Combine a full-day bike rental with tickets to Alcatraz in a single package. Head out to Alcatraz on the ferry with your prepaid ticket; buying in advance avoids sold-out days or times, which are frequent. Tour the island with your included 3-hour audio tour, then head back to San Francisco where you can explore further on your own via bicycle.

Outstanding experience. Well-worth the time and cost. We were kind of amused by the National Park Ranger who took great pains to explain that there was a great deal of history behind Alcatraz that had nothing to do with the federal prison (Civil War, military post, etc.) yet the entire tour was then focused on the prison. We didn't mind...just kind of interesting.
This tour was easy to purchase and easy to use. The Alcatraz bike shop hosted the tours and were helpful with booking and trip details. We were were asked to switch our date of our Alcatraz visit to which we could accommodate and they added in a bus tour for free.
The hosts at the bike shop clearly explained everything and were so nice and easy to communicate with.
Highly recommend using this service.
From the ferry ride and porpoise sightings to the sound of the cell doors opening and closing to many memorable photo ops with my 10-year old son. Take your time and explore on your own after the guided audio tour. There are nooks and crannies that aren't on the tour. Definitely recommended for the entire family.
