I first visited San Francisco in 1999. Ionly had one weekend for this visit so there were many things I did not get to see. I returned very disappointed that I did not get to take a tour of Alcatraz. I have whined and complained about it every since whenever the a discussion about San Francisco comes up. When I returned to San Francisco in July 2005 I was determined to see Alcatraz or else! Luckily I had an entire week for this trip to San Francisco and plenty of time to see things I missed the last time.

So the guys in hats made their reservation on the Blue and Gold Line Tour for Alcatraz. We had a really good time as you will see from the pictures we took on the tour.

    Fascinating place and cast of characters.We took a late afternoon tour & had to leave before we saw enough of the place. The audio tour was great. Excellent work on this page!

    Very interesting read, Larry. The atmosphere in there must have been quite amazing - certainly would keep you on the straight and narrow !

    This is really interesting. I never knew much of this stuff. Did you see any ghosts? You always hear about it being haunted. Do you guys ever take off your hats?
