    Long lines- overly priced. Horrible communication. Once we got to the island very fun experience, but otherwise wouldn’t recommend viator.

    Hello Jade the most important info in your review is that you had a fun experience. For the communication you texted a lot with me, for me it looks like the best communication actually. Remember also that your are visiting one of the most famous National Park in the us with a very limited access capacity since you reach it on a ferry. Stay fun

    The boat rides to both the Bay and Alcatraz were quite smooth, even in the windy weather. My family and friends enjoyed both. We greatly appreciated the flexibility of the tour operators that allowed us to split our boat rides into two separate days.

    2 boat rides and a cellhouse
    Erica_D
    , Jul 2022
    The Alcatraz ferry was a quick trip to “the rock”. You can do audio tour with their handheld device or your phone app in the Cellhouse. Interesting stories. You can take any ferry back so no hurry. Lots of walking uphill. We did the 6:30pm Bay Cruise. Easy to find next to pier 39. There is a snack bar on both boats. The Bay cruise goes to golden gate bridge and back. They talk about San Fran places on speaker. We just sat inside snd enjoyed the ride.

    The ferry ride to Alcatraz was great- The audio tour was so interesting especially because parts of it were narrated by previous Alcatraz prisoners. The staff were personable and helpful.

    The best experiences to discover a new city.

    The weekend was chaotic because of the Marathon and other events. But Viator saved my day! They were quick to answer the phone and help me figure out how to navigate around road closures to get to the Piers, assisted me within minutes when I couldn’t access the tickets through the links, and were so friendly and supportive. If you book last minute, like I did, Viator is like your old-style friendly neighborhood travel agent that arranges everything for you so you can have amazing experiences exploring a new destination.

    Viator communictions regarding trip were very good and clear. Excellent trip and great value for money. Must do trip if in San Fransisco. Might need a jacket or jumper as can be very windy at top of alcatraz and on bay cruise if you want to sit outside

    The self guided audio tour of the prison was well paced and organized. There’s plenty of time to look around and lots to see. The climb is a pleasant exercise but there’s a frequent tram for those who prefer it.
