See more, Do more: Alcatraz Private Tours


For groups large and small, this is the most flexible way to experience Alcatraz Island prison and visit San Francisco’s other top attractions. Our “city insider” private tours department will help put together the perfect plan for your visit.

On your Alcatraz tour day you will need 4-6 hours and it begins with a convenient pickup at any San Francisco hotel. If you like, you can begin your tour day by exploring the city’s legendary waterfront, learning the stories of the Embarcadero and Fisherman's Wharf. We can even take a brief coffee break at the Ferry Building.

Then we’ll make our way to Pier 33 where you’ll board the ferry to start your Alcatraz Island tour. On the island, listen to an audio presentation featuring recordings of inmates and guards that worked and inhabited the island. Take all time you like to roam and explore “The Rock”, then take one of the late-morning ferries to San Francisco so your group can reform for the afternoon portion of your tour.

Your Alcatraz tickets can be combined with one or more other attractions to form a customized tour over several days, if desired. Our private tour agents will be delighted to work with you planning a trip for your group to Yosemite, the wine country, Monterey or another destination in Northern California.
