advantage of visitors and tourists that only have a limited of time and do not know the lay of the land.

Felt taken advantage of and did not enjoy the trip knowing when we arrived that we were taken advantage of. You go in together as group tickets with fellow "ticket buyers" that have also been taken advantage of . Of course the tour operator stated to me after I requested a refund that everything stated on their website was true!!! Looking back, it listed things that were already included in a 42 dollar ticket.

Round-trip ferry to Alcatraz Island from Pier 33
• 45-minute award-wining audio tour on Alcatraz Island
• Entrance/admission fee to Alcatraz Island (valued at $41.00 USD)
• 60-minute San Francisco Bay Cruise
• Entry/Admission - Alcatraz Island
• Entry/Admission - Blue and Gold Fleet

Please do the right thing Tripadvisor and do not give San Francisco a bad image with visitors leaving with a bad taste in their mouth.

For others, please beware and go to authorized sites or do your research. Only use these sites for higher priced tickets that you have money to burn.

Hi Genhall Chen +1(808)208-2282. You booked the same day in the morning for a tour that is sold out long time in advance. You were happy to do the tour. After doing it you ask 50% refund. You told me that if I don't accept you will write a bad review. When I refused you wrote that! Great!

Via tour is a scam!
Aug 2021 • Family
Viatours is a total scam! We could have bought tickets for the tour for $40 each at the ticket booth. There was no tour around the bay - it was simply the ferry to/from the island. They are pretending to be a tour group who sold “group”rates of tours but at triple the rate to the customer. They should not be able to do this and Trip advisor should not endorse them. Literally we were told to go talk to a guy in a black van, as opposed to the main entrance!!! Not light!

Hi M9139... I can't look who is behind this number. I am sorry that you missed the Cruise on the Bay of San Francisco. I sent you all the info by email several times and by text again the day before and I explained you when I met you at the beginning of Alcatraz. You should ask me again that you are missing the tour. Please contact me by email info@mustsee.world to send you again all the info and to help you to go on the cruise. Thank you

Awesome tour
This was a fantastic experience! We enjoyed learning more of the history and hearing from some inmates about their experiences. You can tour at your own pace and catch a ferry when ready to go back. The audio on the tour was a little wonky but otherwise it was awesome. A must-see when visiting San Francisco.

Not the right deal
I purchased the packet that included both tours but I was never told that I could use them on different days and times or that I could purchase them separately. Unfortunately I was not able to make it to the second because I had to leave to the airport. So I did not get what I paid for. I would like to receive a refund if possible. They also sold me the tickets at an expensive rate than other ticket booths which was a rip off being how expensive they charged me and did not even tell me that I was buying two tours or else I would not have purchased the other because of time constrain. I literally just paid someone to buy the tickets for me and I could have done that myself, meanwhile I thought I was going to have a tour guide but it was simply someone just making an expensive purchase and ripping me off.

Dear Jose, as I told you I sent you everything at the booking, the day before and when I saw before you go on the boat to Alcatraz. I am sorry you couldn't go on the Bay Cruise. Please let me know when you come back and I will revalidate your ticket for the Bay Cruise. thank you

Gorgeous Cruise
Jul 2021 • Solo
Alcatraz was interesting but my audio device did not work on audio tour. Appreciate boats leaving each hour. Plenty of time to experience Alcatraz in 1 hour. Trip Advisor needs to be a little clearer with what to do when proceeding to the Bay cruise part of tour. A little confusing. The actual cruise around Golden gate Bridge was fantastic though. Best part of tour!!
