BOOK Your Alcatraz Ticket BEFORE you book your flight!

This is no joke, you have to get your Alcatraz Tickets and Tour combos at least 14-21 days in advance. Alcatraz tickets (from anywhere) can only be sold as part of a Tour Combo (restricted by Parks Service). There is also a strict limit per day that can go to Alcatraz for crowd control purposes and that limit is 3,000 people/day – that is all that can go to Alcatraz each day. With over 200,000 daily visitors (June, July and August) trying to get one of 3,000 tickets it becomes impossible — Book Early, Book Now!

With years of experience, please accept our trustworthy tip and get your Alcatraz tour combos now! We see the mistake of others at least 20 times per day and we see how it ruins their San Francisco experience. The rule of San Francisco travel is book your Alcatraz Tour Combo first THEN book your flight to San Francisco.

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.

ABOUT THE OPEN TOP SPRINTER TO NAPA Valley Tour from San Francisco

This Open Top Tour is designed to be the best sightseeing tour experience in America. There is no more beautiful place to have an open top experience, with the wind flowing just above your head, but not in your face, than in Napa Valley. Our goal is to show you Napa Valley, taste some great wines and stop at other iconic wineries for picture stops. We will also enjoy a Picnic Lunch, and a Ferry Bay Cruise to end the tour. To pile on: It’s a small group tour as well. The Roof can close, at will, so for the freeway ride up, there will be a glass roof over your head and once we get into Napa at slower speeds we open up the roof to enjoy the majestic views.
