Alcatraz Island is the number 1 attraction in San Francisco and it’s not hard to understand why. It is enigmatic, it’s got a mystery vibe to it and its history is fascinating to comprehend. You can see the Island of Alcatraz from any San Francisco Hills. Alcatraz Island doesn’t look that far, yet its prisoners were convinced the city was out of reach.
An Alcatraz tour is pretty much mandatory when visiting San Francisco. Because visitors get there by ferry, a limited number of tickets are available daily. In the summer, it’s not rare for tickets to sell out a week in advance. So please, plan ahead! We hate seeing disappointed guests that can’t get tickets. To book an Alcatraz Island tour, you need to do so on the official website.
