    You’re essentially paying for the boat ride up, then you’re on your own. Go straight to the cells and get yourself a headset. Once you do that, there’s not much else to do on the island. Definitely worth the visit

    Had a wonderful time at Muir Woods and Sausalito! Bus picked us up on time (was even a little early so had time to finish our breakfast snack at the Cafe pickup location). Judith was our guide and she was great and very sweet. She went around the bus talking to everyone and had us introduce ourselves and where we were from....which I like. She was also knowledgeable about the area and gave us plenty of information along the way. First stop was the Golden Gate Bridge. I'd recommend in the morning for less crowds BUT the fog is very thick so you won't get a great view of the bridge at this time. Muir Woods is amazing and beautiful. Definitely take a quiet moment in Cathedral Grove. The trees are spectacular...just an overall beautiful place. Sausalito was wonderful as well. A quaint little town with shops and restaurants. If you want some good food A Taste of Rome was delicious!! We took the ferry back so you can stay as long as you'd like. Ferry leaves about every 30 or 40 minutes or so.. Ferry ride back was just a ride back but great views.

    It was incredible!!
    A lot of walking uphills. The tour guide was great and I especially loved the walking Audio .
    The only thing I didn’t like is the headsets were not sanitized between people. Yuck!

    Amazing views and terrific guides. Highly recommend! You won't be sorry booking this trip. We took the sunset tour and, while windy and a little chilly ( bring a jacket!), we would take it again in a heartbeat.

    It was very organized from start to finish. Everyone was very friendly. The bathrooms were very clean. We had a great time and would do it again. There was plenty of seating everywhere. We got lucky and saw two whales under the bridge.

    The Inside Alcatraz tour was very insightful. I've read articles and have seen movies about the 'Rock', but to actually set foot on the grounds so many notorious figures actually also once walked was weirdly cool. The audio tour gave tremendous insight to things articles and movies might have glanced over, or omitted. The Golden Gate cruise was good, but the fog hid most of its majesty. But still a great experience. But, if you go in June, dress in layers; it got cold on the water.

    We had an amazing time with this tour package. The operator was easy to work with, friendly and efficient. We picked up bikes early, they were great quality, and we spent the day burning our legs out in the San Fran hills. It was a perfect way to see Golden Gate Park and all the great little spots around the area. The Alcatraz tour was as expected. Great to check off the must see list.

    I would definitely recommend this package with this operator.

    Laid-back yet professional. Safe. Capt. Maneuvered the sailboat several times to offer multiple sunset views from various places around the bay. Worth the cost. I recommend it.

    Right from the start all the staff were amazing. Devon greeted us and took us aboard, We were shown around and told what to expect from the cruise. Great facilities on board. Well worth the money and would highly recommend.

    Small sailing experience. We had 11 people on board. Fun to be so close to the water. Deck hand who served drinks was personable. Highly recommend.

    We had a fantastic time out on the bay. I enjoy being part of a sailing experience and that's exactly what we got.
    If you're looking for a tour of the bay don't go here. You'll be at the helm most of the time, and with a good wind you'll be tired at the of the trip.

    Good experience and views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. But BEWARE of concessions stand. I purchased a bottle of water, a coke, and a small bag of peanuts. Cost $16.50. When I got a receipt, there was a bud light added to my purchase, $7. Employee shrugged and said that the price seemed high. Canceled purchase and was refunded. Correct price $9.50. Surprised employee working counter didn't catch incorrect price.

    This cruise is well worth it! We enjoyed the professional narration, with interesting information about the city, the two bridges, and Alcatraz, and the views were amazing and ever-changing.

    Muir Wood is awesome. Beautiful redwoods along a nice boardwalk path. Just enough time to walk down the path aways and stop in the gift shop. Would have liked to stay and go hiking in the woods there, maybe catch the next bus back. Could have skipped Sausollito. It's a charming artsy touristy town with nothing to do except walk down the sidewalk. They time it so you will lunch there. Could have skipped and had more time with the redwoods.
