Alcatraz Audio Tour

No trip to San Francisco would be complete without a visit to Alcatraz, the 'prison of no escape', which is located in the heart of San Francisco Bay and your ticket includes entry, an award-winning audio tour, and a return ferry ride from Pier 33.

As you walk through the jail, the history is brought to life by the real life voices of the correctional officers and inmates who lived on the island during the infamous Federal Penitentiary era.

Hear about escape attempts, ‘The Battle of '46’, food riots, surviving solitary confinement and some of the prison's most infamous criminals including Al "Scarface" Capone and the "Birdman" Robert Stroud.

Your ferry ticket for Alcatraz will be confirmed for the date you request at the time of booking, but the actual time will not be advised until you exchange your voucher in San Francisco. Most visits to Alcatraz are in the afternoon. The self-guided audio tour gives you the flexibility to stay on the island as long as you like.
