      Great Taste of San Francisco
      Nancy_C
      , Oct 2021
      After spending a few days in Napa, we planned a full day adventure in San Francisco before heading home. I always enjoy taking a tour of the key highlights so that I can get a taste of the city from a knowledgeable source, especially when my time in the city is short. We took the tour that included Alcatraz with a 90 minute bus tour. We enjoyed Alcatraz and our tour guide Brendon did a great job on the bus tour. He grew up in the area and knew the ins and outs of the city. He stopped in great locations for pictures and was kind enough to take pictures for us. We took his restaurant recommendation and had a fabulous meal! I loved that this tour was more personal and not on a big bus. Plus we received plenty of communication on where to meet etc. I highly recommend it.

      Second time for me, but first time for my 14 yr old daughter visiting Alcatraz. The park ranger guides were interesting and knowledgeable about the history. Overall it was exciting experience for the both of us. We didn't get to experience the City Highlights tour, because we were still walking around the Alcatraz grounds and missed getting on the ferry to be at the 4pm tour.

      SF Excursion is awesome

      The Alcatraz portion was awesome. We brought our own headphones and heard the guided tour through our phones. They had some devices available for those that wanted. Tours were well organized and it was easy riding back on the ferry. Our tour with Brendan of SF Excursion was absolutely awesome! Brendan knew San Francisco so well. Intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the city, historical data and current affairs. We got to see so much of the city all while learning why and how. The tour he planned had plenty of opportunities to get out and stretch your legs as well.

      This was an awesome package to see Alcatraz and do a city tour. The city tour was in a 14 person comfortable small bus and it was a great experience. So much better than a big bus tour. Brendon showed us some really great areas of the city and explained the city really well. Also very comfortable and easy experience. Highly recommend this - we loved it!

      It was a great tour! Taking the ferry to Alcatraz is nice and then you are free to visit Alcatraz on your own. You get a cassette to hear all the details about this jail. Interesting! The tour guide was very good, from England with the English humor! He knew so much history. A great tour!

      We were visiting the area for just a couple days and thought this tour may help us see and do a lot in a little time. It was far more than what we had originally thought it would be! The self-guided Alcatraz Tour was excellent, and it was so easy because the tour company took care of everything- name and ID for adults was all we needed. The San Francisco Tour was a little longer than advertised, but it was well-worth the time for the amount of information (historical, social, culture, personal stories, etc.) shared with us from our tour guide, Brendan, in addition to all the sites we took in, neighborhoods visited, and picture locations. Definitely recommend!

      Memorable San Francisco trip

      Finally stepping inside Alcatraz was awesome. Getting there & back to San Francisco through the ferry was no problem. Our 90 minute tour of San Francisco was great. Brendan, was very nice, funny & informative, I guess because he grew up in the city. Also, getting a text from him the day before to make sure we have all the information we need & being able to ask questions is a big plus, and he answers back right away. The city is beautiful, weather is great, just happy we get to visit. Brendan also takes amazing pictures, so don’t miss the opportunity to ask him. Worth every penny.
