Interesting bus tour with great stops, which could have taken a bit longer. Very nice guide with quite clear pronunciation. Tour/bus was not crowded so we all had a window seat which was very nice. However, the toilet stunk and if you sit in the back it's not really nice. Tour was well organized and an inquiry shortly before the start was answered very quickly and friendly by email! Would we book it again.

City tour was good as they took us to places we properly would not have seen on our own. Alcatraz was great interesting and an experience but only that we needed to wait 1.5 hours for the ferry over as our city tour finished at 12 and the ferry to Alcatraz was at 1.30. We had no way of getting there earlier. Our ticket stated 1.30 and we were not allowed to get the next ferry. It was a cold day, so standing around was not fun!!! If it was in summer or other seasons of the year maybe but in winter not such a great idea.

The tour of the city is super complete, it is done by covered bus. The 3 hours were not long as we made several stops to take photos and the guide was very nice at all times. The visit to Alcatraz is impressive, you can move freely around La Roca and the audio guide is only given to you to tour the prison. The joint experience was good although a bit expensive for a pack.
