Alcatraz Island Travel Guide: 116 reviews and 191 photos

My America trip started in San Francisco.

In my hotel I wanted to book a city trip combined with the trip to Alcatraz Island.

The nice lady behind the desk phoned a few tourist offices, and finally I got my combined trip.

That was very important, because it was not possible to book a ticket for the same day to go to Alcatraz at the ticket boot at Pier 41. I was there on Sunday, and the fist tickets you could buy were for a departure on Tuesday.

It was really worth visiting this old prison, especially with the audio guide, like this you could hear different noises from inside the prison.

    We'll probably visit Alcatraz next year. Thanks for your tips. I guess it's better to book tickets in advance?

    Nice page on Alcatraz. Alvin Karpis and Doc Barker committed their bank robbery in Minneapolis and their kidnapping in St. Paul.
