About Alcatraz Tours

Alcatraz Penitentiary was truly The Rock, where America sent the worst of the worst criminals from 1934-1963. Public enemies like Scarface Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly, Creepy Karpis, and the Birdman (Robert Stroud) all learned this first hand.

People on the outside have always been fascinated with Alcatraz. Visitors peered at Alcatraz through telescopes when the prisoners were there, and ever since it was opened to tours, thousands of visitors have come every year.

Alcatraz Tour Benefits
  • Award winning audio tour of the Alcatraz cell house, featuring interviews with former guards and former prisoners.
  • Possibility of meeting an actual Alcatraz guard or ex-prisoner, who are often on the island to talk to visitors.
  • Learn about the 1962 escape that was featured in the movie Escape from Alcatraz. Decide for yourself if they really made it or not!
  • Man-eating sharks? Dungeons? Executions? Learn for yourself what was real and what is only legend.
