Alcatraz has been infamous since its earliest known occupation - called "Evil Island" by Native Americans. Today, the infamous island is notoriously difficult to get tickets for. We've taken away the uncertainty, booking them for you in advance, and pairing them with two of San Francisco's top sites - a guided tour of Chinatown and North Beach. This experience grants visitors a perfectly planned day in the city, with an expert local who knows all the ins and outs to ensure you get an insider's look at San Francisco and its most popular sites.
Our guide to Alcatraz Island Ticket with Guided Chinatown, North Beach Tour & Fortune Cookie Factory
Begin your day with a local guide near the Dragon Gate of San Francisco's beloved Chinatown. Weave through time and space down the main avenue through a neighborhood lined with dragon lanterns, imperial terracotta statues, and all the adornment of a "Little Shanghai". Hear the stories of the more seedy aspects during its Gold Rush foundations. Walk by neighborhood landmarks including Waverly Place and Old St. Mary's Cathedral. Stop into a traditional apothecary featuring fascinating Chinese medicine. Snack on some fresh fortune cookies, a San Francisco invention and take some home for the road (on us!).
Switch gears at North Beach, San Francisco's Little Italy. Walk the well-worn paths of Beat poets and cinematic icons. See the cafe Francis Ford Coppola sipped espresso and wrote The Godfather trilogy. Glimpse down avenues where neon signs beckon and the "Azzurri" reign supreme. Head for lunch on your own in this incredible foodie neighborhood. Your guide will set you up to find the local's favourite spots.
After lunch, continue to explore sights along the way to Alcatraz Landing, viewing the section of Lombard Street known as, "The Crookedest Street in the World". As you draw near, your guide will give you insider information on how best to spend your time on Alcatraz helping you collect your tickets and putting you on the short ferry to prison.
As you glide over the waters in San Francisco Bay, take in views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco incredible skyline. (We've chosen your afternoon departure specifically because it's when pesky Karl the Fog is most likely napping!) Explore the infamous Alcatraz prison accompanied by the award-winning audio guide. What a perfect day in San Francisco!
