San Francisco Land, Sea, Air and Alcatraz Adventure
Reviewed by: Carol R, May 2014
This was amazing. We had perfect weather. Hot sunny no clouds no fog. City tour guide was funny knowledgeable very nice. Alcatraz was interesting but a lot of walking uphill. Catamaran was my favourite but I don't think it would have been much fun if it was cold and foggy. Helicopter ride was my husbands favourite but we had clear sunny day so the views were quite amazing. Our itinerary said shuttle driver would take us back to Union Square which wasn't quite true

A really fun and whaky city tour was followed by the catarmaran ride; unfortunately they cancelled the America Cup race that was scheduled for the same time due to high winds, but it was still a nice sail around the bay. The following day I visited Alcatraz, which was very interesting. Finally I had an aerial tour of the city is a float plane, which is something I've wanted to fly in for some time. A really great experience.

Everyone involved was excellent. My only complaint would be the amount of people that get crammed into the Urban Safari bus. We were literally sitting on one another's laps. The Safari itself was terrific and the tour guide was funny. His jokes were so lame, that they became funny. They were HORRIBLE. The passengers would literally groan at times which made us laugh even more at one another. Over all the entire land, sea, air and Alcatraz tour was a ten. LOL.

Initially, we were looking for a tour including a visit of Alcatraz. We have found this tour which is a kind of "best of" San Francisco. It was perfect for our 2 days there. On the first day: helicopter tour and catamaran on the bay; both were great activities. On the second day: Alcatraz and Urban Safari Tour by bus; also excellent but a long day (3 hours + 4 hours). The bus tour was a bit too long (going up and down Twin Peaks took almost an hour) and the bus itself is an experience of its own (no windows and strong winds !). The guide on the bus was very good. In the end, my family enjoyed this combo tour a lot. But we have been very lucky with the sunny weather. The same tour with fog and showers may not be that fantastic. The price was reasonable and the organization was friendly and efficient.

I must admit I was a little disappointed to be backed into the corner on this one...I did not realize Alcatraz sold out in the summer and the only way to get a ticket was to purchase this type of package, which was a substantial amount of money. Having said that - this is The only way to see San Francisco for the first time!! It literally covers everything...and the tour guides are incredibly knowledgeable, charismatic, entertaining and fun to be around! It really was an awesome experience...thank you!
