Why take this tour?

We take the stress and uncertainty away from getting Alcatraz tickets by pre-reserving them for you and pairing them with SF’s other two most popular attractions: a cable car ticket and guided Chinatown walking tour. This is a good way to spend a day in San Francisco enjoying some of its quintessential experiences with the help of a local who is on hand both to guide you and sort out logistics.

After giving you a few tips on where to eat after your Alcatraz tour, we leave you to enjoy your experience. On you return, we'll invite you on an introductory Chinatown tour, which we have designed to immerse you in the neighborhood's unique history and culture and give you a few reasons to come back later. If you don’t want to take the tour that day, you can enjoy it any other afternoon during your visit.

Starting near the Dragon’s Gate, we’ll explore the vestiges of the old neighborhood, when it was a seedy red light district full of brothels and opium dens, stopping at landmarks like Waverly Place, Portsmouth Square, and St. Mary’s Cathedral. Our Chinatown tour also visits a traditional apothecary, tempts your tastebuds at some of the city’s best bakeries, and even lets you taste a fresh fortune cookie (an SF invention) at the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory. Before you go we’ll discuss the 8 great cuisines of China and where you can eat them, along with some of our favorite places for dim sum.

Our flight was delayed and there was no way we would be able to make our 11:30 am tour of Alcatraz. We called Cat at Viator to let her know. Cat called our tour manager, Frank who went way out of his way to get us on the Ferry. Cat called us back multiple times to keep us in the loop and Frank was so amazing to get us to Alcatraz even though we were over an hour late. Thank you so much!!

Morris, our tour guide, was fun and informative. I would recommend this option for touring Alcatraz. No waiting in line!
