San Francisco is a gorgeous city and there’s a lot to see and do, but of all the tourist attractions in the area I’d say the visit to the Alcatraz Prison was the most memorable. Not only is there a tale to tell about this prison, but the boat trip to get to it and the spectacular bay views from the prison island, make this a tour to remember. Everything about this tour, from the moment you get on the ferry to the moment you disembark upon return, is highly professional. Not too commercialized, not too crowded, all very well designed to give you the full experience with audio tours that tell you the whole story with lots of interesting anecdotes.
