I wasn't keen to go but it was part of our ticket to Alcatraz. I'm so glad I went. The Island tour on a tram thing is really educational, it takes you right round the perimeter of the island. You'll see the Chinese immigration centre...More

They have an awesome tour of the island by tram that is very informative. They also do a Segway tour, which I have not done yet. I love to come here to hike and explore. Picnic lunch is a must.
