    I am very sorry Sir. I was upset because you have your reservation and they should let you in or call me. Apologies for the speed of my voice because of that. I am glad you could still go on the tour with your group. I don't know what else I can do for you. Did you receive the voucher for the other tour? You're staff send me a text
    Great Tour

    Going early and off season, there were only three people of the cruise of San Francisco Bay. Great way to see the city via the bay. The audio guide was very interesting. Alcatraz tour was very interesting.... learned so much about the history of this national park. Just prepare to do a lot of walking on the island including a steep hill. I would highly recommend this tour.
    Great Tour and Views

    The Alcatraz tour and the Bay to Bay tour was really good. Very informative and a lot of information was given. The views were amazing in the Bay and great weather day as well. Guides were helpful and the tour was a fun and informative tour.

    Beautiful views of the city!! Excellent experience and very informative!! Enjoyed the quality family time together. Thank you Viator 😊

    This was a really great excursion! The audio tour is very interesting. Make sure to wear walking shoes, as the grounds are steep and sometimes uneven. Give yourself plenty of time to see all of the island! I'd say about 3 hours is enough! Absolutely worth it!
    Great trip

    My wife and I came to San Francisco on vacation, and this was on our list to do. Alcatraz didn’t disappoint, very informative.
    Enjoyable Tour

    Meeting and speaking with the lady who ran the pre-board/boarding area. She has a pleasant demeanor and is very knowledgeable. The tour itself was great. I really liked that you go at your own pace while listening to the audio device as it guides you through the facility. There was also a train available to take tourists with disabilities and/or who could not make it up the long/steep hill to get to the facility. The price included a cruise of San Francisco Bay, which was awesome and can be completed at your convenience either the same day or on another day. We had a very clear, sunny day, the sights were great and the narration was very informative.
    Alcatraz & Bay Cruise Highly Recommended.

    Alcatraz is a very interesting place to visit. Bay cruise is beautiful and relaxing. Highly recommended tour.

    Great trip, it was our first time in San Fran & this was a must see! We would highly recommend this trip to others!
    Alcatraz was great, bay cruise part was unorganized

    We enjoyed the Alcatraz part of the tour. Great directions on how to get to the location for the boat to take you to Alcatraz. You get your own time on the island and can come back at anytime that the boats are leaving from the island. The bay cruise voucher was very confusing. We were told we could take any cruise at any time. When we should up for the cruise tile we wanted they said they were sold out and we were leaving the next day, so we paid for a voucher we cousins even use. Luckily the people that worked at the ticket office felt so bad for us that they let us go on a different cruise they offered. If they hadn’t been that nice, we would have lost out on what we paid for. I called Viator and they offered no refund. So, I don’t recommend this tour unless you’re ok with not going on the bay cruise.

    Dear Scot, thank you for sharing. I am very happy that you did enjoy your tour. Alcatraz is fantastic. For the Bay Cruise, you are able to take any Cruise any time any day following the schedule we sent you. The great team at the box are always happy to help you. If you went to the last departure of the day and last minute the Fleet Week end, that is the busiest week end during the year for the cruise because of the airshow on the Bay and the Cruise is the best way to see it :)
