Loved the audio tour and the informational video was good. The history is really interesting. As always very windy and cool. Ferry ride over is fun. No time constraints - you can stay as long as you want during the day.

If you weren't there because you were in jail it would be a gorgeous place. Loved the cell block audio guided tour.

This was a great experience for me and my family. The tour is great! you can go at your own pace because is an individual tour with headphones and also there's various languages to choose from. The trip in the boat is fast and smooth. It's a must to visit!

What can one say, except what a view, what a history. A true must see on one's trip to SF. The tour was excellent and be sure to take time to explore the island on your own. Excellent!
