Alcatraz Cruise Date
The date booked is for your Alcatraz Cruise. Alcatraz ticket redemption instructions will be noted on the voucher.
US$ 110.00
Overview
A hop-on hop-off bus pass bundled with an admission ticket to Alcatraz offers one of the best values for San Francisco sightseeing. With pickup and drop-off locations at the city’s most popular attractions, including Union Square and the Golden Gate Bridge, this bus loop makes it super easy to get around. Plus, an Alcatraz admission ticket gives you access to the famous prison site, which is infamously difficult to book at the last minute.
What to Expect
Begin your tour at any of the 20 bus stops around San Francisco. A double-decker bus lets you choose from covered seats at street level or sitting on the open-air upper deck.

Hop on or off the bus at any stop, including top attractions such as Union Square and the Palace of Fine Arts, or ride the entire loop for an informative sightseeing tour. This experience additionally includes walking tours of Chinatown, North Beach, the Barbary Coast, and Fisherman’s Wharf.

Choose between a panoramic night tour to see the city lit up at night, or take a Sausalito trolley tour to explore the quaint seaside town. A ferry ride and admission ticket to Alcatraz is also included. Check in at the supplier office the day before your tour to get your Alcatraz admission ticket. Additional bike rental and entertainment deals are also included.

Big Bus Tour is the way to go!

Hop on/off, Alcatraz and “not so night” tour

While you did get to see a lot of neighborhoods we found less value in this tour than other cities: 1)most buses had pre-recorded narrative vs. live guide, not much to do on stops—we only got off at 3 of them out of 20!...2) the...More

We did the Big bus separate from Alcatraz

The bus tour was wonderful would recommend getting the 2or 3 day hop on hop off pass. The first day we used this we had an amazing guide that added so much of his personal knowledge of the area. Wish I could remember his name....More
