"Visit Alcatraz- Even The Locals Visit" Alcatraz Tip by TravelSimone
Alcatraz, San Francisco: 292 reviews and 488 photos
I am a local and highly recommend a visit to Alcatraz. Rent the headsets and learn a lot about the history of Alcatraz and the SF Bay! The audio tours are available in six languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Japanese).
This is a very popular tour destination and you must make reservations in advance. Try to do this even before you come- if possible.
There are multiple departures everyday to visit Alcatraz, starting at 9:30am with departures every 45 minutes thereafter until 2:15pm. The returns begin at 9:50am and every 45 minutes thereafter until 4:30pm.
The price for an adult with headsets is $16.00 and $10.75 for a child.
Address: In the middle of San Fracisco Bay
Directions: Alcatraz is reached by ferries of the Blue and Gold fleet from Pier 41.
Phone: Blue & Gold (415) 705-5555
