    I recommend taking a jacket as it is quite windy and cool on the bridge.
    recommended, it is tired but worth it, I have no problems with the bicycle.

    I am writing this review so that no one else falls in this trap. The voucher is VERY MUCH OVERPRICED, and I have to admit I was not smart enough to look into this deal. I received a biking voucher which could be used on the day of Alcatraz trip or the day after. The voucher has so much of limitations, with certain date limits. Plus UNLIMITED biking closes at 5 pm. PLEASE DON'T OVERPAY FOR THIS DEAL.

    Thank you for your business! Please review our sales brochure and note that we were able to provide you Alcatraz with everything we promised. The rate we charge is based on supply and demand.

    Leah_C, Aug 2022
    We showed up at 11 to rent our bikes and we were told there were none available even though there were 100’s of them. We should be able to reserve them some now since we’re only given one day to rent them. It shouldn’t be a first come first serve when we have clearly paid way over the value.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Your voucher actually stated you get to rent the bike on day one or the next date. The bike location confirmed that they had bikes available all day long with no issues.
    Fantastic time on Alcatraz and Sausalito bike trip
    Lochlann_O, Jun 2022
    This tour is a fantastic way to see Alcatraz and the bay area! I recommend arriving at Pier 33 30 minutes early, as the queue racks up quite quickly. The Alcatraz experience was excellent - I thoroughly recommend exploring all areas of the island, as there are some great views of the city and Sausalito. There are also some great city views on the left side of the ferry on the way over, so be sure to get a seat on the left. I chose to use my bike voucher a day after Alcatraz, as I wanted some more time to explore the city. I rode across the bay into Sausalito, which was incredible as it was sheltered from the wind and fog. There is a ferry that takes you back to the fisherman's wharf, however, I chose to ride back across the bridge in the hopes of getting some clearer photos of the GG Bridge. I rode a total distance of about 30km return and was stoked with the experience. Definitely worthwhile!

    Sounds like the perfect day!!
    Must do this trip!
    Maureen_S, Apr 2022
    The huge surprise is that the indigenous peoples took over the island in the 60s and bargained for better treatment by the US govt! Touché 👍🏻👍🏻 The birds are phenomenal! Do take a quiet walk down the paths surrounding the prison and be amazed by the gardens and unusual birds. We were able to delay our bike ride until the next day and that was soooo great: we had a whole day to ride over the Golden Gate, into Sausalito (take ferry back) and to go to various places all over SF in the safe, bike-only lanes. Christian at unlimited biking also gave us great restaurant suggestions and adjusted our bikes perfectly to our comfort.

    So fun and so much history!
    MacyEstevez, Mar 2022
    I loved the history of the buildings itself. I had no idea there was living corridors on the island with family and stuff. The island is full of birds and it’s so beautiful and fun to learn everything there.

    Bike on over for some fun is what we say! Thank you for your business as we appreciate you!
    The most memorable was...
    Mercy_M, Nov 2021
    The most memorable was learning about the prisoners such as Al Capone and others. Seeing their recreational center with the many steps and seeing where they played baseball. The most memorable was seeing the fake heads used by the two escape prisoners and the hole they made to escape through.
    Response from Host, Nov 2021
    Thank you for letting us help create those memories for you! We appreciate you!
    Easy! Smooth! Enjoyable!
    Marissa_K, Oct 2021
    Super easy process. Well worth every penny! We really enjoyed Alcatraz. We were intimidated about bicycling across the Golden Gate Bridge but it was perfect!
    Response from Host, Oct 2021
    So much fun!!! Easy breezy is what we do! Thank you letting us be part of your memories!

    Alcatraz is a must. So much history and worth the money. Amazing views of the bay and the bike gives you time to explore more.

    It was cool. I missed my first boat and they were perfectly fine with letting me on the next boat which was cool.
    Response from Host, Jul 2021
    Glad you could make it! Alcatraz is not always available to do so on stand by so you were lucky!
    Last minute booking a great experience
    Anne_L, Jul 2021
    We booked late, and even though the tickets were expensive, it was a fantastic experience. All of the logistics were smooth, the island was fantastic — a must-see for San Francisco — and we appreciated the ability that get the tickets when everything else was sold out. Thank you, Viator! :)
    Response from Host, Jul 2021
    Another great experience! We loved having you! Thank you for your business!
    Bernardo_V, Jul 2021
    So complicated to figure out how to get the tickets , what was included, and how to print the tickets. Given the price ($120 each), it wasn’t really worth it.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Guests should always book direct and in advance to save the most money!
    Dan_F, Jul 2021
    It was just amazing to see the “Rock” to walk the halls, to go back in time! It’s a must do! I’d recommend it!!

    William_H, Jul 2021
    Great experience. Alcatraz was very interesting and the day on the bikes so fun. We rode them over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, had lunch and took the ferry back. Everyone was so nice and even offered suggestions on restaurants.

    David_P, Jun 2021
    This was our first booking using Viator, and we were very pleased. Communication and reliability were terrific. There was a minor hiccup when picking up the bikes, but Sean stepped in with outstanding professionalism and helpfulness—quite impressive.
    Response from Host, Jun 2021
    Thank you for understanding with the small wait. The bike location is a mom and pop location who has two stores on the same street to bounce between. Business is very slow due to covid so the need for an all day staff is not warranted so the owner is on call. You were our only guests that day so he was expecting you when you arrived to come assist within a few minutes. We appreciated your patience in waiting on him to arrive to make your day special. You guys are awesome and we thank you for the five stars!
    Great service and fun experience
    Michael_P, Jun 2021
    My husband and I had an excellent experience with Viator and Tour More Partners when we were in San Francisco. We did the Alcatraz tour and bike rental. The tour was amazing and informative! It was way more than expected. The instructions to the ferry pier and throughout the tour was clean and easy for us. Tour More Partners was more than happy to help us when our travel plans got delayed unexpected. They changed our tour times free of charge. They are extremely responsive over email and there for their customers! Highly recommended by us. We will continue to us both vendors in the future.
    Response from Host, Jun 2021
    We were happy to help! Group services had your name on file so they knew you were coming and understood the situation. We were able to contact them in advance and luckily they had the room for you. This is not always the case as they are sold out and do not always have the space for you. We are glad that Alcatraz groups could assist you! We want future guests to know we are here for them when they need us.
    Great way to explore
    Cindy_G, Jun 2021
    Enjoyed the tour and the biking. It was the only Alcatraz tickets available for our day. The bikes were a great way to explore.

    Once in a life time experience
    Raul_S, Jun 2021
    Post covid experience, the waiting location was lovely. They made sure to take everyone temperature and would say something if a guest was wearing their mask improperly or not at all. The boat ride over was amazing. The chairs were spaced out and upon arrival they sanitized everything down. The actually trip was the best experience I had in SF. I’m a big history nerd and so is my family. We absolutely loved the cell tour. We downloaded the app on our phones and off we went. Such a wonderful experience. Because of covid-19 you are not able to go into the cells anymore but still truly spectacular. A must if you’re traveling to SF. After the tour we explored the rock on our own and it was such a great experience. It is a work out climbing those four steep hills but boy is it worth the climb!
    Response from Host, Jun 2021
    We agree that Alcatraz has been very precise in how to deal with Covid social distance and cleanliness. Safety is the number one priority on the island! We hope you enjoyed your visit and thank you for your business.
