My husband was more enthusiastic to go on this tour than I was, however, I thought it was very well done and includes a boat trip as well. We did book iwell n advance which was essential or we would not have gotten in. The boat to the island provdes views of the city and the bay. The tour itself was well coordinated and informative. It was enlightening for its time and sobering to think about. Both of us thought it would have been helpful or interesting to contrast policies of Alcatraz with current prison policies in high security prisons. The fact that excapes occurred is still hard to believe. For the price, it is a good value. Be prepared for the wind.
