Incredibly interesting trip across to Alcatraz. Family of 4 with 2 teenage boys with interest for all. Would definitely pre-book and turn up in good time.

Our family had a great time checking out Alcatraz. As long as you get your tickets early enough, It's smooth form start to finish.

We learned a ton and had a wonderful experience. The audio tour is a great learning tool. The view is fantastic of SF!

After reading so much about Alcatraz and it's history it was nice to see for ourselves what it was all about. We were able to walk around at our own pace. Lots of information and pictures throughout. We took the ferry from fisherman's wharf/pier 39. The entrance fee is included in the ferry price. If you have the time and interest, I would definitely recommend this.

Was nice to do it just to say it's been done, but not super interactive or a lot to see. Didn't grab the audio tour, but that might have made it better so I would grab the free headset, even if you don't use it!
