This was a memorable day. We had great weather. The trip was fun and very comfortable. Our driver/guide Antonio did a fabulous job. We learned a lot about the sites on the way to Muir Woods. The stop on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge was breathtaking. Muir Woods is wonderful place to visit and we had plenty of time to take it in. Our stop in Sausalito was perfect for lunch. We took Antonio’s recommendation and ate at nice fish and chips/hamburger place. We had the Alcatraz trip in the afternoon. We were dropped off at the pier and had plenty of time to get our tickets at the voucher window. Alcatraz was outstanding. The park service has done an excellent job with the audio tour of the cell block. I would highly recommend doing that in addition to strolling about the island. Overall, it was a wonderful day. We started at 8 am and got off the Alcatraz ferry around 4 pm.

Even though the weather was rainy and cold, our group enjoyed the tour to Alcatraz tremendously! Our bus driver was very friendly and informative. I highly recommend wearing comfortable shoes as my iWatch showed 22,000 steps during the day trip. However, we did add a stroll thru pier 39 and walked a short distance to our hotel which was located near the Fisherman’s Wharf.

Loved the audio tour and views! It was very interesting to see the size and conditions of the cells and try to imagine what life was like there.

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the area and shared many experiences with us. We enjoyed the history of Alcatraz and the little piece of heaven called Sausalito. It is such a pleasant small town with great shopping and delicious food.

This was a tour well worth taking! We enjoyed every bit. The redwood tour is amazing, have your camera ready! Sausalito was great. The bus driver recommended a fish and chip place. We walked farther down and found a family owned deli/store. They make the BEST sandwiches!!! Great place to pick up souvenirs. The Alcatraz audio tour was outstanding! I would add this as a must do!

I like the tour. I wish I could have more time for lunch and breakfast. We were give 1 hour in sausalito along with lunch but I wish I could have had more time to explore the city and finish my lunch.

Great day despite the morning rain. However walking in Muir Woods was amazing. The smells and sounds just made walk more inspiring. The stop in Sausalito was short because of time of departure to Alcatraz.
