A visit to Alcatraz, one of San Francisco’s most popular attractions, can require planning far in advance. Combine your trip to the island prison with a hop-on hop-off San Francisco bus tour, which includes an admission ticket to Alcatraz and a round-trip ferry ride. The bus route features 24 stops, which you can explore at your own pace, and you can choose from a 24- or 48-hour pass option.
What to Expect
Jump aboard the bus at any of the 24 stops along the route, hopping off at any sites that pique your interest. You’ll see city highlights including Embarcadero Center, Japantown, Lombard Street, Union Square, the Golden Gate Bridge, Haight-Ashbury, Pier 39, Chinatown, and North Beach. Hear fascinating commentary about each spot along the way.

Your pass also includes two walking tours, 2-for-1 bike rental, and an admission ticket to Alcatraz with round-trip ferry access from Pier 33. You can also take an audio tour of the prison before catching the ferry back to San Francisco.

Note: 48-hour tickets must be used for consecutive days.
