Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Seeing Alcatraz, Muir Woods, and Sausalito together on one tour is a rare combination.
This tour is likely to sell out! The Alcatraz daily ticket allotment regularly fills up weeks in advance, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Alcatraz admission:
Board the ferry to Alcatraz at Pier 33 on the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Enjoy the scenic ride across San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz Island, and disembark to start your independent tour of this island prison. Put on your provided headset to listen to the award-winning audio tour, “Doing Time,” and learn about notorious criminals like Al Capone who were incarcerated here. Hear about escape attempts from 'The Rock,' and listen to commentary from former inmates and staff.

Muir Woods and Sausalito:
Cross the Golden Gate Bridge and travel north to Muir Woods National Monument for your exploration of the giant coastal redwood trees. This old-growth forest is home to some of the planet’s oldest and tallest trees, which you can admire in all their glory as you walk along shady paths.

Then head to Sausalito, a picturesque small town just north of the Golden Gate Bridge that sits between the Marin Headlands and San Francisco Bay. You have leisure time here to walk along the waterfront, maybe purchase a snack (own expense) or perhaps shop in the galleries and boutiques.

NOTE: Due to schedule limitations with Muir Woods, there is a chance that this tour will be held on two separate days. You will be informed prior if your Muir Woods visit will be held on a different day from your Alcatraz visit.

Great day despite the morning rain. However walking in Muir Woods was amazing. The smells and sounds just made walk more inspiring. The stop in Sausalito was short because of time of departure to Alcatraz.

A memorable day

This was a memorable day. We had great weather. The trip was fun and very comfortable. Our driver/guide Antonio did a fabulous job. We learned a lot about the sites on the way to Muir Woods. The stop on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge was breathtaking. Muir Woods is wonderful place to visit and we had plenty of time to take it in. Our stop in Sausalito was perfect for lunch. We took Antonio’s recommendation and ate at nice fish and chips/hamburger place. We had the Alcatraz trip in the afternoon. We were dropped off at the pier and had plenty of time to get our tickets at the voucher window. Alcatraz was outstanding. The park service has done an excellent job with the audio tour of the cell block. I would highly recommend doing that in addition to strolling about the island. Overall, it was a wonderful day. We started at 8 am and got off the Alcatraz ferry around 4 pm.

Even though the weather was rainy and cold, our group enjoyed the tour to Alcatraz tremendously! Our bus driver was very friendly and informative. I highly recommend wearing comfortable shoes as my iWatch showed 22,000 steps during the day trip. However, we did add a stroll thru pier 39 and walked a short distance to our hotel which was located near the Fisherman’s Wharf.
